About ARC Flash Solutions

arc flash safety Arc Flash Solutions, Incorporated (AFS) specializes in providing the best in NFPA 70E, OSHA, NFPA 70 (NEC), and IEEE 1584 compliance solutions for a wide array of clients throughout the United States and Canada.

AFS is owned and operated by Aaron C. Mans who brings more than 20 years of design and management experience on industrial, commercial, and institutional electrical projects ranging in size from 2,500 to 2.5 million square feet.

Mr. Mans takes pride in bringing his experience and skills to each project in which AFS is involved ensuring that he has an intimate understanding of each project on which AFS works. Mr. Mans’ possesses a large and diverse skill set few can match with regard to performing Arc Flash Hazard and Short Circuit Analyses, Equipment Withstand Evaluations, Selective Protective Device Coordinations, and Series Rating of Equipment. Mr. Mans served as a Senior Electrical Engineer and Project Manager for large consulting engineering firms and architectural firms.

During his time in the design industry, Mr. Mans quickly realized a lack of compliance specialists. Individuals and companies well versed in NFPA 70E, OSHA, NFPA 70, and IEEE 1584 compliance needs were in short demand. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Mans opened AFS with the following mission statement:
 

SAVING LIVES AND IMPROVING AWARENESS FROM SUPERIOR ARC FLASH ANALYSIS.

Recent Arc Flash Project Experience

  • Honeywell Aerospace 10 square mile Campus-Phoenix, Arizona. SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work, and Shock Hazard information as required. In addition, the (27) 69kV substation’s protective devices on the ten square mile campus were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability.
  • Childrens Hospital Madera 500,000 square foot-Madera California. SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Analysis included 5 MW of onsite generation and 47 separate critical, equipment, and emergency transfer switches. The hospital owns a 117kV substation which was modeled as well according to its two connections to the grid more than 2 miles away. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve system reliability.
  • Solo Cup 2.5 Million square foot Manufacturing/Warehouse-Dallas, Texas. Onsite data collection for more than 6 weeks to produce new schematic for use in modeling. Facility included 3 service entries, with 2 onsite 69kV substations, and the other service coming from an underground 120kV line. Entrances traveled to more than 45 sets of switchgear, each feeding equipment, bus duct, and other loads throughout the plant. Data collection facilitated SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability.
  • Nieman Marcus 1.5 Million square foot Shipping/Office/Warehouse-Dallas, Texas. Onsite data collection to produce new schematic for use in modeling. Facility included 2 service entries coming from an underground 119kV line. Entrances traveled to more than 10 sets of switchgear, each feeding equipment, bus duct, and other loads throughout the plant. Data collection facilitated SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability.
  • Harris Rebar 180,000 square foot Manufacturing/Office/Warehouse-Auburn, Washington. Onsite data collection to produce new schematic for use in modeling. Facility included 2 service entries coming from an underground 69kV line. Entrances traveled to more than 5 sets of switchgear, each feeding equipment, bus duct, and other loads throughout the plant. Data collection facilitated SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability.
  • Honeywell Safety Products 250,000 square foot Manufacturing/Office/Warehouse-Charleston, South Carolina. Onsite data collection to produce new schematic for use in modeling. Facility included 3 service entries coming from an underground 110kV line. Entrances traveled to more than 50 sets of switchgear, each feeding equipment, bus duct, and other loads throughout the campus of 13 buildings. Data collection facilitated SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability. Hazard/Division assessment and Equipment Evaluation were included as well.
  • Clemson University onsite Power Distribution. Produced one line of campus electrical distribution, both overhead and underground, so that overcurrent protection devices and equipment could be evaluated. Facility included 3 generation stations as well as 3 129kV utility connections. Data collection facilitated SKM Modeling to create Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Analysis, Equipment Withstand Evaluation, Series Connected Equipment Coordination, and Selective Protective Device Coordination. Analyses were used to create NFPA 70E compliant labels for equipment listing necessary PPE information for energized work and Shock Hazard information. Campus substation overcurrent protection devices were coordinated according to the new analyses to minimize arc flash hazard and improve reliability. Hazard/Division assessment and Equipment Evaluation were included as well.
