Our Services Include:
Dielectric Testing and ANSI Inspections for bucket trucks, digger derricks, and other specialty fleet
Dielectric testing and ANSI inspections are crucial for ensuring the safety and reliability of utility vehicles like bucket trucks and digger derricks. These inspections involve a comprehensive assessment of the vehicle's electrical insulation properties and operational functionality to identify any potential hazards or faults. By conducting regular fleet inspections and dielectric testing, operators can mitigate the risk of electrical accidents and ensure compliance with safety standards.
Ultimate Tool & Safety has been conducting dielectric testing for over 15 years and our customer base includes utilities, cooperatives, and contractors across the country. Our mobile technicians will come to you to minimize your down time and ensure your vehicles are safe for use and properly documented.
I. DOT Inspections
The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires annual inspections of all commercial motor vehicles. These inspections cover various mechanical aspects of the vehicle, including brake performance, tire health, lighting, and other functionality. Our mobile technicians are deeply experienced in providing Federal DOT inspections and can help you proactively identify vehicular hazards and ensure your vehicles are operating safely on the roads, as well as keep you in compliance with DOT inspection requirements.
II. Inspections of cranes, forklifts, and other industrial vehicles
Inspections of cranes, forklifts, and other industrial vehicles are crucial to maintaining a safe working environment and preventing accidents. These inspections involve a comprehensive assessment of the equipment's condition, functionality, and compliance with safety standards. By inspecting cranes, forklifts, and other industrial vehicles regularly, potential issues or defects can be identified and addressed promptly, minimizing the risk of equipment failure or operator error. Inspections typically cover critical components such as hydraulics, controls, brakes, and structural integrity.
III. Preventive Maintenance (PM) and Cleaning Services
Fleet is one of a utility construction company’s largest investments, so ensuring its longevity is paramount. By implementing a proactive approach, businesses can prevent breakdowns, minimize downtime, and extend the lifespan of their assets.To achieve this, vehicle manufacturers provide detailed lists of Preventive Maintenance to complete annually, e.g. lubrication, filter replacements, bolt torquing, and other calibrations. Our mobile crews can conduct this Preventive Maintenance (PM) service on your vehicles, regardless of equipment type.
Additionally, dirt and debris on a boom can result in electrical hazards and reduce the life of a vehicle. Our technicians offer boom cleaning and waxing to remove these minerals and help ensure equipment safety and functionality.
IV. Testing and Inspections of Blankets, Linehose, and Rubber Coverup
ASTM requires the annual inspection and dielectric testing of all rubber blankets, rubber and plastic line hose, and other secondary coverup used to safeguard workers from electric shocks and other potential hazards. During testing, these items are examined for any signs of wear, tear, or damage that may compromise their insulation properties, then are tested at high voltage to verify their dielectric strength and ensure compliance with safety standards. These annual inspections are vital to providing a secure working environment for electrical personnel.
V. Testing and Inspections of Hot Sticks, Hot Line Tools, Protective Grounds, and Mechanical Jumpers
ASTM requires the annual inspection and dielectric testing of all hot sticks, hot line tools, protective grounds, and mechanical jumpers. During testing, each item is inspected for wear, tear, or damage that may compromise their insulation properties or other safety features, then are tested at high voltage to verify their dielectric strength and ensure compliance with safety standards. These tests and inspections are vital in maintaining a secure work environment and preventing accidents and injuries caused by electrical mishaps.
