When Do You Need a Licensed Electrical Contractor?

Have you ever had a problem in your house or at the office where the electrical sockets didn’t work when you tried to charge your phone? Or when an appliance or equipment suddenly caused a power outage? That is the perfect time to contact people dedicated to this field: electrical contractors.

Licensed Electrical contractor are those that perform particular construction work related to the set-up, design, and upkeep of electrical systems. It can either be a person or a firm that performs such work. All kinds of work include certain risks involved. As for electrical systems, if the one working on it doesn’t possess the necessary knowledge, experience, and suitability, that’s going to give you one severe headache!

Licensed Electrical Contractors (LEC)

These are electrical contractors that have passed and are deemed eligible by a governing body. They should also accomplish specific certification programs. They must also meet other requirements related to conducting electrical work, including safety requirements, supervision, and administration.

Qualified Electricians vs. Licensed Electrical Contractors 

If your construction project is under a general contractor and they had the electrical system subcontracted, here’s what you should do.  Ask them for their electrical contractor’s license number from the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) or the Electrical Contractor Registration Agency (ECRA). Also, they should be able to issue certificates of inspection. In some countries, only licensed electrical contractors are authorized to work on such.

What are the advantages of hiring LECs?

Electrical work is dangerous and risky. You may know someone who can do the job (for a cheap fee), but never disregard the cost if something went wrong. It is best left to LECs with the proper skill, equipment, and training to do the job safely. What are the advantages? Here they are:

  • They are fully insured
  • They will take care of the permits
  • They can provide references
  • They are qualified to perform the type of electrical work you require
  • They can offer a Certificate of Inspection

Electrical mistakes can be quite costly and expensive, as well as fatal. It would be wise to be careful of the people you let in.  It can be tough choosing between LECs or qualified electricians. Both have experience working on electrical projects and look qualified for the job. But, if your general contractor recommends them, you can somehow be assured that you’ll be fine.

4 Types of Industrial Blender for Manufacturing

There are various types of processes and methods in the manufacturing industry which are specific to what the business is making. Regardless of the nature of the material, you must have the right industrial blenders for your company. Here are the types of mixers you can utilize.

Paddle Mixers

A type of agitator, a paddle mixer, is used when you are operating dry materials instead of the liquid kind. This machine is created with broad paddles attached around a rotating axis to mix correctly the materials used.Unlike the other machines, this industrial mixer’s motion is efficient, which helps create less resistance.

Agitators

Another type.of an industrial blender; agitators stays stationary when mixing without any specific movement. This mixer is utilized for low viscosity materials and can range from small laboratory to larger industrial mixers that can hold up to 10000 gallons of liquid.Agitators are ideal when it comes to mixing viscous and thick liquids but at a lower cost and more efficient in terms of energy.

Ribbon Mixers

When it comes to mixing free-flowing solids, ribbon blenders are the ideal type that you can use because of its blade’s sharpness compared to the other mixers. Ribbon blenders are pretty much the same as your home blender. You can blend both solid and liquid materials, and the ribbon blender will do the rest for you. 

Static Mixers

Static mixers do not have moving parts and are designed similarly to that of a ribbon mixer. The mixer works by getting the water flow through, and once it gets through the obstruction, the liquid will stop flowing and be forced to blend and mix.Because this machine is used in batch processing.that have a continuous flow of items, static mixers are more efficient than batch mixing. A device that uses a simple way of mixing that enhances uniformity without using any moving parts, servicing, or power.

Conclusion

Industrial blenders can make your business do more in terms of efficiency and productivity. Knowing which type you need can boost your company’s product manufacturing and may help you in expanding your business.
