Find-A-Phase

Power outages can happen at the worst times. Full crew schedules and inclement weather can make it tough to quickly repair a residential lost phase or neutral. Our Find-A-Phase buys you the time you need and puts customers back on line fast.

 

Benefits

Allows one man loading, unloading and placing of converter unit

Eliminates unsightly and accident prone jumper cords

Tamper proof and unobstructive

Mounts securely to rear bumper

Reduces costs by separating the mobilization unit from the converter-one mobilization unit can place

several converters

Eliminates back injuries by providing a mechanized method of lifting and carrying the converter

Installation Procedure

1) Remove customer meter.

2) Disconnect faulted leg at pedestal or transformer and at meter device. Tape exposed ends

3) Place breaker switch on portable transformer in the open position.

4) Check that locking tabs on meter socket adapter are retracted. Screws should b turned full

counter-clockwise.

5) Connect neutral pigtail on meter socket adapter to neutral lug in customer’s meter socket.

6) Plug in adapter and tighten locking tab screws in a clockwise direction.

7) Place breaker switch on portable transformer in the closed position. Check for 220 volts across

top terminals of adapter.

8) Open breaker switch on portable transformer. Set meter in adapter and close breaker switch to

restore service to customer.

(Not for use with electric heat)

Bent-Tube Trailer Frames

Why are bent frame tubes so important?

Look at the frames on vehicle chassis.  You will find very little welding.  Even when structures like cross members need to be attached, it’s generally done with fasteners.  Providing good welds is a necessary part of trailer building.  Engineering out of welds where possible provides structural benefits and is an intelligent thing to do.

 A bent tube frame is superior because:
  • It provides uniform strength throughout the frame by eliminating the stress concentrations common in the heat affected zone caused by welding.
  • The welded area does not have the toughness that is inherent in a continuous bent tube frame.
  • The weld area is difficult to inspect because the joint is hidden after it is welded.  This is true for other welds as well but, in this critical area, there are unique challenges.  An angled cut is required and the accuracy of this cut and the resulting joint can not be verified after the tube is welded.  The tube walls should be beveled prior to the weld application and this cannot be determined after the fact without cutting the tube apart.  The V-groove weld that results is difficult to ensure full joint penetration on the hidden base of the joint.
  • Welding provides a discontinuous surface that is more susceptible to rust formation and this deterioration through time can affect the strength of the joint.
  • Just as a casting can provide uniformity of shape and character, a bent frame does not posses the variability introduced by cutting, beveling, bending and welding the joint.
