Just one of our electrical expertise skill sets is the ability to deliver dielectric testing services for hotline tools. We offer in-service inspection, testing, and maintenance of hand-held live-line insulating tools. We perform tests for measuring sticks, telescoping sticks, clamp sticks, tree trimmers, insulated cutters to name a few.
In the United States, American Society for Testing Materials Standard F 711 specifies the stringent requirements for hot sticks and US OSHA standards require that they be inspected and electrically tested every two years. ETS Inc. can test your hot sticks. Cleaning and Waxing. Minor repairs, dielectric testing, certification label, and a certified test report.
With regards to the hot stick repair process, we first thoroughly inspect it for any defects, cleaned and cleared of any loose material, and test its performance. In case the tool fails to meet OSHA requirements during the pre-test, we send a repair quote to the client. The repair involves sanding of the parts, re-painting, and clear coating. Once the refurbishing is complete, it will undergo another dielectric test again for recertification.
