A safety alert has been issued by the UK Health & Safety Executive titled ‘Use of ICAR Capacitors in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems’ http://www.hse.gov.uk/safetybulletins/icar-capacitors.htm
Dale Power Solutions do not utilise and have not utilised the capacitor part numbers detailed in the safety alert in Dale or Erskine branded products either manufactured or supplied to its client base.
We would recommend that clients with DC and AC UPS systems supplied by other manufacturers are checked and ICAR capacitors of the identified part numbers replaced with safe alternatives.
It is important that UPS systems are maintained on a regular basis and items with limited operating life i.e. DC capacitors, AC capacitors, fans, filters, batteries are replaced as recommended.
Dale Power Solutions support the full life cycle of client’s secure power systems both on and offshore, please contact us for further information or a free consultation to meet your critical power needs.
