Structured Cabling

What is structured cabling? Structured cabling is defined as a complete system of cabling and associated hardware that provides a complete and comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure. This includes complete copper and fiber solutions and encompasses a lot of different applications. But structured cabling is more than just a what, it’s also a how and a why. The how means adhering to accepted standards and codes. And the why is to ensure predictable and reliable performance, produce time savings, reduce downtime, provide redundancies and enhance aesthetics.

Our design-build structured cabling services include:

  • Fiber & copper data & voice cabling
  • Single/multi-floor cabling
  • Data center cabling
  • Outside plant & campus cabling
  • New structure buildouts
  • Audio/video cabling

High-voltage cleaning

Cleaning high-voltage electrical equipment usually means shutting down power, and even your entire operation. Kilgore’s innovative no-downtime method is based on the traditional procedure of corn blasting, and can be adapted to a wide range of electrical contamination problems. We will remove the thick layers of dust and grime from your underground substations, and help you prevent dangerous flashovers and fires.

We have adapted our unique cleaning process to a wide range of electrical contamination problems in such industries as mining, smelting, refineries, steel plants, pulp and paper plants, OSB plants, and other manufacturing facilities. Our high-voltage cleaning services save you time and money, and help you retain your competitive advantage.

Environmentally friendly electrical cleaning services

Kilgore has perfected an environmentally friendly cleaning process that uses ground-up corncobs, walnut shells and limestone to blast away grime and dirt from electrical components. The mixture is just abrasive enough to dislodge the dirt and grime without causing damage to wiring and other components.

First, Kilgore inspects your switchgear and electrical equipment with infrared and ultraviolet cameras, looking for any hot spots, bad connections or thermal anomalies. Following this non-invasive inspection, we perform our environmentally cleaning process. Most of our work is done under live conditions, meaning you won’t need to power-down your processes.

IR and UV inspection services

Kilgore provides non-invasive infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) inspection services. Inspections are available as a standalone service and are also a standard part of our cleaning process.

Failure of an electrical apparatus – such as switchgear, transformers or insulators – can produce catastrophic results, resulting in severe injury or even death. Electrical failures can be seen as hotspots by IR cameras or they may emit ultraviolet light. We use our IR and UV cameras to inspect your switchgear and electrical equipment for hot spots, bad connections or thermal anomalies. Each inspection includes a detailed report outlining any problem areas.

Advantages of Kilgore specialized electrical cleaning

We offer specialized electrical cleaning services in almost any environment – indoor, outdoor and underground mining. We have completed a wide range of projects, including underground mine substations, all types of metal clad switchgear, and live line outdoor insulators (to 230kV), to name a few. Advantages of the Kilgore cleaning method include:

  • Stops corona
  • Stops tracking
  • Prevents flashovers
  • Removes corrosion
  • Removes moisture
  • Eliminates downtime
  • Lowers operating temperature

Kilgore provides a unique cleaning system for power distribution components. Our cleaning process cuts costs by eliminating expensive repairs, minimizing downtime and reducing the possibility of injury. Kilgore can clean all types of high-voltage equipment, including:

  • Outdoor insulators (up to 230kV)
  • Switch rooms in plants and mills
  • Electric motors

We also provide infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) inspection services to spot potential problem areas and save you the expense of major repairs.

Contaminates on the insulators of an electrical power line can cause an electrical fault and must be periodically cleaned and maintained. An Air2 helicopter is used to haul 300 liters of purified water to the high voltage transmission line, then uses a custom built 18 foot insulated washing boom to clean the insulators.
