I mean AMPS......As of yesterday, nothing special at all. Its hard to give a specific number as its a load following air compressor, so the number always changes. 480v, 3 phase.



What are the odds that the wires are bad, and nothing else?....right.......No way, is there?

@rcannon409
I doubt this is your issue but just for thought. On the job in Midland recently as the last electricians on site we were tasked with helping plant [email protected] diagnose why new GE Spectra breakers started tripping after Our heat trace was energized but with no direct found issues with the HT itself.
Turned out to be the trip units that had been inserted into the main critical panel breakers right after the ATS were to small to begin with and then programmed with out consideration of our load going to be placed on the system. It was an easy fix though, only took GE flying a man out and he went breaker to breaker in all three MCCs and metered start up, full load run and with a lap top reprogrammed the trip points of the breakers one at a time. He did replace a half dozen trip models as apparently there were more than a few to small but not the breaker itself.
Anyway what I was getting at is he mentioned that these breakers were sensitive enough to need actual readings and then added additional over amps due to age of system to be considered. Also said that imbalance between phases was more important with them. Trying to get my company to send me to their tech class but doubt it will happen. Anyway good luck.

I agree you need to go to tech class so I don't have to!!! I like having you guys solve my technical issues because I think theres many of you with much more experience in the large , industrial stuff. You might be right, I'll know more tomorrow.


I know Im being way too simple in saying this, but two of us saw this "spark". It looked really simple as if the electricity had found an easier path to the compressor rather than go through the wires..This may, or may not be exactly what it looks like....

Another question.....


You can see where the electricity left those wires....the spark left that area and went @ 10 feet. It hit the compressor. If someone had been standing in the direct path, would that have done any damage to them? Im thinking no, but goddamn was it loud and scary. No one was in the path, but that was just because of luck. My guy was standing on the spark side, looking to see if a fan started to turn, or a motor started to turn. It missed him by at least 3 feet, but what if?

A person likely wouldn't have attracted it. Still, it would have been interesting to find out
I wonder what the charge of arc spark is relative to the current its coming off of.

Avintage, Im with you, but the electrician contacted me , today. He said the a wire was loose as it went into the breaker...swears the equipment is ok (???) My fear is I hit the on switch, and it happens again...Its 2 degrees there, right now, and supposed to drop to well below zero.



Its so damn cold here that all I do is use the snowblower. Blow snow on to the grass and the wind takes it right back to the driveway.
