The Association of Electrical Equipment and Medical Imaging Manufacturers (NEMA) have recently posted a valuable new resource for the electrical industry on their website.  Evaluating Fire- and Heat-Damaged Electrical Equipment is available in a free, downloadable PDF format.  This new guide, published on August 26, 2013 provides guidelines for evaluating the condition of electrical equipment that has been exposed to fire, heat, and products of combustion.  Installers, inspectors, suppliers and others involved in assessing whether electrical equipment can be safely reenergized and reused following exposure to heat and fire will find this new document to be extremely useful.  This new document is a companion to another well known NEMA publication, Evaluating Water-Damaged Electrical Equipment.
