The Impact of Corrosion Damage on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Calculating Total Cost of Ownership of electrical systems means evaluating costs over the life of a system. It starts with design, spec sheets, product choice and proper installation. Then, there are ongoing maintenance, repair and replacement costs to be taken into account.
Potential risks to electrical raceway systems from corrosion damage should also be considered. This is especially true when dealing with harsh environments and hazardous locations. Plus, not all corrosion protection products are the same. Early product failure can mean costly liabilities or the replacement of entire electrical systems.
Total Cost of Ownership – Electrical Systems
- Review submitted specs and product costs listed
- Analyze environment and product’s ability to perform without failure
- Calculate system’s extended operating costs – maintenance, repair and replacement costs
Your time and assets are valuable. So, it is important as an owner or end-user to invest in a cost-effective solution that provides proven longevity and corrosion protection for its environment.
To assist, Plasti-Bond offers Accredited, Regulated and Certified (ARC) courses. These convenient, online ARC courses can help reduce concerns over corrosion damage and its long-term impact on your electrical systems and your TCO.
These 60-minute training sessions are available for other key members of your team, such as designers and engineers. The sessions are free of charge and can be customized to your educational needs upon request.
Based on course content and completion, participants can earn 1 PDH of continuing education credit for each class.
