Integrated Solutions

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply
    • An industrial UPS, or Uninterruptible Power Supply, is the best way to maintain power to your critical loads in the event of a power sag, spike or even a complete power loss. When the need for generator power arises, it may take up to 15 seconds for a standby generator to power up and reach full load. Those 15 seconds may cost you valuable data, time, materials, and profits. The CAT industrial UPS can bridge that gap in power and complete a totally integrated backup system.
    • Why Choose a CAT UPS?
      • Seamless Transition Between Utility and Standby Power
      • Battery-Free
      • Up to 97% Efficiency
      • Flywheel – 75% Smaller Footprint than Battery Option
      • Environmentally Safe “Green Energy”
      • Conditions Power & Regulates Voltage
  • Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS)
  • Switchgear

Electric Power Services

    • Preventative Maintenance
      • At the core of our Preventive Maintenance (PM) programs is our complete 90-point service which provides a valuable maintenance record of your generating system. We follow the highest standards, including those from Caterpillar as well as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 110 standards to ensure your safety and satisfaction. We are familiar with all aspects of your generator, not just the engine. In fact, we offer PM services no matter the make or model of engine. We also offer monthly and quarterly services as well as customized services to meet your needs. Let us be your Emergency Power Systems experts.
        • Routine preventive maintenance inspections available for all makes and models.
        • Oil and filter changes performed with genuine Cat parts.
        • Automatic Transfer Switch inspection and cleaning.
        • Load bank testing.
        • Cat UPS inspections and routine maintenance.
        • UPS battery inspections and testing.
        • NFPA 110 compliance testing.
        • Customized maintenance plans to meet your unique requirements.
    • SOS (Scheduled Oil Sampling)
      • As part of our comprehensive 90-point PM service, we will perform Scheduled Oil Sampling (or S.O.S) in our own dedicated lab. Our S.O.S program is the best way to monitor your engine and forecast wear-related problems. Caterpillar S.O.S analysis:
        • Measures Wear Metals and Dirt
        • Detects Water, Fuel and Antifreeze in Oil
        • Measures Soot, Oxidation and Sulfur Contaminants
      • Many companies evaluate oil composition, but interpreting the results is the key to effective engine management. We understand your engine, so we can interpret findings and diagnose problems quickly and accurately. When you receive your S.O.S test results, the information is clear, concise and easy to understand. It calls for specific, immediate action and/or makes carefully outlined recommendations that reduce downtime, increase efficiency and productivity.
    • Loadbank Testing
      • Load bank testing, based on your operation and its requirements, may be critical to assure your system is prepared to operate as specified and when called upon. Monthly transfer tests and outages may not meet the minimum required load your generator set needs to help prevent engine slobbering and wet stacking. Cleveland Brothers owns and operates over five megawatts of mobile load bank testing equipment. Our four hour test determines the power capability and condition of your emergency generator along with removing carbon, seating piston rings and removing unburned fuel and oil in the exhaust system. The test is documented. We can provide a load test to help you meet NFPA 110 standards.
        • Provide compliance with NFPA 110 regulations and JCAHO standards.
        • Keep your unit operating efficiently and reduce engine wet stacking.
        • Ensure circuit breaker performance.
        • Resistive and Reactive diagnostic testing.
    • Megohm Testing
      • Megohm testing or “megger” testing involves the use of a specialized service tool that produces a high voltage (500–1000 volts) in the windings of a generator stator or rotor. The megohmeter then measures how much of this voltage is lost to ground, and using this information calculates the resistance of the insulation.This value is then displayed as the insulation resistance in megohms.
      • What are the Benefits of Megohm Testing?
        • Can determine the presence of moisture in generator windings.This is especially critical for generators that are installed outdoors in an unheated enclosure, or are installed in damp or humid environments (boiler rooms).
        • Can detect deterioration of insulation from age, dirt or dust accumulation, chemical reaction, and moisture.
        • If done on a regular basis, can establish a trend of deterioration.
        • Can be used to troubleshoot certain problems.
        • Early detection of problems can help prevent catastrophic failure in the event of a problem developing into a dead short to ground.
        • Problems found can be addressed and corrected before failure, resulting in reduction of repair cost and downtime.
        • Relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of catastrophic failure.
    • On-Site Power Quality Analysis – Identify harmonics and unbalanced power output.
      • Cleveland Brothers can troubleshoot problems related to intermittent surges, sags, spikes, harmonics, etc. We can help determine if particular problems that are being experienced are the result of poor quality of your power source—whether utility or your standby generator—or as a result of load-related issues. Power Quality Analysis added to your existing Load Bank Testing can help verify the electrical performance of your stand-by emergency power equipment. This powerful and versatile tool samples 256 times per cycle providing extremely accurate measurements of parameters such as Volts, Amps, Frequency, kW, KVAR, Power Factor, Voltage and Current Harmonics,Total Harmonic Distortion, and much more.
      • Our portable analyzer can be quickly connected to systems up to 600 VAC and 3000 Amps. Real-time data can be viewed on the analyzer or PC during testing, while reports featuring both numerical data and color graphic representations of measured values are provided upon completion of the analysis.
    • Vibration Analysis
      • Vibration is a reality of any power-driven system. Fast moving, reciprocating parts can slowly wear through even the smallest misalignment, unbalance, stiffness or other forces. Vibration can cause damage over time, but seldom is identified as the problem because its effects are slow to develop. Accurate measurement of vibration is the only means of solving a potential problem, but often is difficult to accomplish. Rely on Cleveland Brothers to accurately measure vibration in your system and give you the information you need to avoid potential problems
    • Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) and Switchgear Service
      • Whether your system features an ATS from Caterpillar, Russelectric, ASCO or elsewhere, Cleveland Brothers offers complete ATS Preventive Maintenance services for all automatic transfer switches from factory-trained technicians. We have documented, established procedures that allow us to offer complete system maintenance from the generator back. Rely on us to be your one-stop service provider. In addition to transfer switches, we also maintain all other types of switchgear, including paralleling gear (multiple generators working together), monitoring gear, set-point peak shaving gear, generator control centers and more. Let us help you realize the time and cost savings of contracting all services to one dependable source.
