Electrical issues in the oil and gas industry can crop up in a variety of ways. One major concern for many companies is that old technology combined with inefficient motors that have no speed control often results in a lot of wasted energy leading to high energy costs. Since these operations are usually at the end of the electrical line, they commonly experience issues with “dirty power”: voltage variations, frequency variations, and insufficient voltage. These drops or surges in power can result in sine wave distortions or power disruptions that drive up costs and reduce system capacity.
We get it. Circuit breakers are expensive. But without them, you’re up a creek without a paddle. So what can a savvy electrician do to keep the power on without going broke?
Two words: reconditioned breakers.
Tripped breaker? It happens. The question is: what do you do now? If you can’t get it back online, you’ll be stuck waiting for a repair or replacement.

Do you have a strategy for dealing with electric motor failure? If not, you could be losing thousands of dollars in ineffective solutions, downtime, and employee hours. At some companies, the strategy is a simple breakpoint: anything below 50 or 75 HP gets replaced, and anything above that gets repaired. These smaller motors are often referred to as throwaway motors.
But is there really such a thing as a throwaway motor? Is it always more cost effective to replace a smaller motor rather than repairing it?
Obsolete breakers are still used in plenty of applications. But what happens when that breaker goes bad? Bay Power has you covered.
