Reconditioning Standards for Electrical Equipment, Components and Apparatus for Reuse in Commercial and Industrial Applications
PEARL Reconditioning Standards, Revision 6 was ratified by the PEARL Board of Directors on February 24, 2016. This revision is focused on the most common types of industrial and
commercial electrical equipment, including circuit breakers, transformers, motor controls, and switchgear, among other equipment categories.
Highlighted changes from Revision 6 of PEARL's Reconditioning Standards include additional detail regarding suggested technician qualifications and the importance of manufacturer
specifications for equipment performance, as well as expanded use of electrical industry terminology used by other electrical industry organizations, including IEEE and NETA.
PEARL Reconditioning Standards provide inspection, cleaning, reconditioning, testing, and documentation instructions that, when followed by trained technicians, will return electrical devices
to "as good as new" condition without compromise.
Electrical devices that meet PEARL Reconditioning Standards are then ready for installation and service, and will benefit from extended service life and reliability. The standards are
organized by type of equipment or apparatus.
PEARL member companies affix the blue PEARL Reconditioned Seal to electrical equipment that has passed the PEARL Reconditioning Standards.
PEARL's Reconditioning Standards are available to non-members at a minimal cost of $150 for electronic documents. Volume pricing is also available. PEARL members are able to purchase the
