7.2KV Vacuum Breaker Replacement for Magne-Blast

This electrically operated vacuum breaker was designed and built by Power Precision to install in existing 7.2KV Magne-Blast switchgear.

Advantages of this new 7.2 Vacuum Breaker Include

  • Electrically operated mechanism
    • eliminates high force impacts of the mechanical opening and closing mechanisms
    • eliminates wear and failures related to mechanical spring energy storage mechanisms
    • less maintenance
    • ideal for frequently operated circuits such as motor feeders
    • lighter weight reducing wear on breaker lifting mechanisms
    • faster operating time reducing arc flash reliability
  • Vacuum enclosed contacts for improved safety and reliability.
  • No asbestos arc chutes.
  • Mechanical and electrical interlocks to mate with existing switchgear.
  • Upgrade one breaker at a time on scheduled outages with no additional downtime.
