Dead Tank Circuit Breaker for 38 kV
GE's DT series of dead tank circuit breakers are known for their advanced self-blast interrupters, leak resistant cast aluminum enclosures and durable low energy spring operated mechanisms. More than 100,000 GE circuit breakers with self-blast interrupters and FK spring-operated mechanisms have been in service since 1989.
Flexibility for New and Retrofit Applications
The compact DT1-38 design can be used in new or retrofit applications. The 3-pole circuit breaker forms a complete, fully assembled, factory-tested, transportable unit. The on-site installation requires only a few simple steps. For installations where truck shipment is impossible, the DT1-38 can be readied for standard container shipment as a fully assembled unit.
Thanks to its robust design, the DT1-38 is a highly reliable circuit breaker even under the most severe operating conditions and is tested to meet or exceed IEEE/ANSI and IEC as C2 class for capacitance switching including back-to-back (low restrike probability) and reactor switching applications. Extensive mechanical operation design testing ensures trouble-free operation for the lifetime of the circuit breaker. Intensive production leak testing ensures superior in-service SF6 performance.
Quality components play a key role in the high performance of the unit. DT1-38 components include:
GE designs, manufactures, tests and delivers its circuit breakers in accordance with IEEE/ANSI and IEC standards, maintaining a quality assurance system according to ISO-9001 and ISO-14001. The competence center for dead tank circuit breakers is located in Charleroi, PA (USA).
