GL 310, GL 311 and GL 312
Live tank circuit breaker from 100 kV up to 170 kV
Reliable Performance in Low Temperatures
GE’s GL 310, GL 311 and GL 312 live tank circuit breakers for outdoor installation are designed for temperatures down to -55°C with gas mixture and -40°C with pure SF6, and feature the latest technologies in interrupter chambers and spring-operated mechanisms. Our latest double motion technology effectively reduces the opening energy by approximately 65%.
GE’s live tank circuit breakers provide a high level of reliability, even under extreme conditions and climates, or in highly active seismic areas. The circuit breakers are completely assembled before delivery, allowing for quick, easy installation and commissioning with long intervals between maintenance. The interrupter chamber can be independently disassembled without having to remove the entire pole column, and the pole units are pre-filled at the factory before shipping.
High Quality Components
The GL 310, GL 311 and GL 312 live tank circuit breakers provide high reliability based in part on high quality components, including:
Installation and Maintenance
Our live tank circuit breakers meet the requirements of national and international standards. This has been confirmed by comprehensive type tests according to the latest IEC and ANSI standards.
The entire development and production procedures for our live tank circuit breakers are fully compliant with the latest ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 quality standards. This ensures the high quality of our products and services, which is confirmed by regular audits.
