The Quad Plus team was called out to this customer in the food and beverage industry to get to the bottom of their continual faults and outages. Because the customer runs a continuous process, if one part of the process goes down, it results in exponential losses. The outages impacted their production schedule and cost tens of thousands of dollars in gear replacement and overtime labor for maintenance personnel and contractors.
The main problems for the industrial circuit breaker repair team included:
Insulated case circuit breakers with faulty trip units that would not open during an actual fault.
Breakers with mechanical damage from rough handling or age
Breakers in need of lubrication that were no longer operating as expected.
The low-voltage distribution breakers spanned a number of makes and models such as Siemens WL, GE AKRU, ABB SACE, and ITE K-Line.
