The Quad Plus Senior Technician has extensive experience rebuilding medium-voltage breakers. The refurbishment process, sometimes called major reconditioning, includes completely tearing down the breaker and rebuilding it and replacement of wear items such as springs and coils.
In response to the customer’s request, he developed a specialized procedure to refurbish Westinghouse DHP 5kV and 15kV breakers, a procedure that did not previously exist in this market. The Quad Plus crew was then able to pick up the breakers on our own trucks and transport them to our local Breaker Lab to complete the procedure, then transport the breakers back to the customer’s site.
Because our team was responsible for the entire process, we were able to save a substantial amount for the customer, especially on packing and transportation. It also allowed us to increase the volume of breakers refurbished compared to the traditional process to complete the job more quickly and at a lower cost to both us and the customer.
