FIELD BREAKER 2000 AMPS WHICH WAS TAKEN FOR AMC SERVICING
An emergency call was made to our team for servicing a field breaker at Vietnam. The generator had stopped working due to a Field Circuit Breaker (FCB) and the local team there could not rectify the problem. Power generation had stopped and the customer was losing revenues.After several discussions with the generator OEM and the FCB manufacturer, it was suggested by the FCB manufacturer that MIPL in India could solve the problem. MIPL deputed their well experienced technician for solving the issue and the problem was rectified within 24hrs of the person reaching site.
After repairing the FCB, the FCB was dismantled, serviced and the following checks were carried out:
- Easy movement of the shaft
- The left and right bushings were cleaned and correct tightness was ensured.
- Mechanical latching system checked for proper closing and holding
- Main contacts surface level checked for free pitting
