INTRODUCTION
More than 9000 Crompton Greaves SF6 Gas Circuit Breakers with puffer type interruptors upto 420 kV have been put into service in various environments in many countries since 1983 where they are operating satisfactorily. Type SFGP SF6 Circuit Breakers are of live tank type with rated voltage of 24 & 36 kV. Each breaker consists of three puffer type interruptors, providing a high insulation as well as an excellent breaking capability, a spring operating mechanism ensuring high operational reliability. All our SF6 Gas Breakers (24 to 420 kV) adhere to the requirements of the quality standards and scope of supply of ISO 9001, 1994.

FEATURES

These SF6 Gas Circuit Breakers are extremely simple Piston Puffer cylinder and compact in their design owing to the fact that Main contact no gas blast valves or exhaust valves are required and the force of contact separation simultaneously Contact spring drives the puffer piston, which builds up the gas pressure according to the contact stroke. The structural simplicity results in high performance reliability and, therefore, minimal inspection and re-assembly. Also this ensures that the OPERATING MECHANISM - FIG2 maintenance time is low. Inspection is simple and Closing trigger Plunger core (closing coil) easy since the interrupting medium, which is also Roller Hook the insulating medium, is monitored with ease Interlock spring Closing latch through clearly readable pressure gauges and Link Cam roller mechanical as well as electrical interlocks. Motor The breaker opens from front as well as back panels to provide easy access to all parts of the Closing cam mechanism. The checking or replacing of fixed, Spur gear moving or arc contacts and nozzle can be done by removing only the upper terminal of the interruptor unit as and when required. This operation does not Eccentric crankshaft Ratchet wheel require the breaker to be dismantled and it takes Pawls Main shaft only a few hours to put the breaker back into Main-shaft lever service. Roller The low operating noise level of the spring charged operating mechanism used in this breaker enables Tripping spring its use in residential areas. All exposed ferrous parts are treated to give high corrosion resistance and are finally painted with polyurethane based paint Exploded schematic view of ensuring excellent finish and protection. The breaker the operating mechanism has been made extraordinarily simple and light to increase safety in the event of earthquakes.

TESTS AND PERFORMANCE


The performance and reliability of these breakers and their excellent interrupting capability has been verified at renowned international testing laboratories like CESI, Italy and CPRI, India. The breakers are type tested for short circuit duties and capacitive current switching test as per IEC 56-1987

EASE OF INSTALLATION
Since these units are shipped in two parts - namely the pole unit and the mechanism - minimal site preparation is required and setup time is very low.

DESIGN
The interrupting unit (FIG.1) is puffer type and is contained in a porcelain insulator and the terminals. During interruption the puffer cylinder is quickly driven downwards with its attached parts by the operating mechanism (from the breaker "closed" position to the breaker "open" position). The gas within the puffer cylinder is compressed by the piston and blown to the arc through the nozzle achieving arc extinction. The operating mechanism (FIG.2) is an easy to handle motor charged spring type. It also permits manual operation of the breaker. High reliability has been ensured by keeping the number of components to a minimum and, therefore, maintenance required is easy and minimal.
