gascircuit breakers leak testing for high voltages

Vacuum circuit breakers are more commonly used at system voltage levels up to 72 kV. Because there is no gas to ionize to form the arc, the insulating gap is smaller than in other circuit breakers. An arc does form from the vaporized contact material. The insulation distance in a vacuum circuit breaker is about 11 – 17 mm between

    SF6 circuit breakers suffer less wear on the main contacts than do air and oil circuit breakers. The breaking principle is to cool down the arc by blowing SF6 gas with high pressure towards the arcing contacts. An SF6 circuit breaker’s arc extinction method may be characterized as either puffer or self-blast.
