Switching Device Remanufacturing

Switching Device Remanufacturing

Mitigate the Risk of Equipment Failure, Arc Flash and Obsolescence

Circuit breakers, disconnect switches and contactors that have been in operation for a long period of time are often not in ideal working condition. Especially after a fault incident, the integrity of the device may be compromised. Furthermore, as a switching device approaches end of life, it becomes difficult to predict how it may respond under fault conditions, thereby increasing risk to personnel and equipment.

Mitigate your risk through cost effective equipment reconditioning and/or remanufacturing.
