When industrial or power plant circuit breakers fail, the replacement cost can be astronomical. All too often, businesses and commercial industries believe their old circuit breaker is out of stock or cannot be refurbished. As a result, they might install a completely new breaker — and purchasing a new circuit breaker of 15 kV and up can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

This doesn’t have to be the case. CBS Northeast has supplied remanufactured industrial circuit breakers and custom electric switchgear — dating back to 1945 and for a wide range of electric loads — to industrial and commercial end users, utilities, and municipalities.

Our switchgear and circuit breaker experts have decades of knowledge and experience. They understand functions, types, components, voltage ratings, ampere ratings, ampere interrupting capacity, testing, electrical arcs, effects of current flow, thermal energy, and magnetic trip elements. CBS Northeast is familiar with all switchgear manufacturers, among them Westinghouse, Allis Chalmers, Siemens Allis, Federal Pacific, General Electric, ITE/ABB, Square D, and Cutler Hammer.

We work with all types of circuit breakers, including molded case, insulated case, and metal clad, as well as the five basic components of a breaker: frame or case, electrical contacts, arc extinguishing assembly, operating mechanism, and trip unit.
