General Electric FKD Contact Set

This is one of the most common types of contacts we work on; the electrical contacts from a General Electric FKD oil circuit breaker. The set above is how they generally come in to our shop. Thirty-six stationary contacts and six small arcing contacts in their aluminum housings and six movable rods make up the set. We completely disassemble, repair the contacts with the proper silver tungsten, and reassemble so they're ready for instillation. Below are the same contacts after we repaired them...
