Renewable Fuses: Protection or Self-Deception?

Brian Yarbrough and Jim Nelson, Hartford Steam Boiler

Unlike most fuses, renewable fuses do require some maintenance. Due to the design factors discussed in the full-text article that follows, and a corresponding lack of maintenance, renewable fuses present a higher than normal risk for equipment damage and fires. By routinely completing the maintenance items listed below, many of the failures due to renewable fuses are less likely to occur. However, as replacement becomes necessary, it is recommended that renewable fuses be replaced with non-renewable, current-limiting type fuses. Refer to the full article for more detailed information about fuse construction, causes of failure, low-temperature ignition and fuse maintenance. »more
