Arc Chutes

OIP Arc Chutes

Arc Chutes are used to control and break down the arc within large switches and are found in all shapes and sizes. Most are manufactured from asbestos bonded cement boards.

Samples or drawings are required when enquiring, OIP have overhauled (utilising metal parts/blow out coils and contacts) all shapes and sizes up to 33KV for industries such as Power, Mining, Quarrying and Railway.
