Dispatched this month

Refurbished South Wales #Switchgear D4X 400A oil circuit breaker dispatched to a UK #DNO complete with 36 month comprehensive warranty.

The refurbished unit is shown alongside our client’s original breaker which was sent in for assessment by our engineers but found to have a mechanism damaged beyond economic repair.

With almost 100 years in business, our knowledge and experience of legacy UK origin #11kV switchgear is unmatched.

Two refurbished Schneider 1250kVA 11000/433V transformers each retrofitted with PRV, OTI and wired to marshalling boxes for connection to a SCADA transformer monitoring system per our client’s requirements.

When purchasing a quality refurbished #transformer from Slaters you aren’t limited to a basic model. We can modify and accessorise to meet your exact requirements, including protection & monitoring equipment, cable boxes, monoblocks, OLTC, metering & CT chambers etc and close couple to new or refurbished LV feeder, #HV circuit breaker/ring main unit etc.
