G&W Circular Tank Style BURD switches can be equipped with dry well fuse canisters that accept general purpose current limiting fuses to provide overcurrent and fault protection. The switches also feature load break switching capability in a totally sealed, submersible, dead front device. The switches are designed for use on 1, 2, or 3-phase systems with voltages up to 27kV, 160A load break and continuous current, and 20kA asymmetrical momentary and close into fault ratings. The switches are designed for installation in small circular vaults with switch operators and high voltage connections on top of the tank.
The switches are designed to IEEE C37.72 and C37.74 for load break capability.
