We’re Your Go-To Source for Used Circuit Breakers
Widely recognized in the industry as one of the leading suppliers of Used Circuit Breakers and other circuit control devices, Bruce Electric has a great variety of sizes and types available to suit our customer’s needs. Used Circuit Breakers are able to stop current in the event of a direct short, an excess of current, or an excess of heat. Rather than replacing these units once the circuit has been opened or broken as is done with fuses, they can simply be reset. They possess five main components consisting of the frame, the operating mechanism, the terminal connectors, the trip elements, and the arc extinguishers and contacts. These units are an electrical necessity available in countless types. To learn more, view our catalog or contact us. We consider ourselves to be competent and professional electric equipment dealers and are happy to answer questions about all of our products from used and obsolete circuit breakers to single-phase three-phase converters. We sell used circuit breakers to the industrial and commercial markets.
These can be used to control and protect electrical circuits within buildings, plants, or entire industrial complexes. They are also often used in applications that require higher than normal voltages, such as those required for the operation of electric vehicles or electric train systems. Our Used Circuit Breakers have a wide variety of options including circuit protection and utilization. These components make sure that the maximum amount of work is done while using just the right amount of energy needed to conduct it. Our inventory is varied and diverse, guaranteed to meet our customer’s needs.

Different Types of Used Circuit Breakers
- Air Circuit Breakers
- Case Circuit Breakers
- Vacuum Circuit Breakers
Air Circuit Breakers
Air circuit breakers are used to interrupt current as a result of excessive levels of current. One feature that is common with air circuit breakers is the lack of an external source, rather they are created through the mechanical movement of internal parts. They’re most commonly used in residential and small commercial applications, but can also be found in industrial settings when overload protection is needed.
Case Circuit Breakers
Case circuit breakers are the most common type of circuit breaker used in residential and commercial settings. These breakers come with a removable, often adjustable case that contains protective mechanisms as well as operating mechanisms. The case is typically held closed by springs or other means.
Vacuum Circuit Breakers
Vacuum circuit breakers are used to reduce the risk of electrical explosions in residential and commercial applications. These types of circuit breakers (also known as Vacuum Interrupters) work to interrupt current when too much current flows through a wire so that an electrical arc does not occur which could result in an explosion.
These types of circuit breakers can also be used for motor controls; because they reduce the risk of an electrical explosion by interrupting current when too much current flows.
