Forklift Fuse

Forklift Fuse - A fuse consists of either a wire fuse element or a metal strip within a small cross-section which are connected to circuit conductors. These units are usually mounted between a couple of electrical terminals and quite often the fuse is cased inside a non-conducting and non-combustible housing. The fuse is arranged in series capable of carrying all the current passing through the protected circuit. The resistance of the element generates heat due to the current flow. The construction and the size of the element is empirically determined to make sure that the heat generated for a normal current does not cause the element to reach a high temperature. In cases where too high of a current flows, the element either rises to a higher temperature and melts a soldered joint in the fuse that opens the circuit or it melts directly.

An electric arc forms between the un-melted ends of the element if the metal conductor parts. The arc grows in length until the voltage needed to sustain the arc becomes higher as opposed to the available voltage inside the circuit. This is what leads to the current flow to become terminated. Where alternating current circuits are concerned, the current naturally reverses direction on each and every cycle. This process significantly improves the fuse interruption speed. Where current-limiting fuses are concerned, the voltage required to sustain the arc builds up fast enough to basically stop the fault current prior to the first peak of the AC waveform. This effect greatly limits damage to downstream protected devices.

The fuse is often made from copper, alloys, silver, aluminum or zinc since these allow for predictable and stable characteristics. The fuse ideally, will carry its current for an undetermined period and melt fast on a small excess. It is important that the element must not become damaged by minor harmless surges of current, and must not change or oxidize its behavior after potentially years of service.

So as to increase heating effect, the fuse elements can be shaped. In large fuses, currents may be divided between multiple metal strips. A dual-element fuse can have a metal strip which melts at once on a short circuit. This particular kind of fuse could likewise have a low-melting solder joint that responds to long-term overload of low values compared to a short circuit. Fuse elements could be supported by nichrome or steel wires. This will make sure that no strain is placed on the element but a spring may be integrated to be able to increase the speed of parting the element fragments.

It is common for the fuse element to be surrounded by materials that are meant to speed the quenching of the arc. Silica sand, air and non-conducting liquids are a few examples.
