Forklift Fuses

Forklift Fuse - A fuse is made up of a wire fuse element or a metal strip of small cross-section compared to the circuit conductors, and is commonly mounted between a pair of electrical terminals. Usually, the fuse is enclosed by 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 produces heat due to the current flow. The construction and the size of the element is empirically determined to be sure that the heat produced for a standard current does not cause the element to reach a high temperature. In instances where too high of a current flows, the element either rises to a higher temperature and melts a soldered joint within the fuse that opens the circuit or it melts directly.

An electric arc forms between the un-melted ends of the element whenever the metal conductor components. The arc grows in length until the voltage needed to be able 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 particular process greatly improves the fuse interruption speed. Where current-limiting fuses are concerned, the voltage needed to sustain the arc builds up fast enough to essentially stop the fault current previous to the first peak of the AC waveform. This effect tremendously limits damage to downstream protected devices.

Generally, the fuse element is made up of copper, alloys, silver, aluminum or zinc that will provide stable and predictable characteristics. Ideally, the fuse will carry its rated current indefinitely and melt quickly on a small excess. It is important that the element must not become damaged by minor harmless surges of current, and should not change or oxidize its behavior subsequent to possible years of service.

The fuse elements may be shaped to be able to increase the heating effect. In larger fuses, the current can be separated among numerous metal strips, while a dual-element fuse may have metal strips that melt right away upon a short-circuit. This type of fuse could also contain a low-melting solder joint that responds to long-term overload of low values than a short circuit. Fuse elements can be supported by nichrome or steel wires. This ensures that no strain is placed on the element but a spring may be included so as to increase the speed of parting the element fragments.

It is normal for the fuse element to be surrounded by materials which are meant to speed the quenching of the arc. Non-conducting liquids, silica sand and air are some examples.
