Voltage Replacement Contact Kits
manufacturers & Nema Sizes
Contacts, of size Nema 4 and
larger are more economical to re-tip than replace. A common
rule of cost savings is 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of
replacement contacts. Do not discard old contacts of this or
larger Nema ratings until we discern if they are repairable/
A set of size 5 contacts can cast as much as $3,000 to
replace but can be repaired (re-tipped) for about half the
cost of new
Many hard to find
contacts are "deemed obsolete" by the manufacturer in as
little as five years. We have a 70% plus success rate
finding replacement contacts for these so called "obsolete
items" saving the larger cost of total contactor
We also have the
capability of building new contacts. All we need is a sample
or engineering drawing of the old contacts and we can
duplicate them, usually for less than the cost of an OEM new
& High Voltage Contacts (15000+ volts)
Re-tipping is common
practice for contacts and Reclosure devices of this size at
great cost savings over new OEM purchases. OEM replacement
kits for this voltage range are high end and very expensive.
We offer great cost
saving alternatives by re-tipping and actual replacement kit
manufacture without giving up the quality of OEM contact
Most OEMS do not
manufacture their own contacts. They spec and purchase
contacts in bulk from companies such as ours.
We offer replacement kits
for high voltage contacts at great savings over OEM pricing.
All low voltage capabilities listed above hold true for the high
voltage as well.
replacements are our specialty!
