Fulmer Company of Export, Pa., improved the design of its single pocket, cartridge style, plug-in holder, a product that offers a revolution in brush changing for turbine-generator reliability.
OEM approved, Fulmer’s product is a direct replacement for the original brush holders used on GE, Westinghouse and other manufacturers’ generators. And no expensive, time-consuming rigging modification is required to install the holder, just remove the old holder, clean the rigging and install the Fulmer FC101 style holder. In fact, brushes can be removed on-line, without any service interruption.
The longer brush box creates better brush support and can accommodate a 4″ brush, greatly lengthening brush life and reducing the frequency of brush changes.
Lightweight and ergonomically built, the holder also offers two styles of removable insulated handles. The “shorter” handle with flash guard protects fingers from brush shunts, while the optional, extended handle can be used for holders that are difficult
Economically priced, the holder utilizes standard brushes and terminals and improves machine performance by reducing brush selectivity and improving air flow and cooling.
Fulmer Company is the largest North American manufacturer of brush holders for DC machines, and a supplier to major global OEMs and aftermarket customers. OEMs include GE, Siemens, Toshiba and others. Major aftermarkets include power generation, railroad, transit, mining, steel and motor repair shops. Fulmer Company is certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard by Det Norske Veritas.
