yes or no ?
Something like this?Many years ago we ran out of indicator fuses in an Air Force Air Traffic Control facility and I took apart good conventional fuses and soldered in the "recycled" fuse wire into the blown indicator fuse bodies. The indicator fuses had a spring and when the fuse blew it would pop out a plunger that would close a contact to light a lamp.
Are we recycling or reusing there's a difference
Um... not sure we're all on the same page; the original question was about recycling fuses. Apparently Cooper Bussmann does have a recycling program; now I'm curious about our usage and might mention it to our environmental/safety guy.Why not fuses? Has the tech changed in 40 years? Does it wear out after 40 years? Breakers I am inclined to say "replace at 40", but not fuses.
