Live Tank Circuit Breaker - LTB AirPlus™

The eco-efficient Live Tank Breaker (LTB) AirPlus™ makes use of a CO2-based gas mixture as the insulating and arc extinguishing medium as an alternative to SF6.

The eco-efficient breaker platform enables a Global Warming Potential (GWP) reduction of almost 100%.

The LTB AirPlus uses the same technology of the well-proven Hitachi ABB Power Grids' SF6 LTB product range. This provides our customers with the highest reliability and the same product footprint while lowering the environmental impact.

The LTB AirPlus is also available as a Disconnecting Circuit Breaker, where the disconnecting function is integrated into the breaker.


  • Line, transformer, reactor and capacitor switching
  • Switching of harmonic filters

Why Hitachi ABB Power Grids?

  • AirPlus has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) < 1 vs 23,500 of SF6
  • Close to 100% GWP reduction compared to conventional breakers
  • Scalable from MV to HV in interruption and insulation technology
  • Future-proof solution to comply with environmental regulation changes
  • Based on well-proven high-voltage breakers technology of Hitachi ABB Power Grids
