"Fusing" of Electrical Wires. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 21 May 1914

" Fusing " of Electrical Wires. The ironmonger ntul electrical trader can do a great deal towards removing an impression from the public mind which lias been fostered of recent years by newspapers. Pro bably for want' of a better term, tin* expression "the fusing of elec tric wires" came into who to de scribe lires which had an admitted ly electrical origin. Tt is. however, a wretched misnomer, and should be discountenanced whenever possi ble. To fuse the average house cir cuit wire, in fact, would refpiire nn amount of energy which tin* ordi nary circuit or even main fuse would not allow to pass into the wiring. l*y fusing is meant the melting of the conductor into nn un recognisable muss of metal. What actually happens is not fusing at all, but "arcing" either between the conductors or between any one of them and earth. This condition arises from weak or damaged insu lation, ami generally takes years to develop ; at the moment at which it occurs an arc will fornv between one condu...
