What is a vacuum breaker?
A vacuum breaker is a mechnical device used to avoid backflow or a negative pressure in a plumbing system.
It typically consists of an air valve with a spring holding it closed. When the pressure within the system is positive, the valve remains closed. When the pressure is negative (less than atmospheric), the negative pressure overcomes the force of the spring holding the valve closed and the it opens, typically allowing normal atmospheric air to enter the system, thereby eliminating the negative pressure. Otherwise, the negative pressure might cause backflow of the plumbing system.

Thanks for the feedback!
That would depend on the application as there are many uses and shapes and specifications for a vacuum breaker
A vacuum breaker does not allow back flow into the potable water system A syphon breaker is normallly installed on a tank that there is a possibility of the tank im…ploding
In VCB, The two contacts are present in a vaccum, When there is a fault these contacts are forced to open resulting arch ,as all we know arch does not flow through Vaccum so i…t extinguishes thus vcb seperates two circuits.
Is a breaker whose contacts are in vacum cylinder. this done so the contacts will not be burnt and destroyed by the electrical arc draw while opening under load.Used in …high voltage and high amp conditions.
By the electromagnetic field differential between a conductor and the grounded conductor through a vacuum.
By turning off the water to the hot water heater. Opening the hot tap to drain the little bit of water left in the pipes. Then you need to replace like for like wi…th the vacuum breaker brand so that the threads match. Then untighten the broken vacuum breaker (its best to replace both at the same time). Refit the new vacuum breakers and tighten. Turn the water back on and leave the tap on the get rid of the air. Once all air has been expelled. You can close the tap and pat yourself on the back cause you just changed a vacuum breaker.
first of all what kinda person asks thiz stup. question??? -cyco.
By means of Megger Vidar or Vanguad VBT Series
we can use air at wide range owing it is so economic,,,,,no polution leave after operation,.
This depends on the design of the tank for under pressure. The vaccum breaker is then sized to slightly under the design under pressure. So in this case, the vaccum breaker wi…ll open before the design under pressure is reached to protect the tank.
To protect the potable water supply from back syphonage
A vacuum circuit breaker is a high-voltage circuit breaker whose contacts separate within a vacuum dielectric. The vacuum contributes to extinguishing the resulting arc becaus…e ionisation cannot take place while the arc is stretched between the separating contacts.
In Industries or any electrical commercial place can be use VCB for protection before the installation of equipment because or system of operation should be safe. Connection …Firs Three phase wire will connect in VCB outdoor chamber R,Y,B then outgoing terminal will used in system supply
A contactor is typically smaller, cheaper, and made to close more often. Breakers are made to interrupt faults, so they are heavier duty, but may wear faster when many operati…ons are needed (starting and stopping of a motor, for instance).
Air-blast circuit breakers are used to disconnect high-voltage transmission or distribution circuits in the event of a fault. One circuit breaker is required for each of the… three line conductors; there is not normally a neutral conductor in high-voltage three-phase transmission/distribution lines.
