Sometimes two elements are better than one.
Dual element fuses are particularly beneficial for the protection of motor circuits. When a motor starts up, it may experience a temporary overload before it begins running at its normal speed. Dual element fuses are able to withstand these bursts without inflicting any damage to the motor, circuits, or the fuse itself. Because of this, dual element fuses can be sized significantly closer to the actual motor load. Whereas if a single element fuse was used, it would have to be rated up to 3 times the actual motor current in order to withstand these surges.
Dual element. Half the size.
Dual element fuses pack a pretty big punch for their size. These high performance fuses are both smaller in size and amp ratings. Since they can be sized closer to the motor load, the amp ratings are smaller which can not only help reduce the amount of needed panel space, but can also save you money and potentially reduce the risk of arc flashes and short circuits.
It is also important to note that while all dual element fuses are time delay fuses, not all time delay fuses are dual element fuses. Fast acting fuses are typically single element fuses.
