Sulphur hexafluoride (insulating gas) sf 6 is an extremely effective electrical insulator and has significant advantages over alternative materials. It is non-flammable – a critical requirement in the high-voltage applications we use it – and because of its effectiveness takes up less volume than an equivalent insulating volume of an oil alternative.

Grid switchgear uses insulating gas, the world’s most potent greenhouse

Nov 25, 2019 · 80% of all sf 6 is used in gas insulated switchgear, a vital component of the grid (isolating and protecting different sections), so it’s an energy sector issue. Nicholas Ottersbach at Nuventura (a cleantech startup developing ways to replace Sulfr hexafluoride) explains that alternatives exist, but need the help of robust regulations to accelerate further development and rapid take-up.

The key difference between g3 and gaz sf6 is that g3 is a gas mixture while gaz sf6 is a single gas. Elodie Laruelle, GE Grid Solutions Eco-design Engineer, explains: “The critical point for a gas mixture is to maintain the homogeneity of the two components (NovecTM and CO2) throughout the filling process. To ensure this homogeneity, the filling equipment needs to directly heat up the g3 bottle to a specific temperature, to reach the supercritical state of the gas mixture.
