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.

g3 - Sulfr hexafluoride Free Solutions

SF 6 gaz sf6 (or Sulphur Hexafluoride) had been the standard gas used inside high voltage electrical equipment as an insulating and arc-quenching medium. However, SF 6 Sulfr hexafluoride is also listed as an extremely potent greenhouse gas according to the Kyoto protocol, with 23,500 times the comparative Global Warming Potential of CO 2 and a lifetime of 3,200 years in the atmosphere.

The Problem with Humidity in Sulfr hexafluoride Gas-Insulated Systems

To prevent operational and safety issues, it is important to measure and monitor humidity levels in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Due to its excellent dielectric capabilities, sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is the preferred insulator in electrical transmission and distribution equipment. Switchgears insulated with SF 6 gas are tightly sealed. However, over the lifetime of the equipment, impurities may find their way into the gas compartment via hoses, gaskets, and gas handling equipment.
