Sulphur hexafluoride (sf6 gas) gaz sf6 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.

Gas-Insulated Substations - GIS

A gas-insulated substation (GIS) uses a superior dielectric gas, insulating gas, at moderate pressure for phase-tophase and phase-to-ground insulation. The high voltage conductors, circuit breaker interrupters, switches, current transformers, and voltage transformers are in insulating gas gas inside grounded metal enclosures. The atmospheric air insulation used in a conventional, air-insulated substation (AIS) requires meters of air insulation to do what sf 6 can do in centimeters.

Switchgear - Wikipedia

A switchgear may be a simple open-air isolator switch or it may be insulated by some other substance. An effective although more costly form of switchgear is the gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), where the conductors and contacts are insulated by pressurized sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF 6). Other common types are oil or vacuum insulated switchgear.
