  • Switchgear SF orvacuum?

    Sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is an artificial inert gas with excellent insulating properties and exceptional thermal and chemical stability. These characteristics of the gas have led to its widespread use in both HV and MV switchgear, both of which exhibit very high performance and reliability as a result. The specific advantages of SF 6 gas in
