sf6 gas switchgear Disposal Safe and efficient

SF6 is a greenhouse gas 23,500 times stronger than CO2. SF6 acts as a powerful electrical insulator and is found within most of the existing medium voltage switchgear installed base. When switchgear approaches end-of-life, great care in the disposal of the switchgear must be taken so that none of the SF6 is released into the atmosphere.
