SF6 End-of-life re-use cost

Dec 07, 2020Our design was developed with the aim of keeping the switchgear's dimensions and operability as similar as possible to SF6-using GIS while, of course, removing the GHG. Traditional GIS' main problems nowadays revolve around the regulatory threat to SF6 and the cost and complexity of the end of life management due to SF6.

  • SF6 Handling: Why the Full Lifecycle of Product Matters

    Oct 27, 2016The dielectric and heat transfer characteristics of sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) has made it the insulator of choice for circuit breakers, disconnectors, and switchgear in the power transmission and distribution industry.. For decades, the TD sector has relied on SF 6 to effectively quench arcs and to cool and protect its equipment. However, SF 6 is a very powerful greenhouse gas, 23,900 times

  • SF6 Worries – The Most Potent and Persistent Greenhouse

    Sep 20, 2019Why worry, leaks!. The discovery of SF 6 can be traced to the work of Henri Moissan and Paul Lebeau in 1901, who found that sulfur reacted with fluorine according to the reaction equation: . S 8(s) + 24 F 2(g) → 8 SF 6(g). Under ambient conditions of temperature and pressure, SF 6 exists as a gas; this property is traceable to the small size and low polarizability of the fluorine atoms
