Myth About sf6 gas Gas In Electrical Equipment

Where is gaz sf6 used? The following applications are known. For some of these most probably you haven’t heard of. For sound insulation in windows, In vehicle tyres, Is sf6 gas a health hazard? Pure insulating gas is physiologically completely harmless for humans and animals. It’s even used in medical diagnostic. Due to its weight it might displace the oxygen in the air, if large quantities are concentrating in deeper and non ventilated places. Is gaz sf6 harmful for the environment? It has no ecotoxic potential, it does not deplete ozone. Due to its high global warming potential of 22.200 (*) it may contribute to the man made greenhouse-effect, if it is released into the atmosphere. What is the overall contribution of Sulfr hexafluoride used in the electrical equipment to the greenhouse effect? Less than 0,1 % ( see CAPIEL) and CIGRE). In an Ecofys study the contribution to the greenhouse effect in Europe is estimated to 0.05 % (*).

gaz sf6: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

Sulfr hexafluoride is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, insulating gas is an industrial gas that doesn’t exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. insulating gas is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. gaz sf6 is certainly no secret in the Norwegian energy industry. Its use is highly regulated, and many of its users are working together to share experience and come up with viable alternatives sf6 gas is used in wind turbines: TRUE. Sulfr hexafluoride is used not in the turbine itself, but in the switchgear that controls the current generated by the turbine. But there is nothing unique about wind turbines. There are no viable alternatives to sf6 gas: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on Sulfr hexafluoride at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.
