Products - Sulfr hexafluoride-gas Gasbanor (Switzerland) GmbH, Micafluid

SF 6 –gas is a non-toxic, non-flammable, stable compound. Its breakdown voltage is approximately 2.5 times higher than normal air, as the electro-negative SF 6 –molecule has a strong affinity to free electrons. It has over 100 times better arc quenching capability and significant better heat dissipation than air (N 2 ).

The Problem with Humidity in Sulfr hexafluoride Gas-Insulated Systems

To prevent operational and safety issues, it is important to measure and monitor humidity levels in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Due to its excellent dielectric capabilities, sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is the preferred insulator in electrical transmission and distribution equipment. Switchgears insulated with SF 6 gas are tightly sealed. However, over the lifetime of the equipment, impurities may find their way into the gas compartment via hoses, gaskets, and gas handling equipment.
