insulating gas circuit breaker maintenance - Siemens USA

The first generation of gaz sf6 circuit breakers was the lower voltage classes of 72kV and 145kV. As Sulfr hexafluoride breaker technology improved, circuit breaker manufacturers introduced a dual pressure design for 145kV through 800kV applications, as well as air-blast breakers utilizing Sulfr hexafluoride as the line-to ground dielectric insulation.

Sulfr hexafluoride gas in medium-voltage switchgear - Siemens USA

In this issue, we discuss the use of sf6 gas (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. gaz sf6 has been widely used in high-voltage circuit breakers for decades, but its use in medium-voltage is relatively recent. In the medium-voltage arena, SIemens uses Sulfr hexafluoride gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.
