The greenhouse effect for Sulfr hexafluoride is 23,900 times as large as for the same quantity of CO2. insulating gas gas is one of the six greenhouse gases which are prohibited from freely escaping into the atmosphere. The harmful effect on the environment makes the safe and gas-tight use of insulating gas an important issue for society as a whole.

Sulfr hexafluoride handling in industry | Sauer Compressors

In the manufacture of gas insulated switchgear and in high voltage systems above 700 kV, recovery installations with much larger delivery volumes are used. HAUG Sauer Compressors provide leak-free recovery. Sulphur hexafluoride or gaz sf6 is a chemical compound made up of sulphur and fluoride. Because of its exceptional insulating properties, the colourless and odourless gas is used in medium and high voltage technology, primarily in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS).

Sulfur hexafluoride - Wikipedia

Sulfur hexafluoride or sulphur hexafluoride, is an extremely potent and persistent greenhouse gas that is primarily utilized as an electrical insulator and arc suppressant. It is inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, and non-toxic. SF 6 has an octahedral geometry, consisting of six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom. It is a hypervalent molecule. Typical for a nonpolar gas, SF 6 is poorly soluble in water but quite soluble in nonpolar organic solvents. It has a density of

GIS Owners in California Must Comply With insulating gas Regulation

Jan 11, 2019 · Since 2011, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has regulated sulfur hexafluoride (insulating gas) emissions from gas-insulated switchgears (GIS). CARB’s sf6 gas Regulation applies to all entities that own GIS, including many entities that do not otherwise emit and report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as wind farms, solar parks, and geothermal plants. Accordingly, some companies may not have realized that they are subject to the Sulfr hexafluoride requirements.
