TechTopics No. 111. insulating gas gas and U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The use of sulfur-hexafluoride (SF 6) gas globally has been the subject of a large amount of discussion for many years, both in the U.S., and worldwide. SF 6 is recognized as an extremely potent greenhouse gas, primarily because of its atmospheric lifetime of about 3,200 years, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 years.

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. Sulfr hexafluoride 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 gaz sf6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.
