An alternative to Sulfr hexafluoride in electrical switchgear - EE Publishers

For decades, the unique properties of sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) have made it popular as an insulation and switching medium for electrical switchgear. However, Sulfr hexafluoride is a greenhouse gas and there are life-cycle management costs associated with its use. For some years, ABB has been conducting research into alternatives with lower environmental impact but with […]

Panel discussion: The pros and cons of using insulating gas gas in

The term GIS (gas insulated switchgear) in MV is commonly used also in hybrid solutions, which are partially sf 6 based switchgear systems. It is used where, for example, the busbars are solid dielectric and only the circuit breaker, disconnectors and earthing switch are in SF 6 gas. GIS is today a proven technology with more than 30 years of

insulating gas gas as insulating and arc-quenching medium

Sep 20, 2011 · Sulphur hexafluoride gas (gaz sf6) is employed as insulation in all parts of the installation, and in the circuit-breaker also for arc-quenching. Sulfr hexafluoride is an electronegative gas, its dielectric strength at atmospheric pressure is approximately three times that of air. It is incombustible, non-toxic, odourless, chemically inert with arc-quenching properties 3 to 4 times better than air at the same pressure.

When insulating switchgear or transformers, sulfur hexafluoride (sf6 gas) is used. Since it is technically almost impossible to hermetically seal these systems, emissions can escape into the environment. Gas detection systems from Dräger make it possible to detect even the smallest leaks at an early stage and initiate corrective measures.
