  • Why is sulphur hexafluoride used in electrical transformers

    To use SF6 gas one should 1st leak test the HV vessel using compressed air and soapy water to pinpoint leaks for repair. When all leaks are eliminated the vessel is pumped to a vacuum to remove as much air and other gas as practical. The SF6 would then be loaded into the vessel, commonly up to “three atmospheres” (30 PSI).
