Microsense SF6 decomposition Leakmate in high electrical switchgear

Because of its low dissociation temperature and high dissociation energy, SF 6 is an excellent arc quenching gas. When an electric arc cools in SF 6, it remains conductive to a relatively low temperature, thus minimising current chopping before current zero, and thereby avoiding high overvoltages.

  • Three abnormal situations leading to an uncontrolled release

    Jun 18, 2019 · A release of SF6 is very unlikely to be provoked by a fire. If it should occur, average temperatures are likely to be too low (because SF6 will be rapidly dissipated by convection to lower temperature regions) to lead to significant decomposition, which requires at least 500° C. SF6 is non-flammable and will have an extinguishing effect.

  • The SF6 Decomposition Mechanism: Background and Significance

    Jan 24, 2017 · Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) has been widely used in substations. The insulating medium used in GIS is sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas. However, the internal insulation defect existed in GIS would inevitably lead to partial discharge (PD), and cause the composition of SF6 to SOF2, SO2F2 and SO2 and other characteristic component gases.
