concordegas IR SF6 density sensor in high electrical switchgear

Gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) is very compact and therefore represents a space-saving alternative to classic air-insulated installations. The low insulation distances are guaranteed by the high dielectric strength of the sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas. A perfect condition of the insulation is essential for ensuring a reliable operation of GIS. The characteristics of the SF6 gas also allow the extinction of arcs which can occur during disconnection of live contacts.

  • SF6 Sensors | Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) | smartGAS

    SF 6 sensors for gas-insulated switchgears (GIS) The main area of application for the non-flammable gas sulphur hexafluoride (SF 6) is insulation of electrical high-voltage switchgears, transformers and cables. Although sulphur hexafluoride is non-toxic and non-flammable, its global warming potential is about 24,000 times higher than carbon dioxide (GWP=23,900).

  • Myth About SF6 Gas In Electrical Equipment

    Where is SF6 used? The following applications are known. For some of these most probably you haven’t heard of. For sound insulation in windows, In vehicle tyres, Is SF6 a health hazard? Pure SF6 is physiologically completely harmless for humans and animals. It’s even used in medical diagnostic. Due to its weight it might displace the oxygen in the air, if large quantities are concentrating in deeper and non ventilated places. Is SF6 harmful for the environment? It has no ecotoxic potential, it does not deplete ozone. Due to its high global warming potential of 22.200 (*) it may contribute to the man made greenhouse-effect, if it is released into the atmosphere. What is the overall contribution of SF6 used in the electrical equipment to the greenhouse effect? Less than 0,1 % ( see CAPIEL) and CIGRE). In an Ecofys study the contribution to the greenhouse effect in Europe is estimated to 0.05 % (*).
