  • What are the alternatives to SF6 gas? - ECA Today

    Mar 31, 2020The good news is that - for medium voltage (MV) primary and secondary switchgear - tried, tested and increasingly cost-effective alternatives to using SF 6 are already on the market. For example, ABB ’s AirPlus gas insulation alternatives (using mixtures of components in air plus C5-fluoroketones instead of SF 6 ) can reportedly be used in applications up to 40kV.

  • Eco-efficient alternatives to SF6: Continuing the AirPlus

    May 30, 2019When designing gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) with SF 6 alternatives, one important task is to compensate the lower insulation performance – to ensure no flashovers occur during operation and dielectric tests. But SF 6 can also serve as switching medium, today frequently applied in ring main units (RMUs). Up to now facing the ‘switching challenge’ has been circumvented by using vacuum
