SF6 reducing station

This is the latest in a series of indications that the pressure is on to phase out SF6, as part of the EU's mission (2) to cut harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by two-thirds between 2014 and 2030. Replacing SF6 would be a significant contribution by the energy distribution industry as it the biggest GHG contributor for this sector.

  • Gas-Insulated Substations - GIS

    SF6 is used in GIS at pressures from 400 to 600 kPa absolute. The pressure is chosen so that the SF6 will not condense into a liquid at the lowest temperatures the equipment experiences. SF6 has two to three times the insulating ability of air at the same pressure. SF6 is about 100 times better than air for interrupting arcs.

    In the 1970s, both domestic and foreign breaker manufacturers looked for ways to improve breaker interrupting technology based on the unique properties of SF6 while also reducing costs. This improvement was the implementation of puffer interrupters that snuff out the arc versus the earlier design of dual pressure breakers that utilized a two stage (pressure) system.
