  • The basics of high voltage switching equipment in power

    Dec 08, 2020For extreme cold temperature applications (ambient temperatures between −40&C and −50&C), the SF6 gas is typically mixed with another gas, either nitrogen (N2) or carbon tetra fluoride (CF4), to prevent liquefaction of the SF6 gas. The selection of which gas to mix with the SF6 is based upon a given site’s defining critical criteria
