sf6 Gas Mixture gas insulated substation equipment

Powerplant and substation electrical staff are very familiar with sulfur hexafluoride or SF6 which is a common insulating gas used in electrical equipment like electrical switches and circuit breakers. For many decades, SF6 has been the go-to dielectric insulating material for high-voltage electrical systems installed in enclosed spaces.

    It was just two years ago that GE announced a breakthrough in developing a substitute for SF6 in gas-insulated equipment. Such a substitute had become necessary because SF6, despite its undeniable qualities—its arc-quenching and dielectric capabilities—has a global warming potential (GWP) 23,500 times that of CO2, with a lifetime in the atmosphere of over 3,000 years.
