  • SF6 (GIS) gas insulated substation Manufacturer in China

    The SF6 gas insulated substation (GIS) is assembled by several SF6 gas insulated switchgear configurations in an outdoor enclosure which could reach IP54 protection grade. With the advantage of SF6 gas insulating ability (the interrupting arcs capability is 100 times more than air), gas insulated substation could operate in stable condition for more than 30 years.

  • Gases and Gas Mixtures for Insulation Purposes | SF6 Gas

    SF 6 /N 2 mixtures have been used in Gas Insulated Transmission System and were found to perform well. Also, the work done so far has shown that the ability of SF 6 /N 2 mixtures to quench high current arcs is promising. The cost of such mixtures is low and are less sensitive to field non-uniformities present inside the equipment.

  • News Room : GE Grid Solutions

    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.
