SF6-alternative gases high voltage switchgear equipments

Potential applications of SF 6 -free gas mixture, called g 3 and based on 3M™ NovecTM 4710 Dielectric Fluid for dielectric insulation and arc switching into high voltage apparatuses are reported with the aim to be low in toxicity and to reduce the global warming potential of the new mixture to typically less than 2% of the SF 6 equivalent with no or minor design modification with respect to typical SF 6 design.
