SF6-alternative gases equipment

May 30, 2019Although gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) is the obvious application for climate-friendly SF 6 alternative gases, it is not the only one. SF 6 can also be used in air-insulated switchgear (AIS), especially for components like circuit-breakers or switch-disconnectors, to be more precise.

  • SF6 Free Gas Handling

    SF 6 Free Gas Handling Alternatives to SF 6. The so-called Alternative Gases are alternatives to SF 6, the preferred insulating and arc-quenching gas used in switchgear in the last few decades.While SF 6 has excellent dielectric properties, it is also the most potent greenhouse gas with a GWP of 23,900. Ideally, SF 6 should be used in closed loop systems and never be emitted into the atmosphere.
