Summary of SF6 gas

SF6 gas application

SF6 is used as an insulating medium and an arc extinguishing medium for electrical equipment. Mainly used in transformers, switches, combination appliances, transformers, linier accelerators, coaxial cables, waveguides, X-ray equipment and capacitors. In addition, there are also lightning arresters, pipeline cables, electrical storage and other electrical equipment also use SF6 as the insulating medium.

SF6 gas hazards and solutions

1. Hazards

Greenhouse gas: The Kyoto Protocol clarifies that SF6 is one of the greenhouse gases. The Bali Roadmap also reaffirmed the role of the Kyoto Protocol. SF6 gas can be stably stored in the atmosphere for 3,200 years without decomposition, and its greenhouse effect is 23,900 times that of equivalent carbon dioxide. Safety issues: The leakage of SF6 gas will not only cause safety issues of the power grid, but also cause environmental pollution and endanger personal safety.
