Zero Emissions. Zero Substitutes- for Our Planet.

By Danielle White

 

In its pure form, Sulfur Hexafluoride is a thermally stable, arc-quenching gas with an unmatched dielectric strength. These characteristics have made SF6 the desirable medium for insulating high-voltage circuit breakers. Unfortunately, these benefits come with drawbacks as SF6 has a potent global warming potential and remains in the atmosphere for thousands of years.

What can you do to eliminate SF6 emissions while in the field?

 

  • Obtain proper training for SF6 gas handling and certification. Service personnel well-versed in the topic of gas emissions and the detrimental effects of global warming is imperative for reducing the environmental impact of SF6. Operator knowledge can not only reduce the occurrence of released gas first hand – but can build a culture of environmentally conscious users in the Electrical Industry.

 

  • Use reliable SF6 Maintenance Equipment built to contain gas while maintaining switchgear.  Check to make sure that connections and fittings have been leak tested with proper seals.

 

  • Encourage SF6 reuse whenever possible. SF6 is 100% recyclable. Utilizing properly treated gas that exceeds OEM requirements helps to reduce the carbon footprint in North America.
