At DILO Company, Inc. and DILO Direct, we are committed to zero emissions of SF6. One molecule of SFcan trap 23,900 times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period, making it the most potent of all the greenhouse gases. About 80% of manufactured SFis used in high voltage equipment like switchgears and circuit breakers. Ideally, SF6should be confined within equipment, but unfortunately it can be leaked into the atmosphere during the equipment’s lifespan. Faulty equipment and improper installation, servicing, and de-commissioning can also be sources for SF6 emissions. Best management practices can reduce the occurrence of leaks. DILO and DILO Direct help prevent emissions of SF6 by spreading awareness. We are leading the charge in the industry for responsible handling of SF6 with state of the art DILO equipment, SF6 training and certifications, and premium services that are second to none.

Resources:

  • Well-informed and trained technicians can greatly impact the reduction and elimination of SF6 gas emissions. The Environmental Protection Agency created a great poster resource highlighting best industry practices to prevent emissions. Check it out here.
  • Has it been a while since you brushed up your SF6 handling skills? Well trained SF6 users have a drastic impact on reducing SF6 emissions in the industry. Contact sales@dilo.com to learn all about SF6 from the experts!
  • DILO’s May Newsletter focused on the SF6 Emission Reduction Partnership for Electric Power Systems. This partnership, which seeks and implements low cost solutions to reduce SFemissions, has been very successful! Read it here
  • DILO’s late CEO, Lukas Rothlisberger, wrote a white paper covering nameplate capacity and the difficulties faced by SFusers in gathering accurate emissions data. Read it here
  • Did you know what SFcan be reconditioned to a like new condition? DILO’s June newsletter is about DILO Certified SFgas, which eliminates emissions caused during the manufacturing of virgin SF6. Read it here
  • Most people outside of the Electrical Utility Industry are unfamiliar with Sulfur Hexafluoride and its characteristics that make it the best dielectric medium available. The month of August kicked off our Reconditioned Gas Campaign. Our goal was to educate others about the special properties of SFwhich make this gas 100% recyclable. Choosing to reuse SFversus purchasing virgin gas is a small change that can have a big impact on our environment.
