  • SF6 (Sulfur Hexafluoride) Recovery | Hudson Technologies

    SF6 is widely used as an insulating and arc quenching gas in medium and high voltage transformers. As equipment ages, it is being repaired or replaced with more efficient equipment which typically uses 1/3 the quantity of SF6. This creates a need to recover the SF6 for recycling or disposal.

  • SF6: Does its Impact Outweigh its Benefits? | TD World

    Powerplant and substation electrical staff are very familiar with sulfur hexafluoride or SF6 which is a common insulating gas used in electrical equipment like electrical switches and circuit breakers. For many decades, SF6 has been the go-to dielectric insulating material for high-voltage electrical systems installed in enclosed spaces.

  • SF6 Handling: Why the Full Lifecycle of Product Matters

    Oct 27, 2016The dielectric and heat transfer characteristics of sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) has made it the insulator of choice for circuit breakers, disconnectors, and switchgear in the power transmission and distribution industry.. For decades, the TD sector has relied on SF 6 to effectively quench arcs and to cool and protect its equipment. However, SF 6 is a very powerful greenhouse gas, 23,900 times

  • Handling and Use of Sulfur Hexafluoride Gas

    SF6 gas contains no oxygen and will not support life. Confined areas must be force- ventilated when working with SF6gas. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation on air contaminants, 29 CFR 1910.1000, establishes that SF6gas has no adverse effects when inhaled in the air at a Threshold Limit Value (TLV) of 1,000 ppm.

  • SF6 Worries – The Most Potent and Persistent Greenhouse

    Sep 20, 2019Why worry, leaks!. The discovery of SF 6 can be traced to the work of Henri Moissan and Paul Lebeau in 1901, who found that sulfur reacted with fluorine according to the reaction equation: . S 8(s) + 24 F 2(g) → 8 SF 6(g). Under ambient conditions of temperature and pressure, SF 6 exists as a gas; this property is traceable to the small size and low polarizability of the fluorine atoms
