new SF6 Equipment Replacement system

Also, over the past year or so, the price of new SF6 gas has increased in price by as much as 600%!! Due to the above reasons, SF6 is used mostly in applications that allow reclamation as opposed to using it on equipment that requires release of the gas, only to be re-filled with virgin SF6.

  • Alternatives for SF6 | 2020 | Siemens Energy Global

    Hermetically sealed systems with clean air as an insulating gas take up more space than SF 6, but combined with digitalised current and voltage transformers these systems can be built as small as current SF 6 systems. In addition, they are durable and can be used without any problems at the lowest temperatures - down to -50 degrees Celsius.

  • Electric Power Systems Partnership | Fluorinated Gas

    Emission SourcesMitigation OptionsRelevant LinksFrequent QuestionsThe most common use for SF6, both domestically and internationally, is as an electrical insulator in high voltage equipment that transmits and distributes electricity. Since the 1950’s, the U.S. electric power industry has used SF6in circuit breakers, gas-insulated substations and other switchgear used in the transmission system to manage the high voltages carried between generating stations and customer load centers. Several factors affect SF6 emissions from electric power systems, such as the type and age of the SF6-containing equipment (e.g., old circuit breakers can contain up to 2,000 pounds of SF6, while modern breakers usually contain less than 100 pounds) and the handling and maintenance procedures practiced by electric utilities. Because of its long life span and high global warming potential (GWP), even a relatively small amount of SF6can impact the climate. The electric power industry uses roughly 80 percent of all SF6 produced worldwide. Ideally, none of this gas would b...
