  • SF6 Gas Hazards and How to Avoid Them - WIKA blog

    Sulfur hexafluoride, a highly effective insulator and arc quencher, is commonly found in the power transmission and distribution industry. But to protect equipment, personnel, and the environment, users must be aware of the common SF6 gas hazards and how to avoid them. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6), when sealed inside power transmission and distribution (TD) equipment, insulates switchgears, circuit breakers, and disconnectors by quenching dangerous arcs.

    However, as SF6 works in gas-insulated switchgears, it is highly susceptible to one natural enemy: moisture! Once present in the gas compartment, it weakens the insulation properties of SF6 many times over. In addition, highly toxic and corrosive decomposition products are formed in combination with moisture and additional energy input.

  • Sulfur hexafluoride - Wikipedia

    Sulfur hexafluoride or sulphur hexafluoride, is an extremely potent and persistent greenhouse gas that is primarily utilized as an electrical insulator and arc suppressant. It is inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, and non-toxic. SF 6 has an octahedral geometry, consisting of six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom. It is a hypervalent molecule. Typical for a nonpolar gas, SF 6 is poorly soluble in water but quite soluble in nonpolar organic solvents. It has a density of
