  • Alternatives for SF6 | 2020 | Siemens Energy Global

    Another option are certain fluorinated gas mixtures that also have less greenhouse gas potential than SF 6. For example, the Zurich-based energy supplier EWZ has been using such a solution since 2015, and in 2019 a 380 kV plant was erected in Bavaria, Germany. However, these gas mixtures lose their effectiveness at very low temperatures.

  • SF6 gas in medium-voltage switchgear - Siemens USA

    In this issue, we discuss the use of SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. SF6 has been widely used in high-voltage circuit breakers for decades, but its use in medium-voltage is relatively recent. In the medium-voltage arena, SIemens uses SF6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.

  • SF6: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

    SF6 is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, SF6 is an industrial gas that doesn’t exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. SF6 is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. SF6 is certainly no secret in the Norwegian energy industry. Its use is highly regulated, and many of its users are working together to share experience and come up with viable alternatives SF6 is used in wind turbines: TRUE. SF6 is used not in the turbine itself, but in the switchgear that controls the current generated by the turbine. But there is nothing unique about wind turbines. There are no viable alternatives to SF6: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on SF6 at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.
