Byproducts of Sulfur Hexafluoride (sf 6) Use in the Electric

• In the Netherlands in 1989, an accident was reported involving two people who were exposed to unidentified substances resulting from a switchgear equipment failure (Mauthe and Pettersson 1991). The equipment contained SF 6; upon failure, a small amount of powder was observed (likely solid metal fluorides). Both people recovered within two weeks.

The Problem with Humidity in sf6 gas Gas-Insulated Systems

To prevent operational and safety issues, it is important to measure and monitor humidity levels in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Due to its excellent dielectric capabilities, sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is the preferred insulator in electrical transmission and distribution equipment. Switchgears insulated with SF 6 gas are tightly sealed. However, over the lifetime of the equipment, impurities may find their way into the gas compartment via hoses, gaskets, and gas handling equipment.

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
