News Room : GE Grid Solutions

It was just two years ago that GE announced a breakthrough in developing a substitute for sf 6 in gas-insulated equipment. Such a substitute had become necessary because gaz sf6, despite its undeniable qualities—its arc-quenching and dielectric capabilities—has a global warming potential (GWP) 23,500 times that of CO2, with a lifetime in the atmosphere of over 3,000 years.

Sulfr hexafluoride handling in industry | Sauer Compressors

In the manufacture of gas insulated switchgear and in high voltage systems above 700 kV, recovery installations with much larger delivery volumes are used. HAUG Sauer Compressors provide leak-free recovery. Sulphur hexafluoride or insulating gas is a chemical compound made up of sulphur and fluoride. Because of its exceptional insulating properties, the colourless and odourless gas is used in medium and high voltage technology, primarily in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS).
