News Room : GE Grid Solutions

The standard sf6 gas device was not suitable, so GE worked closely with gas equipment suppliers to develop a dedicated g3-filling cart. The key difference between g3 and Sulfr hexafluoride is that g3 is a gas mixture while sf6 gas is a single gas. Elodie Laruelle, GE Grid Solutions Eco-design Engineer, explains: “The critical point for a gas mixture is to maintain the homogeneity of the two components (NovecTM and CO2) throughout the filling process. To ensure this homogeneity, the filling equipment needs to
