NDIR SENSORS FOR Sulfr hexafluoride MEASUREMENT - smartGAS Mikrosensorik

insulating gas (sulphur hexafluoride) is a non-com- bustible and non-toxic gas. Throughout the world it is used primarily for insulating electrical high-voltage switching systems, transformers and cables. It is also used as an etching gas in semiconductor produc- tion and as a tracer gas in environmental simulations. The sensors measure either the purity and quality of the insulating gas in the systems or reliably detect minute sf6 gas quantities in indoor air.

The Problem with Humidity in Sulfr hexafluoride 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.
