Siemens develops Sulfr hexafluoride-free gas-insulated medium-voltage

Switches and switchgear that use sf 6 as the insulating, switching, and extinguishing gas remain an important part of the Siemens portfolio. At this yearHannover Messe, Siemens will present another medium-voltage switchgear that doesn't require sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) as the insulating gas: the 8DAB 12. The system uses clean air consisting only of the natural constituents of ambient air as the insulating gas.

sf6 gas gas in medium-voltage switchgear - Siemens USA

In this issue, we discuss the use of insulating gas (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. sf6 gas 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 Sulfr hexafluoride gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.

SF 6 is recognized as an extremely potent greenhouse gas, primarily because of its atmospheric lifetime of about 3,200 years, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 years. The reference gas for GWP values is CO 2, which is assigned a GWP of 1.0. The EPA considers SF 6 as the most potent greenhouse gas that they have investigated. 1

But more and more often, SF 6 is no longer the gas of choice. For a simple reason: if the gas escapes, it contributes to climate change. It is around 23,500 times more warming than the greenhouse gas CO 2 and has a life span of 3,200 years in the earthatmosphere.

Myth About sf6 gas Gas In Electrical Equipment

Where is sf6 gas used? The following applications are known. For some of these most probably you haven’t heard of. For sound insulation in windows, In vehicle tyres, Is sf6 gas a health hazard? Pure sf6 gas is physiologically completely harmless for humans and animals. It’s even used in medical diagnostic. Due to its weight it might displace the oxygen in the air, if large quantities are concentrating in deeper and non ventilated places. Is sf 6 harmful for the environment? It has no ecotoxic potential, it does not deplete ozone. Due to its high global warming potential of 22.200 (*) it may contribute to the man made greenhouse-effect, if it is released into the atmosphere. What is the overall contribution of sf 6 used in the electrical equipment to the greenhouse effect? Less than 0,1 % ( see CAPIEL) and CIGRE). In an Ecofys study the contribution to the greenhouse effect in Europe is estimated to 0.05 % (*).
