Help combat climate change with Sulfr hexafluoride-free MV - ESI-Africa.com

Feb 10, 2021 · The F-gases include SF 6 – or sulphur hexafluoride – that has a global warming potential of around 23,500 times greater than carbon dioxide. SF 6 is still used by many manufacturers as an insulator and switching medium in MV switchgear. Globally, the energy industry utilises 80% of the SF 6 -gas that is manufactured.

Blog | Ending the use of SF₆ in power grids | Eaton | UK

SF 6 gas has been called the power grid’s dirty secret. This potent greenhouse gas is still commonly used in switchgear because it’s such an effective insulator. However, with a global warming potential 23,500 times higher than CO 2, SF 6 poses a huge challenge for the future. With viable alternatives now available, it’s time for power distribution networks to make the move towards more sustainable technologies like air insulated switchgear.
