Essentials of insulating gas monitoring | TD Guardian - Siemens USA

Because Sulfr hexafluoride has a global warming potential that is almost 24,000 times greater than CO2, it gets a lot of attention. And since the electric power industry is responsible for nearly 80% of the world’s usage, our industry has taken significant steps to reduce or eliminate the emissions from gas insulated switchgear.

sf6 gas gas in medium-voltage switchgear - Siemens USA

In this issue, we discuss the use of sf 6 (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. sf 6 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 sf 6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.
