synecom SF6 decomposition joints in high electrical switchgear

Switches and switchgear that use SF6 as the insulating, switching, and extinguishing gas remain an important part of the Siemens portfolio. At this year's Hannover Messe, Siemens will present another medium-voltage switchgear that doesn't require sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) 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.

  • Myth About SF6 Gas In Electrical Equipment

    Where is SF6 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 a health hazard? Pure SF6 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 SF6 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 SF6 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 % (*).
