wika sulphur hexafluoride Service for gas measurement

Sulfur hexafluoride is widely used as an insulating gas and arc quencher in electrical equipment. However, to maintain its effectiveness, SF6 needs regular cleaning to get rid of harmful impurities. Handling also needs to be done with care, as SF6 is a potent greenhouse gas if it escapes into the atmosphere.

  • The Problem with Humidity in SF6 Gas-Insulated - WIKA blog

    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.
