Cambridge SF6 Air Sensor Maintance in high electrical switchgear

Endurance: the switching endurance of the SIMOSEC SF6 switch is significantly higher than that of an air switch that merely meets the ANSI C37.22 endurance requirements. Environmental: the switching performance does not deteriorate in adverse environments since the SIMOSEC SF6 switch is isolated from the atmosphere.

    In this issue, we discuss the use of SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride) gas in medium-voltage switchgear. SF6 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 SF6 gas in the load interrupting switch and switch-disconnector in SIMOSEC metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear rated up to 27.6 kV.

  • SF6 Gas Use in Electrical Applications - SF6

    Sep 03, 2018 · sensotec / September 3, 2018. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF 6) is a man-made gas comprising of one sulphur and six fluoride atoms. SF 6 gas is extremely chemically stable, non-flammable and highly electronegative, with an excellent dielectric property of approximately 2.5 times more than air. Therefore, it is commonly used in electrical switchgear, transformers and substations as an electrical insulation, arc quenching and cooling medium.

  • 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 % (*).

The parts subjected to normal wear and agingneed to be serviced for ensuring full reliability of the operations. These parts may be mechanical components or electrical components. The interval at which the maintenance should be carried out depends upon the following factors: 1. The number of short-circuit interruptions 2. The switching frequency 3. The actual service time The actual conditions of use in terms of the frequency of operations, environment and severity of switching duty vary so much that it is impossible for the manufacturer to give detailed guidelines to the user concerning the frequency of maintenance.

  • Sulfur hexafluoride circuit breaker - Wikipedia

    Compared with air-blast breakers, operation with SF 6 is quieter and no hot gases are discharged in normal operation. No compressed-air plant is required to maintain blast air pressure. The higher dielectric strength of the gas allows more compact design or a larger interrupting rating for the same relative size as air-blast circuit breakers. This also has the desirable effect of minimizing size and weight of the circuit breakers, making foundations and installation less costly.
