  • Electron capture detector(ECD) method for sf6 gas switchgear

    Aug 30, 2019 · The emitted electrons are accelerated in an electric field and ionize the background gas, normally ambient air. Ions and electrons are collected at the electrodes resulting in a steady-state ionization current. The presence of SF6 besides air reduces the number of free electrons, as they are now attached to the SF6 molecules. The decrease in the ionization current is proportional to the SF6 concentration.

  • 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 % (*).

  • Gas Insulated Ring Main Unit RVAC - Electrical and Industrial

    In the case of high temperature arc produced by circuit breaking, SF6 gas will resolve into subfluorides. After cooling down, these active subfluorides will quickly return back to SF6 gas. Therefore, SF6 gas which is used under sealing for a long time will not decrease or deteriorate, although under the effect of arc extinguishing several times.
