wika sulphur hexafluoride fittings

Fittings are also known as CGA (Compressed Gas Association) fittings. They are brass for good corrosion resistance. Fittings with left-hand threads are identified with a notch in the nut. Note: Fittings have a CGA number that corresponds to a specific type of gas. Choose a fitting with the same CGA number as your tank and other system components.

  • Industrial SF6 Gas Pressure and Measurement Products - WIKA USA

    Although sulfur hexafluoride is nontoxic and nonflammable, escaped gas in enclosed rooms displaces oxygen in the air and could lead to asphyxiation. SF 6 is also a potent greenhouse gas – 23,900 times more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping infrared radiation in the atmosphere. In addition, TD plant safety depends on the purity of SF 6 gas. Under normal conditions during an electrical discharge, the six fluorine atoms split from the sulfur atom to capture electrons; after quenching

  • 15 FAQs about SF6 Gas and SF6 Breakers - WIKA blog

    What is SF6 gas? Sulfur hexafluoride is an octahedral (eight faces and six vertices) molecule. It consists of six fluorine atoms surrounding a sulfur atom. What are the characteristics of SF6 gas? SF6 is colorless, odorless, nonflammable, and nontoxic. It is virtually inert, which means it is stable and does not react with other chemicals under normal conditions. Why is SF6 gas such a good dielectric medium? First, dielectricity is the ability to transmit electricity without conductivity, and dielectric strength refers to how well something can withstand high voltage without breaking down. What is the importance of arc quenching in T&D equipment? When switching or opening an electrical circuit that deals with more than 250 volts, as the contacts start to open, an arc forms between them.

    Sulfur and fluorine form a very useful chemical compound as sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). It is an excellent insulation gas, e.g. in medium and high-voltage switchgears of electricity grid operators. However, as SF6 works in gas-insulated switchgears, it is highly susceptible to one natural enemy: moisture!

  • Responsible handling of sulphur hexafluoride - WIKA blog

    Sulphur hexafluoride – or SF6 gas for short – is, so far, the gas with the strongest known greenhouse effect. Its contribution to the greenhouse effect is about 23,000 times that of CO2 and is persistent in the atmosphere. Due to its specific properties, SF 6 gas has been used in many different industries.
