Maintenance sf6 gas switchgear leak check

Because SF6 has a global warming potential that is almost 24,000 times greater than CO2, it gets a lot of attention. And since the electric power industry is responsible for nearly 80% of the world's usage, our industry has taken significant steps to reduce or eliminate the emissions from gas insulated switchgear.

  • SF6 handling in industry | Sauer Compressors

    For maintenance purposes, SF6 must be evacuated from gas insulated switchgear. To do this, the gas is pumped out into portable recovery systems (see photo), where it is then filtered and fed to the compressor, which compresses it. The final pressure is generally 40 barg. Once cooled, the gas can be stored in a liquid state.
