  • SF6 Leak Rates from High Voltage Circuit Breakers - U.S

    ULFUR hexafluoride (SF6) is a gaseous dielectric used in high voltage electrical equipment as an insulator and/or arc quenching medium. SF6is the most potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential that is 23,900 times greater than that of carbon dioxide (CO2); it is also very persistent in the atmosphere with a lifetime of 3,200 years.
