  • SF6-alternative gases HV Switchgear advantage

    Relevance of SF6 in Switchgear and its Contribution to. SF6 is used as an insulating medium in Switchgear and the SF6 free Switchgear, while having all the same advantages as SF6 based Switchgear, such as compactness, uses environmentally safe insulating mediums. This is the reason behind the massive appeal of SF6 alternatives.
