advantages of sf6 gas insulated switchgear LeakSpy

SF6 is an inert gas. So in normal operating condition the metallic parts in contact with the gas are not corroded. This ensures the life of the breaker and reduces the need for maintenance. SF6 has high thermal conductivity which means the heat dissipation capacity is more.

  • Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) Advantages -

    4 mins readNov 21, 2010Gas Insulated Substations are used where there is space for providing the substation is expensive in large cities and towns. In normal substation the clearances between the phase to phase and phase to ground is very large. Due to this, large space is required for the normal or Air Insulated Substation (AIS). But the dielectric strength of SF6 gas is higher compared to the air, the clearances

  • SF6 Sensors | Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) | smartGAS

    During the operation of gas-insulated switchgears the purity of the SF 6 decreases and the protective function of the SF 6 gas is reduced. This is the result of arcs that occur during switching of the high-voltage switchgears and cause chemical transformation of the sulphur hexafluoride molecules.
