Mar 31, 2020 · For example, ABB's AirPlus gas insulation alternatives (using mixtures of components in air plus C5-fluoroketones instead of SF 6) can reportedly be used in applications up to 40kV. AirPlus offers low maintenance and, in many cases, similar product platforms to existing SF 6 options, helping customers to transition away from greenhouse gas-dependent switchgear.

  • Why the EU should ban SF6

    What Is SF6? and How Is It used?Is SF6 A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of SF6 Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?ConclusionSF6 is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all SF6produced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry SF6is used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
