TechTopics No. 111. Sulfr hexafluoride gas and U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The use of sulfur-hexafluoride (SF 6) gas globally has been the subject of a large amount of discussion for many years, both in the U.S., and worldwide. SF 6 is recognized as an extremely potent greenhouse gas, primarily because of its atmospheric lifetime of about 3,200 years, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 years.

Sulfur Hexafluoride (sf 6) Circuit Breaker Market Analysis

Sulfur hexafluoride circuit breakers protect electric systems by interrupting electric current when fault occurs. They consist of current-carrying contacts that operate in sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) gas. Excellent physical and chemical properties of sulfur hexafluoride, including electro-negativity, arc extinguishing, insulation, non-inflammability, and stability, drive the global sulfur hexafluoride circuit breaker market.

Going Green: Tracking Down the “Greenhouse Gas” gaz sf6 with

Jan 01, 2009 · Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF 6), used as an insulator in high-voltage utility equipment, has been targeted for emissions reduction by the EPA. Together, the EPA and many major utility companies are working to better control SF 6 emissions because it contributes more to the greenhouse effect than any other gas and has a projected atmospheric life of 3,200 years.

Energy Emission - DNV

The sf 6 gas is used at DNV GL’s test sites inside customers’ test objects and in DNV GL’s auxiliary breakers. Emissions result both from test failures of the customers’ objects and through handling of the insulating gas gas. The emission of this substance is 0,56% of the total usage of sf6 gas gas at DNV GL’s premises.
