  • FAQs - DILO

    What are Alternative Gases used for? By using SF 6 gas, switchgear can be made much more compact and material-saving, combined with a higher switching capacity and plant safety. Due to the very low GWP value and similar properties to SF 6, these gases are well suited for use in medium and high voltage switchgear.

    Oct 15, 2020Current EU F-gas regulation prohibits the use of SF 6 in many non-electric applications, but not in MV switchgear. Today, about two thirds of the 15 million MV switchgear units installed in Europe (EU28) use SF 6.When the EU F-gas regulation was last revised in 2014, it was considered that no cost-effective and reliable alternatives to SF 6 were available.

  • Gasket design for SF6 leakage - Switchgear Content

    Apr 13, 2019Leaks occur because the gaskets used in the equipment begin to leak as the gasket material deteriorates with age and use. 3 factors are important in gasket design: Hardening of the gaskets. High ambient temperatures and heat produced by the current passing through the circuit breaker in normal use affect the gaskets’ elasticity and harden
