SF6-free gas handling

Eco-efficient insulating gases for switchgear

The so-called "Alternative Insulating Gases" are usually special gas mixtures with fixed defined mixing ratios calling for new, more stringent requirements on the design of the device. SF6 service and measuring devices can therefore not be used for Alternative Insulating Gases!

As a pioneer in SF6 gas handling with over 50 years of experience, we were able to combine tradition with the requirements of new gas mixtures.

Even if Alternative Insulating Gases are used, the gas must be recovered from the gas compartment during service works. The air must then be evacuated and the gas compartment refilled. In this respect, the handling does not differ noticeably from that of the SF6 gas.

With our "Zero Emission Concept" we have defined a closed technological cycle that covers all gas handling processes with high reliability and without emissions.
