Certain gases, such as SF6, are renowned in the electrical industry for their ability to push the maximum electrical field without breaking down. At NCE, we know that these gases play a critical role in your daily operations, but we also know that handling them safely and efficiently can become a complicated task. 

That’s why the expert technicians at NCE provide turnkey services for managing all of your Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) Gas Handling projects. When you partner with NCE for your gas handling services, your organization will never again wonder the answers to questions such as “how do you properly store gases?” or “how do you dispose of SF6?”. Our technicians are incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and always trained in the most up-to-date practices and regulations.

Leave ALL of Your Gas Handling Needs to NCE! 

SF6, or Sulfur Hexafluoride, is an incredibly powerful greenhouse gas primarily used as an electrical insulator. Because of its incredible strength, there are certain ways that it needs to be handled, transported, and even disposed of to ensure proper safety and make sure everything is done under regulation. A small misstep in this long and complicated process can be both a major safety hazard and cost your business money. 

NCE technicians are fully trained and qualified to handle every single step of the gas handling process, including filling new SF6 breakers, degassing existing SF6 breakers for maintenance and decommission, transporting SF6 to and from the job sites, and ultimately disposing of them. In addition to their training and qualifications, NCE technicians also have experience in working on large-scale GIS projects that require these services. Here’s what we offer:

  • SF6 Gas Fill
    • Circuit breaker up to 765 KV
    • GIS Bus up to 500 KV
  • SF6 Gas Reclamation
  • SF6 Disposal
  • SF6 Gas Analysis

When it comes to SF6 gas handling, safety should always be a top priority, and at NCE, it is our top priority. Because SF6 is a colorless, odorless, non-flammable, extremely potent greenhouse gas, it makes it an excellent choice for an electrical insulator. While SF6 may not be a toxic gas, exposure to it can cause serious harm to your health, such as suffocation, eye irritation, skin rashes, and chemical burns. Due to the fact that SF6 is so potent, it is crucial that your SF6 gas handling needs are managed by an NCE technician. 

We Dispose of Your Gas For You! 

Are you still wondering how do you dispose of SF6? Well, when it’s time for disposal of your tanks, the used SF6 by regulation must be incinerated. This must be done by trained personnel and must take place within an accredited incineration plant. Luckily for you, NCE has all the necessary technology, experience, and clearance we need to dispose of gases without any interruptions. We’ll ensure that your operations are always seamless and the gases you need are always stocked up and ready to go.
