There are certain gasses in the electrical industry that reign superior due to their unique properties and abilities. Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) is one of those gasses. SF6 is highly regarded as a critical gas for its ability to push the maximum electrical field without breaking down. Below, we are outlining what Sulfur Hexafluoride is and how North Central Electric can provide you with premier SF6 Gas Handling services.


What is SF6?

SF6 is an incredibly powerful greenhouse gas primarily used as an electrical insulator. This colorless, odorless gas boasts a vapor density five times that of air. SF6 is used in circuit breakers, switchgear, gas-insulated lines, capacitors, and power, voltage, and current transformers. SF6 is also the most potent greenhouse gas known to date. 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. Due to its incredible strength and effect on the environment, it’s critical that SF6 is handled by expertly trained personnel. If your electric utility and power generation company is located in Conshohocken, PA, and is in need of SF6 gas handling services, North Central Electric is your go-to.
