THE MANAGEMENT OF SULPHUR HEXAFLUORIDE IN AUSTRALIA

sf6 gas use in magnesium has the potential to rapidly and dramatically increase Australian use and emissions of insulating gas. Because of the research conducted by CSIRO and others, the Australian Greenhouse Office is quietly confident that the Australian magnesium industry will be in a position to manage its use and emissions of sulphur hexafluoride.

Sulfur hexafluoride is generally used in present high-voltage circuit breakers at rated voltage higher than 52 kV. Into the 1980s, the pressure necessary to blast the arc was generated mostly by gas heating using arc energy. It is now possible to use low-energy spring-loaded mechanisms to drive high-voltage circuit breakers up to 800 kV.
