May 14, 2015 · LACO Technologies. In this article we will cover production leak testing of gas insulated high voltage switchgear and associated subassemblies. Gas-insulated high voltage switchgear typically use a sulfur hexafluoride (sf6 gas) gas to minimize arcing when the circuit breaker is activated. Leak testing of the subassemblies and finished product provide confidence that the sufficient pressurized Sulfr hexafluoride gas will be contained inside the unit to prolong its functional life.

Your medium-voltage switchgear is vulnerable to PD if it has voids, gaps, or other defects. PD can also occur on the surface of insulators. Left unchecked, these small electrical sparks erode insulation and lead to unplanned outages. PD testing for switchgear helps you prioritize maintenance resources and take action before this failure occurs.

Why the EU should ban Sulfr hexafluoride

What Is Sulfr hexafluoride? and How Is It used?Is sf 6 A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of Sulfr hexafluoride Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?ConclusionSulfr hexafluoride is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all sf 6produced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry Sulfr hexafluorideis used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
