A range of gases are utilized in manufacturing, production, distribution, and technology sectors - called industrial gases. These include oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, and carbon dioxide, among others. Read more to learn about the procedures for detecting common industrial gas leaks in four steps.
3M’s recent ban on PFAS manufacturing has created a stir among those seeking SF6 gas alternatives. The decision stems from organizations like European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) imposing regulations on PFAS. Learn more about 3M and the ban on PFAS in this post.
They say “Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke”, but even classics need an upgrade now and again. DILO is excited to launch the new and improved B143 V4, also known as the Mini Plus Service Cart. The B143 V4 is best suited for recovering SF6 gas quantities of 88 lbs (40 kgs) or less down to less than 5 mbar. Read on to check out the redesigned Mini Plus and learn what new features will help make gas handling even easier!
Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is widely used in the electric industry. While SF6 gas handling equipment is designed to minimize emissions, SF6 gas can escape into the atmosphere if equipment fails, leaks, or is handled improperly. New research, however, shows that SF6 gas emissions are declining in the United States. Learn more about this study and the importance of safe SF6 gas handling.
For several decades, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) has been widely used in the electrical transmission and distribution industry. New developments have made it easier to handle SF6 without emissions, and the development of alternative gasses offers further advancements for environmental sustainability. In this post, DILO highlights the history of SF6 gas and the evolution of its applications.
