When it comes to medium and high voltage circuit breakers, there is no better electrical insulator than sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). Unfortunately, the same properties that make SF6 such a great insulating gas also make SF6 the most potent of all greenhouse gases. With the ever-growing challenges of federal & local reporting and a shift towards more eco-friendly practices, the industry is seeking ways to reduce SF6 emissions.
As Winston Churchill said, “Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.”Selecting the correct recovery system is a crucial part of SF6 gas recovery. DILO has an App to help make the task easier than ever before! Click below to read more.
Here at DILO, we sure do talk a lot about SF6. It’s our job, as the SF6 experts! What is sulfur hexafluoride used for? The electrical industry accounts for 80% of SF6 gas usage, but some of its other applications might surprise you. Click below to read more.
When it comes to medium and high voltage circuit breakers, there is no better electrical insulator than SF6 gas. How does SF6 gas work in a circuit breaker? Why is circuit breaker electrical testing important? Are there SF6 gas handling considerations when working on an SF6 gas circuit breaker? Read on to learn all this and more.
Did you know that the penguin is DILO’s mascot? Penguins all over the world are threatened by climate change. April 25 is World Penguin Day. Read on to learn how DILO is helping to reduce worldwide SF6 emissions to help protect these flightless birds.
