Detected leaks must be immediately repaired
Article 3 of the F-gas regulation (EU) 517/2014
This claim already corresponds to common practices within the area of energy transmission and distribution and hence does not represent any new requirements to energy providers.
In case of leaks and a possible replacement of facility components, the SF6 gas must be handled (recovery and filling) and the gas quality must be determined.
Depending on the SF6 quantity in the gas compartment and the available time, the correct service cart should be selected in order to ensure economic maintenance. By using our time calculator, you are able to calculate the estimated times required for SF6 gas recovery and evacuation of air online.
With the DILO personal protective equipment, the repair/maintenance can be subsequently carried out without endangering the personnel.
