While most people outside of the electrical and environmental industries are unfamiliar with Sulfur Hexafluoride, it is a compound that we manage every day at DILO. With over 50 years of SF6 gas handling experience, we understand the importance of responsibly utilizing this gas in electrical and transmission applications due to its high global warming potential.

Well-informed and trained technicians can greatly impact the reduction and elimination of SF6 gas emissions. It is DILO’s mission to provide an interactive platform for leaders and experts to share best management practices, mandatory/voluntary reporting updates, challenges, and safe handling information of SF6 while also focusing on other trends in the industry. DILO's premiere annual conference gives all stakeholders the opportunity to compare and share solutions that align with our “Zero Emissions” philosophy.

Learn From Industry Experts: Engaging presentations and hands-on break out sessions 

An interactive platform for sharing best management practices, reporting updates, challenges, and safe handling information about SF6 gas. Day one of the seminar features presentations from industry experts. Day two consists of technical break-out sessions designed to help gas users optimize SF6 gas handling to increase safety and eliminate emissions.


2022 Break-Out Sessions

Our hands-on break-out sessions are the highlight of the SF6 Gas Management Seminar. Due to recent regulatory updates affecting SF6 gas and requests from 2021 Seminar attendees, we will be featuring two break-out sessions focused on the topic of Alternative Gases along with our SF6 gas handling topics:

Mixing of Alternative Gases

  • Identify the ratio/mixture of alternative gases
  • Understand the importance of liquid vs. vapor in the mixing of alternative gases
  • Prevent cross contamination during gas mixing

Alternative Gas Handling 

  • Identify differences in handling of liquid and vapor gases
  • Explain the differences between alternative gas handling and SF6 gas handling
  • Maintain a homogenized mixture of gases
  • Avoid cross contamination during gas handling

Nameplate Verification 

  • Identify the tools required for Nameplate Verification
  • Locate and document nameplate discrepancy
  • Decipher the SF6 Gas Density Curve to confirm operating pressure

DILO Certified Gas: Reconditioning, SF6 Gas Inventory and Cylinder Management

  • List the benefits of using reconditioned SF6 gas
  • Describe the specifications of reconditioned gas for use and supply with GIE
  • Recognize the difference between reconditioned SF6 gas and following the Three R’s Protocol
  • Perform accounting of gas inventory and cylinder management

Testimonials

"Attending the 2021 SF6 Gas Management Seminar was an eye opening experience and one that will last forever.The broad area covered including gas chemistry and the effort in finding a replacement was sensational.There is a lot of work going on in the area, had I not attended the seminar I would have had no knowledge about. DILO has proven itself to be a leader in protecting and preserving our planet in performing its services worldwide.They have also committed to sharing this information to as many companies and corporations as possible.Being able to bring together most of the industry greatest partners to share their knowledge is great. Thanks DILO."

"The relevant and practical content of this years seminar was fantastic. Thanks for your efforts with providing this forum to share your knowledge and provide education."  -Doug Dyck, Manitoba Hydro

I have been advocating for my electric utility company to be prepared for on-coming tighter GHG emissions reporting legislation; my regular attendance at the DILO SF6 Gas Management Seminar has helped guide my efforts. Thank-you to the DILO team for bringing the community together and supporting a 'zero release' policy for SF6 gas testing & handling.
