DILO Certified SF6 Gas: Behind the Scenes
Sulfur hexafluoride is a man-made gas that has a greater dielectric strength and density than air. The chemical properties of SF6 make it ideal for use within circuit breakers and switchgear; however, one molecule of SF6 can trap 23,900 times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Proper safety and handling procedures can drastically reduce the emissions of SF6, but the manufacturing of virgin SF6 is a known source of emissions. DILO and DILO Direct are committed to zero emissions of SF6. We offer a cost-effective, environmentally friendly solution, DILO Certified SF6 Gas, which eliminates the need for purchasing virgin SF6 from overseas.
