• Sustainable progress | ABB

    For over 50 years gas insulated switchgear (GIS) has used sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) as insulation gas, due to its excellent insulation and arc quenching qualities. But SF 6 is the world’s most potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential 23,500 times that of CO 2 and an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years.

  • ABB presents world’s first switchgear that allows customers

    SF 6 (Sulfur hexafluoride) has been a reliable insulation gas used in switchgear for over 50 years worldwide. Although it has excellent insulation qualities, it also has a high global warming potential and is a potent greenhouse gas. Upcoming regulations regarding SF 6 will motivate customers to adopt SF 6 -free switchgear technology.
