    Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6)

    Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) has excellent insulating properties and effectively extinguishes arcs in equipment commonly used in the power industry. In addition to its advantages, SF6 has a significant disadvantage – it is a greenhouse gas with a very high GWP (global warming potential). Therefore, it is essential to take care of the tightness of power equipment and to improve the skills of personnel working with sulfur hexafluoride. Activities in this area have been regulated by European Commission regulations for years. They aim to reduce SF6 emissions and promote good practices among energy industry professionals.

    The PROZON Foundation offers assistance in SF6 gas management. Provides and arranges transportation of specialized cylinders and lends recovery equipment. It regenerates and recycles gas recovered from circuit breakers and switchgear, and conducts comprehensive gas composition testing and quality assessment in accordance with the current PN-EN IEC 60480 standard. In addition, PROZON Foundation for Climate Protection is accredited by the Office of Technical Inspection to examine personnel operating equipment filled with SF6. PROZON Foundation for Climate Protection also recovers SF6 gas from power apparatus and disposes of it regardless of the voltage rating of the equipment.
