Leading in SF6 gas lifecycle solutions

In order to operate plants with SF6 gas properly, a variety of specialised equipment is needed. WIKA is unique in the market in offering a complete product portfolio and the necessary application experience in the area of SF6 gas lifecycle. Describe your application to us and we will offer the right solution from a single source.

Our strengths for your SF6 gas plants

Worldwide, there are over 1,000,000 WIKA gas density monitoring instruments in use. This number stems from the high quality of our products (which are manufactured and tested throughout to the 5-Sigma quality level) and the customer satisfaction resulting from this. Our measuring instruments are hermetically sealed and temperature-compensated, so that reliable measuring results are achieved even under the harshest operating conditions.

The plant safety of SF6 gas-insulated switchgear is reduced significantly through low concentrations of decomposition products. These decomposition products arise during operation through arcing in moist or impure SF6 gas. In order to detect even the smallest leakages or to warn ahead of gas emissions, we have a range of high-quality gas detectors and emission monitors. WIKA offers a complete product line for gas analytics, including accessories.

Self-sealing valves and permanently gas-tight connections take care that no environmentally hazardous SF6 gas escapes, but rather remains safely in its designated containers.

The service operations, such as evacuation and filling of SF6 tanks or the processing of SF6 gas must be carried out with the appropriate equipment. The WIKA product portfolio of filling and processing instruments covers the range of SF6 gas handling in the T&D industry comprehensively.
