Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) is an excellent gaseous dielectric for high voltage power applications. It has been used extensively in high voltage circuit breakers and other switch gear employed by the power industry. Applications for SF6 include gas insulated transmission lines and gas insulated power distribution substations. The combined electrical, physical, chemical and thermal properties offer many advantages when used in power switch gear. Some of the outstanding properties of SF6 which make its use in power applications desirable are:
high dielectric strength
unique arc-quenching ability
excellent thermal stability
good thermal conductivity
