Sulphur Hexafluoride SF6 Processing
Cooper’s Environmental is committed to the safe management of SF6 degassing. SF6 is an inert, colourless and heavy gas with properties that make it ideal for use in many industrial applications. Due to its high dielectric strength and thermal stability, SF6 is used as an insulator in middle and high circuit breakers, switch gears, and other electrical equipment. However, these properties also make it the gas with the most greenhouse effect being about 22000 times more than CO2. For this reason it must be handled properly and contained within the required limits.
We have extensive experience in handling SF6 gas and understand all the personal and environmental risks associated with it’s handling. Our core objective is to ensure the job is done safely, professionally, and efficiently. We are fully licensed and adhere to all relevant laws and regulations.
Cooper’s Environmental is able to de-gas, wash and dispose of SF6 gas-filled units.
When it comes to disposal of SF6, it’s necessary to involve a professional and knowledgeable partner to manage the process and eliminate the risks of the hazardous waste. At Cooper's Environmental, we provide environmentally friendly and efficient solutions for disposing SF6 gas and equipment.
