SF6-alternative gases equipment equipment

SF 6 SF6 (or Sulphur Hexafluoride) had been the standard gas used inside high voltage electrical equipment as an insulating and arc-quenching medium. However, SF 6 SF6 is also listed as an extremely potent greenhouse gas according to the Kyoto protocol, with 23,500 times the comparative Global Warming Potential of CO 2 and a lifetime of 3,200 years in the atmosphere.
