SF6 gas is a halogen compound which has a very negative impact on the environment. The greenhouse effect for SF6 is 23,900 times as large as for the same quantity of CO2. SF6 gas is one of the six greenhouse gases which are prohibited from freely escaping into the atmosphere. The harmful effect on the environment makes the safe and gas-tight use of SF6 an important issue for society as a whole. It is essential to use gas-tight equipment and gas-tight processes in connection with SF6.
HAUG compressors are ideally suited for compressing SF6 gas due to their oil-free, dry-running, hermetically sealed design, and non-contact magnetic coupling. The compressor is air-cooled. The scope of supply is adapted to the customer requirements and ranges from the compressor block to the completely piped system with control.
HAUG compressors offer:
- no gas contamination and contamination of plants and equipment by oil-free compression
- technically sealed gas compressors during operation and at standstill and thus no leaks to the environment
- Application in gas recovery systems for the maintenance of high voltage switches
- Application in industry and production facilities where SF6 is used
HAUG SF6 compressors are used throughout the world by leading manufacturers of SF6 recovery plants for gas-tight and oil-free compression.
