    SF6 Leak Detection

    Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) in the Power Utility Industry. Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride in the Power Utility Industry The SF6 Leak Detector 3434i from LumaSense offers an unmatched combination of performance and convenience. Based on the company’s Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technology, the system offers highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative gas analysis and detection. The growing environmental requirements and pressures regarding the use of SF6 make LumaSense’s system a coveted tool designed for everyday use. The system is able to measure the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area, where the switchgear (or other SF6 filled equipment) is tested. Although only the total amount leaked is required by today’s standards, it is also advantageous to be able to pin point the leaks. This makes it easier to improve the integrity of the equipment. The SF6 Leak Detector system meets all of requirements for confined area such as substation Monitoring.

    Testing Fume Hood Flow Dynamics using SF6 as a Tracer Gas

    A safe laboratory environment requires an effective method for clearing toxic material from fume hoods. Since all handling of toxic materials is completed in these hoods, it is critical to have a procedure to evaluate their operation to assure adequate protection for laboratory workers. The InfraRan Specific Vapor Analyzer, factory calibrated for SF6, is an ideal instrument for measuring fume hood efficiency in accordance with ASHRAE and other standards. Manufacturers identify the flow dynamics (factors that affect air flow in the hood and performance with air) using the ratings AM (as manufactured), AI (as installed), and AU (as used). A fume hood evaluation conducted under its operational environment is critical, as these tests will indicate any installation shortcomings as well as direct workers in proper laboratory hood techniques.

    Title : Preliminary Sampling Methodology and Analytical Procedures for Ambient Sulfur Hexafluoride, Corporate Author : ARMY MEDICAL ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH UNIT EDGEWOOD ARSENAL MD Personal Author(s) : Luckan,Susan K. ; Cooper,William J. Report Date : JAN 1973 Pagination or Media Count : 23 Abstract : A preliminary evaluation of techniques of sampling and gas chromatographic analysis for low levels of sulfur hexafluoride was conducted to determine the most feasible method for available equipment. Using a Tracor MT-150 gas chromatograph equipped with Nickel 63 electron capture detector and polarized dc voltable, it was possible to detect sulfur hexafluoride at a concentration of 0.06 ppb with a 5A molecular sieve column and nitrogen carrier gas, without preconcentration of the sample. Also, a comparison of glass and Saran sampling materials proved that no detectable loss of the tracer gas resulted with the Saran bags (between 6 ppm and 0.06 ppb SF6
