Nationwide SF6-Filled Circuit Breaker Services

SF6-Filled Circuit Breakers use Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) gas to extinguish the arc formed during the operation of the breaker. SF6 gas is an excellent insulating and quenching medium, making it suitable for use in high-voltage electrical equipment such as switchgear and circuit breakers.

When the breaker contacts open, an arc is formed between them, which generates heat and ionizes the SF6 gas. The ionized gas (plasma) conducts the current and extinguishes the arc. SF6 Circuit Breakers are widely used in power transmission and distribution systems due to their high reliability, safety, and compact design.
