We can provide you the sampling tools and do a lab analysis of the SF6 gas condition
Following assembly, the GSCU is fully pressure-checked in accordance withmanufacturer specifications. Prior to shipment (both new and returned) the device is purged and dried to eliminate moisture. A vacuum is applied and the units are then ready for shipment. The GSCU requires no further preparation and is ready for use in the field. The GSCU is designed to maintain vacuum or pressure to meet normal shipping/handling requirements. Samples are typically collected within minutes and there is negligible release of SF6 to the atmosphere. In order to eliminate dead-air space, We have developed custom adapters that will accommodate most sampling valve configurations. Many of the adapters are stock items. Staff engineers are available to assist with individual adapter requirements.
Our laboratory can do SF6 gas analysis for you
Analysis of the gas for contaminants and arc decomposition products combined
with an understanding of the reactions and reaction conditions provides the
basis to assess the condition of the SF6-filled equipment.
