SF6 Insulated Equipment
Power safety is never more important then when dealing with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). In power generation applications, SF6 gas quenches arcing between electrical contacts. A heavy gas, SF6 is most effective when compressed and is therefore kept under high pressure. Should the pressure drop, arcing can occur, potentially leading to short-circuits, fire and devastating explosions.
Elfab’s SF6 insulated rupture discs follow a unique design to provide high-integrity pressure relief. They combine superior performance features with a wide choice of materials, including stainless steel and nickel. This allows us to tailor our discs to your specific power generation application.
With world-wide approvals and accreditation, our rupture discs offer the following features:
- Non-fragmenting design
- Full vacuum capability
- Range of pressures and flange sizes
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications
- Excellent leak-tightness
- Long operational life
- Holderless – mount the disc directly onto your equipment
- Optional painting for corrosion protection
