Power Generation

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
