Novec Insulating Gases offer higher dielectric strength than SF₆ and a wide operating temperature window. They can be utilised in gas-insulated switchgear, circuit breakers, gas-insulated lines (GIL) and more.
SF₆, used in gas-insulated switchgears, power equipment and lines, has a global warming potential 23,500 times that of CO₂ when compared over a 100-year period. Tests indicate alternative solutions using Novec Insulating Gases make greenhouse gas reductions of up to 99.99% attainable.
Recently installed gas-insulated power infrastructure, including gas-insulated lines and gas-insulated switchgear, have proven the effectiveness of Novec Insulating Gases.
