SF6 gas, also known as Sulfur Hexafluoride, is a chemical associated with human life with many uses that they bring in many different fields such as environment, transportation, health, etc. about SF6 yet? What properties, applications and dangers inherent in SF6? Please refer to the article that introduces below.

What is SF6? Concept of SF6

SF6 is the chemical symbol for Sulfur Hexafluoride, which is inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, extremely strong greenhouse gas and good electrical insulator. SF6 has an octahedral geometry (six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom). Is a type of ascending molecule. Representing a nonpolar gas, SF6 is insoluble in water but soluble in nonpolar organic solvents.

Sulfur Hexafluoride has a density of 6.12 g/L at sea level, much higher than the density of air (1,225 g/L).

History of SF6 gas

SF6 gas has been used by humans since 1990 due to its many good applications. SF6 gas is also gradually introduced into the industries, especially the power cutting industry, applied to electrification substations because of its very high dielectric strength (higher than air) and the ability to extinguish arcs very well. good.

In the 1980s,  SF6 gradually became more accessible to the public, and the applications SF6 brought to people were gradually used more and more. Currently, high voltage equipment uses SF6 gas and low voltage also tends to use this gas.

SF6 is also used in

In medicine, SF6 also has special uses for ophthalmology, treating some diseases related to the human eye.

And thousands of other apps.

Is SF6 gas toxic to humans?

The answer is no. SF6 gas is completely harmless to humans, animals and the environment. However, SF6 can be a greenhouse gas if too much SF6 is exposed to the atmosphere, but SF6 has a very low density (000 ‘000 ‘000 ‘003) so they contribute to the effect. greenhouse only 0.1% total effect.
