Sulfur hexafluoride detector

Monday, 25 February, 2008 | Supplied by: Ampcontrol Pty Ltd


The Austech SF6 leak detector is an extractive gas sampling system designed for the continuous detection and monitoring of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas leaks. The product houses an in-built gas sensor which is designed to enhance the detection sensitivity of SF6.

SF6 is a colourless, odourless, non-toxic and non-flammable gas used in the electrical industry as a gaseous dielectric for high-voltage circuit breakers, switchgear and other electrical equipment. Although SF6 is a non-toxic gas, inhaling high concentrations can displace oxygen in the body and result in asphyxiation. The leak detector reduces risk by detecting SF6 between 50 and 200 ppm.

The single-point, wall-mounted monitor features an in-built electrochemical gas sensor which converts unique gases to a more electrochemically active gas for efficient detection and measurement. The detector also features a renewable sensor cell and 24 VDC operation.

Other detectors are available from Austech for ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, hydrogen chloride, nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, refrigerant, oxygen deficiency and others, all of which are housed in weatherproof stainless steel enclosures.
