    • Cylinder for SF6-free, environmentally sustainable 3M™ Novec™ Insulating Gas

      3M™ Novec™ Insulating Gases

      • 3M Novec Insulating Gases combine excellent dielectric performance and safety with desirable environmental properties. When used as a component of advanced insulating and arc-quenching gases in the electric power industry, they provide the potential to significantly reduce environmental impacts associated with SF₆. These versatile fluids enable a wide operating temperature window and are suitable for both medium- and high-voltage applications.
      • Benefits include:
        • Non-flammable
        • Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
        • Low global warming potential (GWP)
        • A wide margin of worker safety
      • Learn about insulating gas applications for the electric power industry

    • ABB AirPlus™ SafeRing™ equipment using SF6-free 3M™ Novec™ Insulating Gas for power utilities

      Reliable SF₆ alternative

      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.

    • Electricity pylons in green field with power plant at the horizon

      Low global warming potential (GWP)

      SF₆, used in gas-insulated 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.
