On What Occasions and Locations Is It Necessary to Install SF6 Density Monitor?

SF6 Density Monitor is a critical safety device widely used in SF6 switchgear rooms, SF6 circuit breaker chambers, combined apparatus rooms (GIS rooms), SF6 main transformer rooms, and SF6 gas laboratories. When and where should the SF6 Density Monitor be installed? Here is a detailed introduction:

Low-level Area of Distribution Equipment Room Requires the Installation of SF6 Density Monitor

The installation of the SF6 Density Monitor in the low-level area of the distribution equipment room with SF6 equipment is essential. This arrangement helps:

  • Detect SF6 gas leaks in a timely manner, ensuring that gas concentrations are always within safe limits

  • Equip an alarm system to issue alerts promptly so that staff can take necessary actions quickly

  • Enhance monitoring effectiveness through the intuitive position of the SF6 Density Monitor, ensuring stable equipment operation

SF6 Gas Laboratory Requires the Installation of SF6 Density Monitor

The SF6 Density Monitor is installed in the SF6 gas laboratories to:

  • Monitoring the concentration of SF6 gas in the laboratory to ensure operational safety

  • Preventing SF6 gas leaks and taking emergency measures promptly to safeguard the laboratory environment

Large Factories, Substations, etc. Require the Installation of SF6 Density Monitor

Large factories, substations, etc., use a large quantity of SF6 circuit breaker chambers, SF6 switchgear rooms, and other inflatable equipment, hence the need for SF6 Density Monitor to:

  • Monitor the concentration of SF6 gas in real-time to ensure the safety of operators

  • Prevent gas leaks and avoid potential safety hazards

Electric Industry Regulations and Safety Rules

According to the "Electric Industry Safety Regulations" and relevant SF6 safety rules, the distribution equipment rooms and SF6 gas laboratories that have SF6 equipment must comply with the following regulations:

  • Must have powerful ventilation devices to ensure that SF6 gas concentrations are below the specified values.

  • In the low-level area of the SF6 distribution equipment room, oxygen meters and SF6 gas concentration monitors must be installed with alarms.

  • Staff entering the SF6 distribution equipment room must ventilate and use leak detectors to measure SF6 gas content to ensure safety.

Emergency Accident Handling

In the event of an emergency accident, measures must be taken promptly:

  • Immediately activate all ventilation systems for ventilation.

  • Handle power outage, clean with gasoline or acetone to ensure safety.

By installing the appropriate SF6 Density Monitor and following relevant regulations, potential dangers caused by SF6 gas leaks can be effectively prevented, ensuring the safety of equipment and personnel.
