DILO SF6 gas handling
Zero emissions and maximum gas re-use
SF6 is a non-toxic, inert insulating and quenching gas of high dielectric strength and thermal stability. Due to its first-class properties it is used in enclosed medium and high voltage switchgear as an arc quenching and insulating gas.
Since SF6 is a major greenhouse gas with high global warming potential listed in the Kyoto protocol, it is among the six gases subject to monitoring. SF6 has to be used in closed systems in order to avoid emissions.
For over 50 years, we have been preferred supplier of devices and equipment for emission-free SF6 gas handling. Meeting our customers‘ requirements for first-class products and services, consistently and without any compromises, is our declared goal.
The path for the DILO brand in SF6 gas handling was laid out in 1967, when the complete piping system for installation of the first SF6 gas insulated switchgear was supplied by DILO. As a result, our product portfolio has successively been developed to the widest product range of emission-free gas handling equipment worldwide. Thus, we pursue three central aims:
- Environmental responsibility
- Reduced operating costs
- Following intenational laws/standards
