Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride in the Power Utility Industry
The SF6 Leak Detector - 3434i from LumaSense offers an unmatched combination of performance and convenience. Based on the company’s Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technology, the system offers highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative gas analysis and detection. The growing environmental requirements and pressures regarding the use of SF6 make LumaSense’s system a coveted tool designed for everyday use.
SF6 Filled Equipment Testing
In order to meet final test standards, as well as to uphold any new regulations that may be enforced to enable the continued use of SF6, a manufacturer of SF6 filled equipment must perform quality assurance testing. The SF6 Leak Detector system's accuracy and low detection limits enable manufacturers to complete these tests more efficiently and with greater precision.
The system is able to measure the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area, where the switchgear (or other SF6 filled equipment) is tested. Although only the total amount leaked is required by today’s standards, it is also advantageous to be able to pin point the leaks. This makes it easier to improve the integrity of the equipment.
Field Monitoring Installed Equipment
Low detection limits, ease-of-use and stability over long periods of time are critical in the field. Enclosed areas that contain SF6 may have leaks, and it is important to know what the concentration in a confined area is prior to sending personnel in and performing work in that area. A reliable system that gives accurate information is necessary for personnel safety and problem identification.
The SF6 Leak Detector system meets all of these requirements for confined area such as substation monitoring. To enable broad area coverage, the detector can be combined with a Multipoint Sampler 1309 monitoring air sample via tubes from up to 24 different points. In addition, the system can operate unattended for long periods of time and be remotely controlled via Ethernet using the LumaSoft Gas Multi Point 7860 software enabling our customers to focus their manpower on other key tasks.
Reliable, Stable and Simple to Use
Turn it on and press the "Measure" button. That's really all that you need to know. The monitor's extended self-test routines maintain the reliability of the results, which are available on-line or can be downloaded as required. The only maintenance tasks necessary are recommended annual calibration and changing the air filter. Both tasks are easily performed.
