Sulfur Hexafluoride Supplier to Riverside

Elite Air, the leading distributor of this colorless, odorless, liquefied gas in Riverside, conveys it in cylinders and tube trailers under its own vapor pressure, as prescribed by customary industry standards and practices.

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is most often produced in bunches through the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s comparatively high density and inertness make it ideal for application as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It is equally useful as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. Being a high-density inert gas can prove as big a liability for SF6 as it is a recommendation; its Global Warming Potential (GWP) is considered problematic. That being the case, researchers are now seriously looking to find a more environmentally attractive choice to cut back on its use. For the time being, it holds on to its wide acceptance as the preferred insulator in high-voltage applications, but it’s best used cautiously and recovered for reclamation as opposed to being merely vented at the time equipment is being repaired.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride is very often used as an etchant in semiconductor assembly, as a good source of fluorine.
