INVESTING IN EQUIPMENT TO SERVE YOU BETTER

New SF6 Gas Handling Solution

 

To better serve power generation, utility and large industrial clients, we’ve purchased a new L-series DILO SF6 gas cart. It’s rated to process high voltage circuit breakers up to 500kV and performs all the key functions necessary for environmentally friendly handling of SF6 gas in commissioning and maintenance of gas insulated electrical equipment.

This best-in-class machine features improved technical characteristics and is equipped with all the important functions necessary for professional SF6 gas handling.

DILO’s new generation of service carts are designed for environmentally friendly handling of SF6 gas in commissioning and maintenance of gas insulated electrical equipment. The gas handling units facilitate recovery, purification and storage of used SF6 gas in liquid form. Furthermore, the state-of-the-art gas compartments can be evacuated from air and refilled with the purified SF6 gas.

The new handling units are equipped with an oil-free compressor and oil-free suction pump for recovery of SF6 gas ensuring that a final vacuum as low as < 1 mbar is achieved. An oil lubricated vacuum pump is used for evacuation of air down to < 1 mbar. Moreover, the new generation of service carts is provided with an intelligent and proprietary control system. Ongoing operations are displayed on a 10” touch panel by means of a functional diagram.

National Field Services is committed to continue to invest in the resources we need to help our customers achieve the highest safety and efficiency in their electrical equipment.
