This International Standard concerns the re-use of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) after removal from electrical equipment (for maintenance, or at the end of life).
This standard recommends procedures for reclaiming used SF6 and for restoring its quality to an acceptable level, which would allow the filling of new or existing electrical equipment.
This standard provides guidance to operational and maintenance personnel for the testing and safe handling of used SF6 .
