Standard Specification for Sulfur Hexafluoride
|Publication Date:||10 April 2000|
|ICS Code (Salts):||71.060.50|
1.1 This specification applies to sulfur hexafluoride for use as an electrical insulating gas.
Note 1-This specification is intended to apply only to gas as purchased. However, the test methods referred to in this standard may be useful in the evaluation of in-service or used gas. Test Method D2284 may be particularly helpful since many sulfur hexafluoride decomposition products are acidic. Test Method D2284 should not be used to evaluate the total amount of sulfur hexafluoride decomposition nor to identify contaminant species. This can only be done by gas chromatography and similar instrumental techniques.
