Abschnitt 2 – 2 Definition of Terms/Explanations

In the context of this DGUV Information, the following definitions apply:

  1. 1.

    SF 6 : Chemical formula and abbreviation for sulphur hexafluoride, an inorganic gas with excellent electrical insulating properties.

  2. 2.

    SF 6 -switchgear: an SF6-gas-insulated electrical device enclosed in metal.

  3. 3.

    SF 6 -equipment: operating equipment filled with SF6, such as switchgear, transducers, gas-insulated lines (GIL), high-voltage bushings, capacitors and transformers.

  4. 4.

    SF 6 -gas compartment: part of the SF6 switchgear or SF6 equipment filled with SF6 gas (gas-filled compartment).

  5. 5.

    Equipment room: the room in a facility where SF6 switchgear or SF6 equipment is situated.

  6. 6.

    SF 6 gas compartment work: encompasses the discharging, evacuating or filling of SF6 gas compartments, the opening of SF6 gas compartments as well as work on or in opened SF6 gas compartments.

  7. 7.

    7. Work in equipment rooms: any activities performed in the equipment room not associated with SF6 or its decomposition products.

    Examples of such activities can be the operation of SF 6 switchgear, lighting maintenance, cleaning work, painting work, etc.

  8. 8.

    SF 6 gas servicing unit: mobile equipment operating as a closed system used for emptying, evacuating and filling SF6 gas compartments as well as for cleaning, storing and reprocessing SF6 gas.

    SF 6 gas servicing units are designated according to their different technical characteristics, such as the SF 6 servicing unit, SF 6 gas maintenance unit or SF 6 gas recovery unit.

  9. 9.

    Decomposition products: the decay and reaction products resulting from the decomposition of SF6 due to the application of energy to SF6 switchgear.

  10. 10.

    SF 6 gas container: a mobile, reusable vessel used to store SF6 (SF6 pressurized gas bottle or cylinder)
