Sulfur Hexafluoride Production Cost Analysis 2020
Sulfur hexafluoride, which is also known as SF6, is an inorganic, colourless, odourless, non-flammable, and non-toxic compound. It is an extremely potent greenhouse gas, and also acts as an excellent electrical insulator. Sulfur hexafluoride has an octahedral geometry that is made up of six fluorine atoms, which are joined to a central sulfur atom. It is a hypervalent molecule. Being a nonpolar gas, it is poorly miscible in water but quite miscible in nonpolar organic solvents. It is usually transported as liquefied compressed gas or LPG. Sulfur hexafluoride has a density of 6.12 g/L at sea level conditions that is significantly higher than the density of air, i.e., 1.225 g/L.
Most of the sulfur hexafluoride produced are utilised as a gaseous dielectric medium in the electrical industry. Other notable uses of this chemical compound are as an inert filling for insulated glazing windows and as an inert gas for the casting of magnesium. Sulfur hexafluoride is also utilised to offer a tamponade or plug of a retinal hole in retinal detachment repair operations as a gas bubble.
