Sulfur Hexafluoride Price Trend

In India, the average price of sulfur hexafluoride was 5590 USD/MT in the fourth quarter of 2021. Sulfur hexafluoride has a voltage range of 33 kV to 800 kV, making it an ideal dielectric medium for circuit breakers. It can be used to create a wide range of appliances with varying operating conditions and operating ranges.

India has the world's third-largest power generation capacity. India's electricity sector is rapidly expanding. As of December 2019, the installed capacity stood at 367 GW, with the generation mix consisting of thermal (63%) hydro (12%) nuclear (2%), and renewables (23% ). The Indian government announced an extremely ambitious plan to double installed capacity over the next decade, primarily through accelerated renewable energy deployment. India installed 9.7 gigatonnes (GW) of power generation capacity between April 2020 and February 2021. India aims to have 225 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022.

About Sulfur Hexafluoride:

Sulfur hexafluoride is an inorganic compound that is colourless, odourless, non-flammable, and non-toxic. It is a powerful greenhouse gas that also serves as an excellent electrical insulator. Sulfur hexafluoride has an octahedral geometry composed of six fluorine atoms connected to a central sulphur atom. It is a molecule with a high valency. Because it is a nonpolar gas, it is poorly miscible in water but extremely miscible in nonpolar organic solvents.

Chemical Formula:

  • SF6


  • Sulfur (VI) fluoride
  • Hexafluorosulfur

Molecular Weight:

  • 146.06 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Metal manufacturing
  • Electronics
  • Power and Energy

Production Processes:

  • Production of Sulfur Hexafluoride from Sulfur and Fluorine

This procedure involves the electrolysis of sodium chloride (brine). As a result, three products are produced: hydrogen, chlorine, and sodium hydroxide. The cathode and anode release hydrogen and chlorine, respectively, while the solution contains sodium hydroxide.
