Service equipment for installations and corrective maintenance

Filling and handling equipment for SF6 gas are the central tools for the maintenance of gas-insulated equipment. For both installation and maintenance, WIKA supplies the complete product spectrum of efficient service equipment, starting from simple filling carts up to complex, fully automated all-in-one solutions. Furthermore, the instruments support the plant operator with the recording of the SF6 gas volumes and emissions, as is prescribed in the F-gas regulation (EU), No. 517/2014, for specified equipment.

FAQ
FAQ

Is evacuation of plants and vessels possible with a portable SF6 transfer unit?

For complete evacuation of plant and vessels, a second unit, a vacuum compressor for SF6, is required, since, on the input side, a portable SF6 transfer unit only allows a final pressure of slightly less than 1 bar abs..

Is it possible to dispense with a pre-filter when recovering SF6 gas with handling equipment?

Although two filter systems are installed in the WIKA handling equipment (particle filter and SF6 filter), in the event of heavily contaminated SF6, a pre-filter (e. g. GPF-10) should be used to protect the system.
