This one-day class will cover the basics of sulfur hexafluoride, a common insulating gas used in substation power circuit breakers. You will learn about the fundamentals of SF6; its associated hazards; gas testing theory and practice; and gas handling practices. You will also learn techniques to find breaker leaks and repair them both safely and effectively. Realworld case studies will be used to demonstrate the discovery, planning, and successful execution of a leak repair.
