Decomposition Products of SF6

  • At very high temperatures, or in the presence of an electric arc, SF6 can be slowly decomposed
  • Decomposition byproducts include lower fluorides of sulfur, which are hydrolyzable, yielding SO2 and HF.
  • Moisture will react with SF6 decomposition products in the presence of an electrical discharge to form a variety of compounds.

SF6 By-Products

Many compounds are formed from SF6 in various concentrations. Below are the major compounds to look out for:

  • SOF4 – Thionyl tetrafluoride
  • SOF2 – Thionyl Difluoride
  • SO2 – Sulfur Dioxide
  • HF – Hydrogen Fluoride

Good maintenance practices will include periodic SF6 gas analysis.
