Sulfur Hexafluoride Supplier to Cincinnati

Wright Brothers, the top source for this colorless, odorless, liquefied gas in Cincinnati, conveys it in cylinders and tube trailers under its own vapor pressure, following general industry standards and practices.

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is usually prepared in batches by means of the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s generally high density and lack of motion are what make it preferable for application as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It also has been used as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. That SF6 is a high-density inert gas can limit its use as well as expand it; it’s been identified as having a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). That being the case, research is now actively in play to find a less environmentally destructive choice to minimize its use. To date, it is still widely accepted as the preferred insulator in high-voltage applications, but it ought to be handled with caution and brought back for reclamation instead of just vented during equipment repair.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride has considerable application as an etchant in semiconductor production, as a manageable source of fluorine.
