Gas analysers play a pivotal role in the electrical switchgear industry by ensuring the safety, efficiency, and reliability of electrical power systems. Switchgear, which is responsible for controlling, protecting, and isolating electrical equipment, relies on the precise monitoring and analysis of gases to guarantee optimal performance.
One of the primary functions of a gas analyser in the electrical switchgear industry is to detect and measure the presence of gases such as sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), which is widely used as an insulating medium. SF6 is known for its excellent electrical insulation properties but is also a potent greenhouse gas with a high global warming potential. Continuous monitoring of SF6 levels is essential to prevent leaks and minimise environmental impact.
Gas analysers are also crucial in identifying other potentially harmful gases that may be present within electrical switchgear, such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2), and moisture. These gases can result from various factors, including equipment degradation, partial discharges, or improper maintenance.
By promptly detecting and analysing these gases, gas analysers enable proactive maintenance and troubleshooting, preventing costly breakdowns, and ensuring the longevity of electrical switchgear.
By monitoring gas levels and analysing trends, technicians can identify early signs of equipment malfunction or insulation degradation. This proactive approach allows for timely intervention, reducing the risk of unexpected failures, minimising downtime, and optimising the lifespan of switchgear.
