Sulfur Hexafluoride Supplier to Denver

Rocky Mountain Air Solutions, the primary supplier of this colorless, odorless, liquefied gas in Denver, conveys it in cylinders and tube trailers under its own vapor pressure, in accordance with accepted industry standards and practices.

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is normally prepared in batches through the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s relatively high density and inactivity pretty much cements its utilization 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. Being a high-density inert gas may also be as much of a liability for SF6 as it is a strength; its Global Warming Potential (GWP) is considered problematic. That being the case, researchers are now vigorously investigating the possibility of finding an environmentally friendlier substitute to lessen its use. For the time being, it holds on to its wide acceptance as the preferred insulator in high-voltage applications, but it ought to be applied with caution and recovered for reclamation rather than simply vented in the process of repairing equipment.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride is very often used as an etchant in semiconductor assembly, as a controllable source of fluorine.
