Monitoring and Safety Solutions for SF6 and Eco Gas Applications

EMT’s comprehensive and growing portfolio of insulating gas management solutions includes a range of portable and fixed monitoring and gas detection systems, to ensure the safety and protection of personnel and assets, whilst meeting global compliance standards.

 

EMT Smartfill CTU

Designed for managing leakage of SF6 from circuit breakers and other plant, Smartfill CTU is a unique SF6 ‘live topping up’ leak management device, which provides 24/7 monitoring and automated continuous top-up of leaking assets, dosing gas as required with no waste and no leakage. This smart system enables operators to start top up remotely; records cylinder pressure to eliminate downtime from empty cylinders; and alerts engineers of any issues via SMS. Smartfill technology reduces SF6 usage, costs and inventory, provides transparency for legislative reporting, and ensures business continuity.

 

EMT Pressure Validation Kit

Designed to deliver fast, simple, accurate pressure gauge verification, EMT DPG solves the problem of inaccurate or out of calibration equipment pressure gauges. Supplied in kit format with fittings and hose for easy connection to asset test points, this essential tool provides engineers with an accurate NIST traceable (ISO 17025) pressure reading and is Eco gas ready.

 

Personnel Gas Safety Monitors

Operating companies have a duty of care to employees to protect them in the workplace from substances hazardous to health and are legally bound by Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL) on SF6, alternative gases and their by-products. EMT offer a range of portable and fixed, personal and area gas safety monitors to protect personnel in hazardous areas such as indoor cylinder stores and confined spaces. From single to multi-gas detection, team protection and area monitoring, these critical devices provide low cost, low maintenance, effective solutions to ensure safety when working with SF6, Novec, Dry Air, and breakdown gases.

 

EMT Site Services

Our Site Services team can provide a range of hire equipment to clients with urgent or short-term instrumentation requirements, including lease of the Smartfill CTU for 24/7 SF6 gas monitoring and leak management. This smart solution negates engineer call outs, the challenges of scheduling engineers for repeated visits to site to top up leaking assets, and the associated costs of managing this.

Products and services expertly developed for best practice SF6 gas handling

Driven by regulation and standards on SF6 emissions, the energy industry is moving forward with strategies for carbon neutrality and the collection, treatment and recycling of SF6 gas. IEC and CIGRE guidelines specify a number of gas handling requirements when performing key tasks within SF6 operations and process control. Key to which, is monitoring and recording SF6 passing through the network; operators must understand how much SF6 has been used, lost, and replenished. Effective maintenance procedures, transparency and accuracy of data are all critical to meeting legislation.

 

EMT specialise in insulating gas management, delivering products and services expertly developed for best practice SF6 gas handling. Our range includes everything from advanced technologies for SF6 filling and topping up, nameplate verification, gas carts and pump systems; to fittings and accessories designed to ensure a more efficient fill during maintenance tasks; and onsite client support services including degassing, top-ups, gas replacement and regeneration.

 

EMT gas handling solutions take into consideration the safety of personnel, time, resource and costs, and deliver complete compliance and traceability of SF6 inventory and usage. Find out more about our market leading portfolio…

Market Leading Insulating Gas Analysis Products & Services

Insulating gases (dielectric gases) are designed to quench, extinguish or prevent arcing when switching high voltage equipment. Switchgear, GIS and other compartments housing SF6 and alternative insulating gases require a specific concentration/purity to ensure optimal operation and to ensure full quenching of discharges.

 

EMT combine expert knowledge in developing world class products with the provision of unrivalled service and support. Our team of dedicated industry specialists have developed a comprehensive range of solutions and services for Insulating Gas Management, which meet the demands of SF6 applications today and the Eco gas alternatives of tomorrow.

 

Our solutions portfolio for Gas Analysis is designed to aid operators in three main application areas:

  1. to ensure gas purity and concentration is in line with OEM guidelines for safe and efficient use of the asset
  2. to measure impurities/contaminants and breakdown products in the asset; why/where they have originated; and how that may affect the operation of the asset
  3. to protect operators’ safety, health and wellbeing; gas leak detection

Measure the moisture in your SF6, alternative eco gas or dry air assets with EMT Moisture Pro

Measurement of moisture in SF6, alternative eco gases or dry air assets is critical to the long-term health and reliability of the assets in T&D utility networks. A simple ‘GO/NO GO’ device, the EMT Moisture Pro is a smart survey meter for fast, reliable and accurate moisture determination. Packed with smart features, Moisture Pro is the essential device for every engineer’s tool kit, and is proving to be the instrument of choice with asset managers and compliance/operations personnel, specifying the unit for inventory – EMT have recently secured an order of multiple units for a major utility in the US.

 

  • Ultrafast analysis results in <2mins – reducing time/costs of gas testing, increasing efficiency/productivity of engineers
  • Highly accurate moisture measurement – 100°C to +20°C measurement range and +/-2°C accuracy over a range of 0-1.5MPa. Measurements also selectable in ppm(v), % rH, g/m3, mg/m3, g/m3 atm., mg/m3 atm., g/kg or °C Td atm
  • Other measurement parameters – temperature (-30 to +50°C) and pressure (0-1.5 MPa(g))
  • Handheld and lightweight – <2.7Kg for the whole kit (<1.5Kg for analyser) manoeuvrable and portable
  • 3.5” colour touch screen – simple intuitive software displays results numerically and graphically
  • Integrated operation with EMT parts – utilising EMT standard hoses and connections ensures engineers can utilise EMT fittings and analysers using the same equipment for reduced costs
  • Predictive end dew point – results within seconds using predictive algorithms
  • Integrated bluetooth communication – bluetooth wireless printer for reports on site
  • Integrated datalogger – comprehensive datalogger for recording measurement results of key site parameters (site, operator, notes) and also visual images
  • Integrated 5 megapixel camera – photos of the asset being tested can be tagged and downloaded from the instrument for audit trail and proof of assessment

The Moisture Pro is the ideal complimentary product to the Eco+ 4 in 1 SF6 & Eco Gas Analyser. Both products will be available for demonstration on booth S110 at CIGRE in Paris from Tuesday 30th August, so be sure to come along to the EMT stand for all the latest technologies from our SF6 & Eco Gas product ranges. There are still appointments available for an in-booth product demo so get in touch ahead of the show

Struggling with SF6 compartment nameplate inaccuracies causing “phantom emissions of SF6”?

The Smartfill Nameplate Validator from EMT solves these problems.

 

Proposed US CARB & EPA regulations allow utilities to retrospectively adjust SF6 nameplate values to the true SF6 content; if it is found to be >2% in variance. Nameplates have been found to be up to 15% inaccurate, leading to inaccuracies in SF6 inventory levels and false “leakages” reported when maintaining or disposing of SF6 equipment.

 

Utilizing EMT’s proven technologies, the Smartfill Nameplate Validator provides a quick, accurate and flexible method for determining the true mass of SF6 within a compartment, with the following benefits:

 

1. No need for a power outage – the test can be run on a live energised system
2. No need to remove all the gas or vacuum – reducing the risk of asset damage and time taken
3. No need for multiple large gas cylinders – minimising safety and manual handling issues
4. No need for extra manpower and time – the test can be run with one engineer <1hr
5. No need for gas carts and dedicated transport – provided in 3x easily transportable Peli-cases <65lb each

 

SF6 nameplate accuracy presents real benefits to utilities, reducing SF6 install base, reducing SF6 stock inventory, reducing reported leak rates and reducing potential fines and punitive actions for SF6 loss that never occurred.

 

Contact us today to see how we can help you effectively manage your SF6 inventory and meet the changes in regulation.
