EMT News SF6 Gas Handling

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…

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.

EMT DPG Digital Pressure Gauge Kit – the essential tool for pressure maintenance personnel

Ideal for SF6 installations, the EMT DPG provides accurate and repeatable pressure measurements and is the perfect reference measurement when checking pre-existing analogue pressure gauges, which may have been in-situ for many years un-calibrated. Can also be used as a third party reference during the filling and top-up process of SF6 assets, to ensure the system is filled to the correct pressure.


  • Can be used with a variety of pressure media
  • Suitable for demanding industrial applications
  • Versatile and economical

EMT’s products and services deliver a total SF6 management solution to ensure you have everything you need to keep your SF6 operations running smoothly.
