Ensure your gas insulated assets remain operational this winter

Mitigate the effects of cold temperatures on GIS and circuit breakers with EMT best practice testing, handling and repair technologies.

 

Cold temperatures can affect GIS on high and medium voltage substations causing:

 

  • Changes in insulating gas pressure
  • Insulating gas leaks
  • Inefficiency of gas cylinders
  • Ingress of moisture
  • Liquefaction of insulating gases

To avoid low pressure alarms, environmentally damaging leaks and equipment failure, utilities operating in cold climates can mitigate these issues through planned maintenance of gas filled switchgear and circuit breakers to ensure the efficiency of assets, safety of personnel, and protection of the environment.

Changes in insulating gas pressure

Leakage of insulating gases can result in low pressure alarms, which can shut down operations if these are below acceptable levels – monitoring with EMT Smartfill Eco+ multi-gas auto filling and topping up system ensures business continuity where assets must remain operational.

Insulating gas leaks

Gas filled equipment can be more vulnerable to leaks as winter approaches. EMT Leak Hunter portable leak detector quickly and accurately detects leaks for early intervention. Leaks are then repaired using a unique flange repair system installed by qualified EMT Site Services engineers.

Inefficiency of gas cylinders

Cooler temperatures can reduce the efficiency of gas cylinders by up to 25%. EMT cylinder heater blankets are the perfect accessory for more efficient filling and topping up of gas filled assets. The gas is evaporated to enable the full content to be used, increasing cylinder efficiency, which amounts to significant savings.

Ingress of Moisture

Lower temperatures can lead to ingress of moisture. Moisture levels in gas assets can lead to potential catastrophic failure and reduced asset life. EMT Moisture Pro portable dew meter provides fast, accurate, smart moisture determination in critical assets.

Liquefaction of insulating gases

In very cold temperatures, SF6 used in outdoor circuit breakers can liquefy, which can be prevented by using specific gas mixtures to lower the liquefaction point of the mixture. EMT SmartMix gas delivery and conditioning system provides the ideal technology to achieve stable and repeatable gas mixtures.

Performance of Gas Analysers

At this time of year, service and calibration of gas analysers is particularly important. EMT analysers operate without limitation in the most extreme weather conditions. Ensure your equipment is in optimum condition for peak performance this winter.

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.

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…

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
