EMT News Gas Monitoring and Safety

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…
