Sulfur Hexafluoride Supplier to Minneapolis

Toll Company, the primary source for this colorless, odorless, liquefied gas in Minneapolis, transports it in cylinders and tube trailers under its own vapor pressure, as prescribed by general industry standards and practices.

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is most often produced in bunches via the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s relatively high density and inactivity render it an excellent candidate for appliance as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It has found further use as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. Being a high-density inert gas can prove as insurmountable a liability for SF6 as it is a strength; its Global Warming Potential (GWP) is considered problematic. As such, research is now vigorously in play to discover a less environmentally destructive substitute to reduce its use. At this juncture, it is still widely accepted as the insulator of choice in high-voltage applications, but it ought to be applied judiciously and taken back for reclamation rather than simply vented at the time equipment is being repaired.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride has considerable application as an etchant in semiconductor production, as a ready source of fluorine.
