IEC 60480:2019 provides criteria for the re-use of sulphur hexafluoride (SF

6

) and its mixtures after recovery and reclaiming from electrical equipment (e.g. for maintenance, at the end-of-life).


Sulphur hexafluoride (SF

6

), nitrogen (N

2

) and carbon tetrafluoride (CF

4

), are gases commonly used for electrical equipment. Taking into account environmental concerns, particular attention is paid to re-use criteria for SF

6

and its mixtures with N

2

and CF

4

for its use in electrical equipment. Procedures for recovering and reclaiming used SF

6

and its mixtures are outside the scope of this document and are described in IEC 62271-4.


This document provides several annexes on the description of the different methods of analysis, on by-products, on the procedure for evaluating the potential health effects from by-products, on cryogenic reclaiming of SF

6

, and on reclaiming recommendations.


Storage, transportation and disposal of SF

6

and its mixtures are outside the scope of this document and are covered by IEC 62271-4. Procedures to determine SF6 leakages are described in IEC 60068-2-17.


For the purposes of this document, the complementary gases used in SF

6

mixtures will be limited to N

2

or CF

4

.


This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2004. This edition constitutes a technical revision.


This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:


• specifications for the re-use of SF

6

have been confirmed;


• specifications for the re-use of SF

6

mixtures, namely SF

6

/N

2

and SF

6

/CF

4

mixtures are included;


• as a result of a new repartition of annexes in IEC 60376, IEC 60480 and IEC 62271-4, this new edition now contains the following five annexes:


– Annex A: Description of methods of analysis (on-site and laboratory);


– Annex B: By–products of SF

6

and its mixtures;


– Annex C: Procedure for evaluating the potential effects on health from by products of SF

6

and its mixtures;


– Annex D: Reclaiming recommendations.


– Annex E: Cryogenic reclaiming of SF

6
