  • SF6 compressor - gas recovery: HAUG Sauer Kompressoren AG

    SF6 gas is a halogen compound, which as a greenhouse gas has a very harmful effect on the environment. It can remain stable in the atmosphere for 3200 years. The greenhouse effect for SF6 is 23900 times as large as for the same quantity of CO2. HAUG Sauer built since the 70s SF6 gas recovery compressors in the power range from 0.5 to 30 kW.
