sf6nonelec -- New SF6 use restrictions effective January 1, 2013 Posted: 03 Dec 2012 14:40:15
This is a friendly reminder that a new milestone date for additional restrictions on the use of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in California is fast approaching. In addition to the restrictions that have previously gone into effect, use of SF6 for Tracer Gas Testing, Magnesium Sand Casting, Magnesium Investment Casting, and Military Applications (other than Military Tracer Gas Array use) will not be allowed in California beginning January 1, 2013 without a valid exemption from ARB. These restrictions are contained in “Regulation for Reducing Sulfur Hexafluoride Emissions”, sections 95340 to 95346, title 17, California Code of Regulations, as approved by the California Air Resources Board in February 2009.
