FV2C-C 2m3/h Gas Recovery

FV2C-C is a mobile equipment for filtration and recovery of SF6 gas from electrical circuit breakers. The gas is filtered and pumped, from a gas-filled object, to a standard gas cylinder which is connected to the equipment. Evacuation of gas down to 1 mbar.

The equipment is built on a chassis with wheels. Contains electrical cabinet, compressor, vacuum pump, controls (4" HMI display) and measuring instruments as well as SF6 filter and hoses. An air vacuum pump and a coupling piece is available as option.

SF6 evacuation
Hose is connected between portable FV2C-C equipment and gas-filled object via connector (optional). Evacuation of SF6 takes place using an oil-free compressor and dry vacuum pump down to 1 mbar. Storage of evacuated gas takes place in the customer's gas cylinder with a storage pressure of a maximum of 51 bar(abs).

Air evacuation (Optional)
Hose intended for air is connected to object via the supplied connection piece. An air vacuum pump with a capacity of 2.6 m³/h is used for evacuation of air from objects, down to a final vacuum of 1 mbar.

SF6 filling
Filling is done most easily with self-pressure from a gas bottle. If pressure equilibrium between object and bottle occurs, the FV2C-C can be used to pump gas from bottle to object. The gas cylinder can then be emptied down to 1 mbar.



Product Description

Equipment FV2C-C for gas handling and gas recovery of SF6 gas is an automatic gas handling equipment.

FV2C-C is designed with approved and well-tested components for SF6 gas. Leak-free couplings and components in FV1C for gas handling and gas recovery of SF6 are used to prevent emissions of SF6 gas. The machine is delivered test run, leak tested and CE approved with user-friendly manual / documentation for safe handling.

Standard equipment

FV2C-C gas equipment can be supplied complete with the necessary equipment for use.

  • Hose kit for SF6
  • Hose kit for air evacuation (Optional)
  • Connection piece (Optional)
  • Air vacuum pump (Optional)
  • Manual


The frame is a welded and painted steel chassis where the machine's components are mounted. Cover plates are mounted around to protect the equipment. The chassis is equipped with 2 lockable castors and 2 larger wheels for easy transport on site.

Oil-free compressor and dry running vacuum pump

Oil-free compressor and dry vacuum pump are used to pump SF6 gas. Compressor with capacity of 2 - 9m³/h and maximum pressure of 51 bar(abs). If the maximum pressure is reached, the machine is switched off automatically. Dry running vacuum pump with capacity of 3 m³/h and 0.15 mbar final vacuum.

Operating panel

Panel with flow chart and 4" HMI display for automatic gas handling. Manometers for input and output pressure and inlet pressure for compressor. Vacuum instrument showing vacuum value / pressure in 4" HMI display when operating with vacuum pump for SF6.


Particulate and chemical filtration filters to purify used SF6 gas. Interchangeable filter cartridges that filters particles down to 1 micron. Purifies the gas from moisture and chemical residues which are absorbed by chemicals in the filter cartridge.

Air vacuum pump (Optional)

Oil-lubricated vacuum pump intended for evacuation of air. Capacity of 2.5 m³/h and 0.005 mbar final vacuum. Used e.g. after service when the circuit breaker is filled with air and must be emptied before refilling with SF6 gas.

Connection piece (Optional)

Connection piece for connection to electrical equipment. In standard version with ABB/ASEA connection. Connection for extra pressure gauge. Connection for external gas bottle, which allows the connector to be used for re-filling of gas.


Supplied with complete SF6 hose kit, DN8 fittings, to connect the equipment. All hoses are reinforced with stainless steel wire braid with an inner hose made of PTFE. (Air hose to vacuum pump for air is available as an option.)


FV2C-C is delivered as a complete mobile equipment. Handles are mounted for easy movement. The equipment has the dimensions (LxWxH) 800x600x1400 mm.


  • SF6 adapter kit - Adaptation of filling equipment with standard connections for switchgear and breakers (DN6, DN7, DN8, DN20, Hansen, Magrini, Malmkvist (Malmquist), Westinghouse etc.)
  • Material selection – Most components / fittings are available in several materials (eg stainless steel, brass, aluminum).
  • Gaskets and sealing materials – Selected with accuracy based on requirement specification.
  • Measuring equipment – Measuring instruments and connections for fixed installation / external connection (density monitor SF6, vacuum instrument, pressure gauge vacuum, pressure gauge high pressure, couplings for measuring equipment etc.)
  • Gas regulator – Gas regulators adapted according to gas type, pressure and flow with connection to gas cylinder. (N2 regulator, high flow regulators, regulators for alternative gas, gas cylinder connection according to American, English, Chinese standards.)
  • Hoses - Large range of hose sizes and hose types. Special hoses according to customer requirements (dimension, length, pressure, protective casing, reinforcement, coupling type etc.).
  • Filter type - Different types of gas filters to filtrate gas from particles, moisture and residual products. Size is adjusted according to need and flow rate (particle filter, SF6 filter etc.).
