THE USE OF SHAW MOISTURE METERS IN THAT APPLICATION
Sulphurhexafluoride is used in transformers and high-voltage switches as an insulator. If it is wet it no longer insulates, old SF6 may become contaminated with corrosive impurities if there has been much arcing at the switch contacts. This can degrade the sensor. Another application is when the gas is used as an insulator in particle accelerators. Usual moisture: <-60°C.
