Base Group also offers pipes for GIS SF6 (Gas Insulated Switchgears insulated by Sulfur hexafluoride). One of the most important requirements of GIS producers is high strength of pipes. It has direct effect on safe and long-term operation of devices used in Smart Grid networks. It also protects against hazardous arc flash in electrical grids.

Thanks to unique production process patented by Base Group, (https://www.basemetal.eu/en/patent-on-manufacturing-power-switchgear-housings/) the company can solve clients’ very high requirements for proper operation, flexibility and safety of smart grid networks. This is possible because of high strength, tightness and purity of joints as well as reduced circularity deformations of pipes. As a result of these parameters these pipes can contribute to overall Safety of GIS operation.
