What effect would a high sulphur environment have on circuit breaker life?

Circuit breakers with silver contacts must not be installed in a sulphur environment. The sulphur reacts with the silver of the contacts and creates a silver sulphur film which is a perfert electrical insulator. Circuit breakers must be protected from exposure to sulphur.
