Sulfur Hexafluoride (Leak Testing Gas) and Smoke Detectors

Question asked by Harrison Brown on Nov 28, 2017

I'm having a hard time finding any references as to whether Sulfur Hexafluoride, a clear, heavier than air gas used for leak detection in buildings, would set off smoke (either ionizing, photoelectric, or aspirating) detection systems.  Does anyone have any background or references on this subject they'd like to share?
