Abstract:

The development and results of tests of 3 different arc configurations are presented. A doublering electrode arc unit, when discharging into the atmosphere, provided 40 utilization of theAVAILABLE ELECTRICAL POWER. This ac arc head was subsequently operated in conjunction with the previously constructed vac um system to establish subatmospheric test conditions in the plasma stream. It was found that this arc configurationvacuum system combination resulted in reduced thermal efficiencies. Author
