Abstract:

Installations with power from 30 to 100 kw which create plasma from argon, nitrogen, argon-hydrogen and nitrogen-water mixtures have been developed. The operation and parameters obtained at an installation with the power of 100 kw operating on nitrogen are described. The installations contents are listed, mainly featuring a plasma gun. The guns use is described in great detail and problems in its use are listed. Laminar flow in plasmatrons are cited. Methods for igniting the plasmatron are described.
