The system uses a vertical plasma torch, observed via a direct radial-view technology.
First, preliminary results dealing with time-resolved emission spectroscopy in the anode area of the waterargon plasma torch were already published [11].
In plasma spraying, the anode nozzle is one of the key components of the plasma torch. Slight geometrical structure modification will result in a strong change in the length and stability of the plasma arc, the characteristics of plasma jet, and the thermal efficiency of plasma torch.
Among their topics are characteristics of melting incinerator ashes using a direct current plasma torch, the cogeneration of renewable energy from biomass: utilizing municipal solid waste to produce electricity through gasification, landfill minimization and material recovery through waste gasification in a new waste management scheme, the thermal and catalytic pyrolysis of plastic waste, and the hydrothermal upgrading of Korean municiple solid waster for solid fuel production.
The purpose of incinerating radioactive waste is to reduce waste volume, Sawai said, adding that using a plasma torch is the common incineration method around the world, as it generates temperatures of up to 15,000oC to melt mixed waste materials into liquid for storage as high-level radioactive waste, she said.
The jig was fabricated to attach the plasma torch in front of the cutting spindle with the movement distance around 100 mm for z axis and 80 mm for x and y axis respectively.

The properties of electromagnetic wave in unmagnetized and magnetized plasma are studied experimentally with a plasma torch. The schematic diagram of the experimental setup is shown in Figure 4.
All models include the Hypertherm full suite of products - CNC control, plasma system, plasma torch height control and MTC programming software.
