Abstract

The paper deals with single-phase AC plasma torches with rod electrodes made of iron-copper composite material, with air as the plasma-forming gas and an life time of ~200 h. The construction peculiarities of this type of plasma torch and its power-supply systems is described. The experimental results, in particular, the current-voltage and the voltage-flow rate characteristics of the plasma torches, as well as the typical current and voltage oscillograms, are presented.
