Low Power Plasma Torch

The university had received a small used furnace for performing experiments with waste at high temperatures, but they did not have a working plasma torch. After consulting the team, PyroGenesis recommended supplying a 25 kW Minigun Plasma Torch System, with touch screen interface, control and gas cabinets, a power supply, and a water cooling skid. The torch was also designed with an adaptive flange specific to the reactor port where the torch would be fitted. A change order was issued midway in the project to scale up the cooling skid to provide water cooling capacity for the reactor as well, a change which was easily integrated into the project.

The project was delivered on time and within budget. A technical professional was on hand for the start-up of the system. Fully-illustrative installation, operating and maintenance manuals were also provided.
