Industrial Plasma Torches and
equipment for their operation


The PLAZARIUM TPS industrial plasma system is a combination of equipment integrated into a structural and functional package intended for conversion of electric energy into thermal energy with production of high-temperature ionized gas stream.

The plasma system is designed as a single monoblock with equipment for operation of plasma torches, with arc starting devices (oscillators), superheaters, and industrial steam plasma torches connected to it.

The process steam plasma torches within the PLAZARIUM TPS plasma system are intended for creation of a high-temperature plasma jet of large volume and heat power. They are applied in any plasma-chemical reactors for plasma gasification and remelting of different raw materials types, for disposal of hazardous waste with full destruction and with production of ecologically pure synthesis gas (СО + Н2) , in afterburners for the purpose of gas purification from harmful admixtures (resins, dioxins and furans), and for other process uses.

Process plasma torches with capacity of 30 to 350 kW are manufactured in series, and with capacity over 350 kW, under the client’s order. An industrial plasma system is supplied complete with 1 to 10 primary plasma torches and up to 10 backup plasma torches. The bulk temperature of the heated steam (the flare zone) is over 5000 °С.
The composition of the water-steam plasma: The water-steam plasma consists mainly of hydrogen and oxygen, both of these components are active agents in oxidation-reduction reactions.

Gasification in steam atmosphere provides the way for complete conversion of carbon and hydrogen in the gasified substance into synthesis gas (СО + Н2), the presence of surplus hydrogen from the steam allows for regulating the ratio of carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the synthesis gas. The volume ratio of hydrogen in the synthesis gas obtained by plasma gasification amounts to 50 to 70%.
The quality of synthesis gas obtained by plasma gasification is as good as the quality of synthesis gas obtained by steam reforming of natural gas.

The maximum calorific capacity of synthesis gas obtained by plasma gasification is 22800 kJ/kg, and it can be stored for future use in the production of thermal and electric energy, production of hydrogen, production of synthetic fuel with subsequent obtaining of motor fuel, and also as additional gas for mixing with natural gas (СН4) and using the obtained gas mixture to cheapen or to increase the consumed volume of natural gas for various needs.
The PLAZARIUM TPS plasma system is a complete set of all the necessary blocks and systems required for functioning and controlling of the primary and backup plasma torches.

The TPS plasma system can be manufactured not only with steam plasma torches but also with air plasma torches and plasma torches for different gas mixtures, depending on the customer’s needs and tasks. The plasma-forming medium can consist of one-, two- or multicomponent gases (argon, helium, nitrogen, air, mixture of argon and nitrogen with hydrogen, ammonia, water).

When manufacturing a plasma system, all the future operating conditions of the plasma torch and the plasma-chemical reactor are taken into consideration: the environmental conditions where the plasma torch and the plasma-chemical reactor will be operated, the type of its use by the consumer (gasification and disposal of waste, robotized systems, metal melting, surface modification, scientific-research purposes, etc).
The PLAZARIUM TPS industrial plasma systems have the following advantages:
  1. The customer-specific systems can be set up in accordance with any different types and capacities of plasma torches and different plasma-forming mediums;
  2. The power systems are manufactured according to the inverter technology, they have the minimum weight and minimum dimensions;
  3. Due to its compact dimensions and minimal external utilities of the monoblock, which are manufactured as the industrial version, the plasma system can be built into any process chain of an existing production cycle;
  4. Mobility (can be installed into transportation vehicles, maritime containers and mobile plasma gasification plants, plasma pyrolysis plants, and plasma cracking plants);
  5. Centralized, fully digital control of all the devices and processes in the PLAZARIUM TPS plasma system, duplicated with fully analogue control, allows for using the plasma system in any conditions;
  6. Possibility of output of partial or full control of the plasma system to a higher-level control system.
