Experimenis were carried out to investigate the operation of an electric are, stabilized by air, in a plasmatron. The cathode was in the form of a glass, while the anode was a heavy-walled tube; both were constructed of copper, The electrodes were water cooled. During the experiments the following quantities were measured: (I) wafer and air consumption, (2) water temperature, and (3) are current and the voltage drop on it. The measurements were carried out at an air pressure of about one… CONTINUE READING
