To generate plasma, we apply an electrical field to a gas, with the goal of removing electrons from their nuclei. These free-flowing electrons give the plasma key properties, including its electrical conductivity, a magnetic field, and sensitivity to external electromagnetic fields.
In this application test, the customer provided sample parts to be induction heated. Ultraflex needed to demonstrate the feasibility of the UPT-S5 kW system for Induction Heating SS cup for plasma research, by heating the cup to 1350 – 1400 0F (732-760°C) within three minutes.
