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 demonstrated the ability of the UPT-S5 kW Induction system to heat the stainless steel tube to 1700ºF within one minute. This successful application test for Induction Heating SS Tube for Plasma Research, validated the customer’s use of the system for his testing.
