Importance of Plasma Thermal Energy Transfer for Plasma Jet SystemsIEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PLASMA SCIENCE (2014)
AbstractAtmospheric pressure plasma systems are routinely used to treat the surfaces of thermally sensitive materials. There are wide ranges of commercial plasma jet systems available, and for the end user, it can be difficult to directly compare the power outputs of these sources. This paper evaluates the use of a thermal imaging technique in order to provide a semiquantitative evaluation of energy output from plasma jets. The evaluation involved a comparison of the thermal energy transfer obtained from three commercially available atmospheric pressure plasma jet systems: 1) PlasmaTreat’s Openair; 2) Dow Corning’s PlasmaStream; and 3) SurFx’s Atomflo.
