Pulsed Atmospheric Arc Technology – PAA Technology®
The use of atmospheric plasmas for industrial applications has become widespread in many different sectors. Relyon plasma develops nozzle-type plasma generators which are particularly compact and offer long-term stability. Through the use of a unipolar pulsed high voltage source and a vortex flow in the nozzle, the arc is prevented from stabilising at a “hot spot”.
The arc rotates at a high frequency in the combustion chamber. Despite the high power density, there is only minimal warming of the nozzle and hardly any erosion of the electrodes. The plasma temperature can be freely adjusted across a wide range.
Application Pulsed Atmospheric Arc Technology
The properties of PAA® technology open up a multitude of different application possibilities. For example, this plasma technology is the basis of plasmabrush® PB3 – the high-performance plasma system that is used whenever fast processes require the highest performance.
In most cases, this system is directly integrated into inline processes in industrial and high-speed applications. However, this system is also available as plasmatool handheld unit, which allows flexible and easy surface treatment in industrial applications. Furthermore, it is also available as a complete plasma system for small to medium-sized components in the form of the plasmacell.
