Plasmas are classified by several parameters that include the amount of ionization, plasma density, and plasma temperature among others. The proposed concept intends to analyze the syngas composition and obtain energy and mass balances for a variety of local and campus-generated waste. Sponsor: California Energy Commission, PIR-08-036
Here is an inventory of the different biomass being experimented with at the moment, they were donated from local companies: [Click Here]
Thermocouples (TCs) have been connected to a Data Aquisition System and placed along side the ArcWhirl® to record the temperature of the plasmas at 4 different locations. Here is the transient test data collected: [Cick here].
