At Squall International B.V. (hereafter called SI) most of the reworking processes of quartz are done with H2O2 burners. Processes which require specific demands a plasma burner is used as a heating source.
A plasma is a flame with a high purity and an extremely high temperature
Whenever a sufficient amount of energy is transferred to a gas, or gas mixture, at atmospheric pressure, possible dissociation and/or ionization occur. Due to this a thermal plasma is formed which consists of molecules, atoms, ions, and electrons with the most important aspect, electrical conductivity.
This electrical conductivity of the gas makes it possible to extract energy from an alternatin electromagnetic field. With the extracted energy a plasma is formed and maintained.
An inductive plasma, at atmospheric pressure, is characterized by an extremely high temperature
and a high energy density.
