APPLICATIONS OF PLASMA TECHNOLOGIES

Ecology

Plasma pyrolysis and vitrification of various waste

  • Safe treatment and disposal of biomedical wastes
  • Plasma treatment of toxic fly ash originating in incinerators and power plants to inert slag
  • Plasma treatment of organic waste that contains chlorine
  • Safe treatment solution for scrap tires with hydrocarbon production that is to be reused
  • Plasma treatment and disposal of toxic and chemical waste using plasma reactors, including industrial waste

Energy

Waste to Energy Plasma pyrolysis process

  • Various solid fuels (including Biomass, Municipal solid waste, Scrap Tire Waste, low-grade coal etc.) can be converted to synthesis gas and liquid fuel (such as black oil, diesel, kerosene and gasoline fractions) with high efficiency in a plasma pyrolysis reactor.

Production of Nanomaterials

Various nanomaterials can be produced in plasma reactors

One of the most promising fields of HTT Corp. are the production of carbon nanomaterials, silicon nanomaterials etc., capable of improving physical and chemical properties of materials:

construction composite materials

  • concretes (hardness growth by 60%, 2-times hardening time decrease)
  • plastering mixtures (higher adhesion)
  • fillers/putties (higher adhesion)
  • polyamide-based paintwork coatings (dye adhesion and hardness growth by 50%)

polymer composite materials

  • synthetic threads
  • plastics (zytel polyamide – strength increase by 80%, 5-times plasticity growth; fluoroplastic – growth of tribological properties 1.5 – 2 times; patent for neutral optical color filters based on Plexiglas)
  • polymer coatings

general mechanical rubber goods

  • car tires
  • hoses and fillers of various application

medicine

  • selective elimination of malignant cells
  • qualitatively new materials and instruments

semiconductor

  • silicon solar panels (battery)
  • various semiconductor element

 

Construction Materials Technologies

  • Production of high temperature heat insulating microfibers (ultra and super thin) from molten mass or solid minerals.
    State of the art technology and implementation enable the production of ultra and super thin mineral fibbers from hard-to-melt minerals (basalt, quartz, etc). The resulting fibbers are effective heat-insulators and are used to manufacture mats, tiles, cardboard and other products used in construction, aviation and marine, metallurgy and energetic.
  • Production of heat-resistant hollow ceramic microspheres and macro-spheres manufactured from aluminum oxide and zirconium oxide (materials that are widely used as lightweight filling materials for composite materials, sound and heat insulating materials).
  • Plasma finishing of construction materials surfaces: plasma vitrification of concrete, silicates and other construction materials where the two are used as a basis. Depth: 0.1 to 0.8mm.

 

Plasma Processing of Materials

  • Active carbon regeneration
  • Plasma plating
    A process has been developed for the plating of crankshafts of heavy-duty trucks and tractors using wear-resistant materials. Processed parts’ life is 80-100% longer than the guaranteed period of new crankshafts.
  • Extra-fine plating of metallic and non-metallic materials: 0.01-0.1mm
    Metallic and inter-metal plating of various materials, without prior heating: copper plating of carbon, nichrome plating of glass, copper plating of stainless steel, zinc plating of quartz, nickel-based intermetallic compound plating of copper.
  • Thermal processing of materials in the form of powder for various technological processes
  • Production of materials in the form of powder
  • Spheroidization and other types of plasma-chemical agglomeration of powders
  • Industrial processing of hard-to-melt materials
