MAIN SCIENTIFIC DIRECTIONS ARE THE FOLLOWING:


  • Energy and substance transfer at high temperatures (2000-15000 K). Test of thermal protection models of space vehicles
  • D.c. and a.c. electric arc plasmatrons. Plasmatron power – from 50 kW to 3 mW for chemical, metallurgical, building, engineering, other industries and large-capacity processes
  • Plasma reactors for processing dispersed materials and solutions, shaft and chamber plasma furnaces for processing and utilization of man-caused waste
  • Study and design calculations of plasma processes and facilities
  • Experimental-industrial equipment and technologies for hollow evacuated microspheres
  • Plasma technology and instrumentation of the production process of superfine mineral fibers
  • Direct production of liquid steel from iron-ore pellets not using coke at the pilot plant.
  • Capacity – 20 000 tons/year. The plasma chemical production process of acetylene and technical hydrogen from natural gas
  • Technology of applying wear-resistant coatings over the worn surface of cylindrical components of machines by the electric arc metallization method
