MEASUREMENT OF EFFLUENTS FROM PLASMA ARC AND LASER CUTTING.

Objective

IN THE FRAME OF COMPARATIVE CUTTING TESTS WITH PLASMA ARC UNDER WATER (UW) AND LASER BEAM IN AIR, BEING CARRIED OUT BY SEVERAL CONTRACTORS IN THE PRESENT COMMUNITY PROGRAMME, THE COMPLEX MEASUREMENTS OF THE ARISING CUTTING EFFLUENTS WILL BE PERFORMED WITH THE SAME MEASURING SYSTEM AND BY THE SAME TEAM, THUS AVOIDING DISCREPANCIES FROM THE SYSTEM AND GIVING A BETTER BASIS FOR COMPARISON OF OBTAINED RESULTS.

THE CONTRACTOR WILL UNDERTAKE, ON THE SITE OF CONCERNED CONTRACTORS, A SERIES OF WELL-DEFINED MEASUREMENTS ON CUTTING EFFLUENTS AND EVALUATE THE OBTAINED RESULTS.

B.1. MEASUREMENTS/EVALUATIONS OF EFFLUENTS DURING STANDARD UW PLASMA ARC CUTTING TESTS AT CEA - CEN CADARACHE.

B.2. MEASUREMENTS/EVALUATIONS OF EFFLUENTS DURING STANDARD UW PLASMA ARC CUTTING TESTS AT HERIOT WATT UNIVERSITY, EDINBURGH.

B.3. MEASUREMENTS/EVALUATIONS OF EFFLUENTS DURING STANDARD LASER BEAM CUTTING TESTS AT CEA - CEN SACLAY.

B.4. MEASUREMENTS/EVALUATIONS OF EFFLUENTS DURING STANDARD CUTTING TESTS WITH PLASMA ARC AND LASER BEAM AT UNIVERSITAET HANNOVER.

B.5. FINAL EVALUATION IN COOPERATION WITH THE ASSOCIATED CONTRACTORS.
