Many people want to know what role the gas booster pump plays in plasma cutting. Therefore, Xiaobian has sorted out the following contents for you. Let's have a look!
First of all, do you know what plasma cutting machine is?
Plasma arc cutting machine is a machine that processes metal materials through plasma cutting technology. Plasma cutting is a processing method, which uses the heat of high-temperature plasma arc to melt or partially melt (and evaporate) the metal part during workpiece cutting, and removes the molten metal by high-speed plasma momentum.
Then, you need to understand the specific role of gas booster pump in plasma cutting machine. The working principle of the gas booster pump is that the compressed air is used as the driving source without electric drive, and the booster pump is used as the pressure source. When the air source pressure is balanced with the output pressure, the booster pump stops working, and then the output pressure is adjusted by adjusting the driving air source pressure.
When the pump stops working, the output pressure will also stabilize above the pre regulated pressure. When the pressure at the high-pressure output end decreases, the booster pump will automatically supplement the pressure for pressure supplement. By controlling the air intake of the air source, the working frequency of the pump can be controlled, and then the output flow of the pump can be controlled. It has the characteristics of simple operation, safety and reliability.
The plasma cutting steps are roughly pre ventilation - main circuit power supply - high frequency arc - cutting process - arc stop. The gas booster pump can locally compress the compressed gas in the steel structure plant to the plasma cutting machine, which is the choice of auxiliary gas for plasma cutting. The pressure output of the gas booster pump is used as the driving source through the plant air source, which can double the pressure in the plant and avoid the additional cost of purchasing high-pressure air compressor.
