In order to understand the important role of gas booster pump in plasma cutting machine, we must first understand what is plasma cutting machine. Plasma arc cutting machine is a machine that uses plasma cutting technology to process metal materials. Plasma cutting is a process of using the heat of high temperature plasma arc to melt or partially melt (vaporize) the metal part when cutting the workpiece, and remove the melted metal with the help of high-speed plasma momentum.
Then, you need to understand the specific role of the gas booster pump in the plasma cutting machine. The principle of the gas booster pump is compressed air as the driving source, without electric drive. When the pressure source, pressure and output pressure of the booster pump are balanced, the booster pump stops working, and controls the driving gas source pressure through adjusting and controlling the output pressure.
When the pump stops working, the output pressure will also be stable under the pre regulated pressure. When the high-pressure output pressure drops, the booster pump will automatically fill up the pressure and supplement the pressure. By controlling the air inlet of the air source, the working frequency of the pump can be controlled, and then the output flow of the pump can be controlled.
Plasma cutting steps are roughly divided into prevention - main circuit power supply - high frequency arc cutting - arc stop. The gas booster pump can compress the compressed gas in the steel structure workshop to the plasma cutting machine, which is the best choice of auxiliary gas for plasma cutting. The pressure output of the gas booster pump acts as the power source to pass through the air source of the factory, doubling the pressure of the factory, avoiding the extra cost of purchasing the high-pressure air compressor.
