The pride of Multiplaz R&D Engineering is the ecological purity of the Multiplaz 3500 plasma welding and cutting operational process, utilizing alcohol and water as its fuel source.
The use of ordinary tap water as a basic process fluid for plasma cutting, coupled with the design of the torch creates a cleaner plasma, literally creating oxygen as it works.
The use of diluted water with clean Isopropyl and Ethel alcohol in concentrations of 50/60/70%, provide a plasma vapor shield without any shielding gas, eliminating those harmful gas fumes. The plasma flame surrounded by the steam “shirt” in the weld area forcibly weighs down micron particles, (similar to a high pressure hose forcibly watering down an active dusty area), while disintegrating microscopic metal particles from the plasma. This effectively forces away and eliminates many particles from the operator’s respiratory system.
Indeed, it is the usage of alcohol, versus traditional shielding gas and other methods of shielding currently in use with welding processes, that provide a safer exposure to an operators’ respiratory system.
Disclosure: Elimination of Particulate Matter and Welding Fume Toxicity
Multiplaz 3500 provides a much less toxic environment to weld and cut with, reducing particulates and adding no shielding gas method of any form. Science shows no welding or cutting tool is 100% safe, yet science and physics show the Multiplaz patented technology should be the safest system for working in unventilated areas or ventilated areas.
It should be noted that Multiplaz does not claim to eliminate 100% of particles under the steam “shirt” process while welding or cutting. The potential still exists that some particulate could enter into an operator’s respiratory system. The steam “shirt” method utilized eliminates and reduces many of the micron particles arising from the processing of the metals, providing a larger degree of protection to the immediate respiratory area.
Still, health agencies routinely recommend it better to use ventilation sources when welding or cutting with any system whenever possible.
Operators should acknowledge that some gases and particles cannot be easily seen or smelled, that emanate from the consumable electrode or filler rod, in conjunction with a material. These particles can be as small as .01 micron to 1 micron and are carried in the air, and if breathed into the respiratory system can lodge in the lung becoming respiratory irritants.
