Richard Feynman* implied that real discovery was somewhat like finding a new type of flame
Is MHI’s Stable Cascade E-ion a new type of flame – made from just air/electric?
About the Cascade e-Ion Technology
The Cascade e-Ion technology is a Stable Thermal Cascade Plasma Generator. Also called the CleanElectricFlame®. The break through process produces a high watt density atmospheric pressure-level plasma plume, capable of rapidly cleaning, deburring, depositing, growing, hardening, joining, reacting of gaseous to metallic materials and many more applications like rapid brazing, rapid heat treatment, and ultra-low cost of total energy degradation.
Customer Testimonial. “I had a look at your table comparing the cost and various features of (standard RF) plasma nitriding and MHI (Cascade) e-ion plasma nitriding machines and the advantages of the later are remarkable. This type of comparison ……… an alluring proposition for any stakeholder to purchase such an equipment”.
Cascade e-Ion Plasma™ technology uses electricity and just air (or any other gas) to produce a CleanElectricFlame® plume that contains ions, electrons, radiation and hot gas. It is a versatile tool for several possible applications. To the best of our knowledge this is the only plasma generator that offers close to 100% power transfer – thus making it a unique high-efficiency directed energy source. Applications could include the formation of a single layer of atoms (or stacks), with far-reaching potential. Known as two-dimensional materials, this class has grown within the past few years to include lattice-like layers of carbon (graphene), boron (borophene), hexagonal boron nitride (white graphene), silicon (silicene), phosphorous (phosphorene) and 2d oxycarbonitrides or special carbon nitrogen compounds.
