▣ Abstract :
A portable microwave plasma torch at atmospheric pressure by making use of magnetrons operated at 2.45 GHz or 915 MHz has been developed. This electrode-less torch can be used in various areas including industry, energy, environmental, military and medical applications. For example, chemical and biological warfare agents, if released, pose a great harm to mankind. This portable microwave plasma torch presents a comprehensive decontamination scheme of these warfare agents, including airborne agents and surface contaminating agents, to minimize the destruction caused by the warfare agents. This new decontamination scheme based on plasma devices and electrical discharges uses mainly air and water without any chemicals. A plasma flame device with a moderate size purifies a large volume of contaminated air, providing a rapid and effective elimination of toxic substances in the interior air in isolated spaces.
