Plasma cutting utilises a high velocity plasma gas jet formed by an arc and an inert gas flow to create extremely high temperatures which melts the targeted material and forces the molten metal through the back side of the cut. The dust generated by this process, potentially combustible and explosive, can form a resistant layer on a filter media surface.  AAF offers a full line of ATEX-certified equipment that can be used to safely control fumes and dust generated from plasma cutting tables.
