How Hot is Plasma Cutter?

You feel like these days are hot, global warming is affecting us all and Sun feels hotter than ever… Now, did you know that plasma cutter can reach temperatures easily hotter than surface of the Sun? So, how hot is plasma cutter?


What is plasma cutter used for?

Plasma is a collection of charged particles ... containing about equal numbers of positive ions and electrons and exhibiting some properties of a gas but differing from a gas in being a good conductor of electricity... It is the fourth state of matter after gas. It is an electrically heated gas stream that reaches extremely high temperatures, and this heat is used to cut through metal with high efficiency. Higher quality plasma cutter can easily cut through 200 inches per minute (this may vary according to material of course).


What is the temperature of plasma cutter?

The plasma cutter jet reaches up to incredible 45,000° F (25,000° C)! To put that into perspective, the temperature of the surface of the Sun, on average, is around 10,000° F (5,500° C); and at its hottest, it is estimated that our planet’s core reaches up to 10,800° F (6,000° C). So, we can easily conclude that the plasma cutter is producing very high temperature plasma.


Are all plasma cutters same?

Some plasma cutters are big, industrial, robotized machines surrounded by guard box and similar heavy-duty safety features. But the most common plasma cutters you see are a handheld devices operated manually by operator’s hand control. They are used daily and although they might be very dangerous to operate, in general if handled properly plasma cutters are fairly safe machines which can be used by everyday person with appropriate training of course. Plasma cutters price also vary depending on the model…and some might reach price of thousands of USD (and we should ignore the price of industrial robotic plasma cutters), but most will be couple of hundreds of USD and as low as around $200!

LITAKE CUT-50 Plasma Cutter comes at the great price deal of $189.99! It has perfect quality and usage to price ratio, and will satisfy even industrial standards at only a small fraction of an industrial plasma cutter price.
