What Are the Safe Ways To Do Plasma Cutting?
Take a look at your own safety all the time when you are dealing with the dangerous concept of plasma cutting.
The plasma cutter has an electric circuit that is found between the so-called torch and the work object. Always be reminded that any friction or motion that taps the work object will also pass the same object through the electric circuit. Be mindful all the time when the plasma cutting is operating and be sure that you are far from the reach of the torch body and any work object.
There are so many types of metals and other electrically conductive metals that are always subject to plasma cutting. The right amount of high voltage electric arc and compressed gas must always be given attention to make sure the job is properly done in cutting the steel, welding materials, and other electrically conductive metals. An absolute high voltage electric arc is needed amounting to 100-200 volts to operate the plasma cutters unlike the welding cutter that normally carries lesser amount that the plasma cutter.
When the plasma cutting is still operating, never try to put out the work object as it might ruin the process. All you have to do is to let the work object rest for a while on the cutting bench tied in a ground cable while the cutting process still going on. Another reminder is the ground clamp must stay stagnant while the plasma cutting process is still there. Just let the ground cable together with the work object rest for a while but never let them be removed while you are still doing the cutting process.
Make sure that you are wearing an insulated boots and gloves that will keep you safe when you are doing the actual plasma cutting process because the tendency getting your body and garments dry is really high.
Remind yourself all the time that you are prohibited to sit, stand, lie or touch and surfaces that are wet just to avoid danger when using the plasma cutter system. Make sure that the ground cable works well and connected to the work object when you are undertaking a plasma cutting process. If there are damages in the plasma cutting machine, always have a plan b and replace it with a new one as soon as possible.
Using boots and gloves is necessary as one must also have proper eye protection if you are in the verge of plasma cutter operation. There are well-known arc rays that creates a highly intense ultraviolet and infrared waves that can ruin your healthy eyes and skin. You should always protect yourself from danger so you should always come out prepared by wearing gloves, welding helmets, flame-retardant clothes, and trousers.
