link this guy has a bunch of mhd stuff a great blog.worth reading.talks about mhd being used for earthquakes and searching for minerals. also some hints at the b2 bomber and also international cooperation in mhd research.
i dont think brass will be able to handle that heat.i may need to make a plumbbob out of iron/steel. im also worried about the silicone catching fire .the ceramic should be fine. i may only need that temp at the bottom of unit and not entire central collumn.
1924 patent using mercury gas i like this guys english.not all scientifically.clear and precise. talks about expansion nozzle which is what i was calling venturi/washer. he is able to get high efficiency without barium.even talks about stripping almost all kinetic energy from gas.
actually the bottom numbers are pressure in mm hg x centimeter spacing of electrodes. i thought mercury vapor needed a vacuum to ignite into plasma but this chart shows it under pressure and lower voltage ignition at higher pressure. but cascade of current is possible and this is the reason for controls on mercury vapor lamps.as current is hard to get at high voltage,an overflow of current is a good thing. after ignition.heat that is not lost from cooling should be directly converted to current.and is emitted as uv.another words meltdown of unit would be impossible at normal use, i suspect. the chart shows 10,000 vdc as max.if thats a not a typo then machine should not produce xrays.
im going out on a limb here but i think it would have to supply voltage once it self ignited due to 1500°f temp.as a plasma. the unit may work right now if i can get that temperature. but i first i need to get an iron plumbbob.

Not sure where the nearest Plumbbobs-R-Us is... [grin] Best of luck getting what You need!

the reason i show this chart is the majority of plasma is created in the uv spectrum.as the heat increases,its mostly converted to uv.ionizing radiation.nothing in the infrared.no heat for melting iron pipes.
this is from that 1924 patent showing polarizing flow .it may explain what the coil is doing.making a magnetic field from the spirals.dense,negative charge flow.ive believed it so, but couldnt find anything to back it up.
