The results of comparative studies of heat transfer to the plasma torch elements and product simulator are presented in this article. The possibility of a significant increase in heat transfer to the product during plasma treatment with a plasma jet by changing the connection diagram of the plasma torch and using a combined supply of plasma and shielding gas is shown.
