This paper provides a case study of the design aspect of non-transferred and transferred torches. Designing a plasma torch, especially for the disposal of Municipal Solid Waste requires many parameters to be taken into account. The parameters are choice of material of construction of electrodes, cooling of electrodes, reduction of disintegration or consumption of electrodes, choice of carrier gas, cooling effect of carrier gas, rotation of point of discharge of electron on cathode using magnetic field, and none the less, type of power supply, that is AC, DC and Radio frequency.
