Abstract: We developed a non-intrusive direct procedure of measuring an average electrical conductivity of a plasma volume in hot anode areas of those plasma torches. For our measurements, we used a high-speed camera, a high-voltage probe, and a hybrid water–argon plasma torch. The measurements were made for various values of ambient pressure, arc electric current, and argon flow rate. The measured plasma conductivity is in agreement with a model, camera observations and indirectly also with spectroscopy measurements. The procedure provides missing experimental data on the average plasma electrical conductivity and estimates average plasma temperature in the anode areas. The procedure can be theoretically used in every plasma torch where the anode arc attachment movement can be observed during a restrike process\n
