07 Nov 11 Ruthenium Metal – Invulnerable to Aqua Regia

We show the element ruthenium and the interesting property that it is immune to hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. Even when combined to make the gold-dissolving acid “Aqua Regia” the element ruthenium is completely immune to it. So how do you dissolve ruthenium? Interestingly, ruthenium can be dissolved in a very simple household chemical: bleach! This gives a glimpse into complex “rock paper scissors” game of chemistry. A substance like gold might be immune to bleach, but vulnerable to acid. While another metal, might have the opposite reactivity, being completely immune to acid, but vulnerable to bleach.

17 Oct 11 Baileigh Sheet Metal Brakes, Box and Pan Brake, Metal Forming Machines

Baileighs sheet metal brake line is regarded as an industry standard in HVAC and metal fabrication shops throughout North America and parts of Europe. Each sheet metal brake has been articulately designed and constructed to offer value and profit to the fabricator for a reasonable investment that will offer your organization decades of use. Please read on for further details or click above on the category you wish to explore. Baileigh offers one of the most extensive lines of sheet metal brakes on the market today. We have metal bending brakes from 24 inches up to 13 feet in length. Capacities range from 22 gauge down to 10 gauge mild steel. We offer standard manual leaf or programmable hydraulic type metal bending machines. Our machines can be broken down into two classifications, straight brakes or box and pan brakes. Our machines are all are constructed with the best quality steel on the market and designed for years of service. Where needed we use heavy duty truss rods on the lifting apron and upper beam. Depending on the machine we use springs, counter weights or hydraulics to help lift the apron. Our sheet metal brake machines have lubrication points where needed and have hardened fingers and surface areas where needed. Sturdy floor frames are standard. The manual straight and standard box and pan sheet metal benders clamp the material with the top beam with the finger or die. Then the counter weighted assist helps the operator lift the bottom apron to complete the

10 Sep 11 Porous Metal & MIM : DigInfo

DigInfo – Using their MIM, Metal Injection Modeling process, Taisei Kogyo is making a new type of porous metal which allows for the control of pore size to as small as 1 micro meter. In the MIM process metal powder is mixed with space holder agents and binder elements to create the porous structure. Specific agents and binder elements, which are removed during the third stage of the MIM process, are used to create different chemical reactions and make different porous metals. Many types of metals can be used in this process such as Titanium, Steel and Copper with a wide variety of applications such as air bearing systems, and systems that distribute heat well such as the body of space ships and air conditioning systems.

***For screening times visit – *** OPERATION 8: Deep in the forest . On October 15, 2007 activists around New Zealand woke to guns in their faces. Black-clad police smashed down doors, dragging families out onto roads and detaining some without food or water. In the village of Ruatoki, helicopters hovered while locals were stopped at roadblocks. Operation 8 involved 18 months of invasive surveillance of Maori sovereignty and peace activists accused of attending terrorist training camps in the Urewera ranges — homeland of the Tuhoe people. Operation 8 asks why and how the raids took place. How did the War on Terror become a global witch-hunt of political dissenters reaching even to the South Pacific? Currently screening around the country! To find out when and where visit us at:

08 Aug 11 Bonding Metal Piping

Exposed metal piping systems in a building should have zero voltage between them, and a low-impedance path to ground. In many homes, all of this may be ensured by bonding hot and cold water pipes, and gas pipe, to each other where they converge at the water heater (if gas-fired). Contrary to popular belief, water is a poor conductor, and some fittings at or inside water heaters could insulate the hot and cold piping systems from each other. So intentional, solid metal connections between all pipes ensures a robust current path. The path to ground is ensured ONLY IF THE ELECTRICAL SERVICE HAS BEEN PROPERLY GROUNDED AND BONDED. There should be a grounding electrode conductor from the service disconnect equipment to a metal water service entrance pipe (if metal and installed through earth), and to a supplementary driven ground rod or other electrode. Additionally, the connection to the water pipe should include a bonding jumper that maintains the connection, even if the water meter is removed for servicing. The electric service bonding connects the electric utility grounded conductor and the local grounding system to local earth, equalizing any voltage that might otherwise exist between the utility ground (potentially 100’s of yards away) and local ground. Such concerns do not arise often (or obviously) during normal use, but localized voltages around lightning strikes, induced at-a-distance (without need for direct strikes) will cause less damage if local bonding in your
