Pressing matter

on .


One team sponsored by a Russian registered entity "LockTherm LLC", again with no luxury of a glovebox, is taking a very different approach to their experiments and has developed a very ingenious method of pressing pellets for their reactors. The technique is very valuable to would be replicators and has many advantages, it makes powder mixes less likely to 1. loft (i.e. reduce likely hood of particles in air after pressing, protecting operators) 2. react with moisture through the bulk It also makes them far easier to pre-package and distribute and easier to handle predictably insert into a reactor without distributing powder in other places inside the tube as we have previously encountered. Lastly, it is affordable and accessible because it is about as 'garage' as you can do things - it is based on a car jack!
