Test to see how much power we can put into a dog bone and if a hot "dummy core" will be able to be seen through a "Fat Coil"
Discussion on test designed to answer if it was likely that it was the core that was hotter than the heater coils in the Lugano test.
Here we introduce the rig that Alan Goldwater built to help understand Alumina Emissivity
Calibration with Thermocouples, paint, Optris camera, and Williamson Pyrometer.
Using a modified lost wax process to assist in creating a channel in the Silicon Carbide Dog Bone when we fill it with alumina.
Ryan and Bob discuss the specific challenge of getting the castable ceramic into the SiC heating element.
Here is the key peace of equipment we have long sought to verify the thermal claims made for the Lugano reactor. Just in time, Hotset CZ and Optris Germany came through.
This Fedora hat needed a little more than one week to go from Chicago to north part of Sweden. Mats G Danielsson, Sundsvall, Sweden Get your brown (tan) Fedora from http://www.hats-plus.com/p-1925-henschel-corduroy-fedora-hat.aspx And send us a clip saying who you are/where you are from and "Let's Light the New Fire together"
In the search for a way to affordably seal Alumina, Alan Goldwater attempts, with some apparent success, to achieve the goal by directly applying an oxy acetylene torch and moulding/fusing/annealing the end into a sealed cap.
