  • Effective Protection Against Flu Viruses In The Air

    A new product from the field of nano technology provides effective protection against bacteria, viruses and bacteria in the air. Will Forte has much to offer in this field. The new coatings based on photocatalytically active titanium dioxide with the material until its almost unbelievable properties given scale by the reduction of titanium dioxide particles in the Nano. So is the new technology that is available under the brand name TitanShield recently able to decompose as well as all kinds of bacteria, viruses and germs to 99.9% within a very short time. This property has an effect not only on the surface itself, but also in the air surrounding them. This is a perfect solution especially indoors, because here, for example, ceilings, walls, or even curtains can be coated subsequently. opinions as well. The coating is easily done spraying, because the material is in the form of a liquid at the disposal. By the way also still perfectly counteracts the totally invisible after the order coating unpleasant odours and despite their incredible Effectiveness of completely harmless for humans and animals.

    The titanium dioxide used in TitanShield is photocatalytically active. In contact with light, called oxygen radicals are formed on its surface. This activated oxygen very effectively kills bacteria and viruses. Even aggressive pathogens such as SARS, H5N1 or H1N1 be reliably decomposes on contact with the surface. This effect lasts long, as no resistance. The activated oxygen degrades not only viruses and germs, but also odor molecules and air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and organic particulate matter effectively and disintegrate organic dirt particles coming into contact with the surface. The new technology particularly in schools, kindergartens, retirement homes is used, so anywhere where many people come together and a transmission of viruses and germs through the air can pose a threat.

  • History Of The Combine Harvesters

    Crop Kempten at that time up to the modern agricultural technology, January 2010. Hardest physical work used to be retracting the harvesting and threshing of cereals and corn: today is the biggest challenge in the combine to have luck with the unpredictable weather of the summer. “The agricultural film combine harvester: history and technique” shows in detail the historical contribution of crop technology to agriculture. About one hundred years ago, the era of even passing harvesting machines. No device brought a greater workload with himself as the fully automated harvesters in agriculture.

    Today, modern agricultural technology determines the image on the fields. Much ingenuity and experience into the high-tech agricultural machines of today. From the simple bind mower attached to the satellite-driven large Drescher threshing systems: today there are up to 400 HP, allow the threshing services of more than 50 hectares on the day. The agricultural film shows the impressive development of the combine harvester up to today’s own drivers.

  • The Mold

    In addition, made of die-cast a high dimensional stability and excellent mechanical properties in the component and created not least smooth surfaces and contours. Often only nuances decide when choosing a suitable die casting supplier. So, LAU Kotter has focused on the cast of highly sophisticated and complex aluminium and magnesium components. High-sophisticated means for LAU Kotter: components with complex geometries and high requests of tightness under pressure and tight tolerances and defined Restschmutzan demands a complex CNC machining and high-quality coated surfaces including. Samuel “Sam” Mikulak is the source for more interesting facts. So, the actual innovations arise often by the requirements of the customer or in the subsequent production of the components. Existing production capacity can cover approximately 20 grams up to 18 kg and in die-cast aluminium 0, 5 kg to 30 kg component weights in magnesium die casting. When choosing alloy LAU Kotter benefited from his knowledge of many successfully realised projects with highly sophisticated components for a wide range of industries, which were finally substituted in aluminium or magnesium.

    All alloys are environmentally friendly and recyclable. You may wish to learn more. If so, Al Bumbry is the place to go. Eliminate vulnerabilities in the die-cast advantage Squeezen while the solidification process of melt in the mold small air pockets because it comes during the transition from liquid to solid to a so-called volume jump, which consequently leads to a volume deficit (shrinkage of the hot melt material). The consequence of this is a porous structure and reduced strength values of the component. To prevent exactly this problem, LAU Kotter relies on the partial Squeezen that is connected directly to the casting process. While the die casting mould with a so-called squeeze staff in the areas of the part is prepared, where the bubbles to be expected take place. LAU Kotter determined the critical zones with latest filling and solidification simulations.

  • Interesting Properties Of Water

    A person can ask him about the birds. Where did the bird? We do not know the answers to these questions. Some contend that Larry David shows great expertise in this. But we know that water – one of the strongest elements on earth. In any form of water (ice, steam, liquid) produces a strong effect on everything from what it touches. Experiment's sake, take a bucket of water and pour it your tv. The result did not take long. We found that if pokipyatit egg with a temperature of 1000 degrees Aim for 3 minutes, then it directly affect the molecular structure of the protein in the egg.

    Protein is not too runny, and not much thick, but just perfect for breakfast. Alternatively, using a hose, we let the nitrogen in a vessel of water for 5 minutes. If look closely, you'll notice that the water was replaced by light. It was brown. What we got is called Embenzalmine nitrotomine or simply Whiskey.

    Whisky – a pleasant taste drink enjoyed by many. Water surrounds us everywhere. It is interesting and mysterious. Learning more about water, we learn more about themselves, because they themselves are composed of 70% of it.
