We had a steel side & an Alum side to the plant
They had water quenches, oil quenches & the deep freeze
They had one load on the Alum side (bakelite ? Alum/Magnesium mix ?) that the Customer requested too high a temp & it caught fire

They tossed it in the quench tank & it was still burning underwater
Sorry IHad a almost really bad experience with Magneisum dust I sat on fire one time. Thankfully I was able to kill the oxygen to it quickly. Would have been a real disaster. Would have looked like this You cant put it out any way I know of except smothering.

talk about bringing back old memories.

that was part of our fireworks display at home. Take a 5 gal bucket of magnesium shavings and set them on fire.

It gets real exciting when the (know-it-all) firemen figured it would be a good idea to put it out with water.

kind of like the quick shot here but imagine a fire hose spraying water instead of the litttle squirt.



btw: you NEVER put water on a mag fire. Sand if it is small or running if it is big is the proper action.

You overlooked the fact that they are selling for less than $148! That was the list price. Your price is twenty-eight cents less than that, a mere $147.72!!

Love the concept. Tossing solid sodium in plain water can always be fun too.



This $148 outlet idea with gold contacts is so funny though. And I know cryogenics from work in the semiconductor industry. Bet you the cost of one of these outlets it makes no difference over the the whosale ones I plan to stick in walls on a project today. I think to reduce audio noise I will see if I can find 12/2 gold wire romex though.

:h.
did you ever see the episode of Brainiac about alkali metals>

the last one they wet is cesium but if you pay attention, the guy states there is one more metal that is more reactive (francium) but they wouldn't let them have any of that.

Ok I am in the business of Cryogenic Processing but these guys are crazy!
Some of the comments are off the wall = free HBO, Perpetual power, ect.

Cryo processing will decrease electrical resistance making wires more efficient and music clearer but these claims are ridiculous.

The way cryo processing is used in audio applications is usually in the speaker wire, RCA cables, and circuitry. One of the benefits of cryo processing is the realignment of the molecular structure to an even and aligned composition. It makes sense for electrons to flow easier down an line of molecules rather than a random molecular pattern. Also "noise" can come from the solder points in the circuitry. Cryo processing can fix that as well by again, giving it aligned molecules to flow down and relieving the residual stresses in the solder. Another thing I think is ridiculous about this is the price $100 or more for a receptacle is crazy. I process items like this for $10-20. You could buy a regular GFCI receptacle and cryo process the conductors and get as good of a product as this.
