Celox Oxygen Activity probe

Readers of my recent post:

"Optimizing deoxidation and desuIphurization during vacuum induction melting of alloy 718"

full paper free to members of IOM3,UK is now online and freely available to members of IOM3.

Readers new to Superalloys and steel cleanness via Sulphur & Oxygen removal may also wish to read about Oxygen Activity Mesurement probes. The one I am particularily familiar with is the Celox Oxygen Activity probe. In many ways our/my introduction and systematic use of the Celox probe in the production process, undoubtably added credibility to the companies product,

The Celox Oxygen Activity Measurement Probe

Comments or requests for information on Oxygen Activity Measurement  and related are most welcome.

Cheers & Enjoy

CRITICAL -STRATEGIC MATERIAL ISSUES ADDRESSED: Critical Materials Institute announces partnership with Rio Tinto from EurekAlert! Sci News


Critical Materials Institute announces partnership with Rio Tinto "

The Critical Materials Institute (CMI) & Rio Tinto, a mining and metals company.

"The Critical Materials Institute (CMI) - a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub led by the Ames Laboratory - announced today an important new research initiative in partnership with Rio Tinto, a mining and metals company. The new initiative aims to ensure that the United States fully leverages domestic mineral and metal resources necessary for global leadership in clean energy manufacturing.
The Rio Tinto-CMI research partnership will combine Rio Tinto's operational expertise with CMI's research capabilities, materials science expertise and computing power. Focused on the efficient extraction of critical materials from the copper smelting process, the research will have three core work-streams:
1. Improving recovery rates of critical minerals and metals (rhenium, selenium, tellurium, scandium, etc.) from samples sourced from Rio Tinto's operating Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah and the Resolution Copper project currently under regulatory review and permitting in Arizona.
2. Exploring potential for increasing recovery rates of rare minerals and metals through processing waste tailings.
3. Examining process improvements that would facilitate the blending of processed electronic waste ('e-waste') with copper concentrates to substantially increase the recovery of valuable metals such as gold, copper, silver, platinum, lithium and rare earths present in spent cellphones, computers and solar panels.

Brexit Resource Centre Free access to research, data and analysis

The above  "Brexit Resource Centre with Free access to research, data and analysis " was published By the Elsevier Community, on 28 September 2016 . and is a most innovative and informative presentation of the excellent progress of UK research with UK as part of the EU.

Three cheers for informative decision making - by....ALL .

I chose this collourful presentation of social media statistics from 8 statistical graphs.

Top influencers on social media per Talkwalker

Please Gen-up folks.

The  "Elsevier Community" Free access Brexit Resource Centre website is very well documented with about 30or more web-active information reference links.
