Experts recommended grounding the tanks because it would protect them from lightning strikes and static electricity (Meyer, 2010). In addition, experts also recommended storing only noncombustible materials in tanks that were painted with products that contained aluminum powder because aluminum powder is a pyrophoric material (Meyer, 2010). Naturally the hazardous condition would be virtually eliminated by only storing noncombustible materials in the tanks. According to Meyer (2010) once the solvent in the coating has evaporated what remains of the paint should be considered a flammable and in the case of aluminum dust remnants, pyrophoric as stated above. Using paint consisting of aluminum already creates a risk of fire and explosion. Add to that an ignition source and a tank full of combustibles, and one could see to what extent that would add to an already hazardous situation (Meyer, 2010).
Titanium much like other metal such as aluminum is not hazardous in bulk form. However, as in the case of aluminum, it becomes a pyrophoric material in its finely divided form. Through the fabrication process of metals, remnants of leftover titanium are considered pyrophoric and pose a significant risk of fire and explosion (Meyer, 2010). During the production process titanium remnants have the potential to react with atmospheric moister and cause the hydrogen to combust and can self-ignite (Meyer, 2010). The Use of automatic sprinkler systems can be an effective fire suppressant due to the ability of the system to effectively cool the metal and stop the spread of the fire (Meyer,…...

...Bottom paints and bottom paints for boats Bottom paint is a covering applied to the lowermost point of a ship (hull) so as to get rid of growing organisms that may attach to the boat especially at the lower parts or to protect the metallic parts of the hull from corrosion. This is done to enhance the vessel's performance and sturdiness. Another added advantage is the improved contact between a free flow mass of water and the hull of a speedy boat enabling the boat to sail at a much faster speed. Modern bottom paints are composed of biocides (chemical substance that hamper growth of marine organisms), organotin compounds and lethal copper. Types of bottom paints SPC (Self polishing copolymers). It contains a resin known as SPC Copolymer. The chemical substance reacts with salt water and the result is the discharge of biocides in the entire life span of the bottom paint. The reaction takes place at any circumstance provided the vessel is in contact with salt water. Controlled Solubility Copolymers These types of bottom paints are partly soluble in water meaning it wears down when water passes across the exterior of the paint. The thickness of the paint reduces at a controlled pace resulting in the release of fresh biocide at the surface of the paint during its active working period. Ablative bottom paints A type of bottom paint that wears away with time when in use hence reducing the preparation and preservation needed when applying more bottom......

He Aluminum Industry in 1994

...The Aluminum Industry in 19941  and  Aluminum Smelting in South Africa: Alusaf’s Hillside Project2  1) Is primary aluminum production an attractive industry? Why or why not?  Within the framework of the Structure-Conduct-Performance (SCP) model3, the primary aluminum production industry (“the industry”) in 1994 can be described as perfectly competitive. The industry is characterized by a large number of competing firms – the largest of which has only 4.1% of total industry capacity; homogeneous, commodity-type products and low-cost entry and exit into and out of the industry (assuming capital is available where returns are greater than cost of entry). Within the industry, market prices are established via a commodities exchange (the London Metal Exchange, or LME) and individual firms have little ability to set market prices. In a perfectly competitive industry social welfare is maximized – due largely to the lack of product differentiation and the number of competitors, while expected firm performance is normal.  In the early 1990’s the collapse of the Soviet military caused Russian and other Soviet State smelters to flood the market with capacity that had previously supplied military needs. During 1993, LME inventories of primary aluminum increased by nearly a million tons, to over 2.5 million tons, while producer inventories increased by over 300,000 tons. This surge in supply & inventory levels drove world aluminum prices to all-time lows - $1,110/ton at the......

Many people find the task of choosing the best paint colors for their home very daunting. If you belong to this group here are some tips that could help to make your task easier: 1.

For a sophisticated and exciting look use dramatic colors such as red or orange. Purple gives the room a romantic mood. 2. Borrow ideas from your neighbors. When choosing a color for your exteriors it is important to take into consideration the color of your neighbors' houses. You can go for uniformity or uniqueness. If you choose to make your house conspicuous ensure it doesn't clash with those of neighbors but it is also important to ensure that it is not an exact copy of a neighbor's paintwork. 3. When painting a room factor in the age of the occupant of that room.

Aluminum in South Africa

...Aluminum Assignment 2. We predict in the next several years that the primary aluminum demand will increase, but at a slower rate that it has been historically. * We predict a temporary increase in aluminum pricing due to production restrictions imposed by CIS and US producers beginning in 1994. However, the price reduction will be temporary, as the LME warehouses have inventory at historic highs of 2.5 thousand tons of aluminum, which could be sold at any time. Furthermore, the US has agreed to temporarily idle production of 950 thousand tons of aluminum in an attempt to inflate prices. However, this is a short term solution, as production cannot be idled for a long period of time without severe damage to the aluminum production line. * The consumption of aluminum by the Western world has increased over the last 5 years, but at a much slower rate than in the past 10 years. Additionally, the secondary aluminum market has been increasing, and serves as competition for the primary aluminum market. By 1994, the secondary aluminum made up 25% of worldwide product and saw a 5 year CAGR of 3.7%, while the CAGR for primary aluminum had decreased to a rate of 1.4% worldwide. The startup cost for a secondary aluminum plant is far lower than that of a primary aluminum plant. The operational cost of the secondary aluminum plant is far lower than that of a primary aluminum plant, requiring about 5% of the energy needed to operate a primary aluminum plant. As a result, there will...

Clark Paints

...Clark Paints: The production department has been investigating possible ways to trim total production costs. One possibility currently being examined is to make the paint cans instead of purchasing them. The equipment needed would cost $200,000 with a disposal value of $40,000 and would be able to produce 5,500,000 cans over the life of the machinery. The production department estimates that approximately 1,100,000 cans would be needed for each of the next five years. The company would hire three new employees. These three individuals would be full-time employees working 2,000 hours per year and earning $12.00 per hour. They would also receive the same benefits as other production employees, 18% of wages in addition to $2,500 of health benefits. It is estimated that the raw materials will cost 25¢ per can and that other variable costs would be 5¢ per can. Since there is currently unused space in the factory, no additional fixed costs would be incurred if this proposal is accepted. It is expected that cans would cost 45¢ per can if purchased from the current supplier. The company's minimum rate of return (hurdle rate) has been determined to be 12% for all new projects, and the current tax rate of 35% is anticipated to remain unchanged. The pricing for a gallon of paint as well as number of units sold will not be affected by this decision. The unit-of-production depreciation method would be used if the new equipment is purchased.

Lme Aluminum

...Alusaf Hillside Project 1. Is primary aluminum production an attractive industry? Why or why not? I consider primary aluminum production is not an attractive industry because : a. The product is identical (ie, aluminum), all the companies procure the same resources to make production with same production line and process. The firms only differentiate in terms of controlling and lowering the variable cost in order to make a profit as a price-takers. Pricing is somehow fix in global level as aluminum is openly traded in the financial market. b. Intensive rivalry and perfect competition. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union and Russia and the other former Soviet states surged the supply and flooded world markets while having price remains historical low in 1993. 2. At the market price of $1,110 per ton, given the supply curve you have derived, how much would be supplied under the assumption that all plants are profit maximizers? If all plants are profit maximizers, the capacity will be landed at where average variable cost = price, ie, $1,110. From the industry 1993 supply curve, the capacity at 19,412 thousands tpy when variable cost close to $1,110 (to be exact at $1,108.02). 3. At what rate do you expect primary aluminum demand to grow over the coming years (note that primary aluminum demand is total demand less scrap production)? What do you expect the price of aluminum to be in 5 years from 1993? From the industry supply curve, the......

Paint Factory Workings

...A paint is composed of pigments, solvents, resins, and various additives. The pigments give the paint color; solvents make it easier to apply; resins help it dry; and additives serve as everything from fillers to antifungicidal agents. Hundreds of different pigments, both natural and synthetic, exist. The basic white pigment is titanium dioxide, selected for its excellent concealing properties, and black pigment is commonly made from carbon black. Other pigments used to make paint include iron oxide and cadmium sulfide for reds, metallic salts for yellows and oranges, and iron blue and chrome yellows for blues and greens. Solvents are various low viscosity, volatile liquids. They include petroleum mineral spirits and aromatic solvents such as benzol, alcohols, esters, ketones, and acetone. The natural resins most commonly used are lin-seed, coconut, and soybean oil, while alkyds, acrylics, epoxies, and polyurethanes number among the most popular synthetic resins. Additives serve many purposes. Some, like calcium carbonate and aluminum silicate, are simply fillers that give the paint body and substance without changing its properties. Other additives produce certain desired characteristics in paint, such as the thixotropic agents that give paint its smooth texture, driers, anti-settling agents, anti-skinning agents, defoamers, and a host of others that enable paint to cover well and last long. Manufacturing process The manufacturing process involves five critical......

Claytons Paint

...Page 1 of 3 CASE STUDY – CLAYTON’S PAINTS Three years ago a new, North American CEO was appointed at Clayton’s Paints. He promptly set about changing the way the longstanding Australian company produced paint, his aim being to make Clayton’s Paints more responsive to the needs of its customers and to gain a competitive edge over its rivals in terms of both price and quality. The new CEO decided that Clayton’s Paints needed to establish what he called Customer First Teams (CFTs). He was convinced that the formation of CFTs would improve Clayton’s paint-production processes, and moved to restructure the existing workforce and production lines accordingly. The CFTs were established by middle management, with members selected on the basis of their technical ability. Members varied from recent hires to longserving employees, from three days experience to 30 years. CFT leaders were also selected by middle management. At first the CFTs seemed to very successful: the average time it took to produce a batch of paint reduced from 155 to about 56 hours. It was soon noticed, however, that the computer-based figures that the accountants were relying on seemed to be unreliable – some employees appeared to be unwilling to use the new computerised batch-logging system properly. Repeated efforts to encourage the logging of data by employees into the computers failed. Other problems also soon emerged. The new CEO was innovative, dynamic and a good communicator.

Aluminum

...Aluminum Aluminum is a silvery white member of boron group of chemical elements. It has Al as a symbol, and its atomic number is 13. Aluminum is not soluble in water under normal circumstances. Aluminum considered as the third most abundant element, and the most abundant metal. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface. Aluminum metal is a very reactive metal .It is found combined in 270 different minerals. Aluminum History In 1761, Guyton de Morveau suggested calling the base alum alumina. In 1808, Humphry Davy identifies the existence of a metal base of alum. The metal was first produced in 1825 in an impure form by physicist and chemist Hans Christian Ørsted. He react anhydrous aluminum chloride with potassium amalgam, yielding a lump of metal looking similar to tin. Friedrich Wöhler was aware of these experiments and cited them, but after redoing the experiments of Ørsted he concluded that the metal was pure potassium. He conducted a similar experiment in 1827 by mixing anhydrous aluminum chloride with potassium and yielded aluminum. Aluminum Characteristics There are many characteristics of aluminum, and here i will talk about two types of aluminum characteristics:- 1- Physical characteristics: Aluminum is a soft, durable, lightweight, and malleable metal with appearance ranging from silvery to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness. A fresh film of aluminum film serves as a good of visible light and an excellent reflector......
