Carborundum sentence example
- Wheels of carborundum are also used.
- By means of a rotating table either two surfaces of glass, or one surface of glass and one of cast iron, are rubbed together with the interposition of a powerful abrasive such as sand, emery or carborundum.
- A somewhat impure silicon (containing 90-98% of the element) is made by the Carborundum Company of Niagara Falls (United States Patents 745 122 and 842273, 1908) by heating coke and sand in an electric furnace.
- The product is a crystalline solid of specific gravity 2.34, and melts at about 1430° C. See also German Patent 108817 for the production of crystallized silicon from silica and carborundum.
- For silicon carbide see carborundum.Advertisement
- Many of the furnaces now in constant use depend mainly on this principle, a core of granular carbon fragments stamped together in the direct line between the electrodes, as in Acheson's carborundum furnace, being substituted for the carbon pencils.
- Calcium carbide, graphite, phosphorus and carborundum are now extensively manufactured by the operations outlined above.
- For the theory and elemental laws of electro-deposition see Electrolysis; and for the construction and use of electric generators see Dynamo and Battery: Electric. The importance of the subject may be gauged by the fact that all the aluminium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium carbide, carborundum and artificial graphite, now placed on the market, is made by electrical processes, and that the use of such processes for the refining of copper and silver, and in the manufacture of phosphorus, potassium chlorate and bleach, already pressing very heavily on the older non-electrical systems, is every year extending.
- Acheson, in 1896, patented an application of his, carborundum process to graphite manufacture, and in 1899 the International Acheson Graphite Co.
- The articles are slacked transversely in a furnace, each being packed in granular coke and covered with carborundum.Advertisement
- Engineers and other craftsmen make extensive use of abrasion, effected by the aid of such abrasives as emery and carborundum, in shaping, finishing and polishing their work.
- The production of aluminium in Switzerland and Scotland, carborundum and calcium carbide in the United States, and soda by the Castner-Kellner process, began to be conducted on an immense scale.
- Carborundum was applied by Engels in 1899, firebricks being washed with carborundum paste and then baked.
- Chrissie Hynde, on the other hand, is the sandpaper of the veggie movement, the carborundum stone, the nutmeg grater.
- In addition to the above gaseous rectifiers of oscillations it has been found that several crystals, such as carborundum (carbide of silicon), hessite, anastase and many others possess a unilateral conductivity and enable us to rectify trains of oscillations into continuous currents which can affect a telephone.Advertisement
- The product is a crystalline solid of specific gravity 2.34, and melts at about 1430Ã‚° C. See also German Patent 108817 for the production of crystallized silicon from silica and carborundum.
- Moissanite is a rare mineral with a hexagonal crystal structure that occurs in iron-nickel meteorites and may also be called silicon carbide or carborundum in reference to its chemistry.
- Again, the construction of electric furnaces may often be exceedingly crude and simple; in the carborundum furnace, for example, the outer walls are of loosely piled bricks, and in one type of furnace the charge is simply heaped on the ground around the carbon resistance used for heating, without containing-walls of any kind.
