Distillery industry requires particularly close attention to the quality of the components for spirituous beverages production, as well as the quality of glass containers in which they are bottled. The use of modern ultrasound technology allows achieving excellent results in containers cleaning that exceed any quality standards. Therefore, distillery companies can derive juicy benefits from using ultrasound equipment adjusted to particular demands.
Bottle washing machines allow solving one of the most crucial problems in distillery industry – inner surface of glass containers leaching under the influence of alcohol-containing product. This effect occurs because of poor quality glass surface, damaged by incorrect storage of container. Ultrasonic treatment of glass containers in a weak solution of hydrochloric acid at room temperature contributes to a full recovery of the glass surface, if the initial ratio of water resistance does not exceed 0.6 ml of 0.01 N HCl. The quality of the recovered surfaces is confirmed by storing alcoholic solutions for long periods of time under different climatic conditions.
Bottle washing machines – extra advantages
Bottle washing machines are also used for refillable containers cleaning. To remove the salt deposits in the bottle washing machines use acidic solutions, while removing a range of other contaminants implies using alkaline. Implanting ultrasonic cleaning in distillery manufactures contributes to a 100% increase in reusable packaging cleaning and a significant productivity growth.
Ultrasonic Cleaners can significantly intensify the process of extraction, resulting in rapid obtaining of high-quality extracts for the production of alcoholic beverages. An ultrasound effect on the extraction is achieved due to improved hydrodynamic conditions of the process and an increased temperature of the mixture. Another process optimization method lies in ultrasonic modules integration in existing equipment (percolators, extractors and tanks for infusion). Continue reading

Help yourself with a brief manual on essay writing with all the structural parts pointed out. The document is gladly shared by livepaperhelp.com – a seasoned agency that provides custom writing services.
The essay starts from introduction, where the nature and rationale for the selection of the topic is described; the part consists of a number of components associated logically and stylistically. At this stage it is important to formulate a question to which you are going to find the answer.
When working on the introduction answer the following questions: ‘Do I have to give definitions of terms relating to calls made in an essay?’, ‘Why is a topic that I cover is important at the moment?’, ‘What concepts will be involved in my reasoning on theme?’, ‘Can I split a topic into smaller sub-topics?’ For example, when working on the theme of ‘European Post World War Economy’ as a subtopic one can formulate the following question: ‘What are the signs typical of the period for the economy?’ Continue reading
A solid scrap metal dealer is highly likely to buy virtually any kind of scrap metal; however, if you are looking to plunge into the business, undergoing a basic training is obligatory. Let’s start from the very beginning – the definition.
The large class of scrap metals is typically represented by a variety of obsolete metal products, collected for further processing. Scrap metals are subjected to melting procedure, and once this sub-mission is accomplished, the materials enter the manufacturing line iteratively. Generally, scrap metal is characterized by the types of metal it consists of: the predominant material in the overall composition of the scrap plays the decisive role. Furthermore, scrap metal is divided into particular categories in accordance with physical characteristics and chemical composition, the content of carbon or the amount of alloying elements.
Therefore, there are several categories to steel and iron scrap metals (stainless steel, cast iron, etc.), non-ferrous metals (copper scrap and alloys, such as brass, bronze, red brass), aluminum and its alloys, titanium and titanium alloys (ship and aircraft wastes), magnesium scrap (waste aircrafts), lead (batteries, cables); semiconductor scrap (provided by electronics industry); rare scrap metals (alloys provided by high-tech industries).
Precious scrap metal category is comprised of gold, silver and platinum metals. Jewelry, catalysts, batteries, crucibles and chemical apparatus constitute the greater part of precious scrap metals class. Since metal ore is identified as irreplaceable mineral, the idea of recycling and further processing despite of certain financial costs and the need for additional production facilities, is absolutely crucial for both the environment and the economy as a whole.
The nomenclature of test rigs is extensive enough, and, therefore, the equipment line-up is pretty diverse. Virtually all the manufactured products pass a particular control, characterised by various complexity and applied in serial and mass production. More importance is attached to test rigs in individual, pilot and small-scale production and (air tooling in particular).
A normal test cycle can be divided into three stages. The first stage, test preparation, implies defining of the objectives; selecting or designing the required test equipment and its manufacture; measuring equipment selection; products preparation (locations designed to accommodate the equipment revision); preparing technical documentation. The second stage is about actual test, and the third one is processing experimental data and the test results formulation. Continue reading
The symptoms of allergic conditions may be different depending on the type of ailment. Thus, when treating allergies with allopathic methods (that mainly imply using conventional pharmaceutical medications), the attention is primarily directed at the presenting symptoms: dermatitis (eczema, itching, redness, etc.), allergic rhinitis (runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes) and etc.
Alternative therapies, mainly deprived of undesired side effects, provide a brilliant opportunity of using drugs for each symptom or treating the body as a whole (more typical of homeopathic approaches).
Thus, Cardiospermum plant, according to UK Natural Health Hub is considered to be one of the most powerful natural remedies for hayfever, which is used in homeopathy for diseases of the skin, reducing itching and dealing with eczema effectively. Being a natural preparation, the remedy has no side effects. Continue reading
The process of bitcoin mining is inevitably accompanied by complex calculations on computers within a single network. The main burden lies on the so-called ‘pools for mining’, where participants extract coins and divide the plunder among those who participated in the affair. However, if any of these pools will grow to 51% of the computing capacity of the network, it will be able to capture the main chain units and turn the main chain into the private one.
It’s only been a few years since the advent of digital cryptocurrency – and it may seem that the threat begins to be implemented. Over the past four days, the largest mining pool GHash.IO controlled 36% of network computing resources, which is close to the critical values (the fact should be underlined that their share exceeded 40% in January).
In connection with the situation, GHash.IO representatives issued a press release with a promise not to carry out a 51% attack. Being extremely polite and correct, the authorities pointed out that such attack will cause damage to the entire Bitcoin infrastructure and call into question the reliability of the digital currency as a universal payment method.
GHash.IO managed to become the largest pool thanks to zero fees when calculating the remuneration, round the clock technical support, nice visualization, real-time statistics, as well as the combined production of alternative cryptocurrencies – a side income that doesn’t affect the performance of Bitcoin mining. Currently, 45% of the computing power in the pool is represented by BitFury ASIC farms, and 55% by independent miners.
After GHash.IO share exceeded 40%, the administration has taken a number of measures to reduce the computing power.
The result of the effort was the temporary registration suspension of new members of the pool. The management of the establishment initiated the development to grant CEX.IO participants an opportunity to cooperate with other pools. Thus, if customers purchase computing power from CEX.IO, they will be able to work under another guise. The measures taken have already given effect: in the past two days GHash.IO share fell to 34 %, and in the last 24 hours – up to 30 %.
Ahhh, Moleskines. When it comes to creatively-minded people, they are viewed right up there with Apple Macs and Starbucks. I’ve been using my own Moleskine notebook (thoughtfully bought for me by my wife to shut me up) for the last couple of months to doodle down thoughts and catch all my random ideas. What makes it so great is that it feels so sturdy and solid, and that makes it ideal for hacking and tweaking (try adding tabs or a pen holder to a normal notepad and it will probably fall apart). In short, it’s a quality tool for freelancers, entrepreneurs and productivity fans who like the lo-fi approach.
NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month, is a great idea. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel throughout November, and the website offers help, forums, tips and encouragement to help you (over 200,000 people participated in 2010). The reason I like the idea of NaNoWriMo is it encourages people to approach the challenge of book writing by breaking it down into bitesize chunks – one of my favorite productivity tips. 50,000 words in a month sounds like a lot, but 1500+ words a day for 30 days is a whole different proposition.
In this age of instant access information, always available entertainment and bottom line obsessed business our time, energy and focus is always at a premium. It seems to be a common and accepted part of life that we need to multitask to keep on top of it all. The only problem is we aren’t actually very good at it…
This month it emerged that in the UK, a staggering eight billion pounds worth of food goes to waste, which equates to 6.7 million tonnes or a third of our total purchases. Those are scary stats that are echoed in many other countries around the world. This effects us two ways. Firstly, with food prices rising dramatically at the moment, it’s a very good idea to start looking at whether we can be more efficient with what we eat, thus wasting less and saving money. Secondly, all that wasted food typically ends up on landfills thus producing the greenhouse gas methane, on top of all the damage the excess packaging and transporting causes. It’s with all this in mind that I’ve compiled an introductory list of habits you can develop in your life that will help you to stop wasting food so as to save money and be environmentally friendly.

Blasthemy! I hope the productivians don’t strike me down 😉 Here is my list of issues with GTD that I have picked out. These are a mix of my own and other’s experiences that were shared in a previous post asking the readers what they disliked. This is meant as a one-sided critique and as such is not strictly representative of my true feelings. If you disagree with any points please do share your thoughts. Also, be sure to suggest any points I may have missed.
- The circumstances in which an event occurs; a setting.
- That which surrounds, and gives meaning to, something else.
GTD encourages the use of contexts to break down long and expansive to-do lists. Without them where would you start? What would you choose to do at any particular time? By breaking down your lists according to different settings and situations, it becomes a simple matter of selecting a list and tasks appropriate to your current context. For instance, if you are near a phone, you only need look at those next actions that require you to make a phonecall.
An extra benefit of contexts is that it it stops you from being distracted by next actions that are not relevant to your current circumstances. For instance, you don’t have to look at any tasks that are to do at home when you are at work. This is known as contextual limitation as it stops your attention being taken up by work you can’t do at that time.
Contexts can be as simple or as complicated as required depending on the actual depth and size of your to-do lists. Traditionally, the author of GTD, David Allen, puts a @ symbol in front of all contexts, and while this is not a requirement, it has become the common defining symbol for them. The symbol means location as in “Where are you at?”. Thus, @computer means “At your computer”.
I’ve been away for over a week on holiday hence the lack of posts recently. As is typical after time away, I’m now trying to catch up with things. One of the first things I did when I got back home was to get up to date with my favorite sites (I have quite a few productivity blogs bookmarked on my Delicious account so it certainly took a while). As I was doing it, I got to thinking about which of these sites really stood out for me and provided top content on a regular basis. In an attempt to answer this I’ve come up with my personal top ten productivity blogs list. Bear in mind, it’s by no means definitive. There are so many sites out there that I could quite easily change my mind tomorow. However, I hope you find it useful.
