One interesting development has come out of Germany in this regard, which uses lasers in place of furnaces in drying the slurries
that are part of producing batteries.
Copper Barrier Slurries
Offer Device Makers Erosion Improvement and Reduced Defects
Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature its advanced copper barrier slurries
for the electronics industry at the International Conference on Planarization Technology (ICPT), being held at the Wild Pass Horse Hotel & Casino in Chandler, Ariz.
Essentially, the use of surimi slurries
can help reduce fat uptake significantly in fried seafood.
Agricultural manure slurries
are a significant source of nutrients and faecal microbes, and therefore pose a high risk to surface water quality, particularly in dairy-farming systems with confinement of large animals.
The non-nuclear density meter, Sciam DM3, incorporates continuous bi-directional, in-line density measurement of slurries
in pipes up to 40 in.
Public Health Wales has also advised that health factors associated with such slurries
tend to be "negligible".
Typical applications include dredging, cleaning of settling ponds, coal and ore slurries
, quarries, mines and many other industries.
However, when freeze casting aqueous alumina slurries
in bulk the addition of small amounts of glycerol to the slurry mix serves as a cryoprotectant, effectively disrupting the crystalline behaviour of water contained in the slurry (Sofie and Dogan, 2001).
BASF Coatings has obtained a patent for a process for preparing powder slurry of a particular shade, comprised of mixing a powder slurry or slurries
selected from the group consisting of color powder slurries
of achromatic shade and clearcoat powder slurries
with at least one aqueous, color- or effect-imparting tinting paste.
Biomass yields of oil seed radish, oriental mustard, annual ryegrass, cereal rye, oats, wheat, forage rape, and forage turnips sown in untilled wheat and corn silage stubble with swine, dairy, and beef slurries
from 2004 through 2006 were equal to or greater than a conventional seeding.
Much of Signicast's leadtime comes from dipping the wax pattern trees into the ceramic slurries
to form investment molds.
