Glass Reactors Are Used in Chemical Process ¨C Extraction


In recent years, with development of technology, more and more products of plant extract have appeared on the market that contributes more to human health and beauty, for example: plant essential oil, etc. In the manufacture of these plant extracts, the chemical process ¨C extraction is a must. In this article, I will talk about a chemical device ¨C glass reactors which are used in the process of extraction. 

Glass reactor is a type of chemical reaction that always can be used to realize many chemical processes. On today¡¯s market, this reactor always is made from high quality borosilicate glass and has stainless steel structure; this is always appeared to good physical and chemical properties.

In the first paragraph, we have mentioned that glass reactor is used in the process of extraction which is a chemistry is a separation process consisting in the separation of a substance from a matrix. Extraction includes solid phase extraction and liquid- liquid extraction; and common extractants are arranged from ethyl acetate to water in increasing order of polarity. Extraction is widely used in chemical industry and lab study; and typical lab extractions are of organic compounds out of an aqueous phase and into an organic phase.

With increasing technology recently, the extraction also have appeared some modern variations, such as perstraction, instant controlled pressure drop extraction, microwave ¨C assisted extraction, heat reflux extraction, ultrasonic extraction and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction, etc. These extractions are very useful in our daily life, for example: boiling tea leaves in water extracts the caffeine, theobromine and tannins out of the leaves and into the water.

In the last paragraph, we have mentioned that supercritical carbon dioxide extraction is a modern variation, well what is supercritical carbon dioxide. Next, let us talk about this issue. For many of us, we have familiar with carbon dioxide which usually behaves as a gas in air at standard temperature and pressure or as a solid called dry ice when frozen. And a supercritical carbon dioxide is a fluid state of carbon dioxide where it is held at or above its critical temperature and critical pressure and it is becoming an important commercial and industrial solvent because its role in chemical extraction in addition to its low toxicity and environmental impact.

As mention earlier, essential oil is now very popular on the market due to its health benefits, supercritical carbon dioxide just is used as the extraction solvent for creation of essential oils as well as herbal distillates. At the same time, supercritical carbon dioxide is used as extraction solvent in labs, for example: determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soil and solid wastes, determination of hydrocarbon compounds in water, and so on. More importantly, supercritical carbon dioxide is environment ¨C friendly; and it is always used as a chemical reagent due to it is low cost substitutes for rigid thermoplastic and fired ceramic. from www.toption-china.com

In conclusion, glass reactor also can be used other chemical process like stirring, mixing, and dissolution.

Learning The Numbers



Math is an important concept in life, especially if you are a student. There are basic problems to solve in elementary school, and you will work your way to harder problems in Algebra and Geometry later in high school. There are also math classes to take in college. Some assessments can help determine if your child is on the right track in class or if there needs to be additional help given. 

Assessments for younger children often involve basic numbers and whether the child recognizes them, can add and subtract them or knows how to write the numbers. Math manipulatives can be taught in a classroom setting to enhance the skills that the child learns. As children get older, the assessments are harder because the material taught is harder to understand. This is when assessments can determine whether the child needs to be moved to an advanced course or stay in a typical math class. If the child moves to an advanced course, then the work is harder, but it will often look better on a college application, especially if the class offers a college credit once completed and passed. Other assessments given at the end of the school year can determine how much of the course is retained.

Is Unexplained Fertility Really Unexplained?


Women’s health plays an important role in fertility and pregnancy. I often heard and observe this during our office breaks when we talk about our family and kids. I have a friend who wants to get pregnant and she’s doing everything to have a healthy lifestyle to prepare her body for pregnancy. She also knows that age is also a factor to consider, the reason why she should be having her last kid before she gets older. But how can you make pregnancy easier?

Getting pregnant. Seems like the most natural thing in the world, right? Unfortunately, for around 10 percent of all couples, fertility issues make getting pregnant much more difficult than planned. There are so many different things that can affect fertility, from weight, to drinking too much alcohol or smoking cigarettes, to medical conditions or food choices or family histories. Sometimes, fertility issues can be so difficult to pinpoint, that doctors simply diagnose patients with unexplained infertility because they cannot find the true cause.

However, there are many things that couples can do on their own to make getting pregnant easier. According to the experts at www.pregnancytips.org, women can buy all-natural fertility supplements like Conceive Easy to boost their fertility. Losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and exercising can all three go a long way towards improving your chances of getting pregnant. So can quitting smoking, cutting alcohol consumption, and reducing stress in your life.

3 Tips for Hiring Expert Witnesses


Are you headed to court? Could you use the testimony of an expert witness to strengthen your case? They're easier to find than you'd think, but you'll need to carefully sift through your resumes to find someone good enough to put in front of a jury. Here are just three tips for finding, hiring and utilizing an expert witness.

1. Check Their Credentials

First things first: Make sure your witness actually has the background for the job. If they're a doctor, ask to see their medical license; if they're a lawyer themselves, sit down and discuss the details of their J.D. or LL.M. You don't want anything unexpected to rear its ugly head in the middle of a case.

2. Go For A Pro

Some witnesses have been on the stand so many times that they're experts at being experts. Look for people like Michael Richards (MRichardsConsulting.com) who have years of experience in the courtroom and will be able to present a calm, friendly and professional demeanor to the jury.

3. Practice, Practice, Practice

You should know exactly what your witness is going to say under cross-examination. You should be familiar with every twitch and what it says about their mental state. Get a camcorder and film your interrogations together until you're a two-part performance with all the steps down pat.

These are just three things to keep in mind when hiring expert witnesses. The right person can really bolster your case, but the wrong one can seriously hinder it. Make the correct choice the first time.

3 Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Security Alarm


Business owners often take a number of common steps in order to safeguard their properties and reduce their financial risk. If you are like most, you have already invested in a comprehensive insurance policy that covers you for losses related to theft, vandalism and other potential events. You may also have high-end locks, key code access or other features installed. While these steps can be used effectively to minimize your losses, the fact is that your business also can benefit from having a security alarm installed. Regardless of the type of business that you run, there are three reasons why every business may consider the installation of an alarm system.

Deter Criminal Activity
If your property is the target of criminal activity, you may be impacted by damage to your building, loss of inventory or equipment and more. Furthermore, your customers and clients may view your property as being unsafe, and this public image can be difficult to overcome. While insurance may be beneficial at minimizing your financial losses after the fact, you actually want to deter criminal activity when possible. Many criminals will actively seek out alarm systems, such as those from Alarm Relay, before making the decision to target a property. Therefore, an alarm system may be effective at deterring criminals from targeting your property.

Prevent Destruction of Property
Most break-ins and other issues result in the destruction of property in some way. For example, a door frame may get busted or a window may shatter during this type of event. Destruction of property can be fixed, but it does take time and money. Interruption of the flow of business may be a factor to consider until the property damage is repaired. Because an alarm system can deter criminal activity, it can also prevent destruction of property.

Minimize the Risk of Paying an Insurance Deductible
You may have insurance that provides you with compensation for lost income, damage to your property or stolen equipment or inventory. However, you generally will still be responsible for the deductible, and this can be expensive. You can minimize the risk of having to pay an insurance deductible by investing in an alarm system. Keep in mind that you may also qualify for a discount on your insurance policy if you have a monitored alarm system.

If your business does not have an alarm system in place, these are three sound reasons why you may want to consider installation. There are numerous systems available for you to consider, and you can easily find one that is suitable for your needs and your budget.

Flair for Vintage Things

With all the needs for a grand home improvement of our house we really have to save and look for enough finances to carry the renovation. As flooding is now unexpectedly occurring even on stable places we need to secure our home from experiencing flood occurrences. We need to elevate our house a little so we will not be affected by flood if the water level on river and dams rises. 

Our place houses some antique furniture from my father’s creations and we’re just happy that despite the various weather that hit our place those beautiful old furniture remained the same. In a way I love old things – furniture, books, pictures, toys and other things from the past because the things always remind me of my happy childhood. It reminds me of the days when my father still lives and he always create quality wooden furniture as his hobby. 

Well we also have old musical instruments like guitar and our grand piano of middle 40’s which my father bought during American time as he told me. He plays amateur piano and learned it on his own. He loves to own vintage items and as the years go by his instruments became some kind of a vintage collectibles. I go after his flair old things and got excited every time I see MF’s vintage electric guitar which is not only classic but produce quality sounds as well. It’s like returning back to yesterday’s time when my father plays his vintage musical instruments. I missed him so much.

Home Arrangement and Inventory of Musical Instruments

We have so much to do at home during the long weekends and we’re just glad of the planned vacation given by the office. Since the new room of my Mom was built I’ve been spending all my free time tinkering and arranging things in our home as the new room used to be our study room. During one of my busy days at home I came to see some dusty musical instruments used by my kids when they’re younger like the lyre and the old guitar. The lyre is still at its best condition even after several years but the guitar has developed some dents and need to be repaired. 

Anyway with the love my kids have for musical instruments we really have to save some money for buying new instruments. Well musician friends will be of great help when it comes to musical instruments as they have wide choices for the music enthusiasts. Browsing and surfing is such fun for my kids seeing beautiful musical instruments lined up for buying. I wish I can invest on buying some of their products for my kids’ inspiring hobbies.
