Who Wants A Science Lesson In Hydrogen?

Posted by Therser UK on 13-Jan-2023 09:22:34
Find below a break down of Hydrogen's different forms,

H = Atomic Hydrogen
Atomic hydrogen is number 1 on the Periodic Table of Elements. It consists of one proton and one unpaired electron which means that it is a free radical.
However an atom of hydrogen rarely exists on its own because its unpaired electron eagerly seeks to join up with another electron.
The molecular form of hydrogen is more common.
H2 is a gas which forms when two hydrogen atoms bond together and become a hydrogen molecule. H2 is also called molecular, it consists of two protons and two electrons. Consequently it is the most common form of Hydrogen because it is stable with a neutral charge. H2 is not a free radical. It is the antioxidant in ‘hydrogen-rich’ water.
H2 is the smallest molecule in the universe. That means it can go where nothing else can …including into your mitochondria which are the powerhouses of your cells.

H+ = Proton
When the Hydrogen atom loses an electron all that is left is a proton. It becomes the positively charged hydrogen ion known as H+. This is the form of Hydrogen that produces the ATP enzyme that powers our cells and mitochondria.
The H+ hydrogen ion is the basis of the pH scale.

H: – = Hydride
Hydride is a hydrogen atom which has an extra electron. This means that it is a negatively charged ion, or anion. That is why Hydride ion (H-) has the minus sign distinguishing it from a regular Hydrogen atom (H). The two dots after the H means that this ion has two electrons instead of just one. The extra electron means that H- is not a free radical however it is not stable because this form of hydrogen is a very strong base (extremely alkaline) which reacts with water to produce hydroxide (OH–and molecular hydrogen (H2).
OH– = Hydroxide ion

H3O+ = Hydronium ion
A water molecule (H20) plus a hydrogen ion (H+) becomes a hydronium ion (H3O+). The H+ ion is a lone proton with a powerful charge. It does not exist on its own in an aqueous solution because it is immediately attracted to the unshared electrons in the oxygen atom of H2O. The result is Hydronium (H3O+). This process is reversible. Two water molecules can disassociate to form hydronium plus hydroxide.

pH stands for potential of Hydrogen and is actually a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution. Water breaks down (dissociates) into protons (H+) and hydroxides (OH–). This reaction is reversible.

2H2O ⇆ OH– and H3O+
pH indicates whether water is acidic, neutral, or alkaline. More H+ = more acidic. Less H+ = more alkaline.
Because H+ immediately associates with H2O to form H3O+ (Hydronium), pH can also be said to be a measurement of the concentration of H3O+ in a solution.

What Is An Afterburner?

Posted by Therser Sales Team on 20-Dec-2022 10:09:08

A kiln or furnace afterburner is a device that is used to burn off and eliminate pollutants and harmful emissions from the exhaust of a kiln, which is a high-temperature oven or furnace used in a variety of industrial and manufacturing processes. Kilns and furnaces are used to produce a vast range of products, including cement, ceramics, glass, bricks and other materials, and they can generate large amounts of pollutants such as particulate matter, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

What Is An Electric Kiln?

Posted by Therser UK on 20-Dec-2022 08:59:36

An electric kiln is a specialised type of oven that is used for ceramics, pottery, metal and other applications that need high temperatures. It is used to heat materials to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time in order to change their physical properties, this is known as its 'Firing Cycle' such as to dry out wet clay or to harden ceramics. Electric kilns use electricity as their source of heat and are typically equipped with a digital control panel , the control panel is known as a PLC Programable Logic Controller, this allows the user to set the temperature and timing for the firing process. Therser UK can provided these in a smaller scale for use in ceramic studios, schools, and other settings where ceramics and pottery are made. We also provided industrial sized electric kilns, these will be be used for making ware on a much larger scale, the ware will used in hotels, hospitals etc.

How Does an Industrial Kiln Work?

Posted by Therser Sales Team on 13-Dec-2022 11:58:49

Kiln technology originated in ancient times, and its development from earthen trenches filled with fuel and items to be fired, up until the present day, happened in stages over thousands of years. The first kilns were recorded in use around 6000 BC, but it was the Chinese who appear to have been the furthest ahead in their technologies, and had developed kilns capable of firing at 1000 °C before the year 2000 BC.
