Saline Water Conversion by Direct Freezing With Butane

Description: Report presenting a study of a plant to produce 10,000,000 gallons per day of fresh water from sea water. The process used is direct freezing brought about by the evaporation of a hydrocarbon refrigerant in contact with sea water, washing the ice free of saline liquor, and melting the ice to potable water by the condensation of butane vapor.

Injury statistics as an aid in preventing accidents in metal and nonmetallic mines

Description: Circular produced by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to promote safety through a series of reports on accident prevention in mines. According the the scope statement, "This first section of the revised series of circulars covers various phases of accident prevention at metal and nonmetallic mines. It presents compilations of statistical data on past accident experience, based on injuries resulting from accidents. This information shows how accident-injury records can be used in planning, executing, and measuring the effectiveness of accident-prevention programs" (p. 2).

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles Progress Report: October-December 1960

Description: From introduction: "This study is concerned with the basic variables that affect the electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols in the submicron range, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, dielectric constant, shape, and initial charge as they relate to rate of charging and therefore to the point of deposition in the classifier."

The Boron-Carbon System: Quarterly Report Number 2, August - October 1960

Description: Abstract: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by X-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. Additional baron-carbon alloys have been prepared by sintering and arc-melting compacts prepared from boron and high-purity graphite. Metallographic examinations of these alloys are in agreement with alloys previously preapred from lampblack. X-ray investigation of sintered compacts indicates that the solubility range of boron carbide extends almost to pure boron. Boron of various purities has been annealed for times up to four hours, but no structure other than beta-rhombohedral has been detected. Very high purity boron (10 ppm impurity) has been obtained for the study of allotropy and the equilibrium relationships at very dilute carbon contents.
