Fruit Juicer Atomic Structure

A fruit juicer uses various scientific principles to ensure the juice has no fiber, it is clean and smooth. The manufacturers of Kuvings Silent Juicer Series, for example, use creativity and innovation at the same time add a touch of beauty to the fruit juicers to maintain customer loyalty.

The principle works based on the source of power, for example, a manual juicer has a slow functionality and is bound to be noisy compared to an electric juicer which is motor powered hence the noise. In some cases, the designers install silencers in the motor to come up with silent series to dictate a certain percentage of the market share.

Why are some juices thick while other are more liquid? The answer lies in the extraction capacity of the juicer. There is a difference between a blender and a juice extractor. A blender squeezes the liquid content of the fruits and vegetables and allows the mixture into a glass, hence the thick juice while a juice extractor is only interested in the liquid content of a juicer. This means it sieves the semi-liquid content in a separate jar while it directs the clear liquid in a glass for consumption.

The type of material also has an effect on the juicing duration and the quality of the juice. A metallic crusher can handle both the smooth and hard vegetables like carrots and nuts while the plastic crusher can only handle smooth fruits and vegetables, so ensure you learn the type of juicer you have. If you overwork it yet it is not designed for it, then be sure you will reduce its durability.

The size and the number of the crushing plates also have an effect on the overall appearance of the juice extract. Ensure you choose a juicer with more crusher plates to increase its functionality, the smaller the crushing plates the slower the juicing and the larger the crushed pieces.

Let the purpose of the juicer be a guiding principle on the choice of the juicer. The manufacturers’ instructions may not give you the right information, remember they are in business. Online reviews or social media pages of the manufacturers will give you unbiased information. A juicer for small juicing needs may not sustain juicing in a commercial enterprise. The power size is a great determining factor to know the difference.

Which fruits or vegetables would you wish your juicer to handle? There is no economic sense of having a juicer with limited functions, or two juicers to handle either soft or hard fruits or vegetables. Choose a juicer that can handle multiple functions, it saves you on kitchen space and money. The single functionality juicer might look cheaper but when you see the value of the multiple function juicer it is economical.

The demand for fruit juicers in recent future might exceed the supply, although entrepreneurs work around the clock to balance the phenomenon by producing juicers efficient for both the low-end and the high-end market. The phenomenon is contributed by massive awareness of clean and healthy eating.

The Problem with the Electric Car

Electric Vehicles- Too Good to be True?

In recent months Nissan has begun effective marketing of their new Zero-Emissions vehicle the Leaf. According to the Nissan website, Zero-emissions are eco-friendly vehicles, such as Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Fuel-Cell Vehicles (FCVs) that have no tailpipe emissions of CO2 or other gases. The idea is that you can charge the vehicle’s electric battery at home or at designated charging stations and have absolutely no carbon emissions, or at least that is what the advertising might lead one to believe. Sounds pretty great but there is one major problem that the media and public don’t seem to notice. Electricity is not intrinsically carbon-free. In fact, electricity production is the single largest emitter of CO2 in the United States according to the EPAs report on Climate Change.

I have often wondered why culturally, the idea of electricity is not associated with large carbon emissions? I think it probably has something to do with the big bucks spent by the Coal Industry on advertising, but regardless, I would like to think that as Americans we are smart enough to recognize their deceit.  And Coal is exactly what is fueling the new Nissan Leaf, and other hybrids and Fuel-Cell Vehicles. Essentially cars like the Leaf are just deferring their CO2 emissions to another fossil fuel.

I see this issue as tangible evidence of the lack of general understanding of energy production and consumption. I agree that electricity is good. I like having lights, heat, hospitals, schools, computers, and cars. However, we must be more critical of where our electricity is coming from and drop the assumption that electric=clean. This new generation of electric vehicles could be a great thing, but it depends on a large scale shift to a clean energy source: nuclear energy.

Building Tomorrow’s Work Force by Sharing a Piece of Nuclear History

PopAtomic Studios in partnership with the Michael Krupinski Memorial Foundation launched an exciting new fund-raising project this past week in Amelia Island at the 22nd Annual Waste Management and Clean-Up Decision Makers Forum. We unveiled these custom made sculptures displaying graphite salvaged from the very first man-made sustained nuclear reaction at Stagg Field in Chicago on December 2, 1942.

These little pieces of history are available for a charitable donation ranging from $200 to $500 and the proceeds from the sculptures is going to the Michael Krupinski Memorial Foundation (MKMF). MKMF is an effort to expand the pipeline of students entering the engineering field to support the growth of the nuclear industry’s workforce. They do this through real-time interactive reactor lab sessions that are done live via the internet using cameras in classrooms across America. We encourage you to learn more about their work and share this exciting project with anyone who might be interested in supporting this important cause.

You can see in the drawing of the Chicago Pile 1 that this graphite moderator was stacked with the Uranium in the first nuclear reaction, calculated and overseen by Enrico Fermi himself. This is such an incredible part of human history and we include a booklet with the complete history of CP-1 as well as a certificate of authenticity with each sculpture order.

There is a limited supply of this historical graphite, however, I wanted to open up this opportunity to supporters of PopAtomic since our readers tend to be good Samaritans and champions of education. We are very excited to contribute to the growth of the MKMFs outreach efforts and consider them a close ally in our efforts to cultivate a better public understanding of nuclear energy.

If you are interested in having your own piece of history and supporting the growth of America’s nuclear workforce please contact us via email for an order form for your custom sculpture: radioactiveart@popatomic.org.

The Beginning of my Nuclear Education

In 1999, during a lesson about energy and ecology in my high school Biology class (in Atlanta) I was taught that nuclear energy was intrinsically dangerous and hazardous to the environment. I went home that day incredibly upset and confronted my Dad, a Nuclear Engineer, about all of the horrible things he had been doing at work and voiced my disappointment in his choice of career. My Dad didnt say anything, he just listened. The next day he went to Georgia Tech and borrowed a Geiger Counter. When I came home from school that afternoon, he had assembled a number of everyday items on the kitchen table. He explained that radiation is all around us and showed me that some things in our home have measureable amounts of radioactivity. I remember one item was a lantern mantel (which contained thorium at that time), which pegged the meter. He asked if I would like to go and investigate a nuclear power plant so that I could report back to my class with more information about nuclear energy and radiation.

That weekend we drove up to the Oconee Power Station in South Carolina, Geiger Counter in hand, to measure the radiation levels at the plant. During the drive, my Dad discussed all the measures that utilities take to protect workers, the public, and the environment from the radiation inside the reactor.  He told me about the r-squared effect, and that I could expect to find the highest radiation measurements nearest the containment building, and it would decline exponentially the further away we went.

This was before the September 11th attacks, and I was able to get really close to the structures, and my research was enthusiastically supported by the staff at the Oconee Power Station (they have a great Visitors Center if you ever have a chance to visit). We took readings at three distances starting near the containment building, then moving outward. We did the same thing at the spent fuel storage facility. The measurements were really, really low near the facilities and declined rapidly as we moved away from each building.  On the closest public road to site, the radiation level was the same as the background reading far from the site.
