MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Propane is one of the safest forms of energy for your home or business. According to John McCormack, Superior Propane's National Technical Specialist, "In extremely cold conditions, especially nearing -40 C, there may not be enough vapour pressure in your tank to keep your appliance working properly. Some people believe the propane in their tank has "gelled", but what is really happening is that the liquid propane isn't boiling as vigorously...

Plasma-assisted combustion could help make jets fly higher, faster and longer, according to work presented at APS Division of Fluid Dynamics Meeting Mix together air, fuel, and heat and you get combustion, the chemical reaction that powers most engines in planes, trains and automobiles. And if you throw in some ionized gas (plasma), it turns out, you can sustain combustion even in conditions that would otherwise snuff out the reaction: at low air pressure, in high winds or when there's low...

NASA Researchers build on the work of those who have gone before. New experiments intersect with published research; current investigations expand the scope of earlier work; new tests verify and challenge old results. And so it goes with all research, including microgravity flame studies. NASA engineers, academic researchers and scientists of all stripes have built on past experiments and findings to understand the fundamentals of combustion, fire sensing and fire suppression both on...

[ Watch the video "Strange Flames On The International Space Station" ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) analyzed the behavior of flames in space, including how and why they form little "spheres." Thousands of chemical reactions take place simultaneously within a flame. Hydrocrabon molecules from the wick are vaporized and cracked apart by heat, and they combine with oxygen to produce light, heat, carbon...

2013-07-18 10:48:37

The flame skimmer (Libellula saturate), also known as the firecracker skimmer, is a species of dragonfly that can be found in western areas of North America. It prefers to reside in warm areas near hot springs, ponds, and streams, but it can be seen backyards and public gardens. This species varies in size, but typically reaches a body length between two and three inches. Males are completely dark orange or red in color, the trait from which the species received its common name, while females...

A Bunsen burner produces a single open gas flame; it is commonly found in labs - used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. Robert Bunsen, in 1852, was hired at the University of Heidelberg and promised a new laboratory building. Heidelberg had just started installing coal-gas street lighting which provided light but not necessarily heat. Laboratory lamps, at the time, left much to be desired regarding economy and simplicity. The desire was to maximize the temperature and minimize...
