Metaloids ~ Tellurium

WHAT ARE METALOIDS?

Metalloids are the elements which possess the qualities of metals as well as non-metals, hence they are also known as semi-metals. Metalloids in the periodic table are placed between the metals and the non-metals and are located in a step-like structure. Hence we can say that the periodic table is divided into three types of elements: metals, non-metals and metalloids.

WHY ARE WE TALKING ABOUT METALOIDS?
Metaloids makes everything stronger. In Steel manufacturing, the ‘new’ steel is much stronger with the addition of Tellurium.


Metaloid Periodic Table
My eyes lit up when I saw this periodic table. I took chemistry in high school. Sure there is oxygen (O) and cobolt (Co) in the Periodic Table.  We never grouped them together in this manner. We never talked about metalloids. This is fascinating. New metals combined in such a way to strengthen products and make our lives better.

I bet you didn’t know how metaloids have made out lives better. Here are a few examples of metaloids that you are familiar with in today’s society.
Sodium borate (incl. boron) hinders fire and hence it is used in plastics and rubber inside your car.

The Metaloid Boron Works Here.

Since germanium also behaves like a semiconductor, it is used in the electronic devices like your car’s computer. Don’t forget the solar-powered cars too.

Silicon (Si) is used for more than breast implants and contact lenses. The alloys of silicon and aluminum are used in making cast parts for cars and other automobiles.

Metaloids are hard at work providing lifesaving items.
There’s not much more we can say about boron. Mainly, it’s tough!

Armored cars are not just Hummers. How about a Toyota Camry?  Oh yes! Metaloid – boron carbide in the steel plates is “armour”.  You will also need bullet proof glass for the ‘ total ‘ armored look.  Now you know what role boron plays in our lives.

RECYCLING LOWS
In spite of the significant efforts in a number of countries, are we surprised that metal recycling rates are low?  Many reports  embrace the fact that a ‘recycling society’ still appears to be a distant hope. Numbers tell it all as we look at the many items we do not recycle. Unlike some other resources, metals are “naturally recyclable”.  Poor performance in our communities is evident and frustrating.

 

Other than recycling steel from cars (:recycled steel bars or coiled rolls) the other metals that are recycled are listed below.

Top Ten Metals Recovered

  1. Aluminum (main uses: in construction and transportation)
  2. Lead (main use: batteries)
  3. Tin (main uses: cans and solder)
  4. Copper (main uses: conducting electricity and heat)
  5. Chromium (main use: stainless steels)
  6. Nickel (main uses: stainless steels and super alloys)
  7. Niobium (main uses: high strength / low alloy steels and super alloys)
  8. Manganese (main use: steel)
  9. Gold (main uses: jewelry, electronics)
  10. Silver (main uses: electronics, industrial applications (catalysts, batteries, glass/mirrors), jewellery);

EFFICIENT RECYCLING
With efficient recycling, metals can be used over and over again. It prevents us from being bandits and scraping metals from the earth. Garbage is growing as our society grows. It’s non-stop. We have to sort out our garbage and use all of it all again…and again…and again. burying garbage is a thing of the past. If you follow the news. you will remember when Sweden started buying garbage from other countries and using it for fuel to heat their homes. How good is that! Minimizing the need for mining and processing virgin materials has more benefits. It decrease the energy used to process material. Water requirements are reduced. Preventing land erosion is another benefit. We need to put more efforts into recycling at home and in the community. Success in raising levels of recycling worldwide would benefit the transition to a low-carbon, resource efficient Green Economy while assisting in the creation of green jobs.

REAL DEAL
Some studies suggest that recycling metals are between two and 10 times more energy-efficient than smelting the metals from virgin ore. At the same time, extraction alone currently accounts for 7% of the world’s energy consumption. We need to reduce the carbon emissions does contribute to climate change.

Recycling Metal Closes The Mining Gap

Recommendations Towards Improving Recovery

The study offers recommendations on how recycling could be increased worldwide. These suggestions include:

Also recommended is the ongoing improvement of recycling technologies and collection systems to keep pace with “ever more complex products created with an increasingly diverse range of metals and alloys.”

STEAM PUNK TABLES
I always like going to visit new scrap metal artists.  Scrap art takes the shape and form of just about anything. Chairs and tables are simple or sophisticated. It all depends on what you want.

Here are the latest artists’ creations to rock your scrap world.
This table lies flat on the welding table. All the pieces are soldered together. You then flip the table top over to get a smooth surface. The chain links are welded one by one to stiffen the links you form the perimeter. The base of the table has a stack of metal ’rounds’ one on top of the other. Any kind of base will do. This is what you do when you are cleaning up. Your workshop builds up lots of odds and ends.  Don’t throw them out. Make a table!  You can spray paint it with outdoor rust proof paint. A conversation piece for sure.  Novelty tables you can put in your “Man Cave” or just about anywhere, I would build this into a bird bath in the backyard. This table is christened as a “STEAM PUNK” table.

“Where’s that wrench? Oh! It’s in the table. You mean on the table …no..in the table!

Here is one of many videos about repurposed tables. Have fun and make or buy a symbol of recycling or up-cycling. It is a good reminder that we should be diligent in our care of the planet.

If you find an old singer sewing machine-made from heavy iron, you can make a table out of it.

SPIDERMAN: This is very cool. I really like how they made the table top like a spider’s web. Brilliant and fun table. That’s not going to get blown over on a windy day — any time soon!

Spiderman With Stools

This table is made from farm machinery and a saw blade. The big saw blade had been de-clawed for the table top. I have seen these tables when they leave the cutting edge on the blade. I liked the cleaned up version. You need to be a proficient welder to take on this project.

RECYCLING GROWTH
People in the recycling business came to share their expertise in Markham, Ontario. The latest discoveries and developments in recycling was all under one roof for two days. The sore feet were worth it as I visited many booths. It was good to keep up with new ideas and see what everyone else is doing in the industry. Seeing the exhibits and hearing all the latest ideas was a lot of fun. I look forward to next years convention. It’s a booming industry!

It’s not summer yet. But, why wait to build your new BBQ. You can get started now as the weather is warming up. Send us your pictures. Use these easy instructions. We’d love to see how you did!
SUMMER BBQ
Step By Step Instructions
I selected this BBQ because there is no welding. You would need a drill. for the stand to screw in the stand and the castors. This is optional. Don’t worry, I have provided variations instead of making a stand.
To begin with, you can get truck or tractor tire rims from any scrap yards. You will have to do some calling around. After that, the fun begins!

Truck Tire Rim -No Welding

If your tire comes with a rubber . Keep it to make a flower-pot, fish pond, sand box or tire swing. The ideas are endless.

Step One- Remove The Tire

These are the tools you need to build the stand. If you have an old metal stand you can use it.

Step 2 – Paint And Prepare The Stand.

Wooden Stand

Add Ring For The Pipe Stand.

Hook For Your BBQ

Tire Rim BBQ – No Welding

VARIATIONS
I promised you variations to this BBQ.
I included the charcoal set up to help you see how you can arrange the charcoal. Instead of the stand, you can use heat-resistant pavers or bricks beneath the BBQ.

When they talk about obsolete metals. They are talking about scrap metal such as scrap car recycling.This video covers aluminum, oil prices and other commodities. Europe and Asia are doing well. I would have thought only Asia (as in China) would excel.

METAL MINERS MONTHLY 2017
The most accurate reports are based on the previous months’ numbers of what was actually bought and sold. There was no significant change from March to April. Inventory for scrap metal is low at this time. indicating that the rest of May and the rest of the summer months will be good if not slightly better then the slump of 2015/2016.

World STEEL GROWTH Forecast

The World Steel Association (worldsteel) today (Apr.27.2017) released its Short Range Outlook (SRO) for 2017 and 2018. worldsteel forecasts that global steel demand will increase by 1.3% to 1,535.2 Mt in 2017, following growth of 1.0% in 2016. In 2018, it is forecast that global steel demand will grow by 0.9% and will reach 1,548.5 Mt.  published by the World Steel Association.

Scrap Metals (and obsolete scrap metal) shows an improvement in demand in the steel industry for 2017/18. This is good news ~ a healthy booster shot in the steel industry. Since China holds 45% of the steel industry, how does it help us here in Canada? What is expected is that China’s grip will start to loosen up. Russia and Brazil are coming out of their recession. As their economy strengthens, demand in steel will also improve.

Family Road Trip To La La Land

A Memorable Road Trip

WHAT IS STOPPING YOU? There are many reasons why you should get rid of your soon to be “junk car”.  It ain’t ticking anymore. Repairs are or will be too much to warrant keeping the old rust bucket. One reasons you are attached to your trusty, rusty, heap is:-

(2) Fun trips to the beach/lake. After a day at the beach, you felt good with the sun on your face. You opened the car door and slide into the car seat with sand still in your sandals. A happy, sunny glow as you lay your hand on you honey’s arm with a gentle squeeze and simply smiled. Those kind of memories are unforgettable. Many more trips. Drive in movies! (If you can find one). Going to the lake ~ fishing, hiking with your pals. Driving over a Sasquatch (Harry and the Hendersons).

(3) Do you remember the very first day you got your new car, SUV or Van. You felt on top of the world! What a great day!
