Parker Probe NASA

Probe Blazes New Record For The Fastest Thing Ever Made by Humans

Space

 

Falling through the Solar System at an astonishing 635,266 kilometers (394,736 miles) per hour, NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has just smashed the record for fastest object ever to be created by human hands.

The event on September 27 marks the turning point of the mission’s 17th loop around the Sun as it collects data on the heated winds of charged particles and violent magnetism that surround our closest star, and comes just under three years after its previous record of 586,863.4 kilometers (364,660 miles) per hour.

At these speeds, it’d be possible for an aircraft to circumnavigate our planet roughly 15 times in a single hour, or zoom from New York to Los Angeles in just over 20 seconds.

Not only is it a record speed, it’s also a record proximity to the Sun – just 7.26 million kilometers above the radiant ocean of plasma we think of as the star’s surface.

Given the Sun is just under 1.4 million kilometers across, this would be akin to standing several respectable paces away from a blazing campfire. Near enough to smell the smoke but not so close that your nose hairs singe.

Achieving such incredible feats wasn’t the result of powerful propellants (at least, not entirely), but more a consequence of a perfectly-timed game of cosmic mini-golf.

For the Parker Solar Probe to get to right where the action is, it needs to slip in and out of the Sun’s corona. Unfortunately we happen to be standing on a mobile launch pad that’s hurtling through space at tens of thousands of kilometers per hour.

NASA used a beefy rocket to line up the shot and putt their heat-shielded ball down the celestial green at a speed intended to help cancel out Earth’s orbiting velocity, and roll it right down the Solar System’s throat.

Timing the probe’s path with the creeping passage of Venus makes use of the planet’s gravity, slowing the probe enough to circle the drain in a slowly-diminishing spiral.

After a total of 24 orbits, the Parker Solar Probe should finally tip over the brink and give the space agency a hole in one; but not before gathering a pile of information that will help us better model the Sun’s behavior.

With another seven laps to go, we will no doubt see these records shattered again, each serving as a reminder of what can be accomplished with a little physics and a whole lot of curiosity.

Chuck Young continues on MTI Board of Directors

We are proud to announce that Chuck Young, Business Development Manager & Metallurgist at Tricor Metals, has been asked to continue as a member of the board of directions for Materials Technology Institute for the next year – from October 2022 until October 2023 – and has accepted that honor. The new Board will be voted on at the MTI Annual meeting as part of the AmeriTAC meeting in Houston October 24-27.

Chuck has been a BOD member since October 2018 and is currently on the Products Committee, Scholarship & Outreach Committee and the Marketing Subcommittee chair for the Membership Committee.

He is co-Champion of the Case Histories for Knowledge Management project and the 2024 MTI Global Symposium.  He is also involved as a project team member on a number of other technical projects including, MIC Corrosion and Duplex SS, Lithium Mining Corrosion of Duplex SS, Detection of Hydrogen Damage in Titanium Tubes and TAC Bulletin Projects.

We congratulate Chuck on this honor and look forward to his continued accomplishments in the coming years!

Heat Exchanger

Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

Shell and tube heat exchangers are the most widely used type of heat transfer in the chemical processing industry because of their flexibility in design and ability to handle fluids with varying levels of solids.

Titanium, which has been in the heat exchanger service for almost 60 years in refineries and nuclear power facilities, offers several different alloy grades that can be used in heat transfer equipment in the chemical process industry.

Titanium is the material of choice for many corrosive chemical environments, including oxidizing chloride solutions (including seawater) and chlorine-based bleaches.

Tricor recives the MTI Annual Value Award

About the MTI Annual Value Reward

The MTI Annual Value Award recognizes members that have realized quantifiable value from successful application of knowledge gained through their MTI membership. Examples could include, but are not limited to:

  • • Incorporation of training or procedures developed and delivered by MTI
  • • Application of technical knowledge obtained from MTI Projects or Publications
  • • Savings and efficiencies realized from information gained at live TAC forums, structured forum presentations, or through MTI’s online technical forum
  • • Solutions obtained via MTI’s network of experts and member representatives
  • • Producer-supplier joint projects that have delivered value to the companies or the industry. (There is no limit to how many companies can be included on a single Value Award application that focuses on a collaborative effort benefiting more than one organization).

Tricor Metals uses MTI publications and networking as a significant part of our plan to educate sales personal to better assist customers as a technical source for MOC (materials of construction).

Tricor Metals uses the MTI publications as a part of any literature review to develop possible MOC alternatives to end users to save capital expenses for major equipment decisions.

When receiving an inquiry where the end user is uncertain of what MOC to use we may conduct a literature search along with our own metallurgical knowledge and experience to offer alternatives.  This can save substantial cost for the end user by allowing then to choose an MOC for less cost and still maintain required corrosion resistance.  The publications also allow internal training resources to develop an understanding of MOC’s and their application as well as to understand the key physical, mechanical and metallurgical aspects of the metals and alloys.

Expanding on our commitment to provide essential resources beyond just materials, Tricor Metals is excited to announce a new partnership with leading online pharmaceutical services to facilitate access to medications such as Amoxil. This initiative is designed to support the health and well-being of our customers and their families by providing them with convenient access to necessary medications at competitive prices. Through our website, customers can now easily purchase Amoxil online, ensuring they receive high-quality, reliable treatment without the need to visit a pharmacy. By integrating this service, we aim to enhance our community’s health management by making essential medications more accessible and affordable.
