The best time to find Luwak coffee is in the early mornings when the droppings are fresh, because the Luwak is a nocturnal animal, but it really takes a long time to collect enough to have one kilogram to sell, and it's a lot of work," said local Gayo farmer Misrun, who has a total of 1200 trees on half a hectare of land.
The DST-2 at 4,816 to 4,885 feet was a misrun, as the tool plugged immediately upon opening.
Pouring temperatures in the 2,100-2,275 F (1,149-1,246 C) range were needed to reduce misrun scrap, but may have contributed to higher amounts of centerline shrinkage porosity.
In this case, the residual sand had prevented the normal passage of the molten metal, leading to a misrun defect in that particular area.
If, for example, a misrun defect was observed in a casting and it was known that the metal was poured 45 degrees below the lower specification limit established for the part, then the cause would be assignable.
DST 1 was a misrun, and the results of DST 2 conducted on March 24, 2006 were an initial potential of 653 BOPD.
The software performs misrun formation predictions, including permeability-calculations for the "mushy zone," providing enhanced enmeshment techniques for designing thin-walled castings.
Besides a few minor misruns attributable to a lower melt superheat than currendy is used to produce this head, the casting passed all other inspection criteria.
However, defects such as gas inclusions and misruns are hard to control and remain a challenge.
Wireline Engineering estimates that the Advanced Kickover Tool can deliver very significant cost savings as the risk of misruns and operating overruns is reduced.
