It can not be used for describing properties of thermoanthracite, because electric resistance of any crushed material is always higher (and rather significantly) than of non-crushed compact material.
When combined with the advantages of electric resistance melting, such as low metal loss, fewer scrap castings, negligible air quality issues and operator comfort, IDMS makes electric resistance melting less costly per pound of metal melted than gas-fired melting and is useful for areas of the country where electricity is more expensive, such as the eastern seaboard and California.
Electric storage water heaters have electric resistance heating elements immersed in the water in the storage tank and lose efficiency primarily from heat loss through the tank insulation.
Let us consider them in the aspect of temperature dependence of specific electric resistance.
Modern Equipment produces aluminum melting furnaces, ladles and other molten metal handling systems; Stotek makes electric resistance and fossil fueled furnaces for melting, holding and pouring aluminum.
These weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that it derives from its established market position in the electric resistance welded (ERW) pipe segment.
o], necessitating extensive use of costly, and energy-inefficient, electric resistance heating.
Under these conditions, electrons travel freely within the cavity; electric resistance arises from the bouncing of electrons off the microstructure's sides.
A large-diameter double submerged arc weld ("DSAW") pipe mill (annual capacity in excess of 200,000 tons) that can produce large-diameter line pipe up to 42 inches in diameter and an electric resistance welded ("ERW") pipe mill (annual capacity of 120,000 tons) that can produce line pipe and casing up to 16 inches in diameter, both located on the same site in Camrose, Alberta, Canada.
