    How to tell graphite crucible from ceramic crucibles

    By Jackie Alan

    Published Sep 27 

    A clay graphite crucible is made of a mixture of clay and graphite which is then fired and it is bound together by silica in the clay part of the mixture. A graphite crucible usually described as a pure graphite crucible is close to 100% graphite and typically they are a lot smaller. This is a critical distinction as a discovered to my chagrin. If you have a material that will dissolve silica and you fire it in a clay graphite crucible it will eat through the crucible. I did this with a glass formulation where I bought a clay graphite crucible (several in fact) then fired my batch in it and it melted down through the crucible to the shelf underneath...

    Tax Considerations When Buying or Selling a Agricultural Land

    By Stan Clark

    Published Sep 6 

    Buying and selling agricultural land isn't as easy as it may seem. There are numerous tax considerations that must be taken into account in order to ensure that the transaction is completed correctly. For example, if the land is being sold for a profit, then capital gains tax will need to be paid on the sale. Similarly, if the land is being purchased for investment purposes, then stamp duty will need to be paid on the purchase price. In addition, there may also be other taxes that apply, such as council rates and land tax...

    Mining and Processing plant Financing and Long Term Investment.

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published May 26 

    Mining and Processing plant Financing and Long Term Investment. The financial needs of companies that initiate the construction of mining and processing plants are growing as mineral resources are depleted, technologies become more sophisticated and environmental standards tighten. This dynamic sector, vulnerable to fluctuations in world prices, has faced serious challenges in recent years. Project finance (PF) for mining and processing plants through the establishment of SPV / SPE is one of the promising approaches to new mining projects. One of the keys to business success is to align the financial needs of a mining project for continuous implementation and development with the highly variable economic results of mining operations...

    "Before spending hundreds of dollars on a new drone, most farmers want to know if they’re purchasing a valuable piece of technology or an expensive toy. . . .
    "Once users enter their farm-specific data, the Drone Flight Calculator determines economic returns on either a per-acre or per-season basis. The tool is free to use, and Measure does not collect the information that is entered."

    Posted By Grain Dryer
    Mar 28, 2019 

    The benefits of the drying process

    Risk-free storage
    Grain dryers quickly reduce the moisture content of the freshly harvested grain to safe levels and allow for its long-term storage. 

    Flexibility for the farmer
    Farmers are free to decide when to carry out drying whatever the weather conditions and to sell the grain when the market price is most favourable, generally months after threshing. 

    Increased value
    As well as drying the grain, the dryer removes the impurities collected in the field. This improves the quality of the end product and therefore its market value. 

    Return on the investment
    Purchasing a dryer requires a relatively modest financial commitment and the value of the used machine remains high over the years, thereby guaranteeing an excellent return on the investment.

    Standing by farmers is our commitment at a worldwide level, which also, and especially, means taking care of the whole planet and making decisions focusing on environmental sustainability.
