Top Five Advantages of Stainless Steel Products

Stainless steel (also known as inox or inox steel) can be defined as an alloy of steel containing a significant percentage (10.5) of chromium content. Besides iron and chromium, stainless steel also consists of molybdenum, nickel, and carbon. Among them, nickel is capable of acting as a catalyst in a certain crystalline structure known as austenite. (Information credit: Eurosteel)


Stainless steel exhibits many properties such as –

a) Anti oxidation: The chromium content of stainless steel acts as a galvanising agent and provides a passive layer that protects this material from getting oxidised in air. The oxidation of iron in air and water is popularly known as rusting. The amount of chromium might vary in this alloy from 13% to 26% according to the nature of the environment. If the air is damp, more chromium content will be required to prevent rusting.


b) Non-reactivity against acid, base, and alkali: Stainless steel usually doesn’t undergo chemical reaction with acids and alkaline substances depending upon the temperature. For example, at room temperature, type 904 steel doesn’t even react with concentrated sulphuric acid whereas type 430 is non-reactive with nitric acid. In the case of bases and alkalis, stainless steel materials of the300 series are impervious to alkalis like sodium hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite.


Due to these properties, stainless steel is used in numerous fields and to manufacture myriads of products such as pipes, sheets, plates, coils, valves, flanges, ornamental tubing, decorative finish, BSP fittings and many more. 


Products made of stainless steel come with many advantageous features. These features are discussed below:


1. Free from corrosion: Stainless steel is impervious to oxidation that prevents rusting and consequently prevents corrosion. It is also non-reactive to various acids and alkaline substances. So stainless products are unlikely to be spoiled even if it comes in contact with acids. All varieties of stainless steel are also water resistant.


2. Ductile nature: Stainless steel has a high elasticity quotient that makes it one of the most ductile metals in the world. This nature allows designingof products of any possible shape and size from long pipes to small flanges. This property also makes the installation of such products much easier.


3. Temperature resistant: Almost all varieties of stainless steel are resistant to temperature. They can withstand significantly higher temperature than room temperature. Because of this and corrosion resistance, all products made of this substance are extremely durable.


4. Economic advantage: This type of steel is a widely manufactured substance that makes its cost significantly low. Furthermore, the durability and corrosion resistance of this type of steel greatly lowers its maintenance cost. The installation cost of stainless steel products, like pipes, is also very low because they are easy to install and require less manpower.


5. Aesthetic qualities: Stainless steel finishes are aesthetically pleasing and the products made of it can blend themselves in with modern architectural constructions and designs.


These are the main reasons behind the huge popularity of various stainless steel objects across the globe.

    The best way to scan large documents is to use a large format scanner. The large format scanner is one of the best solutions if you are planning to generate a digital archive.  Some large format architectural printers have built-in scanning facilities. However, you can invest in a large format scanner to make excellent scans. Whether your documents are torn, have thick foamy boards, or have faded colors, no matter how difficult your project is, scanning with a large format scanner ensures accurate and high quality images.   Scanning a standard document is quite easy; the document feeder or the flatbed handle do not create many problems. However, scanning large documents could create a lot of hassles. Whether you want to print blueprints, long certificates, architectural drawings, or banners, a large format scanner is the one stop solution for all your scanning issues. (Information credit:   If you have never used a large format scanner before, here are some simple steps that will ensure a smooth scanning process.   1. Determine the Layout of Your Documents Before getting into the details of how to scan large documents, you must find out about the layout of your documents. Talking about scanning, a large document can mean several things: it can mean a document with large volumes of pages or simply an oversized document. Large documents may include architectural designs, exceptionally wide banners, long certificates and images requiring careful handling.  Irrespective of the type of documents, you must be thoroughly informed about their specifications.   2. Prepare the Documents Before sending your documents over for scanning, you must inspect them.  If there are any torn edges or paper folds, they might create problems while scanning.  Additionally, check if your document is clean or not.  Neat documents are the key to good scanning.   4. Load the Pages into the Feeder Once you have organized your documents into a neat pile, load them into the feeder. Large format scanners mostly involve feed rolls. This is why you should align the edges of your documents before placing them on the feeder. Once you have finished preparing the feeder, there is really nothing much left for you to do.   4. Calibrate Your Scanner Cleaning and calibration are important for a scanner’s optimal performance. Calibration will enhance the accuracy of your scanning. Calibrating your scanner to your monitor is very similar to calibrating your monitor to your printer. You can choose a good program, for instance, Adobe Photoshop, to do your calibration. Some people also buy third-party calibration programs that are readily available in the market. Regardless of what you are using, the process involves these following steps:   Generate a color reference sheet Scan this color reference sheet Make sure you clean up the scanned copy by removing dust and scratches. Analyze your scan either by making visual adjustments or allowing the profiling software to make adjustments.   5. Press Scan Once you have completed all the above steps successfully, you are all set for scanning. Check your set up and hit the scan option. Make sure that you don’t forget to save the file in the appropriate format — pdf, jpg or tiff.   If you have a sizeable scanning project to complete, switch to a large format scanner to get excellent scans. For large document scanning in fields such as construction, architecture, engineering and manufacturing, a large format scanner is extremely helpful. Talking about technicality, large format scanners have high cameras that set them apart from other forms of scanners. The excellent technology of large format scanner ensures hundred percent accuracy of the image.

    Investing is a key factor that helps you reach your long term goals. There are some factors that determine your success in investing. Your knowledge about investing, the tools that you want to use during investing, your motivation, your time and most importantly, expert guidance, are some of the factors. If you are new to investing, you need to get the lay of the land first. Before investing, you need to know what stock, investment allocation, bond, ETF and mutual fund are.

First you should analyse the market before making a decision according to the right asset allocation. You also need to determine which investments you should buy, and implement the buys and sells. Once you have implemented the buys and sells, you have to monitor the portfolio and manage and rebalance the portfolio according to the prudent repeatable process (make sure that it is tax efficient). Seek the counsel of an advisor who provides you guidance and recommendations: If you prefer this option, the advisor will help you by giving you advice in terms of allocation and specific investments.

    Pest control is vital to all walks of life. Whether on account of personal health, for agriculture or for industry, getting rid of pests is an absolute necessity. A ‘pest’ is popularly defined as various species of animals (usually insects) which do considerable harm to or pollute our surroundings. Creatures such as flies, fleas, mice, locusts, cockroaches come under the ambit of ‘pest’. Exterminating them is a pre-requisite for maintaining a healthy life and a healthier economy. Pest control appeared first in human societies back in the Neolithic Revolution era, when large numbers of human races began to switch to an agricultural way of life from the traditional pastoralism. With settling down and growing crops for subsistence, the need for saving their plants and produce came up. Against seed-eating birds, mice which gnawed into the roots, locusts which destroyed crops---man needed something to shield his livelihood with. Thus he invented techniques such as crop rotation, companion cropping, selective-breeding of pest-resistant varieties etc. And by the 3rd Millennium BCE, he had come up with the chemical fertiliser. As industrialisation spread through the 18th and 19th centuries, chemical pesticides began to be produced on a much wider scale. In recent times, we have seen a number of innovations, experimentations and re-thinking done in this arena. Concerns about the long-term toxic effect of agricultural chemical pesticides, Governments and farmers have turned to more eco-friendly means of pest control management. Some of these are: BIOLOGICAL PEST CONTROL: Use of microbial or live animals to control pests such as mosquitoes. The soil bacterium species Bt. israelensis infects the digestive systems of mosquito larvae, and kills them. Fish such as tilapia and carp feed on mosquito eggs and larvae.  Use of pet cats by farmers to devour and control pests such as rats and mice has been there since the beginning of civilisation. MECHANICAL PEST CONTROL: Use of netting over the crop can help to prevent winged pests from descending on it. Putting polythene or collar-like structures around the roots prevent larvae from eating the soil nutrients or roots. Use of carnivorous plants or insect and mice traps, also goes a long way in keeping them from ravaging crops. Immersing of plant parts in hot water to kill off mites and bacteria is also practised in many parts. SOLARISATION OR SOLAR PEST CONTROL: Cover up soils or substrates with transparent polythene for weeks on end during summer. This heats up the soil temperature so much that many harmful microbes and insect larvae are killed. This also helps to considerably disinfect the soil. BREEDING GROUND ELIMINATION: It’s common knowledge by now that preventing the accumulation of fresh water in soil cracks, the breeding of mosquitoes can be prevented. Also the scattering around of garbage and waste with no proper means of disposing, provides ample scope for cockroach, rat and fly infestation. Thus it is an absolute necessity for all communities to have a proper garbage drop-off, collection and disposal system. Also the municipalities of all cities must make sure that roads are not pot-holed. Similarly, sewers should not be left open or uncovered. It’s not for nothing that they say “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. Use of LED spectrums is also known to stop the breeding of certain insects. FIELD BURNING, BAIT POISONING ETC.: This is mainly used on caterpillars that infest mulberry leaves, groundnuts and other crops. Caterpillars are polyphagous creatures, and every female butterfly lays about 1200 eggs, which hatch within four to five days, immediately after which the young creatures start feeding. Once grown up, caterpillars ravage the crop of a single field within a week, leaving behind only stems. The most effective means to control them are: Deep-ploughing of fields just before monsoon season to expose the pupae and kill them with sunlight; making bonfires on the field bunds at night to destroy larvae en masse or use of poisoning by larva pesticides. Apart from caterpillars, field burning is also used to kill off rodents or insects.    Apart from agriculture and agricultural commerce, pest control management systems play a huge part in urbane private lifestyles as well. In order to keep our homes safe from flies, mosquitoes and cockroaches, we frequently order large cans of Hit and Baygon to spray-kill cockroaches and rats, and buy coils and insect-repellent aroma dispensers to keep out mosquitoes. Apart from these home measures, we also employ professional exterminator teams from time to time to hunt down and expel pests. For commercial enterprises, these teams design elaborate pest-ridding schemes, and devise and experiment with ways to implement and maintain them. Emergencies are well-attended to, and most of these units are very effective as well. Still, self-help is the best help when it comes to staying clean, healthy and safe.

    Modern life is full of stresses of every kind imaginable. There’s the stress of office, of home, spouse, kids, co-workers, bosses...the list goes on. This has sprung into existence various mental, physical and psycho-somatic ailments, such as panic attacks, insomnia, acid reflux etc. Hence, there has been a spurt in the business of psychiatrists and counsellors who offer their services to soothe the frayed nerves. Alongside medical professionals, there exist people such as Life Coaches; people who can dispense tips and advice related to upping the quality of your life and helping to manage your problems effectively. One of the major mental ailments that are a bane for the modern population is depression. Widely known as the silent killer, it could be fatal unless attended to in time. Life coaches, while not trained medical professionals, do provide a lot of help when it comes to milder or medium forms of depression.So what exactly are the symptoms of depression which an offline or online life coaching service would help one get rid of? Let’s see. Helping One to Get Past Overgeneralisation: A life coach helps the afflicted person to get rid of the negative patterns, that have formed in their minds. Negative thought generalisation is something that someone who is depressed will adopt. Negative thinking patterns have the potential of forever keeping the person stuck in a rut of negativity and negative energy.E.g., a person who receives bad treatment from one person for no apparent reason will expect everyone else to treat them as badly. It is important to break this pattern, and that’s what life coaches help with. Filtering Out the ‘Right’: This is yet another major thing that enables the negativity to trap your soul. It makes the depressed person focus on what went ‘wrong’ for him/her, but conveniently overlooks what went ‘right’. This is yet another thought cycle that a life coach can train you to break. Emotional Reasoning: Emotional reasoning is the bane that helps to strengthen the two aforementioned and afore-described trains or lines of thought. Suppose one goes out to a park, accidentally hits a stone and falls down. At that very moment, they see a group of people next to them burst out loud, laughing. This leads the person to conclude that it was their clumsiness which had lead to the people laughing, whereas it might not have been so. Following one incident, the person would keep on applying the same logic everywhere which would make it seem that everyone around him/her is laughing or deriding him/her. Not Enjoying Things That One Previously Used To: A characteristic feature of depression that it prevents people from enjoying what they previously used to. In fact, they are not only trapped in a cesspool of negativity, but all attempts at snatching bits of positivity fail miserably. They feel helpless and lost. The four symptoms described above are the four cardinal features of depression. A Life Coach with the requisite training can help by prescribing methods and advocating practises by which a person could overcome the stat of depression and muster strength to climb up from the pits of hell.

    Working as a veterinarian is the career of choice for a lot of animal lovers. Not only is it a lucrative career profession that is a lot less academically demanding as compared to human medicinal courses, but it’s also extremely emotionally fulfilling as a profession. So, what does it take to become a vet? Below are some useful tips on adapting veterinary medicine as a profession:    Gain experience in the veterinary field: The keyword for a flourishing career in the veterinary field is “experience”. That’s something that matters more than even degrees or education. Gather as much experience as it is possible with animals in your locality, your school compound or the community pet centre. And if you’re an animal lover, then it’d be an added advantage since you’d gain some first-hand exposure with regards to animals and their health matters.   Graduate from high school. You should graduate from school with a specialisation in a science subject, such as biology, physics or chemistry, not to forget maths. If you’re good at science and especially Biology, then you’d have a hunch that medicine is the correct field of choice for you, much in the same manner as the general medical stream for becoming a doctor for humans.   Get a bachelors degree. Attend a college which offers the course which is required to get into a medical or vet college. Or, you can straightaway get into a vet school from high school. If one particular school has a different set of prerequisites from the others, then you should make sure that you have taken all the required courses before enrolling into a veterinary college.   Consider an accelerated path to veterinary school. In case you don’t like to go through the hassles of additional courses before veterinary college, then it’s better to earn a degree or working experience as a veterinary’s associate or deputy, which is somewhat like an apprentice. Once you complete the internship, you’ll be issued a certificate which would enable you to set up your own practise. There are fortunately more than one way to get into vet school.   Work hard on your application to veterinary school. Getting into a veterinary school is very hard. There are far fewer veterinary schools than medical schools. So, you need to make your application stand out! Making your application stand out is not hard! First, you will need to get lots of veterinary experience and animal experience.   Prepare for the financial strain of veterinary school. Like colleges relating to most other disciplines, getting into a Vet College is extremely expensive. But worry not, since that part could be taken care of by the numerous scholarship programmes and student loan provisions existing in the nation of South Africa. Additionally, take up a few part-time jobs if need arises.   Complete veterinary school. It is usually a couple of years before one can earn the coveted DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine to widen the acronym). Penn Foster College and Plat College are two of the most accredited and famous vet colleges in Johannesburg, and they allow students to graduate from the college in duration of just over three years, or even lower. The courses which are covered in these colleges range from general anatomy and biochemistry to pharmacology and animal surgery.
