-Matter didn’t create anti matter -Anti matter didn’t create matter (Both of them were present at the time of big bang) -Both of them didn’t create themselves. -Both of them came from an unimaginable source, that unimaginable source created matter and antimatter (everything) thats why it is known as “the creator” of everything. ------ - that unimaginable source/creator has created sin and virtue which are opposite to each other, - logic says every action has its own reaction, so the reaction of sin must be different than the reaction of virtue, - the creator has created prophets to let us know about each and every detail of sin and virtue, also about their reactions, Thank you :)

R134a can also be detected by using the blue flame of propane and waving it around until it comes in contact with R134a (Tetrafluoroethane) or R-12 (dichlorodifluoromethane) when the Blue flame will turn brilliant green. The intensity of the greenness in the flame depends on the saturation level, so one can narrow the search for the source of the leak down by sweeping the area with the flame at floor level. This is not done in submarines for obvious reasons so they use a "Sniffer" instead. But, if you ever need to find a leak of these and some other nonvolatile gasses this is a good way to do so, with due "caution" of course.

Refrigerant is usually halogenated carbon or halogenated vinyl. These were banned under the chemical weapon manufacture treaty the authority of the EPA was supposed to reach this obligation. It is possible to have refrigerators without refrigerant and without consumption of current. Edison generators and dynamos can produce any voltage and current needed without food or pollutants.

Funnily enough our old now retired B767-300's used oxygen generators (candles) about the size of a hockey puck for the pax in case of emergency. Pretty clever tech that I'm glad is still being used. Yes they get rather hot!!

I put off watching this as I figured I had it all down... But the MEA and the oxygen candles were unexpected, well the oxygen candles were somewhat expected. Airliners uses something similar for their emergency O2 supply if they lose cabin pressure.

I have another question. Who knows if you read it. I need help designing and making a structure that is not electronic but mechanical in design. So, the inside layer is simply a compass. The secondary layer (outer sphere) I want it to be able to track fixed points towards our centre solar system. IE like the galactic median. I was thinking that setup process may include pointing at no fixed points from earth, thus it simply tracks the fixes locations of star cluster creating an intersecting points (cross hairs) of our solar system. Then a third layer of fixes galaxies towards our galaxy, painting crosshairs on our galaxy. I thin it would be fun and useful... Of course... the centre of our galaxy is offset from out location, just as earth is offset form the solar system centre for the previous one.... My thoughts is if you like nasa, or navigation. A mechanical globe with layered spherical latices with points could rotate to those locations during night or day, so you always know your position relative to our observable universe.. which is good practice if one is traveling.... Compass direction give us 2D directions on earth... Solar system directions give us 3d dimensional directions on EARTH, but 3d directions in our solar system.. the process continues. their simply looking for stable points between systems of hierarchy that are stable enough to be used as accurate reference to conceptualize where we are in the universe. On earth without magnets it would be hard to create a reference of movement, with the stars changing, one would have to have a very good understanding of timing and location already to use the stars to conceptualize where the planet they are. Setting this up would change depending on fixed objects targeted in the sky... maybe that makes no sense, but it sounds like fun.. knowing your place in the universe... Universal navigator.. the reason I was thinking mechanical system, or limited energy, is that it would work in any place within our Galaxy. without the need of outside source of power except the person, winding it or whatever is used to track, and power its movements.... and with base knowledge one could set it up... to navigate again.. hmm... lost in space.. with a ... galactic compass. lol... rather then a solar or terrestrial one. :D

The amine absorbs CO2 better when cold, so after the amine gets heated up in the boiler and had its CO2 driven off, first the now lean amine is used to preheat the incoming rich amine in a heat exchanger.This helps to cool the lean amine as well as pre-heat the rich amine, which reduces the amount of external heating and cooling that needs to be done, saving energy. The lean anime is then further cooled before being sprayed again.

Very interesting video. Would be kinda concerned about potential of flash oxygen fires without the oxygen being highly diluted immediately. Doesn't take much percent higher than nominal to create dangerous conditions in an enclosed space. Presumably, the electrolysis oxygen production is the normal method and maybe it pipes/dilutes into vent system rather than just pouring it into production area...?

I understood this but I also felt like it was way above my paygrade. What I am curious about is how they dispose of the used candles? Do they throw them out to sea to decrease any potential added weight or are they kept on board?

Question for everyone in the comments. All the tech in this episode looks super legacy, everything is analogue and CRT screens. Is that simplicity for ease of repair sake, security from cyber threats, or because these submarines haven't received a big time update in several decades? I can't help but think that having your breathable air levels on a tablet (for example) would be far superior than physical dials having to cycle from one screen to another in the event of a critical air situation. Can someone venture an explanation?

Those candles 100% remind me of the SolidOX soldering bars you used to be able to buy at a hardware store. Same thing on them too. Some sort of perchlorate compound in a small ( the size of a roll of US quarters) with a red phosphorous tip. Light it, stick it in the holder, and it pushes out oxygen enriched gas that we used to melt copper down with. The spent bar was a strange slag looking bread textured thing. Just like those clinkers. I bet these are the same things just bigger.

A boy asked a girl in a library: "Do you mind if I sit next to you"? The girl replied with a loud angry voice; "I don't want to spend the night with you !! Everyone in the library started looking at the boy and felt embarrassed. After a few minutes the girl walked calmly to the boy's table and said: I study psychology and I know what the man is thinking, I suppose you felt ashamed, right? The boy answered out loud: $ 300 for one night That's too much! and all the people in the library looked at the girl in shock and the boy whispered in her ear, "I study laws and I know how to make someone guilty ... 🤭 If you like the comment, please "write" on my channel ...

-------- Original message -------- From: John Harpe Date: 2/24/21 8:43 AM (GMT-08:00) To: John Harpe Subject: Dear GSED, Thank you for your SLtv productions. I have enjoyed many. A recent offering brought to attention “Central Atmospheric Monitoring Station” (or something along those lines) on nuclear submarines for crew oxygen and carbon dioxide management. Having a background as a retired First Responder and Respiratory Therapist myself, I hope you don’t mind me asking an academic question regarding ship HVAC designs that can possibly destroy aerial microbes from the atmospheric while encouraging air and droplet microbes to enter a floor ventilation intake away from hands and noses, and then is ionized and temperature controlled as it travels up wall passages to be re-introduced above a Sailors head. Air movement is then encouraged to move from top down. I believe the end effect would be like being in the center of a toroidal vortex gas movement, but the recirculated air is N95 filtered and USN sterilized before overhead reintroduction. Thank you kindly😊

Why not build a plant 🌱 room on submarine? We have the lights for indoor growth and it would be a natural way to removed the CO2 and get oxygen! It also has the potential to look really cool with plants all over a submarine.

The "preheating" of the rich amine (23:37) is probably just a part where excess heat from something else hot on the sub is reused to make this process require less heat. He mentioned a heat exchanger, and after more thought, I would guess it is the heat from pressurizing the CO2. I'd bet money that they have a lot more heat generated than can be dissipated by the sub, so they probably want to minimize their heat generation wherever possible
