Industrial processes are procedures involving chemical or mechanical steps to aid in the manufacture of an item or items, usually carried out on a very large scale..
Industri…al processes are the key components of heavy industry..
Most processes make the production of an otherwise rare material vastly cheaper, thus changing it into a commodity; i.e. the process makes it economically feasible for society to use the material on a large scales, in machinery, or a substantial amount of raw materials, in comparison to batch or craft processes. Production of a specific material may involve more than one type of process. Mhost industrial processes result in both a desired product(s) and by-products, many of which are toxic, hazardous, or hard to deal with. Very, very few processes are self-contained (MORE)
Catalysts increase the speed of a reaction without taking place in the reaction themselves. This is very useful in industry as it means that chemicals can be made much faster …through usually slow chemical reactions, and as the catalysts don't take part in the reaction themselves, they can be reused as much as its needed. Examples of catalysts in industries include the use of the biological catalysts enzymes to brake down substrates in baby foods into smaller simpler molecules. Catalysts lower the activation energy required for a reaction to occur. This will mean that more molecules will have the energy to react. Catalysts allow equilibrium to be established quicker. Catalysts in general lower reaction temperatures leading to lower production costs. Catalysts add to cost e.g. palladium in catalytic converters. Catalysts can be poisoned by waste products eg. Sulphur in petrol and oil can reduce the properties of catalytic converters. (MORE)
All diamonds are mined, and about 80% of these are industrialdiamonds. They are separated from gem-quality diamonds through themilling process which uses running water, and th…en through visualsorting of the diamond-grade material that remains. (MORE)
