Does titanium set off metal detectors?

It may set off newer detectors but most older detectors wont catch it because of its low iron content.

What maintenance work can be done to extend the usefulness of metal fixtures?

regular painting extends life span of steel/metal product by reducing exposure to oxidizing (rusting). there are specific paints manufactured for prevention of oxidizing, these usually contain zinc or oxides.

preperation prior to painting is the key to effectiveness of the painting. a well prepared surface will result in the paited finish lasting significantly longer

Does iron powder set off metal detectors?

Disbursed over an area probably not. Localized in a bag or single location most assuredly. It is all about those gauss lines and if they are distrubed enough to trigger a response.

Whats the best metal for a sword?

When you are looking to buy a sword the best thing you want to do at first is think what you want to use it for. The reason you want to do that is so that you don't buy the wrong type of sword for what you really want. Believe me, I made that mistake and broke my first sword. So to make sure you don't make the same mistake I did, I am going to give you some advice.

First off I will tell you what each metal is for:

STAINLESS STEEL: Basically, the only reason you ever want to buy a stainless steel sword is either if you want it to break in half and cut you really bad, or if you are smart and know that it is ONLY for display and to look pretty for decoration.

CARBON STEEL: This metal is good for a nice edge that will stay on your sword and is what most would call, "a functional sword" and in fact, it is functional so if you are on a budget it is definitely the way to go.

FLEXIBLE STEEL: This metal is extremely good quality and will hold out a long time and even keep an edge fairly long. The only problem, IT IS EXPENSIVE! If you really want to go all out this is really the way to go because it is very flexible henceforth flexible steel.

I hope I made your choice easier and good luck! Buying a sword can be a hard choice so try to get more references also! If you are looking for swords try all around to find the sword you want also think about the kind of sword you want before you buy it! For instance, I prefer Japanese style katanas. Good luck! =)

I don't know if it is the best for making swords, but in a sword like a katana, I usually hear of Tamahagane being used. I was actually looking at other questions, like the strongest metal for a sword, and people say Tungsten since it's the strongest metal known, from what I've been reading, might be lies though.

Can common house mice bite through metal?

tin foil....sure but regular metal??? i don't think so not in Michigan anyhow. if you have something that's bitting through metal you might want to call pest control to look into the matter for you

* Mice have been known to chew through a metal pipe to get to water, it takes a lot of time, but it is possible.

When were metal swords invented?

Metal swords developed gradually from the scythe. The scythe is a farming tool used to harvest grain. It is a long, single edged blade attached to a wooden handle. Swords were developed indepentantly by different people on different continents. No one knows for sure what year they first appeared, but they were certainly around shortly after metal forging was invented in each of the civilizations that eventually had them. There are records and/or drawings of people having swords as far back as the ancient Egyptians. The styles and sizes of swords have developed differently and changed over time. The classic two edged, cross shaped sword that most people think of when the see or hear the word, developed around the year 800 AD in Western Europe. Most earlier swords looked more like macheties and usually had only one sharp edge.

How does a fingerprint detector works?

It is a visual detection unit. These are typically used in industry to detect defects in products that come off an assembly line (or similar). These devices basically compare two pictures. The pictures are converted to digital and then the resulting bytes are compared for similarities and differences.

How do you get metal through metal detectors?

In general, you can't get metal through metal detectors. Only the smallest bits of metal will not cause a metal detector to alarm. If the sensitivity of the detector is set too high, it may be possible to get a small piece of metal past the detector, but that is something that cannot be counted on.

How does flame detector works?

A flame detector is a fire protection device, which detects the flame in the place where it is fixed and issues an alarm thereby alerting nearby people to the danger of fire. In most of the manufacturing companies, furnace flame detector is used in order to detect and prevent fire. Flame detector responds either to radiant energy visible to the human eye or outside the range of human vision. Most flame detectors work either by optical flame detector or flame ionization detector but some of them use combination of both detectors.

Flame detector works at specific ranges, which uses optical sensors to record the incoming radiation at a particular wavelength. The energy radiated from the flame is electromagnetic radiation and it can be identified at various spectral ranges like UV, IR and VIS. Depending upon the sensor used there are number of flame detectors available they are infra red flame detectors, ultra violet flame detector, UV/IR, IR/IR and tripe IR spectral band detector. Flame detector has a cone of vision that defines the effective capability of sensing fire. It is inefficient for slow fires however it responds faster for rapidly developing fire like combustible gas and liquid. It is available in different shape and size.

How do metal detectors in an airport work?

A metal detector is really called a magnetometer (Magnet meter) .

A magnetometer produces a strong magnetic field. Any metal objects passing through the magnetic field will react with the magnetic field and begin to conduct a very slight electrical current. This process is called induction. These electrical currents cause their own much weaker magnetic fields. The magnetometer detects that new magnetic field and the interaction with the primary magnetic field it is producing. When the interaction reaches a certain per-determined threshold, the alarm is triggered. At this point officers will use hand-held magnetometers (known as wands) to pin-point the source of the alarm. The noise they make is an audible representation of the strength of the secondary magnetic fields produced by metal objects as the wand passes by.

Magnetometers can be so sensitive as to detect tooth fillings, titanium implants and other non-ferrous metals. Most metal detectors in airports are tuned so they are not triggered for tooth fillings or small metal implants like surgical pins. But they will be triggered by larger implants like knee replacements, hip implants, etc.

Contrary to folk lore, an airport magnetometer CAN detect non-ferrous (no iron, non magnetic) metals like titanium, brass and aluminum just fine. As long as the metal can conduct electricity (which is one of the properties of elements called metal) it can be detected by the device.

Anyone with a pacemaker should never go through the metal detector since the magnetic field can affect the electrical pulses generated by the pacemaker to keep the heart beating at a steady rate. Though highly unlikely, it is possible that a person with a pacemaker going though a magnetometer could go into cardiac arrest due to fibrillation. Simply tell the attendant that you have a pacemaker and they will do a hand search instead.

As long as it can conduct electricity it will be detected by a well-tuned magnetometer.

How does making aluminum foil demonstrate a metal's malleability?

The manufacturing process by which aluminum foil is made is a classic example of the malleability of metal. Malleability is the property of a metal that allows it to be worked or formed without it cracking. And aluminum is superb in this light. Aluminum foil is made from a big block of refined (pretty pure) aluminum, and this sucker is big. Hey, follow the link to the TechEBlog and watch the short video! It's got it all! From melting refined aluminum "pigs" to getting a big (big!) block of aluminum to rolling it out! Well worth the time and the (little) effort!
