New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center Is Urging a US Navy Veteran or Skilled Tradesman with Mesothelioma in New Hampshire to Call to Ensure they have the Nation's Top Lawyers Working on Their Compensation Claim

"As we would like to explain to a victim/their family there is a direct connection between the mesothelioma compensation settlement, and the skill of the team of lawyers advancing the financial claim.”

— New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Most diagnosed victims of mesothelioma who now live in New Hampshire probably were not exposed to asbestos there. In most instances the person with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure was probably exposed while serving in the US Navy or working at a shipyard in Maine. Veterans of the US Navy make up about one third of people who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in the US.

"The last thing we want to see is a person with diagnosed mesothelioma in New Hampshire to get shortchanged when it comes to financial compensation for this rare cancer. We put a huge emphasis on making certain a person with mesothelioma in New Hampshire or nationwide has on the spot access to some of the nation's top mesothelioma compensation lawyers with one call to 800-714-0303.

"As we would like to explain anytime to person with mesothelioma in New Hampshire, or their family there is a direct connection between the best possible mesothelioma compensation settlement, and the skill of the team of lawyers advancing the financial claim for the person with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure."
http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Compensation tips for a diagnosed US Navy Veteran, a manufacturing or skilled trades worker with mesothelioma in Iowa from the New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center:

#1."Do not fall for a less than truthful Internet ad about 'no lawsuit needed, billions recovered,' or federal claims center,' because most of these advertisements are less than honest.

2."The nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys will want to represent a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma because the compensation settlements can be so significant. Why hire a local inexperienced personal injury attorney when the nation's most elite mesothelioma attorneys will want to represent you-and get you a more significant financial compensation settlement result?

#3."Please do not impulsively hire a law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 once you retain a lawyer or law firm for a mesothelioma compensation claim it is virtually impossible to fire them."
http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center’s free services are available to a person with mesothelioma anywhere in New Hampshire including communities such as Manchester, Nashua, Concord, Dover, Rochester, Keene, Derry, or Portsmouth.

For the best possible treatment options in New Hampshire we strongly recommend the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital. Norris Cotton Cancer Center: https://cancer.dartmouth.edu

High risk occupations for asbestos exposure in New Hampshire include the US Navy, shipyard workers, manufacturing workers, electricians, welders, plumbers, machinists, mechanics, power plant workers, paper mill workers, auto/truck brake technicians and construction workers. http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Made in USA Spherical Graphite Changes Global Landscape

Cross Section view of purified spherical graphite. Edge planes effectively folded.

Purified Spherical Graphite made from Battery Minerals Flake Graphite. Made by Urbix Resources.

Urbix Resources producing remarkably high-quality spherical graphite particles: yield is over 75 percent, much higher than currently standard in the industry.

[We do] not use hydrofluoric acid or high-energy consuming graphite refining methods for li-ion battery cell anode production. This offers…advantages over petroleum-based synthetic graphite.”

— Adam Small, co-founder Urbix Resources

MESA, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Some of the world’s most important players in the energy storage industry came together in October at Graphite + Anodes 2018. The two-day event was part of Benchmark Minerals Week at Newport Beach, California. They were gathered to discuss new technologies and global supply chains.

One presenter at the event was David Flanagan, Managing Director of Battery Minerals (ASX: BAT) a publicly traded graphite mining development and minerals company dedicated to exploring for and developing graphite mineral deposits in Mozambique. During Flanagan’s talk, he showcased the successes the company has had with the proprietary purification and spheroidization techniques developed and applied by Urbix Resources at the company’s state-of-the-art laboratory in Mesa, Arizona.

Flanagan reported that Urbix had recently successfully purified graphite for Battery Minerals with a very good outcome, both for the environmentally friendly techniques that had been used and the purity of the results.

The tests were done on graphite sourced from Battery Minerals’ Montepuez Graphite Project in Mozambique and included all flake size fractions to >99.95% total graphitic carbon, then went on to produce remarkably high-quality spherical graphite particles with a yield in excess of 75 percent. This is an exciting outcome because standard spheroidization results in 30 to 40 percent yields. In addition, the high level of spherocity (not potato shaped), ideal D50 particle size distribution, and effective “folding” of the graphite edge planes add up to a very suitable candidate for the lithium-ion battery market. This is expected to result in longer total cycle life for the battery. The unique combination of Urbix’s low-cost purification, Flanagan told those assembled, and high-yield spheroidization results in a very real economic advantage, even over China who dominates more than 90 percent of this portion of the graphite market today.

“At Urbix, we have moved far beyond antiquated refining methods and focused on a sustainable future,” says Urbix co-founder, Adam Small. “The Urbix method does not use hydrofluoric acid or high-energy consuming graphite refining methods for li-ion battery cell anode production. This offers profound economic and environmental advantages over petroleum-based synthetic graphite.”

In addition to the work Urbix has produced for Battery Minerals, the company has proven their purification technology on natural graphite materials sourced from every producing continent, potentially comprising one third of the world’s current and future natural graphite production.

“The anode materials we are producing are exceptional and at a significantly lower cost,” says Urbix CTO, Dr. Palash Gangopadhyay. “We compare and validate our material qualities with proven characterization techniques and side-by-side with materials made by the industry giants in China.”

Already working closely with the US Department of Energy, Urbix is on track to become one of the most prominent providers of li-ion battery grade anode materials in the United States and abroad. Further vetting and supply chain optimization is now underway with Urbix’s global partners.

Energy Sector Breakthrough: Fugitive Gas Detection/Cloud Based IoT_Gas Activated Systems at Texas Tech University

TTU Oilfield Technology Center validates state-of-the-art technology: multi-species gas monitoring and control in the energy sector.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Petroleum Engineering Department at Texas Tech University conducted testing on the Gas Activated Systems™ suite of cloud-based fugitive hydrocarbon detection tools. DetectSys™–a system utilizing breakthrough multi-species gas quantification in a single sensor–complete with geolocation and long-range wireless communications, was exposed to methane in field-encountered conditions. The immediate output was observed via the PreventSys™ platform via real-time dashboards and captured in the cloud-based time-series database.

Gas Activated Systems uses its advanced Industrial Internet of Things infrastructure that includes state-of-the-art MEMS-based, silicon sensor technologies to identify and quantify multi-species gas emissions at oil and gas exploration and production sites, refineries, storage and transmission facilities. Through this system, gas emissions can be monitored, mapped and analyzed 24/7 in real-time, providing the intelligence necessary for immediate remediation of methane and other combustible emission sources.

Oil and gas companies require methods to monitor derogatory events throughout their processes. Upstream, midstream and downstream, there are significant threats to life and property. Preventative and predictive solutions will increase reliability and maintenance, production optimization, field development, collaboration and safety. Unintended gas releases on oil or gas production sites contribute not only to the hydrocarbon emissions of collective Greenhouse Gases, but also pose immediate risk for explosions when in contact with combustion sources. Currently there is no system that can accurately report a plurality of hydrocarbon LEL (lower explosive limit) concentrations using a single sensor. The MEMS sensor provided by Gas Activated Systems allows for speed, compactness, economy and robustness of service.

“Our platform provides explosive and combustible gas detection of a multitude of gases using a single sensor, complete with time-series database population for immediate and forensic discovery. The cloud-based structure allows for 24/7, real-time alerting, autonomous action and remediation” stated Michael Bryan, Gas Activated Systems CEO.

The tests were conducted at the Oilfield Technology Center, an extended lab functioning oil field located on the University’s East Research Campus. Methane was manually released and then verified via infrared camera. The sensors were evaluated for their prompt reading and reporting of correct gas LEL. The resulting data demonstrated that the Gas Activated Systems hydrocarbon sensing provided cloud reporting faster than the standard individual hand-held (local-only reporting) tools used in the industry today. “We have demonstrated that Gas Activated Systems outperforms speed of detection of industry-standard conventional detectors,” says Dr. Ekarit Panacharoensawad, Assistant Professor, Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering. The second part of the product validation was systematic testing of DetectSys, alternately applying precision calibration methane and propane. Panacharaoensawad added, “The Gas Activated Systems’ units provided accurate %LEL readings, again beating the industry-standard handheld device by nearly 50%.”

Denny Bullard, Instructor at the Department of Petroleum Engineering and a 50 year member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers adds, “Using the LoRaWAN wireless, the data communications were measured at full strength back to the gateway even at distances beyond 500 feet.”

Located on the east side of Lubbock, TX just outside the city limit, OTC provides class room training and research space for both academic and industry needs. It has a 4000 foot test well equipped with a pumping unit connected with a flowline to a surface tank battery for demonstration and training purposes. Furthermore, high pressure separator and gas processing units including a line heater, vapor recovery unit, high pressure and low pressure natural gas compressors, and a vapor recovery tower are part of the OTC that is used for training and other academic needs.
