    Default ot----Chernobyl graphite

    yep---its the real deal

    Chernobyl nuclear event occurred April 1986

    one year later corporation"M"--4 miles from my operation purchased 20+ metric tonnes --grade B nuclear graphite--which was stored in rail car just outside of 30 km exclusion zone at time of reactor 4 incident

    well-plans change--and M corp did a deal with Glassmaster Hank--local creator of Mount St Helens volcanic glass for the graphite---and he has around 600 lbs remaining which he offers for sale--zero radioactivity assured--

    photo is of 10x10x3.5 in slab --if interested please send pm with contact number which I will relay to Hank

    also imaged is note from First Lady Nancy Reagan--she acquired dozens of Hanks glass creations molded in graphite for ornaments and gifts--years prior to Chernobyl

    What is the price?

    Might be good for electrolytic rust removal.

    What possible use could it be for electrolytic rust removal?

    Electrodes.

    From my understanding, steel electrodes need to be cleaned regularly. Graphite ones do not.

    Lay a slab flat on a table. Then place your coffee mug on top. Will keep it warm.

    local photographic supply company found out cheap Birch plywood from 1000's of miles away was slightly radioactive causing fogging issues with photographic film
    .
    basically the trees in the area absorbed higher than normal radioactive stuff and it was in the wood. didnt glow in the dark or anything you would need a gieger counter to measure.
    .
    also story of in South America at a junk yard owner saw a glowing small metal piece and took it home to show family. turned out it was radioactive used in medical scanner to treat cancer patients and normally it was in a lead box with small door to let out radioactive stuff for localized cancer treatment. whole family had serious radioactive exposures. not sure if all slowly died but radation poisoning aint a painless way to go. no cure once exposed enough
    .
    many big junk yards have gieger counters just for that now to scan trucks. border petrol got scanners that can tell if a human driver took radioactive stuff for medical scans and if still in the persons body. wont let you through the border if your radioactive.

    The trash burner/power plant I worked at had "radioactivity detectors" through which all trucks had to pass through on their way to the tipping floor.

    Our biggest problem was "medical wastes" from the hospitals. Not infrequently the trucks would be held up while a remediation team came out and went through the truck bag by bag item by item until the offending radioactive something was found.

    Certainly hazardous pay rating for that. Imagine all the scalpels, needles, even blood-soaked bandaging and sponges. And all had to be examined with hand-held detectors.

    The biggest culprit was usually an empty bottle of radioactive fluid used in cancer therapy. A FOUR OUNCE glass bottle usually with a black screw cap. If the cap was not on it then the cap would have to be found too.

    Even finding the something was no reprieve. There might be a second something.

    The solution stay clean as well and you can see the condition of the part as the process proceeds.
