Hagar, what's the power factor of those aluminum retorts up at Kittimatt?? The arcs have inductors to sustain them? Sandy Sandy Cameron you hit one of Hagars sore points ---- a NERVE. Kemano # 1. and Kemano # 2. ------ Alcan is getting the upper hand. ---shit. Loren you are getting an inside look a the magic world of lectricity. After all The weak point of Rabbits is lectrical. To make Aluminium takes a LOT og electrcal power ---I have the exact amount for a Rabbit. Sandy the simple answer ? ---I do not know. ----but I do not think it an arc process. The way I remember ? --it is an electrolytic process --and it tales about 10 Kw/hr of juice to make a pound of Aluminium.-----And where would Rabbits be without ?. By the way I have it FIRST hand ( ok second)----it is a shitty place to work. -----Good money but shit. Sandy I did get involved in big BIG arc furnaces --- Ammeter clibrated in Mega-amps 3 phase. No power factor correction that I remember. As far as DC towns ? --yes I lived in one. Interesting experience ---Rabbits will run away but it aint nothing compared to a bakery mixing machine loosing the field while running. DC notors loosing the field ? ------they will throw the windings all over the place. you may quote me. BUT to use the magic powers of lectrcity to kill people ? --THAT is where I draw the line in ----the ---the ---sandbox ? Hagar. PS : Stupid bastards.
