Full of first-hand bills of ambition, greed, and encouraged engineering, this heritage of the private desktop revolution takes readers contained in the cutthroat international of Commodore. ahead of Apple, IBM, or Dell, Commodore used to be the 1st desktop producer to industry its machines to the general public, promoting an anticipated 22 million Commodore 64s. these halcyon days have been tumultuous, in spite of the fact that, due to the expectancies and unsparing strategies of founder Jack Tramiel. Engineers and bosses with the corporate among 1976 and 1994 percentage their thoughts of the groundbreaking moments, hovering enterprise highs, and beautiful worker turnover that got here with being on most sensible within the early days of the microcomputer undefined. This up to date moment variation contains extra interviews and first-hand fabric from significant Commodore figures like advertising and marketing guru equipment Spencer, chip clothier invoice Mensch, and Commodore co-founder Manfred Kapp.

The power input to the mill is a direct function of cube of rotor speed, As a result the rotor speed is expected to have the maximum effect on the milling kinetics. When the rotor speed was increased from 2000 to 2600 rpm at the feed flow rate of 4 ml/see, a significant increase in the surface area was achieved. Under the conditions of 4 ml/see flowrate and 2600 rpm rotor speed, the specific area of the feed can be doubled from 4 m2/g to 8 m2/g in 60 minutes. The particle size distributions (PSD) of the milled powders follow the same trend as that of the specific surface area.

The particle size distribution has been determined routinely by two techniques: I) sedigraph, 2) microtrac. These two instruments combined give a reasonable picture of the size distribution of the particles. We measure dlo, dso, and dlo0 for a general comparison from batch to batch. The surface area is determined by BET gas adsorption using N2 as the gas. These two combined measurements give a reasonable state of the milled powder along with the oxygen values.
