Pledge: Liquid Nitrogen
We are looking at purchasing some Liquid Nitrogen, preferably in time for the 12/05/2013 party
Pledge leader: Oni
Maintenance: Volunteer needed
Training / safety: Volunteer needed
- Basically, we want something along the lines of one Dewar as a one off delivery. We also need a set of gloves to handle the stuff.
- £130.00 plus VAT per delivery up to 50 litres for the Nitrogen - £156
- £??? for handling gloves. They need to be closed cuff, leather or thick material and preferably elbow length.
- £??? for a lock. Probably not a lot I (Oni) would say.
- £??? for non-sealable thermos flasks (large and small) for the carrying of the nitrogen.
Actions / Information
- http://stores.biochem.uiowa.edu/Pages/ln2msds.htm - current safety handling
- Secure a supplier for the correct gloves: http://www.boconline.co.uk/en/products-and-supply/cryogenic-equipment/cryogenic-protection/hand-protection/hand-protection.html
- At present, it is estimated that 50L of LN2 will covert to 30.5 cubic metres; around 5% of the volume of floor one.
- Check if the Dewar still has a functional vacuum
- Wheel upstairs and lock into place
- Liaise with Mansfield and get a date set
- Sort out a training session for these wanting to use it
- Place safety notices on cage
- Make tasty meats
- Make ice-cream
