ZINC SILICATE TANK COATING CHEMICAL TANKERS-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL




ZINC SILICATE TANK LINING

If you read and understand this piece your zinc tanks will last 30 years minimum—more than the effective life of any ship.  


If you do not know the pH value scale  the coating will get damaged in one voyage and it will cost the company a fortune by way of grit blasting the whole tank and recoating. It is only resistant for pH values between 6 to 9. 


Zinc silicate has high resistance to Aromatics and alcohols ( not good for epoxy ) and Ketones

Zinc silicate is an inorganic paint. This automatically means it is insoluble in organic solvents . It is durable, heat resistant and abrasion resistant. It  has outstanding mechanical strength and provides galvanic protection.

The coating thickness is 80 microns--- single airless spray coat on a good gritblasted surface.  As long as the zinc and iron are in contact, atmospheric oxidation spares the iron and effects the zinc. Thick paint spray will crack especially if not continiously stirred.

Cargoes tend to be aDsorbed rather than aBsorbed. It has no reaction with solvent/water mixtures. Dedicated methanol carriers are zinc silicate coated. They can be loaded with methanol again and again without ventilation. Venting is no so crucial as for epoxy tanks whose coatings softens. However it is better if tanks are ventilated. As sometimes wall waSh will show HC/color. Vent for 1 or 2 days to eliminate this problem.

Zinc Silicate salts are produced throughout the active life of the coating which appear as white patches. This is normal and will not cause a problem uless it is extracted by a wall wash surveyor. Even if these white salts are removed they will be regenerated over a period of time. Small damages to coating are self healing by electrochemical reaction.

Since the coating cannot handle pH values between 9 and 14 , remember LAC and caustic are extremely harmful. So in zinc tanks use 0.05% Teepol/ Genepol. Special acid cleaners like bufferclean 5.5 ( citric acid of pH 5.5 )can be used. Bufferclean 5.5 removes all zinc white salts and brings it down like snow fall.  Buffer solution resists any change of its pH value due to dilution or an addition of solution of acid/ alkali. The process by which H+ or OH- ions are removed so that pH remains constant is known as buffer action.

Please remember dried detergent can also cause white patches. For tankcleaning 80 deg C water temp can be used. Zinc can tolerate higher temperatures than epoxy.  However due to its porosity zinc tanks should first be cleaned at moderate temp and then only cleaning temp can be increased. Tallow/ animal fat when heated increases in acidity near heating coils. Also esters , alcohols, amines, chlorinated and brominated compounds should not have moisture content greater than 0.01% ( 100 ppm ). Molasses when diluted especially by bad quality fresh water from lakes etc create acids within 24 hours which attack coating. Continious exposure to salt/ FW reduces life of coating. Toluene and Xylene are good degreasers.

Zinc paint is resistant to : Phenols and cresols, aromatic hydrocarbons BTX, alcohols and ketones, CTC, EDC, Trichloroethylene, and esters like amyl and ethyl acetate provided tank surfaces are free of moisture. Resistant to Acetone, Acrylonitrile, Ethanol, Methanol, IPA, MEK, Methyl Acrylate, VAM, Butyl acetate, Ekta Solve, Adiponitrile etc.

Zinc paint is not resistant to:  Acetic acid, Alkaline Glycol Monoalkyl Ether, Diethanolamine, Diethyl Suphate, Brake fluid, Vinyl Acetate, Pentanoic acid, Triethanolamine, Nonyl Phenol, Ethyenediamine, Ethyl Hexanoic acid, Polyethylene Polyamine, Ethatholamine, Aviation turbine fuel,  alkalies greater than pH 9, acids less than pH 6.

Fatty acids of veg/ animal oils attack zinc silicate paint which can cause zinc to shed contaminating cargo. Amines water content if >500 ppm ( 0.05%) can cause alkali attack. So to prevent water contamination tank must be dry and nitrogen blanketed. Never use hot water for precleaning veg/ animal oils in zinc tanks because they have FFA (free fatty acids ). The manufacturers of zinc silicate coating describe a max FFA content of 2.5 as the limit. In practice this limit is way too high. Zinc-silicate-coatedtanks are not used for crude edible fats and oils, unless the acid value is 1 or under .

Recirc of veg/ animal oil in coated tank is a must to prevent sedimentation and also to equalize the FFA content between the upper and lower layers. Since zinc lining is porous prolonged pre cleaning with ambient water is advisable after drying oils before introducing chemicals.

FFA content may increase rapidly when cleaning is prematurely stopped. Semi-drying vegetable and animal oils react with oxygen to form a varnish like polymeric layer which is very difficult to remove. If there is delay in washing drying oils to prevent the oxidized varnish from forming on the bulkheads the air should be removed the empty tank.

If a zinc silicate tank has been attacked you can see a thin layer of white dust on the surface OR the coating gives a porous appearance. White salts caused due to alkali PH>9 attack are insoluble calcium and magnesium salts. Only bufferclean 5.5 can remove such white salts and the tank gets a fresh appearance. Never allow salt to dry on the coating after sea water wash. Salt electrolyte makes the coating sacrificial.

Zinc silicate tanks are not considered suitable for continious immersion in water. The surface is porous and cargo invades into pores and capillaries. Cleaning is similar to regeneration of an aDsorber bed. This is done by heating to greater than BP. Unlike epoxy de aDsorbsion occurs quite fast. Methanol removes non volatile matter from the pores/ capillaries.

Sometimes certain polymerizing cargoes are inhibited by ammonia derived stabilizers. Pl ensure that this cargo is not stowed in zinc silicate tanks---lest you get a polymerized tank.
It is usual for MEG FG shippers to state in writing that zinc tanks are not suitable. There is no harm if you are able to pass the wall wash and the first foot. The discharge port samples will be good enough.

Zinc painting or touching is not usually done at sea as sea is not a perfect place. However I do remember 100% gritblasting ( 140 tons of grit to SA2.5 )and zinc silicate airless spray painting 2 cargo tanks on a pacific voyage in perfect conditions using shipstaff round the clock. The Sigma Silgauard paint involved was a 2 component fresh water moisture curing zinc rich  ethyl silicate coating. To achieve 80 microns 9 sq metre per litre paint is required.     Binder to zinc powder ratio is 3 :1.  Zinc powder is added to the binder ( never vice versa )while continiously mechanically agitating using a pneumatic stirrer. Then strain the mixture through a 40 mesh screen just in case some lumps are present. The paint must be agitated continiously during the application. If the application temp is greater than 30 deg use 10% by volume of thinner. Potlife  20 deg c is just 6 hours ---so do not mix in large quantities.

Zinc silicate coating is an anti-corrosive paint system that is based on zinc dust (86 percent  wt)  with  some  additives  and  a  binder.  Zinc  silicate  coatings  are inherently porous, which results in a variety of cleaning problems. It is believed that the cargo migrates into the pores and capillaries. Zinc silicate coatings have good resistance to solvents, but are not resistant to strong acids and bases outside 6 to 9 pH.

Volatile cargoes are desorbed very fast, non-volatile oil-like cargoes are retained. The cleaning of the coating is similar to the regeneration of an adsorber bed. This is typically performed by heating preferably close to or if possible above the boiling point of the liquid. Desorption takes place relatively fast, provided that the required parameters (temperature and medium to transport the substance) prevail.

The removal of volatile liquids (measurable vapour pressure, low boiling point) can be achieved relatively easily by pre-cleaning with warm to hot water or steaming, depending on the volatility of the liquid.

Non-volatile liquids (negligible vapour pressure, high boiling point) are extremely difficult  to  remove,  as  a  very  high  temperature woulhave  to  be  reached to evaporate the liquid (e.g. mineral oils, vegetable oils). The cargo must therefore be dissolved in the pores and capillaries, for which a cleaner with a high solvency power (methanol) is typically required. The major difficulty when dissolving a non- volatile cargo during tank cleaning is the relatively short contact time of the liquid. The ideal solution is to transport a cargo with high solvency power and a low cleanliness requirement.

In certain cases, especially for zinc silicate coatings contaminated with non-volatile residues, it is necessary to use solvent steaming to remove tenacious residues. The most common solvent employed for this purpose is toluene. The concentrations needed for effective cleaning of non-volatile residues will always exceed the low electrical conductivity of toluene, thereby resulting in a flammable mixture in the tank. The tank must be inerted down to an oxygen content of less than 5 percent prior to toluene steaming in order to eliminate the risk of explosion

DISADVANTAGES:
Retains non volatile oil like cargoes.
Adsorbed residues can be dissolved by wall wash test.
Residues can cause contamination of next or after next cargo.
Only zinc safe chemicals can be used for tankcleaning


REMEMBER-- A  "ZINC SAFE TANK"  CLEANING CHEMICAL IS NOTHING BUT A LIQUID WITH A pH OF WITHIN THE RANGE 5.5 TO 9.5 --  ANYTHING BEYOND THIS RANGE AND YOU CAN KISS THE COATING GOODBYE.  


Once i had taken over a zinc silicate coated chemical tanker-- the muffs had destroyed all the coating. When you use DI water or DEMI water generators with two cylinders ( not MIXED bed ) you should know what you are doing.  If the acidic output pH is less than 6 , the coating gets permanently damaged.



Filtered water is first passed through cation exchange cylinder which removes CA2+/ MG2+ ( water hardness ions ) cations from it and an equivalent amount of H+ ions are released into the water. The water is now softened.  (THIS ACIDIC WATER CAN DESTROY YOUR ZINC SILICATE COATING WHICH CANNOT TAKE pH LESS THAN 6.)

Then this water is passed through an anion exchange cylinder which removes SO42- CL- ( chlorides ) anions from it and an equivalent amount of OH- ions are released into the water. The chlorides are now removed. The water is now called de ionized water or de mineralized water.

  2. Sir, hope you still maintain this blog page. Apparently one of our vessel as what you said "white dust appearance" after re-circulating with BC 5.5. Since the terms is the coating has been attacked, there's no solution?

  3. Dear sir,

    In one of the ship EDC was loaded in epoxy coated tanks.All load port samples including tanks & composite was found sound.At discharge port cargo samoles found with yellow /red colour with iron contamination.What could be reasons for failure
    With Kind Regards

    1. hi ag,

      EDC causes the epoxy coating to swell and become soft.

      any epoxy blister containing will burst and cause EDC to mix with water which then rapidly corrodes the steel.

  5. hi jorge ,

    first of all CONGRATULATIONS for becoming a ship captain.

    i am proud of my INCA MAAN ..

    zinc silicate can take only tank cleaning chemicals between 6 to 9 pH. ( VERY IMPORTANT )

    This means you cannot use strong acid like phosphoric acid --or strong alkali like caustic .

    Find out the wall wash specs --for you could be loading industrial ethanol .

    zinc silicate also has very POROUS surface -- so you need to do plain sea water butterworth at temp at least 15 deg higher than the MP of tallow. zinc silicate can resists temps as high as 80 deg c.

    MOST IMPORTANT : FOR FIRST PRE-CLEAN USE AMBIENT WATER DUE TO FREE FATTY ACIDS.

    use 0.05% teepol injection ( or any suitable ZINC SAFE tank cleaning chemical ) washing later -- like how we used to do from LUB OIL TO ETHANOL on fairchem colt.

    if the tanks are having too many white salts use BUFFERCLEAN 5.5 pH for a final recirc which will bring all OLD white calcium /magnesium salts down like snow.

    remove acidity with sea water -- and then only then use FW rinse.

    steam to remove chlorides , according to WW specs.

    YOU HAVE DONE BIGGER THINGS WHEN YOU WERE MY CHIEF OFFICER -- PIECE OF CAKE.

    hi s,

    time to have a OBJECTIVE and DISPASSIONATE look at osho.

    this man was indeed intelligent. he does NOT need valium / nitrous oxide which instead of helping will degrade his consciousness.

    cannabis can increase your consciousness.

    PEA BRAINED HILLY BILLY YANK AND JOHN BULL CANNOT GUAGE OSHO.

    Osho revelled in making a CHOOT of of his white skinned devotees.

    he would tell them black is white in the morning and in the evening he would tell them white is black.

    the MANDH BUDDHI white skinned man is at the lowest gross plane of wisdom.

    the men of wisdom knows what must EVAPORATE must CONDENSE .

    this is the dance of shiva/ vishnu/ brahma

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/05/dvaita-vedanta-of-sanatana-dharma-or.html

    the white man followed osho because he has RAW animal magnetism.

    i give leadership lesson to my chief offiicers preparing them for ship's command.

    when any officer leaves my ship for marriage i also tell him HOW TO FUCK HIS WIFE - so that she does NOT become a chutney mary -- making her pickle john husband make bed tea for her and wash her bloodied undies.

    HOW TO FUCK A WOMAN IS BELOW-

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/09/muringakai-quantum-medicine-and.html

    when a woman is fucked well she does NOT care to write about her PHOREN jaunts in her blogs to impress her BLOG DOSTS .

    HEY BLOG DOSTS - I HAVE BEEN TRAVELLING TO ZURICH, PARIS - NOW I AM BACK TO COMPLETE MY PORN BOOK STARTING WITH S !

    getting back-

    one chief officers disagreed with my ANIMAL MAGNETISM leader virtue thing.

    so i told him to tell me one DRY BORING topic over which i would speak to my full officers/ crew next day for 4 hours continuously--while STANDING ON FEET erect -in a line .

    if one crew member even moved - i would give him an agreed amount of beer/cigarettes .

    he chose RISK ASSESSMENT which is more boring than boring-totally technical.

    what i spoke is now a blog post ( condensed form ).

    first the speaker has to exude magnetism ( like OSHO ) -secondly if he can , he must hold the interest.

    speakers like K Krishnamurty could NOT hold his audience's interest for more than 5 minutes -- as HILLY BILLY YANKS were NOT perceptive enough to understand the brillaince of his words. but OSHO spoke in small sentences like automatic rifle bursts.

    THIS PLANET KNEW ONLY "STATIC" RISK ASSESSMENT .

    IT WAS A MAN NAMED VADAKAYIL WHO INTRODUCED "DYNAMIC " RISK ASSESSMENT.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/dynamic-risk-assessment-on-chemical.html

    I STRETCHED THE POST ABOVE IN A LECTURE OF FOUR HOURS - NOT ONE SAILOR MOVED OR LEANED BACK ON THE WALL 12 INCHES BEHIND HIM.

    I HAVE DONE THIS FOUR HOURS SPEECH THING AT LEAST 8 TIMES - TO PROVE TO MY CHIEF OFFICER -- ON DIFFERENT SHIPS- WITH DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES.

    DYNAMIC risk assessment was always done in my mann mandir - before ant critical task. People would ask me why I am doing something totally opposite . If he could understand the flammability composition diagram I MAY tell him--otherwise it was NOT worth it.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/flammability-composition-diagram.html

    above few sentences ARE THE MOST VALUABLE AMONG MY 51587 COMMENTS TILL TODAY-- so understand this -nobody on this planet can explain better ( this is NOT a boast so read the line again ) .

    ug krishnamurthy ( a wannabe J ) was an ordinary man. J krishna murthy was on a higher plane.

    Jiddu left a legacy, but nothing of this sort for UG, who lacked the self conviction and self confidence.
    .
    UG was volatile and that too on a shaky foundation, and hyper-fragile Parveen Babi who accepted his a her guru, was catalyzed to self destruction. UG died bitter and alone- he could NOT rein in his inner devils.

  7. HERE IS AN ADVISE TO MODI -

    A LEADER MUST KNOW HOW TO CONTROL FAKE NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA.

    TAKE THIS FROM A LEADER OF MEN , 30 YEARS AS A SHIP CAPTAIN . .

    MY FIRST 9 YEARS OF COMMAND WAS IN INDIAN SHIPPING COMPANY SCI . . .

    I GREW UP IN THE COMPANY AND I KNEW HOW THE CREW / OFFICERS PUT THE CAPTAIN ON THE BACKFOOT -- BY INSINUATING THAT HE MADE MONEY ON FOOD . . .

    TO BE FRANK, MOST OF THESE ALLEGATIONS WERE TRUE.

    COMPANY GAVE OUT A CIRCULAR TO FORM MESS COMMITTEES ON ALL SHIPS , WITH A MEETING EVERY MONTH AND A REGISTER FOR COMPLAINTS.

    IN EVERY MESS COMMITTEE MEETING CREW/ OFFICERS WOULD THROW SHIT ON THE CAPTAINs FACE -- THE COMPLAINT REGISTER WOULD BE FULL OF FOUL ABUSE , BAD LANGUAGE AND SLIMY INNUENDO.

    TO BE FRANK, WHEN YOU HAVE A CREW OF 60 IT IS DIFFICULT TO KEEP ALL HAPPY. PUNJABIS DO NOT WANT SAMBHAR, TAMILAINS DO NOT WANT PARATHA AND SO ON.

    ONE FINE DAY CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL TOOK OVER COMMAND OF A SHIP , WHERE HE WAS SECOND IN COMMAND AFTER A MONTH OF LEAVE.

    I KNEW THE TROUBLE MAKERS-- THE STAGNANT CATEGORY LIKE ELECTRICAL OFFICER/ PURSER/ CHIEF ENGINEER WHO HAD NO MORE PROMOTIONS.

    I CALLED FOR A MESS COMMITTEE MEETING IN ADVANCE ON MY TIME TABLE.

    AS USUAL THE RABBLE ROUSERS STARTED OFF --WE WANT THIS , WE WANT THAT-- WE THINK SO AND SO.

    I GOT UP FROM MY CHAIR AND TOLD LOUD AND CLEAR-

    I WANT TO HEAR I NOT WE

    I WANT TO HEAR I WANT THIS, I WANT THAT, I THING SO AND SO.

    AFTER I SIT DOWN ON THIS CHAIR AGAIN, IF I HEAR THE WORLD WE AGAIN , IT WILL GO AGAINST HIM. THERE IS NO SAFETY IN NUMBERS-- ALL ARE ON THEIR OWN STARTING FROM NOW-

    AND I BANGED MY PALM ON THE TABLE-- WITH A EAR SPLITTING THUDDDDDDDD.

    YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN EVERYBODYs FACES.

    NOBODY DARED TO UTTER A WORD .

    THEY ALL KNEW I WAS THE COMPANYs BLUE EYED BOY ...

    THEN I TOOK THE OLD COMPLAINT REGISTER -- TORE IT UP AND SUBSTITUTED THE COMPLAINT RESISTER WITH A SUGGESTION REGISTER., ADDRESSED TO CAPTAIN AJIT VADAKAYIL.

    I SAID--

    WHATEVER YOU WRITE HERE , WILL BE ADDRESSED TO ME, THE CAPTAIN --NOT THIN FUCKIN AIR.

    YOU CAN WRITE WHAT YOU WANT-- I EXPECT YOU TO LOOK AHEAD , NOT BEHIND .

    YOU HAVE TO SIGN EVERY ENTRY .

    NO ANONYMOUS ENTRY WILL BE ACCEPTED. EVERY SENTENCE WILL BE ADDRESSED TO ME ALONE.

    AND THEN I LOOKED AT THE CHIEF STEWARD AND CHIEF COOK -- I WANT GOOD FOOD. GET ORAL POSITIVE FEEDBACK DAILY FROM THE OFFICERS AND CREW. AND I WANT TO HEAR THAT DAILY . . LOOK IN THE REGISTER DAILY. I WILL SEE THE REGISTER ONLY ONCE A MONTH.

    MY SHIP NEVER HAD A PROBLEM.

    AFTER 3 MONTHS THE CHIEF STEWARD ASKED ME-- DO YOU HYPNOTISE OR DO SOME MAGIC ?

    YES-- LEADERS MUST KNOW HOW TO LEAD.

    MR NARENDRA MODI -- LEARN HOW TO BE A LEADER .

    I COULD MAKE PEOPLE STRIP , IF I WANTED -- THIS IS MAGIC.

    I AM A LIVING LEGEND AT SEA , BECAUSE MY SHIPS NEVER FAILED AN INSPECTION.

    THIS IS VERY HARD ON CHEMICAL TANKERS WHERE YOU HAVE MORE THAN 30 TANKS AND EVERY TANK GOES THROUGH WALL WASH TESTS.

    WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR MY UNIQUE SUCCESS?

    I HAD THE CAPABILITY TO ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSE.

    MY BRAIN WENT WHERE NO HUMAN BRAIN HAS EVER BEEN BEFORE-- AND MOST OF THE TIME IT WAS NOT EVEN MY FIELD OF EXPERTISE.

    BUT ALL AT SEA AND ASHORE KNEW , CAPTAIN WILL FIND THE ROOT CAUSE-- AND COME WITH 100% SOLUTIONS

    WHEN SHIPS BROKE DOWN AT SEA , AND ENGINES COULD NOT BE RESTARTED --THEM BOSSES ASHORE WOULD SEND A DISTRESS MESSAGE ( OSTENSIBLE ) TO ALL SHIPS IN THE FLEET -- BUT SECRETLY THEY SEND IT ONLY TO MY SHIP. MY FANS ASHORE TOLD ME THIS.

    THEY KNOW MY CHIEF ENGINEER DOES NOT HAVE THE BRAINS TO EVEN DARE TO REPLY ( SHOWS TOTAL LACK OF COMPETENCE ) BUT CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WOULD REPLY, WITHIN 5 MINUTES

    YOU DO NOT BECOME A LIVING LEGEND AT SEA JUST LIKE THAT .

    LIKE AISHWARYA RAI SAID" YOU MUST BE WORTH IT"

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/naive-sailor-low-sulphur-fuels-capt.html

    I DARE ANY ENGINEER ON THIS PLANET TO EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT I HAVE SAID IN THE POST ABOVE --ANY FUCKIN' ENGINEER MARINE OR SHORE.

    COME ON, TAKE CAPT VADAKAYIL ON, YOU MOTHER FUCKERS !!

    CAN ANY ENGINE EXPERT ON THIS PLANET IMAGINE IN HIS MANN MANDIR HOW THE PISTON GOES UP AND DOWN ?

    KARKE DEKH !

    Captain,

    A very nice Theyyam performance in Kasargod, Kerala -

    "Pottan Theyyam At Pallam-AruthuVazhikkal Tharavad 2013"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO_EepaJ6s8


    Very very similar to Tulu people's Bhuta Kola.

    It is a great thing that you revelaed the truth that the offering is of red water made of lime and turmeric and NOT red fowl blood.

    hi a,

    ON CHEMICAL TANKERS ONCE I WAS FORCED TO WASH A TANK WHICH CONTAINED CAUSTIC POTSASH

    I SAID I WONT DO IT AS THE TANK WILL GET TATOOED BLOOD RED

    THEY SAID NEVER MIND

    I WASHED --THEY SEND A SHORE BOSS TO WATCH

    AFTER THE TANK BECAME RED ( STAINLESS STEEL ) I HEARD THE INDIAN ENGINEER BOSS EXPLAINING TO HIS BOSSES ASHORE --ABOUT THE RED SHADE OF PAAN IN THE MOUTH

    Turmeric is a reddish-yellow rhizome. Turmeric has a pigment known as xanthophylls, which lends the yellow colour to it. It also has a pigment called as carotene, which is reddish orange in colour.

    When the carotene pigment gets more active than the xanthophylls ( which gets suppressed ) turmeric turns red. Slaked lime is nothing but calcium hydroxide which is basic in nature.

    AFTER THIS INCIDENT I COULD TELL BY BOSSES SUN RISES IN THE WEST--AND THEY WOULD BELIEVE

    THE RED COLOUR OF THE TATOOED STAINLESS STEEL TANK WOULD NOT GO--AND THEY HAD TO CAJOLE AND SWEET TALK A BAAAAD VADAKAYIL

    OR THESE RED TANKS WOULD BE REJECTED FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS, AND THE COMPANY WOULD COME DOWN

    1. hi jb,

      I NEARLY GOT MURDERED !

      #########

      Vajralepa, which means coatings as strong as thunder bolt.

      It is basically the strongest cement ever. It will never be exceeded .

      Ingredients :-
      Six different sap of trees which grows on Western Ghats
      Pre-vulcanised rubber ( cellulose polymer crosslinked with zinc)
      Acacia gum ( exported as Arabic gum )
      Kaolin clay ( Aluminium Silicate hydroxide )
      Powdered volcanic gravel
      Fine river sand
      Granite aggregate
      Cows milk
      Coconut water
      Kanjee ( rice gruel water )
      Raw kerala banana
      Molasses/ jaggery
      Slaked lime
      Diamond powder ( only used on roofs of temples - Astabandha )

      WE CARRY KAOLIN SLURRY ON CHEMICAL TANKERS

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/clay-slurries-on-chemical-tankers-capt.html

      THE WHITE MAN LEARNT ABOUT VULCANISED RUBBER IN INDIA AND THEN PATENTED IT IN THEIR OWN NAMES .

      WE USED ZINC IN BRASS ALLOYS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS .

      6200 years ago Charaka Samhita, described how to make a metal which, when oxidized, produces pushpanjan ( zinc oxide ) meant for open gaping wounds

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/fathers-of-surgery-and-medicine-4200-bc.html

      IN THE POST BELOW , I NARRATE HOW I REALY GOT PASTED FOR ASKING A YOUNG BURKHA CLAD WOMAN TO SQUEEZE SOME MOTHERs MILK INTO A GLASS - PSSSSSS PSSSS PSSSSSS.

      DON’T TRY THIS-YOU MAY NOT LIVE TO NARRATE THE STORY

    2. Wow, thank you for the prompt reply captain. Yes I will be careful hehe.

      I'm a mining engineering student here at the PH. I found out your blog last year on Newton-Calculus Theif (first post that I read). Captain after reading that I felt a sense of clarity like crisp water. All of those seemingly nonsense subjects like trigonometry, algebra, geometry, etc., now makes a lot of sense, it does matter (which of course all the faculty in high school and college don't have any idea what they are teaching!).

      After that first post I proceed and read entire blog that day forward.

      I begin chanting Om, the mantras (beej, gayatri, om namah) which works very well at the time I'm stressed and lack sleep,
      I use mudras to aid digestion and I add probiotics to my diet (Yakult, kimchi, yogurt, can't find desi ghee),
      I take pound ginger & powdered turmeric and green tea on morning proceed to worship the sun (Suryanamaskar) or a few push ups/pull ups,
      I recently bought two holy basil and place in the East side of the house,
      after reading on vastu I rearranged the entire house and boy I feel the difference as if the house itself is breathing; NE & SW are the most maintained rooms now (there is one time that mom came home when NE was a mess, no very messy, the dishes were undone, the floor is like a dumping site, which psychologically disturbed her got headache and went out of the house to take a walk, my sister cleaned the space ASAP),
      I downloaded the Bhagavat Gita read it once in a while also the Brihat Samhita and the Charaka Samhita,
      I listen Agnihotra,mantras, etc on YT (no vedic cows here),
      and yesterday just cooked spinach (high in zinc *from the Myth of the Male Menopause) with curry!
      I now know why I get boner in the morning beacause of nitric oxide, REM is important, masturbation is natural (captain you free me from the bounds of mental chains, sexual repression is not good now I blot out Vivekananda from memory),
      and I think the most important is the Sanatana Dharma (dharma, karma, and reincarnation), I just laugh in my mind when pastors preach the same heaven and hell over and over again (I'm born then baptised as protestant) went to church for family bonding though.

      Captain there are other things that changed me in subtle and physical aspects (I also learned marma points and use it to massage uncle's legs), anyway I felt I became a happier and content person than I was before. I may not write everything but I will always be your grateful reader.

      Your student,
      Jack
