LPT : Dont't throw away annoying Silica gel little pockets, that come along with new electronic devices, shoes, or purses. Silica gel can prolong the life of anything that would be affected by excess moisture or condensation. Here's what you can use them for:

~ Throw them in your gym bag and you can prevent bacteria or mold from growing. It also gets rid of nasty odors.

~ Put some of these in your toolbox β€” they will keep your tools free of rust.

~ You can preserve your old photos and books using them.

~ For photographers: Put some pockets in camera bag

~ Forget about rice, put a wet phone or other electronic devices in silica.

~ They can help keep your makeup bag fresh. Also put them in with your jewelry so it won't tarnish as quickly.

~ If you ever have to pack moist clothes, especially when you are on holiday, just put some of these packets into the luggage.

~ You’ll never have to wait for your windshield to clear up in the mornings again. Just put few silica sachets under your windshield. They will absorb the moisture, leaving your windshield clear.

~ Keep Dry Goods Dry - it can help keep foods like dried herbs, bread crumbs, crackers, and anything else that should be kept as crispy as possible from getting soggy. So, you can put some silica gel bags in the food wardrobe

~ Keeps the razor blades-sharp edges from rusting and dulling very well.

Silica gel is non-toxic, still they are not edible! Also make sure you keep it away from children and animals!

Running the dehydrator without heating the place up - put it in a big tub with a bunch of silica packets?

Now that it's starting to get hot it's getting harder to run my dehydrator without heating up my apartment and pissing of my roommates. I have a nesco professional dehydrator with 12 trays.

This might be a stupid idea, but what if I put the whole thing inside a large plastic tub with a lid, and put a bunch of food-grade silica packets in there? The dehydrator would blow hot air over the food, moisture goes into the air, then the silica packets absorb it?

Or would the silica packets not be able to absorb it fast enough, and I'd just end up with a big humid tub full of hot moist fermenting food?

Market Overview

Silica Sand is quartz that over time, through the erosion by water and wind, has been broken down into tiny granules. Silica is hard and chemically inert and has a high melting point, hence its use in construction.

There is one Australian producer, Cape Flattery Silica Mines, owned by Mitsubishi. The operation is located in far northeast Queensland at Cape Flattery. The sand is very high quality at 99.93% Silica.

The price of silica sand varies, depending upon quality. Sand for glass making ranges in price from USD35/t toUSD100/t for 99.5% silica, up to USD400 for 99.8% right up to USD5,000 for 99.997%.

Silica sand or dust can cause silicosis of the lungs and it is therefore regulated and not liked overall in the construction industry.

Silica sands must be at least 95% silica (SiO2) and less than 0.6% iron oxide. Lower grade sand is usually called regular sand or construction sand. The world consumes about 300M tonnes of silica sand every year. The largest consumers are China, India and North America.

Project Overview

The company has three projects in Western Australia: Arrowsmith North, Arrowsmith Central and Muchea, that have a confirmed mine life of 25 years β€” and the potential to being in production for about 100 years.

At present the projects have a combined 1.056 billion tonnes in resources at grades between 99.6% and 99.9% silicon dioxide (or silica), with low iron impurities.

All three projects are located between Geraldton and Perth.

Silica Exposure

I recently saw new OSHA guidelines out about silica. Silica being dust from concrete, Jack hammering, sawing stone, drilling, mining... Silica causes Silicosis in form chronic(long term, aggressive and acute(short term/extreme) where basically your lungs fail. An extreme case, a 28 year old individual working in an industrial space for less than 2 years with no mask develops the acute form. Nearly dies in a not so nice way. Another case, a 20 year old woman dies from repeated use of cleaning product containing silica over six months. Anyway I see plenty of road and construction workers and such not wearing masks while kicking up plenty of dust.

In your professional experience what is the prevalence of the silicosis cases? How was the individual exposed?

Builder hired by landlord has covered all my home and property in silica dust

So as the title says the landlord hired a builder to repairs and tank two walls downstairs, they have done zero prep work to protect the property as the dust is in every room including my child's room which all his toys and clothes n bedding now have a fine layer of silica dust.

I have taken photos and contacted the landlords to chase up this builder an ask why no prep work was done to either create a tunnel to block the dust or even a sheet over the staircase entrance to stop it traveling up stairs.

What laws or legal advice can you guys give me to make sure no dust is blown into my eyes on this situation as I have a endless list of item here which are I feel need covering for damages or professionally cleaned, i.e child's room so his teddy's/toys -clothes -bedding -TV- rug -blinds curtains. My room blinds- bedding- carpet. Kitchen ain't to bad as I moved everything into the utilities room but then they covered that room so my toaster, kettle are covered microwave but easily clean that off.

My living room n back room were the worst as that's where the work was taken place. The TV Xbox playstion covered an concerned it's inside the devices, sofa's were not covered with a dust sheet an same for my gaming chair n the Alexa devices. The curtains and blinds are thick with dust an the back room had my son's highchair and a table filled with items, which were ment to be covered by said builders. The place is a mess, to which I don't feel like it's down to us as the tenant to have to clean up this mess, especially after we were told to do as we did n move items to the back of the room for covering and even went out my way to store most are stuff in my son's room, which really worked out for me

Reddit how do I go forward with this one?

How to add silica to my water without killing myself?

So I'm messing around with water chemistry for brewing tea, and found a site that claims silica improves the flavor significantly (https://teacurious.com/water-recipe/). I'm not sure how true this is, but Fiji water, which has lots of dissolved silica, does make damn good tea. Anyway, they found a way to add silica to their water, but have not yet explained how, so I thought I'd try to figure it out myself.

I've only been able to find two ways that I might be able to do this. One would be to use Sodium Silicate. The other would be with Silicic Acid Hydrate.

For sodium silicate, my assumption is that it will split into Na^(2)O and SiO^(2), which will then react with water to become 2*NaOH and Si(OH)^(4). Is this correct? This doesn't seem like it would be safe to drink, as it would be incredibly basic if I dissolved enough to reach ~50ppm of silica.

The other method, silicic acid hydrate, would be great as I wouldn't have to worry about the sodium oxide screwing things up, but I'm just confused on whether or not it's even a real thing. This is just H^(2)SiO^(3), right? Which is metasilicic acid, which wikipedia says has never been isolated. So is this something different? Or is wikipedia just wrong? And if it's real, would it be safe to dissolve and drink (still ~50ppm silica)?

Sorry if this is really low level stuff. I wasn't sure where else to ask.
