The World of High Temperature and High Pressure
Amazing Power of the Nature.
Welcome to The High Temperature and High Pressure World.
High temperature and high pressure are helpful to us in our everyday life. Now we will introduce to you a part of magic in high temperature and high pressure.
Powers of High Temperature & High Pressure
We are normally under 1 atmospheric pressure.
Under the water, pressure increases by 1 atmosphere with each 10 meter of depth. The earth, always under pressure, is like a large container of high temperature and high pressure.
The power of high temperature and high pressure is used for familiar products to us. For example, a pressure cooker, which can reduce the cooking time, or a siphon coffee-maker, which can brew coffee quickly by using pressure.
Kobe Steel, Ltd. has been globally recognized as an expert the industry applying high temperature and high pressure technologies.
Diamonds are created over thousands of years under high pressure deep underground.
Until the middle of 20th century, it had been a dream for the industries to artificially create a diamond.
Today, artificial diamonds can be produced only in a couple of months by use of high pressure and high temperature technologies.
If won't be just a dream to create something beyond diamond!
It might be the field of material processing that the high pressure and high temperature technologies technologies have been most used for. Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP), in which powders are compressed into green compacts under hydrostatic pressure, is widely used as the highly reliable powder forming method.
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), in which materials are processed under simultaneous application of high pressure and high temperature, is widely used as the heat processing and sintering method.
Recently, high pressure technologies have been attracting attention in food industry in the name of High Pressure Processing (HPP). For example, elongation of shelf life of raw foods, preservation of vitamin or flavor which are lost by heating, or removing bitter taste of grapefruit juice. For example, of vitamin or flavor which are lost by heating, elongation of shelf life of raw foods, preservation of, or removing bitter taste of grapefruit juice.
In this way, application of high temperature and high pressure has been expanding. Kobe Steel, Ltd. by developing high temperature and high pressure equipment.
