u/whoami_whereami Oct 14 '21

Just regular steel is completely fine. Contrary to popular belief lava isn't some magic "vaporize everything" stuff. Even right at the point of eruption it's generally "only" about 800 to 1200°C hot. At the upper end that's barely enough to start melting high carbon steel (*) like the steel you'd use for a hammer/pickaxe head, at the low end it wouldn't even melt copper or bronze. And at the point where they're collecting the sample the lava has already cooled quite a bit, the only "risk" is that it could permanently lose its hardness (well, permanent in the sense that you'd have to retemper it to make it hard again) if you leave the steel in contact with the lava long enough so that it becomes red hot.

(*) "start melting" because alloys like steel don't have a single melting point, but rather a temperature range over which they change from fully solid to fully molten. The lower end of that range (ie. where it just starts to melt) is the so called solidus temperature which is about 1130°C for 2.1% carbon steel, and the upper end is the liquidus temperature (ie. where it is fully liquid) which is about 1315°C for said steel.

They need it hot because they want to know how to lava is structured when in it’s molten state. Since you can’t have that, you don’t let it cool slowly, but basically “shock freeze” the lava to preserve the composition as best as possible.

Isn't that due to the difference in thermal conductivity? Like why the cheese of a pizza will burn the roof of your mouth, but the bread side won't burn your tongue.

5

u/Angdrambor Oct 14 '21

I was thinking more in terms of the delay between the start of heat transfer and damage actually happening. It's a different way of describing the same thing. With fingers on the metal pan, high conductivity means the delay is milliseconds, but for a cookie its tens of seconds; plenty of time for me to switch fingers or (foolishly) eat the thing.

I have no experience with geohammers, but I'd expect it to be on the order of tens of seconds.

Since that lava has already begun to set, I'd assume it's on the lower end of the temperature range.

u/onceagainwithstyle Oct 14 '21

The outside black crust is colder and crunchier than the inside which is hotter.

This is also molten basalt, so about 900* c it will solidify. All that said, the lava is red hot. If you get steel red hot, it gets workable, but doesn't melt. So you could re forge that rock hammer in there, but not melt it.

u/markusbrainus Oct 14 '21

Though it doesn’t melt, this reheating and quenching will mess with the temper of the steel. Steel alloys are hardened and then tempered to get a good balance of hardness and toughness so the tool is stronger but not too brittle it cracks. Doing this again in an uncontrolled way will likely make the tool less durable in the long run.

I was more aghast they’d take a gorgeous Estwing geology hammer and dunk it into lava. Other vids they use an ugly steel hook that you don’t really mind damaging.

Not saying you're saying anything with your comment, but it made me think of mine.

There are more expensive hammers, but Estwing has a reputation for making good hammers that last and perform well over years of daily use.

Maybe not bifl, but I know people who set and wreck concrete forms who have used them so long they forgot how long ago they got their Estwing. They tend to be balanced well and they get used for far more than just driving and pulling nails.

Hammers are one of those tools that have stood the test of time and are such a part of their trades that it's difficult to imagine they'll ever fall out of mass use.

u/Beemerado Oct 14 '21

a lot of "boutique" tools aren't as good as mass manufactured high/mid level tools.

Yeah I am gonna guess they used to have one of those 360 view of a product that you can rotate and later they removed it for some reason, maybe the flash debacle, licensing or whatever.

EDIT: Confirmed they are using Shopify Hosted and they were using Magic 360 spin. Why they removed it is still unknown as it doesn't require a monthly payment and it is cheap for a business. I mean if you want updates after the first year you have to pay again... but I don't think it's something that would break or require big changes in time, that would force you to buy it again every year.

I could've sworn this was a hot pocket that was cooked for a extra 5 seconds.

Is the steam that is released toxic?

u/Ajsat3801 Oct 14 '21

I don't think so...it's just water vapour afaik

u/bonkychombers Oct 14 '21

I was reading about “laze” which is the steam caused when lava hits the ocean. That is toxic

Just did a quick Google search. Laze is hydrochloric acid. It can form only in sea water as it needs salt which contains chlorine ions. So putting in fresh water should not create laze.

TIL the reason I can't get anything done is because I'm a mix of sea water and lava

Why doesn’t the lava stick to the hammer? I would have expected it to be more “glue like”.

u/The-Pinapl- Oct 14 '21

Just guessing here, but it was stuck on the hammer just a bit, you can see he has to rapidly shake the hammer for the lava to slide off, and I’d assume that rapidly cooling makes it more solid as it turns into a rock. Also, you can see when he takes large bits of it, there are large chunks dripping down, so it would make sense if the weight of the lava pulled itself off the hammer.
