About: Can you Turn Coal/Carbon in to Diamonds with Hydraulic Press
Thanks to our viewers for this and many other great ideas! I think this can you do this or that with the press videos are really interesting and fun to make
I love the Finnish accent, I swear it sounds like Kimi Raikkonen just screwing around in his shop
Did u know u need to burn the carbon first?
people who requested this because they thought it how diamonds are made, probably don't know how they're actually made.
U should try this with pur graphite and apply heat along with it
Diamonds are formed when graphite is put under extreme pressure and heat for millions of years
Before watching this, I going to predict it will make charcoal briquettes!!!
I am sad now.
Add epoxy and let it cure under pressure.
You might have something useful but not diamonds.
Thumbs up at 0:00
, LOL !
The disappointment at 4:227:15
So disappointed by no more attempts.
You need a lot more pressure, heat, time
Maybe not diamonds but with a dusty coal like that you could make some fine black powder for sure.
For diamonds to even start forming you need like 725,000 pounds of pressure per square inch plus extreme heat approximately 2000 degrees Fahrenheit and then it still takes hundreds or even thousands of years to form and rise to the surface
It also requires lots of temperature and absence of oxygen lol
I scrolled down and found that this type of comment was already posted.
After pressing it you should’ve filled it up with more
Ur totally mad but ok
The entire kiln needs to be about 1200C. Since steel melts around 1600C - but making it out of tungsten may be smarter so temperature can reach 2000+C. Also make the kiln even smaller - like 1 cm2 and then try 50T press. And then let it be under pressure for some days.
U need high heat &pressure n need time for the molecular structure to rearrange to turn
You are either very dumb or very funny...
