    used a 4x8 ft piece of 2x4 inch welded wire fencing... probably take a couple of weeks for the cukes to climb it....

    But maybe I could weld something up with some stainless wire and my tri-mix gas to get them up off the ground....see, sorta on topic.

    I was thinking 3/4" EMT bent with a hickey and then that frame covered with the orange plastic snow fence or construction barrier in some parts of the country. And legs welded or bolted on. Anyways that's tomorrows project...Bob

When I was working in the refinery we would use Amine in the product stream to carry away the H2S and then remove the Amine back out to be reused. But anyway I need to build some metal frames for my wifes Cucumbers to get them off the ground. Don't know why but she wants them up...Bob

    **** it.

    In My Unsupported Humble Opinion:

    Will gasses self stratify if left in an undisturbed bottle... at a constant temperature for an extended period of time..?? Probably......

    Does it really matter for our purposes...?? Probably Not...

    Will rolling your bottle help...?? Couldn't Hurt... so why not..??

    Just my 2cents worth....

    ( I also plant Marigolds next to my Tomatoes hoping to ward off pests too.... might not help... but can't hurt.. )

    There are a lot of those old weldors things we do that just work, like drinking milk before welding galvanized to prevent metal fume fever. I don't know the science behind it, but it works, or seems to at least. I'm still going to use a fan and wear a respirator though. <br />
    <br />
    As far as the separating of gases goes...I'll probably still roll my cylinder. There are plenty of times when gases separate, I see it all the time as a fireman, of course products of combustion are not the same as mixing argon, CO2 and helium, but on certain gas leaks it's important to know its vapor density, whether it rises or falls, etc. So as to what extend something is considered "mixed", I have no idea. Hard to argue with science though.

    Thanks H80N and Bodybagger. Interesting how much you don't remember or didn't fully grasp about disliked subjects (chemistry) when something that sounds logical but isn't true comes along. One of those things that just sat in the background without research. I love this forum! You can even show your ignorance and get answers!

    MIXED GAS Separation Methods

    http://www.co2captureproject.org/pdf...separation.pdf

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_separation



    Remember.... the air we breathe is a "Mixed Gas".....

    And the component gases do not settle out on their own.. or do they under some conditions..??

    However there are some pretty spirited arguments on BOTH sides of this gas stratification question...
