I see the "chemtrailers" have been keeping up with the brainwashing...
Also, aluminium has a very high melting point, higher than steel...
Man, I wish I could have a bet riding on that!
You are referring to Aluminum Oxide
THAT melts at 2,072 degrees C. (Elemental aluminum melts at 660.32 degrees C, and boils at 2,519 degrees C).
Steel (depending on the alloy) melts somewhere around 1,300 degrees C.
However, you continued:
...and could likely survive intact coming out a jet engine...
I'm still accepting bets....
Seems you may not know just HOW hot the fuel burns, in the combustion plenum of a modern Turbo Fan engine. For perspective, you should be aware that
I have flown airliners for over two decades --- I have, therefore, a certain level of knowledge about these sorts of things.
Our engines don't directly measure the temps deep inside (what is displayed in the cockpit are the exhaust
temps --- 'EGT'---, read
at certain places in the "hot section", at one of the turbine stages).
However, engineers when designing and testing measure(and some engine installations, some airplanes, actually display) "Turbine Inlet Temperature",
Here's a brief discussion about that:
On many (most) machines the temperature in the combustor where the flame is present is higher, and in many cases much higher, than the turbine
inlet temperature. Flame temperature has been measured in some machines at nearly 3000 deg F, and a large portion of the axial
compressor discharge pressure is used to cool and dilute the combustion gas temperature before it enters the first stage turbine nozzles because most
materials used in turbines today cannot withstand such a high temperature (for very long).
(3,000 degreees F is about 1,650 degrees C)
SO, even allowing for the aluminum oxides
in this "chemtrail" fantasy scenario...they would be at least softened. BUT, remember the claim
that they are very tiny? I doubt they'd last long at all. PLUS there are filters to go through, the high-pressure pumps in the fuel control unit
Which brings me to:
... and it is very unlikely given the size of the particles, and depending on concentration, that the engine would sieze.
I used the automobile einge analogy to "dumb it down" a bit.
Point is, the "aluminum particles", IF they made it past the filters, would tend to be deposited upon ALL of the hot section components within the
engine, downstream of the combustion.
If you want to understand why THAT would be a problem, just look at the stories recently, because of the Iceland volcano, and the effects that
airborne volcanic ash encounters have on jet engines.
Similar problem with this "aluminum particle" notion.
Oh, and the specific gravity of the fuel would be affected, would throw off the fuel quantity systems, and burn and range calculations...a whole host
of problems, that would be obvious (just in case someone wishes to claim it is being done without pilots' knowledge, or something).
Finally....you mentioned something about the "chemtrails" being at a "lower altitude" than contrails?
Care to back that up? Because, what I see there is an attempt, since the science of contrails is so well understood, and it debunks "chemtrails",
to merely perpetuate this scam, by claiming this "lower altitude" explanation.
"Chemtrails" are a scam, a hoax, a fraud. And, certain people within the "industry" of this scheme do it for a living, by suckiering gullible
people with fear-mongering and poor science.
Even YOU brushed off the airplane picture!! Didn't see how it was used to give a certain WRONG impression to people....or you saw, and didn't
