Magneto blender

Blend the unblendable

Imagine a powerful magnetic field that equilibrates in the air a metal blade, covered in reinforced high resistance ceramic.

then place the reinforced ceramic vase like a regular blender vase.

Rotate the ceramic covered blade at unlimited speed.

You can blend highly corrosive things that would not be possible to blend, to speed no mechanichal machine would bare, in a tightly sealed containtment.

       What highly corrosive things do you have in mind, that are in need of being high-speed blended?   

       If this is just about blending different liquids, then ultrasound blending would be much easier.   

       If this is about blending hard substances into highly corrosive liquids (that for some reason cannot corrode the substance by themselves): magnetic bearings are not able to endure the sort of abuse that those blades would produce randomly impacting with objects at high speed. Blenders for corrosive substances usally simply leave the bearings outside , and just lower the blades in.

       [marked-for-deletion] Widely known to exist. The essence of this idea is the common magnetic stirrer.

       [ldischer], A magnetic stirrer does not blend, therefore it is not the same thing. Otherwise any combination of objects would not be a new idea, including, for example, combining football with a ball of string.   

       I would agree with [loonquawl] that it would be difficult to produce and lowering a blade in would be a much simpler option.   

       [noyla], careful when adding magnets to things, they arent as useful as you might think.

       There are so many points at which your pitch for this idea is pure garbage, I feel like a kid in a candy store.   

       I only abstained from annotating earlier because I was hoping everyone would start ignoring this massive influx of crap you are dumping into the HB.   

       1. //powerful magnetic field that equilibrates in the air a metal blade//   

       Exactly how are we accomplishing this? Can you explain the arrangement of electromagnets that both levitate and rotate a metal blade? Or do we have to imagine how it is done?   

       2. //Rotate the ceramic covered blade at unlimited speed//   

       The speed would most assuredly be limited by the strength of the magnetic field (magnetic force is one of the weaker forces available for work), and the friction between the blade and the material you are blending.   

       3. //You can blend highly corrosive things that would not be possible to blend, to speed no mechanichal machine would bare, in a tightly sealed containtment.//   

       I don't see you offering up any new material capable of withstanding corrosion better than what is currently available, and any "mechanical machine" *would* definitely bare to spin a blade faster than a magnet.
