Preparation and materials for painting the ceiling
Before knowing in detail what tools and materials we will need to roof paint the ceiling, we must take into account some previous questions regarding surface preparation. To avoid splashes that may occur, it is necessary to remove the furniture from the room and cover the floor with plastic sheeting, newsprint or cardboard.
Shades and lamps should be removed and plugs covered with tape. Having a ladder high and safe enough to paint comfortably is also essential Clothing is also important, you must use special clothing for roof painting , which can be stained without problems. Protective glasses and gloves will be other help accessories.

Regarding the materials of the painting process, you will need:

  • A roller
  • A brush
  • An extension stick
  • A bucket
  • A plate
  • Ceiling paint

Steps to Roof Paint 

The process of painting the ceiling does not differ much from that of painting the walls:
  1. Repair: the putty will be our best ally in the event that we detect cracks in the ceiling. It is important to sand the entire surface of the roof afterwards and clean it with a damp cloth and apply a coat of Acrylic Sealant Fixer to avoid differences in absorption in repairs.
  2. Paint the perimeter first: with the brush, we will apply the ceiling paint at the angles between the walls and the ceiling, and then use the roller on the rest of the ceiling. This way we avoid leaving areas with marks. For some specific points that the roller does not reach we can use a brush.
  3. First coat of paint: we soak the tool with paint from the bucket, drain it and apply stripes vertically on the ceiling, without returning to the parts that we have already painted. It is not necessary or recommended to press the roller, it is enough to slide it.
  4. Second coat of paint: This second coat is applied when the first coat dries, in horizontal stripes.

7 reasons to collect coins

For many, collecting coins can seem like a boring and useless hobby. The kind of thing that may reminds you of your grandfather, who got an attic or a storage full of assorted hobby items that you can’t access. I can't really blame you if you look at that opinion towards coins or collectors, but I respectfully disagree. In fact, I used to think that way, but over a period of about two years, I found many reasons to come to love and respect this dying labor of love.

Battery systems with tanks

The most widespread are fuel battery systems with hydraulic accumulators.  Accumulators are made in the form of separate containers or as a whole with a high-pressure pump or nozzle. An example of a fuel system with a battery in the form of a tank is the injection system of the main marine diesel Doxford.  A high-pressure pump 1 with an eccentric drive supplies fuel through two automatic injection valves 2 of the ball type into a container 4, in which a pressure of 420-490 MPa is maintained.  The pressure in the container is monitored using a manometer connected to box 11, which contains shut-off, safety and drain valves.   The fuel enters the pump through the suction valve and the inlet port 3. The fuel supply to the cylinder is controlled by throttling at the suction by changing the flow area in the valves.  From the storage tank, the fuel flows to the metering device 5 through two poppet valves 6, controlled by the cam washer 10 and the lever 9, and then to the nozzle 7.
