Do You Have Mad Scientists?

They’re fun Halloween costume ideas…Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde, Lex Luthor, Doc Brown, and so many other rabidly driven scientists, eccentric engineers, crackpot inventors, or indefatigable innovators – they’re all great, but we want to know about your Mad Scientists.

Do you have actual scientists who are angry? …or are your “Mad Scientists” impulsive experimenters on the plant floor?

Whether your plant has upset scientists or an exuberant innovator on the floor (who is filled with unbridled passion to experiment and try new things) – Koss Industrial can help you optimize your process and work with your Mad Scientists.

…if your scientists are truly mad (…as in insane, unhinged, deranged, or just plain loopy), then you have our sympathies (and you should probably try to stay on their good side)!

Manage the Mad Scientist on your floor.

Prevent the “Mad Scientists” on the floor from following ineffective impulses and ideas – record & report chemical use.

You see it happening…again.

Your “Mr. Clean” has the best intentions…his logic appears to be:
“If I use a half gallon today, then a whole gallon tomorrow will work even better! Probably twice as fast!!”

Sound familiar? We know what happens. Adding more cleaning solution is rarely the answer. If we use twice as much detergent, our clothes aren’t twice as clean after washing, but your “Mr. Clean” doesn’t  believe that…and you’re buying twice as much chemical.

Whether you are making ice cream or you’re cleaning equipment – KOSS can help you work with your innovative, impulsive machine operator (a.k.a. Mad Scientist). Don’t stifle their creativity, control your innovator’s environment. You can even empower their experiments by monitoring, recording, and reporting the results. “Why was this batch bad? Why is this one better?” Give them the tools they need to succeed and protect your batches by controlling their “experiments.” Unlock the secrets of your Mad Scientist’s success – partner with Koss Industrial’s Electrical Dept. for chemical monitoring with controls. Automation, Controls, Reporting and more – trust us to optimize your Mad Scientist’s top-secret laboratory.

Appease your (literally) Mad Scientists.

If they’re literally unhappy or upset, we have a few ideas on how to help your scientists find happiness.

Scientists & Laboratories – okay, so we all agree that they go together like peanut butter & jelly, cheese & crackers, a DeLorean DMC-12 & time travel…so what’s our solution to keeping your scientists happy?  A totally wicked laboratory (wicked as in awesome, not wicked like witches). You can’t be a great Mad Scientist without an awesome Secret Laboratory.

Not quite ready to invest in lab-size equipment or plants? You could try appeasing your scientists with smaller gifts, trinkets and flowers; but Koss Industrial might still be able to help you. PLAN B, we recommend you try humor on your actually-angry Mad Scientists; maybe say something like “Don’t trust atoms…they make up everything.”  …unless you have a lot of employees named Adam, then that is probably not a good joke for you to be using in the workplace.

Easy Savings with Reconditioned Tools

There’s quite a lot of shopping going on this time of year, and the malls and shopping outlets are packed with shoppers anxious to get that perfect holiday gift for their friends and loved ones this year. For the handyman in your life, you may want to consider getting some tools and equipment.

Sometimes those tools and equipment out at the large tools stores can be a bit pricey, especially for name brand supplies. A way to save a bit of money, and still get a like-new tool is to consider purchasing reconditioned gear. The terms “used” and “reconditioned” aren’t synonymous; reconditioned tools are repaired by factory personnel and are backed by the full manufacturer’s warrantee for parts and workmanship. So a reconditioned valve, screwdriver or wrench will perform like new for a fraction of the price. With a value like that, it doesn’t make any sense not to buy reconditioned products.

Our Burgeoning Dairy Endeavor

A few years ago my wife and I sold our home in the Hamptons and decided to purchase a small farm in our home state of Nebraska. After living in suburban areas for most of our lives, we were ready to reconnect with the pastoral pleasures of the Midwest. Since we’re getting older now, we didn’t want the full rigors of farm life, but we didn’t want to be sedentary all day either.

The homestead came with a small barn, so we decided to focus on raising cows and creating our own dairy products. As I said, we didn’t want much work, so we only bought enough cows to supply ourselves and some of the locals with milk and other dairy products. We started out with the basics, but our small enterprise has blossomed and we recently invested in some new cheese processing equipment.

Making Goods the Modern Way

cheese making

When I was in elementary school we used to always have a day where we would use old-country methods to create essential goods. There was typically a station for making candles and other practical crafts, such as whittling. One of my favorite activities was churning ice cream or using rudimentary methods for creating other tasty treats.

Thankfully, today we have advanced equipment to make these tasks easier for professionals and homemakers alike. For example, making cheese used to a time-consuming and painstaking task, but now we have industrial cheese making equipment that has streamlined the process.
