Abandoned chemical lab
• Abandoned chemical laboratory
When any large industry starts to degrade or to decline it with a pull to the bottom of the associated research institutions, facilities and so on. D. They stop the study, closed the lab, dismissed the staff, in a place where yesterday was in full swing work already no one is now.
Sometimes it happens so suddenly that all the equipment and even personal belongings remain in enclosed buildings to fend for themselves. Most likely, this laboratory, which investigates the pesticide happened.
The building, in the attic where we are now, was built in the 60s and has been abandoned for several years. Next to this laboratory are other SRI housing that working yet. Apparently, so the building is connected to electricity.
Before us ventilation hoods of chemical cabinets that are on the lower floors.
In total, the building of three floors, the first and second - almost empty. But the third is the most interesting. It preserved almost all rooms. Here you can see the hood and going from his pink pipe ventilation to the attic.
In some areas a strong clutter like here conducted a search.
In other fairly clean and quite unlike the fact that the building has been abandoned for several years. Pay attention to the posters.
Probably posters of half-naked girls contribute to productivity. Because in addition to the laboratory of the plan I risque photos are very common in the production and research facilities.
The peculiar design of work equipment.
I've always wondered left serviceable, as if he can no longer find a use. "Refractometer IGF-22 is designed for direct measurement of refractive index of liquid and solids in the range of 1, 3-1, 7 to line D and the average dispersion of these bodies with the error readings obtained from multiple measurements and not exceeding ± 2 * 10-4 . for refractive index and ± 1 * 10-4 to 5 average dispersion unit can be used to rapidly determine the concentrations of water, alcohol, ether and other solutions of refractive index nD "- manual for use.
In the chemical laboratory are always so many different glass containers.
When I saw so many useless glassware, I remembered my chemistry lessons at school, which was the equipment shortages and everyone was afraid to break some flask.
If you have a school would be such an abundance of chemical equipment and reagents, both in the laboratory, the interest in science among students would be higher.
To find out why the lab was abandoned, failed, possibly due to the decline of agriculture in Russia, to the development and research of new methods of chemical plant protection is no longer the case and as a result - reduction in funding, which entails the closure of the lab.
On the problems in the agricultural sector following facts - grain harvest totaled 70 million tons in 2012, which is less than the Tsarist Russia, and significantly less than in the USSR. In this case, it is not clear what the quality of the grain. For example, in 2008, with a yield of 100 million. Tons of grain, only 40% is fit for human consumption. In addition to degradation of cultivated land has not yet been carried out due clipping of seeds, which contributes to increased incidence of plants and crop deterioration.
Unfortunately, in Moscow and the Moscow region there is a tendency for the destruction of scientific objects, created during the Soviet era.
Due to the remoteness from residential areas, the abandoned laboratory managed for several years to be invisible and be saved from the looting.
But it was in 2011, and in late 2012 about the lab learned a lot and started to take away all the valuable, along with the destruction of equipment and chemical glassware - for fun.
When do these pictures, the laboratory always someone climb and walk on the floors, in spite of the night.
In the corridor stands bulky equipment that is likely to want to move out of the building, but for some reason changed their minds.
In this room were unpacked books on the subject of pesticides.
Bridge DC type MO-62.
Naturally in this laboratory a huge amount of reagents. Some containers are broken and all the rooms are impregnated with a specific smell.
The drying cabinet SNOL-3 and 5. It is necessary to dry the products and materials. Capable of maintaining a temperature of 350 degrees Celsius.
At this point, we have waiting for a surprise, among the many hours has got a copy of which had a strong background radiation.
After the lab for more than two hours, and the order of inhaling chemical fumes, we go out of the building. At this Photos from the abandoned laboratory completed.
