    Dude - you'll get used to taking mega amounts of supplements. I can take 3 fish oil, 5 lecithin, and 5 flax oil pills at the same time (about the same size as Nitrix).

    If you don't mind the hassle, go ahead. The good thing about capsules is that the NO stays in your body longer as it takes longer for it to fully dissolve. This is at least what I have noticed. So if you crush them, hell you could just get a powder that is similar in ingredients.

    I've never used Nitrix (mainly because I don't really care for the whole Nitric Oxide hype, but that's another story), but are the tablets scored? If so, you could easily cut them in half and still get a similar 'sustained' effect.

    I can't imagine....seriously, I can't. I'm the only ChE in my department and I'm the co-op! It is sad

    What sort of biz are you co-oping for??? Something more mechanical related?

    I co-oped at DuPont - that was a waste of time. I wouldn't work there if they made me CEO.


    Hopefully your experience is better than mine. I know I've been SERIOUSLY pushing my managers to give our co-ops meaningful work that is real engineering (not play sh*t in a lab).
    I've made that one of my points to bring up to the elders.

    I work for an autoparts maker. My first co-op was somewhat meaningful because I worked with the materials department (alongsides some ChE's). Second co-op was somewhat meaningful, as I got to put the knowledge I had learned in the first one to use in Process Quality Control, and actually had some responsibility and freedom to start on my own projects. This is my third time around, I support 2 business units at a pilot-plant. My support seems to come as filling out the paperwork necessary to do lab testing, summarizing lab results so the engineers don't have to read them, and part-runs (driving places to drop stuff off/ pick stuff up that wouldn't get there in time if it was shipped).

    What sort of industry do work in jmh?

    I work for one of the super major oil companies. The more distinguished part though - chemicals.

    (We actually have specs and have a clue how out equipment functions. The refinery is another planet - full of used car salesman. Most of their towers are flooded - at least from what I can tell. It cracks me up.)

    I have responsibility over a plant that makes over a million bucks a day in profit as process engineer.
    We make purified hydrogen (very, very, very important to refineries in today's world of low sulfur motor gasoline and diesel) along with feeds for plastic production.

    I have more paperwork than I'd like - that comes with the territory of corporate America.
    But - I do get to work out in the plant with the operators to figure out problems. I enjoy that aspect of my job.
    I get to climb inside equipment and direct cleaning activities. I've been inside 13 distillation towers already. (Which is alot for someone only working for 3 years.)
    I'm now allowed to inspect them by myself (no elder engineer needed).


    It's amazing to me a mere 3 years later to see how much chemical engineering I flat did not know when I graduated. (And I had a 4.0 gpa, mind you.)


    Anyway - if you ever have any questions or need help as your career progresses - don't hesitate to drop me a line.


    One other word of advice - if you do go into traditional chemical engineering (chem plant or refinery) DO seek out Norman Lieberman's Process Troubleshooting class when you start work. (Maybe 6 months to a year after you start - he's demanding as an instructor.)
    He flies all over the US - maybe even across the icy boarder.
    I learned a ton of stuff in there - esp. why operators do the (insert adjective here) things they do.

    I have union guys too.

    I've concluded cause and effect is lost on the vast majority of them.

    I watched an operator open a 3/4" bleeder valve only to release a gas stream that contained about 1000 ppm H2S - with no breathing air on.

    (I was upwind a block away - luckily.)
