O-Day - Explaining Frank Polifka's Windhexe
... can you guess how yet?
In response to my “Anomalous Radioactive Variations” presentation (where I make the observation that the prior work of Joe Parr - supports, extends and proves, without realising it, the findings of Dr. Alexander Parkomov), Chris Scott reminded me of a fascinating technology that, honestly, would have been stuck in a memory hole if he had not raised it again. Thank you Chris - this is how open science should work.
After analysing the patent  (now expired and so free to use!)- it was immediately clear how it was operating and this has profound implications for many of the things we have been discussing recently. It would appear that Kraft Foods took up the technology and made several derivatives , many patents of which have expired or are soon to expire.

From the video description
Kansas farmer Frank Polifka has figured out how to tame the power of a tornado. Polifka spent years trying to make a man-made tornado. It appears that the controlled destruction of his "canned tornado" can grind and dry just about any material. Polifka calls his device a Windhexe. He says it can turn tin cans into pellets the size of BBs, reduce gravel to dust, and thoroughly pulverize waste products, including manure and dead animals, into powder which can be disposed of fairly easily.
After building and successfully demonstrating his initial prototype, Polifka teamed up with Dave Cantrell, Reeds Spring, Missouri, and Mike Banks, Eden, Maryland, to form Universal Agri Products, Inc. The company is exploring uses for the technology in a number of industries, from processing agricultural and food processing wastes to preparing metals and plastics for recycling.
The "tornado in a can" uses air compressors to create a true tornadic vortex in the center of a conical chamber that looks much like a hopper-bottomed feed bin. Items to be processed are dropped into the top or tossed up from the bottom. The tornado-like vortex causes them to virtually explode. As the parts crash into each other in the chamber, they are smashed to powder. The longer the materials stay in the vortex, the smaller the particle created.
Depending on the temperature of air and the type of compressors used, air temperature inside the vortex rises to between 200 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Additional heating of the air as it goes through the system can be used to dry materials instantly. Even without added heat, though, a slurry of broken eggs and eggshells fed into the Windhexe comes out as a powder. Universal Agri Products has tested several sizes of the Polifka machine, mostly to determine how well they work for processing food manufacturing wastes and garbage.

Real (not strong) tornado appears to instantly convert parts of building into dense dust
Thanks to Sean for sending this video showing a phenomenon, occurring a little above ground, where we see dense dust, that looks very similar to the non-organic powders from a Windhexe, evolving from the roof of farm building.
Note, it appears to be non-organic things that get converted to a fine dust. If it is organic (specifically in my understanding containing carbon) then it is more resistant to being converted to hyper fine dust.

Windhexe analogue - AirGrinder - 'Tornado Machine'
Jouni Tuonela found there is a commercial company that I understand bought licence rights to patents (which are now essentially free to use, but they may have extended them) ... NOTE - IT CLAIMS IT MAGNETISES METALS - if so - no surprise there!
According to Grantor’s website above - the “AirGrinder”, requires "only 0.5-1 kWh per kg vaporized water" to remove water from moist material.
Using the calculator here to raise 1kg of water from 26ºC to 100.1ºC requires 0.72kW hours which is comparable. This implies that the 'grinding' into SPHERICAL and free-flowing small particles, and making [some of?] the products metals separable by magnets is ALL FOR FREE!
Moreover it is faster and better (according to sweet potato paper ) for food than air-drying and faster than Freeze Drying.
