crystallization

the fixing of a floating charge on assets. Where money borrowed by a company is secured by a floating charge over the company's assets and undertaking, the company may continue trading and dispose of any assets in the course of that business. If the company defaults on its obligations under the terms of the loan agreement, the charge will crystallize, that is, immediately attach to the assets owned by the company at that time. Crystallization is therefore the process by which a floating charge becomes fixed on to particular assets.

The Crystallize research network, funded by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), brings together recognised scientific leaders in the field to develop new ideas, research and share knowledge in the science of crystallisation. The inaugural meeting on organic molecules forming crystals will take place from June 22-25, 2015 in Marseille, France.

This conversion into a fixed charge (called 'crystallisation') essentially freezes the assets against which the debtor has borrowed so that the debtor can no longer sell the assets or prevent their seizure by the bank.
But some of us do believe and take luck as nothing but the "crystallisation of your hard work bearing its fruits." It is because of this kind of attitude that one becomes capable of saying that luck follows those who keep on trying and never give up.
One of the common conditions resulting from dehydration are kidney stones that occur due to crystallisation of the body's salts in the kidneys due to lack of fluids.
India, July 31 -- Total High Density Polyethylene HD6081 (d = 0.960 g/cubic centimeter, MI2 = 8 g/10min), dedicated to still water application, has proved at Sumitomo (SHI) Demag to be the best HDPE resin capable of achieving fastest crystallisation, thus reducing demoulding time between shots while giving optimised mechanical parts.
Moreover, the creation of a Single Resolution Fund (SRF) -- in addition to the availability of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) as a last backstop -- will, over time, further reduce the risk of a crystallisation of liabilities on government balance sheets.
Now developed to be more than just a dryer, the Vrieco Nauta Vacuum Dryer is capable of performing a wide range of different processes including filtration, high temperature_ and vacuum sterilisation, steam stripping, chemical and crystallisation reactions and vacuum drying--all in one machine.
Furthermore, several studies have shown that the addition of a second phase in polymer matrices modifies the crystallisation behaviour of polymers [8-10, 16-19].
Bisneinex is optimised specifically for injection molding (IM) and stretch blow molding (SBM) processes (two stage process) as well as for injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) (one stage process) production of large volume containers (more than 3 l), which require thick-walled pre-forms and thus reduced crystallisation rate.
