Quicksilver propellers are Mercury's aftermarket brand, and they are manufactured in the same facilities using the same molds; they are simply stamped differently. A list of Mercury propellers and their Quicksilver equivalents is shown below. The quality should be the same.
Mercury also offers custom-made propellers that can be ordered from them. These are not made by Quicksilver but rather by Mercury themselves. They must be ordered at least two weeks in advance and they will take about three to four weeks to make. The cost is $400 without shafts and $500 with shafts. Not a bad price considering the quality you get.
As for Quicksilver, we only have two options available at this time: standard and ultra. The standard version has 3-blade propellers and costs $199.95. The ultra version has 4-blade propellers and it sells for $249.95. Both versions come with deluxe hubs and brass screws.
The best way to figure out which one is right for you is to look at both brands side by side and see which one looks better on your vehicle. If it's a classic car or scooter, go for the ultra version because they look cooler. If you want to save some money, go for the standard version because they last longer.
They are identical duplicates. Mercury products are sold via Mercury dealers, whereas Quicksilver products are offered by Walmart, Academy, and other retailers. This is a frequently asked question in the Merc section. One use for mercury is as a conductive heating element. It can be vaporized by applying heat from an electric coil or from an open flame, leaving no residue when cooled down.
Mercury lamps, thermometers, and barometers were all popular early 20th century inventions that are no longer made today because of environmental concerns related to mercury pollution. However, these products have been replaced with alternatives that do not contain mercury.
Modern replacements for mercury lamps include fluorescent lamps, which release some mercury into the environment during their disposal but are more efficient than incandescent lamps, so they use less electricity overall; and light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which are becoming increasingly popular due to their low energy consumption.
In addition to household uses, mercury is also used in industry, particularly in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and pesticides. Disposing of unused medicines and pesticides containing mercury should be done properly. In most cases, these items should not be thrown out with regular trash, but instead they should be placed in a special container for hazardous materials. These containers can then be taken to a recycling center or disposal facility.
Ingestion and skin contact are both ineffective methods of absorbing quicksilver (liquid metallic mercury). The most dangerous form is its vapor. Some mercury vapor is absorbed dermally, however the amount absorbed by this route is only around 1% of that taken by inhalation. The other 99% enters the body through the lungs.
The blood-brain barrier prevents many substances from entering the brain. Mercury can pass through this barrier, but at very low levels. This is why mercury poisoning affects the nervous system rather than the digestive or immune systems. The brain is also very sensitive to changes in temperature. Even small changes in body temperature can cause problems with cognitive function and behavior. Mercury toxicity can increase your body's heat production needs because it acts as a stimulant to the adrenal glands. This can lead to overheating even when exposed to cold temperatures.
People who eat large amounts of fish, such as salmon, swordfish, tuna, and halibut contain higher levels of mercury than others. Because of this, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends that women who are pregnant or might become pregnant avoid eating more than 12 ounces of fish containing high levels of mercury each week. For men, this limit is two servings of 12 oz. Each week.
In addition to being harmful if eaten, mercury is also toxic to humans if they come into contact with it through skinning contacts.
