About the vacuum flask principle
Know as Thermos® worldwide, the vacuum flask was commercialised from 1904 by the German company Thermos GmbH that holds the patent, even if the authorship of the process officially dates from 1892 and is attributed to the Briton Sir James Dewar. Creator of the Dewar vase, he did not patent his invention and got no compensation during his trial against Thermos.
The Dewar vase is the improvement of Arsonval's vase, who had already imagined the principle of the two welded concentric vases and had achieved dry vacuum in the recipient with a mercury pump. He then observed that a warm liquid placed in the inside vase cools down fifteen to twenty times slower than if the isolating envelope did not exist... This protection is even more efficient if you place the device in a very cold liquid...
It is therefore at the very beginning of the 19th century that Arsène d'Arsonval (1851 - 1940), doctor, French pioneer of medical electricity and great engineer, but above all great visionary (he created the telegraph, participated in the development of the cordless telephone and numerous medical devices, initiated the creation of the company Air Liquide by studying the liquefaction of gases, and proved that one could use electricity for resuscitation thanks to defibrillators and artificial breathing devices). He said in 1881:
Channelling electricity is generalizing power. But there is more to it. Transporting power a long way is being able to do without coal, the provision of which is getting scarce, being able to use natural forces lost until now. In the near future (...) we will see the water from our rivers, winds and tides setting in motion powerful electric machines from where a network of cables will leave, travelling across the country and distributing along the way its power to industry and agriculture. Remember (...) that thanks to science, the impossibility of yesterday will be the banality of tomorrow.
