possessing the ability to attract and to hold chargedparticles.
The adhesion of the molecules of gases, dissolved substances, or liquids in more or less concentrated form, to the surface of solids or liquids with which they are in contact. Commercialadsorbent materials have enormous internalsurfaces.
ADSORPTION INHIBITORS -
They are materialswhich caused them to be adsorbed on to the metalsurface due to their polar properties.
- The transfer of heat by horizontalmovement of air.
Exposing to the action of air, likeblowing air through water before discharging to ariver.
- (see oxygen cell)
A condition in which "free" or dissolvedoxygen is present in water.
AERODYNAMIC NOISE -
Also called generatednoise, self-generated noise; is noise of aerodynamicorigin in a moving fluid arising from flow instabilities.In duct systems, aerodynamic noise is caused byairflow through elbows, dampers, branch wyes,pressure reduction devices, silencers and other ductcomponents.
: A device used on turbo-chargedengines to cool air that has undergone compression.
The clustering together of a fewor many particles into a larger solid mass.
A device used to cause motion inconfined fluids.
A substance containing by volumeapproximately 78 - 79% nitrogen; 20.95% oxygen,.94% argon, traces of carbon dioxide, helium, etc.
AIR ATOMIZING OIL BURNER
- A burner for firingoil in which the oil is atomized by compressed air,which is forced into and through one or morestreams of oil which results in the breaking of the oilinto a fine spray.
: The presence of air in a pump or pipes,which prevents the delivery of liquid.
AIR BLAST TRANSFORMER
- A transformer cooledby forcing a circulation of air around its windings.
- An accumulation of air in a heatexchanger or other vessel which impedes heattransfer.
: A device that removes air from ahydraulic system. Types include a needle valve,capillary tubing to the reservoir, and a bleed plug
- Is a capacitor, which uses air as thedielectric between the plates.
AIR CHANGES -
A method of expressing the amount of air leakage into or out of a building or room in terms of thenumber of building volumes or room volumes exchanged.
- A devise used to remove air borneimpurities [A device (filter) for removing unwanted solidimpurities from the air before the air enters the intakemanifold]
- Coil on some types of heat pumps used either as an evaporator or a condenser.
: A device used to increase air pressure.
- They are basically refrigerationdevices cooling air and rooms rather then foodcompartments.
AIR CONDITIONER, UNITARY -
An evaporator,compressor, and condenser combination; designed in oneor more assemblies, the separate parts designed to beassembled together.
-The process of treating air tosimultaneously control its temperature, humidity,cleanliness, and distribution to meet the requirements of the conditioned space.
AIR CONDITIONING UNIT -
An assembly of equipment for the treatment of air so as to control, simultaneously, itstemperature, humidity, cleanliness and distribution to meetthe requirements of a conditioned space.
AIR CONDITIONING, COMFORT -
The process of treatingair so as to control simultaneously its temperature,humidity, cleanliness and distribution to meet the comfortrequirements of the occupants of the conditioned space.
AIR COOLER -
A factory-encased assembly of elementswhereby the temperature of air passing through the deviceis reduced.
- Insufficient air, in an air-fuel mixture, tosupply the oxygen required for complete oxidation of thefuel.
AIR DIFFUSER -
A circular, square, or rectangular air distribution outlet, generally located in the ceiling andcomprised of deflecting members discharging supply air invarious directions and planes, and arranged to promotemixing of primary air with secondary room air.
AIR DIFFUSION AERATORS -
They are aerators intowhich air is pumped into the water through perforatedpipes, plates, or any other method.
- A tube or conduit for conveying air from oneplace to another.
: A jet pump that removes air and non-condensable gases.
