HEAVY LIFT CHARGE

A charge typically imposed when special lifting gear is required to handle a given piece of cargo, which may be of either heavy weight or of large dimensions (often referred to as 'out of gauge' when dealing with container vessels).

COSOLVENT

  1. An apparatus for vaporizing, cracking, and enriching oils in the manufacture of carbureted water gas. 2. A device that makes and controls the proportions and quantity of fuel-air mixture fed to a spark-ignition internal combustion engine.

MIX BED DEMINERALIZER

FLAMMABILITY LIMITS

The upper and lower bounds of the fuel/air mixture which will support combustion. The upper flammability limit indicates the maximum fuel concentration in air that will support combustion. The lower flammability limit indicates the minimum fuel concentration in the air that will support combustion. Outside of these bounds the mixture does not burn.
