BASKET STRAINER

A porous-sided or screen-covered vessel used to screen solid particles out of liquid or gas streams.

MECHANICAL SEPARATION

A group of industrial operations by means of which particles of solid or drops of liquid are removed from a gas or liquid, or are separated into individual fractions, or both, by gravity separation (settling), centrifugal action, and filtration.

HEAT OF SOLIDIFICATION

The increase in enthalpy when 1 mole of a solid is formed from a liquid or, less commonly, a gas at constant pressure and temperature.

VACUUM SEPARATOR

A separator that utilizes subatmospheric pressure to remove certain gases and liquids from another liquid because of their difference in vapor pressure.

ASTROBALLISTICS

The study of phenomena arising out of the motion of a solid through a gas at speeds high enough to cause ablation; for example, the interaction of a meteoroid with the atmosphere.

GAS LIFT
