DOI

Declaration of Inspection - a specific checklist of certain tasks which are required to be completed prior to a oil, gas, or liquid hazardous material transfer over water in the United States. It is to be completed by the persons in charge from the terminal facility, barge, truck, or vessel and the vessel discharging or receiving the product(s). Both parties must sign all points on this checklist. The form must be made available for inspection teams from the USCG when requested, not just for current transfers, but for previous transfers as well.

MEMBRANE WATERPROOFING

Curing concrete, especially in pavements, by spraying a liquid material over the surface to form a solid, impervious layer which holds the mixing water in the concrete. Also known as membrane curing.

MASK

  1. A frame used in front of a television picture tube to conceal the rounded edges of the screen. 2. A thin sheet of metal or other material containing an open pattern, used to shield selected portions of a semiconductor or other surface during a deposition process. 3. A protective covering for the face or head in the form of a wire screen, a metal shield, or a respirator.

FLASH POINT

The lowest temperature at which a liquid gives off sufficient vapor to form a flammable mixture with air near the surface of the liquid. The flashpoint temperature is determined by laboratory testing in a prescribed apparatus.

Establishes the danger point when transferring, pumping, and firing procedures are concerned.

BATCH RECTIFICATION

Batch distillation in which the boiled-off vapor is re-condensed into liquid form and refluxed back into the still to make contact with the rising vapors.

FLOW MOISTURE POINT

The point at which the percentage of moisture is great enough in a granular material to cause the material to flow as a liquid under a prescribed test.

GAMMA-RAY LEVEL INDICATOR

A level indicator in which the rising level of the liquid or other material reduces the amount of radiation passing from a gamma-ray source through the container to a Geiger counter or other radiation detector.

EXTRUDATE

Ductile metal, plastic, or other semisoft solid material that has been shaped into a continuous form (such as fiber, film, pipe, or wire coating) by forcing the semisolid material through a die opening of appropriate shape.

ABSORPTION

The assimilation of one material into another; in petroleum refining, the use of an absorptive liquid to selectively remove components from a process stream.
