Continuous Survey of Machinery - a program in which the total number of survey items is arranged in order to provide for survey of approximately 20% of the machinery each year during a five-year period.

INTEGRATING FREQUENCY METER

An instrument that measures the total number of cycles through which the alternating voltage of an electric power system has passed in a given period of time, enabling this total to be compared with the number of cycles that would have elapsed if the prescribed frequency had been maintained. Also known as master frequency meter.

INJECTION

  1. The method of applying a signal to an electronic circuit or device. 2. The process of introducing electrons or holes into a semiconductor so that their total number exceeds the number present at thermal equilibrium. 3. The introduction of fuel, fuel and air, fuel and oxidizer, water, or other substance into an engine induction system or combustion chamber.

NUSSELT NUMBER

A dimensionless number used in the study of forced convection which gives a measure of the ratio of the total heat transfer to conductive heat transfer, and is equal to the heat-transfer coefficient times a characteristic length divided by the thermal conductivity. Symbolized NNu.

NUTATING-DISK METER

An instrument for measuring flow of a liquid in which liquid passing through a chamber causes a disk to nutate, or roll back and forth, and the total number of rolls is mechanically counted.

DIAMOND SIZE

In the bit-setting and diamond-drilling industries, the number of equalsize diamonds having a total weight of 1 carat; a 10-diamond size means 10 stones weighing 1 carat.

THERMO ACOUSTICAL EFFICIENCY

Equal to the sound power level/heat release. A value used to characterize the amount of combustion noise emitted from a flame. Defined as the ratio of the acoustical power emitted from the flame to the total heat release of the flame. Approximately equal to 1 X 10-6 for premixed and turbulent flames and equal to 1 X 10-9 for diffusion and laminar flames.

STACK LOSS

The fraction of total heat which exits with the flue gas through the stack. The quantity is customarily expressed as a percent of the total heat input. The stack loss is directly proportional to the stack exit temperature; the higher the temperature, the greater the stack loss.

CONTINUOUS BLOWDOWN

The uninterrupted removal of concentrated boiler water from a boiler to control total solids concentration in the remaining water.

MOLE FRACTION

The number of moles of any component in a mixture divided by the total number of moles in the mixture.
