Release of compressed gas resulting from incomplete closure of intake or exhaust valves.



Related Terms

OPEN CYCLE

A gas turbine system where the gases exhaust to atmosphere.

CLOSED CYCLE

The gas turbine arrangement in which the working vapour exhaust is directed back again to the compressor without coming in contact with the atmosphere.

TOPPING CYCLE

When the gas turbine exhaust is directed into the furnace of a steam boiler.

DIFFERENTIAL SEPARATION

Release of gas (vapor) from liquids by a reduction in pressure that allows the vapor to come out of the solution, so that the vapor can be removed from the system; differs from flash separation, in which the vapor and liquid are kept in contact.

GAS-COMPRESSION CYCLE

A refrigeration cycle in which hot, compressed gas is cooled in a heat exchanger, then passes into a gas expander which provides an exhaust stream of cold gas to another heat exchanger that handles the sensible-heat refrigeration effect and exhausts the gas to the compressor.

WASTE HEAT RECOVERY

The recovery of heat from the exhaust system of boilers, gas turbines, and other similar devices.

COMBINED CYCLE

Where heat from the exhaust gases of a gas turbine is used to generate steam to drive a steam turbine.

NITROGEN DIOXIDE

Mildly poisonous gas (NO2) often found in smog or engine exhaust

VORTEX

(1) The swirling motion of a liquid in a vessel at the entrance to a discharge nozzle. (2) The point in a cyclonic gas path where the two spirals change general direction by 180o.

MOLAR VOLUME

The volume occupied by one molecular mass in grams (g mole) under specific conditions. For an ideal gas at standard temperature and pressure it is 0.0224 m3/g mole.
