SKIN CONDENSER

Condenser using the outer surface of the cabinet as the heat radiating medium.

SAFETY CONTROL

Device to stop unit, equipment or system if unsafe pressure and/or temperatures and/or dangerous conditions are reached.

AIR COOLER

A factory-encased assembly of elements whereby the temperature of air passing through the device is reduced.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

The ability of a material to resist surface wear.

DIELECTRIC STRENGTH

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.

REFRIGERATING CAPACITY

The ability of a system to remove heat as compared with the cooling effect produced by melting of ice.
