SEEBECK EFFECT

When two different adjacent metals are heated, an electric current is generated between the metals.

AMMETER

An instrument for measuring the magnitude of electric current flow.

ARC

A flash, caused by an electric current ionizing a gas or vapor.

HYDROMETER

An instrument for determining either the specific gravity of a liquid or the API gravity.

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.

CORROSION INHIBITOR

Additive for protecting lubricated metal surfaces against chemical attack by water or other contaminants. There are several types of corrosion inhibitors. Polar compounds wet the metal surface preferentially, protecting it with a film of oil. Other compounds may absorb water by incorporating it in a water-in-oil emulsion so that only the oil touches the metal surface. Another type of corrosion inhibitor combines chemically with the metal to present a non- reactive surface.

AERATION

The state of air being suspended in a liquid such as a lubricant or hydraulic fluid.

ALIVE

A term referring to a circuit in which a current is flowing. Also referred to as live.

ADSORPTION

Adhesion of the molecules of gases, liquids, or dissolved substances to a solid surface, resulting in relatively high concentration of the molecules at the place of contact; e.g. the plating out of an anti-wear additive on metal surfaces.

ALTERNATOR

A device which converts mechanical energy, into alternating current.
