Related Terms

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.

AERATION

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

FIRE POINT

The temperature to which a combustible liquid must be heated so that the released vapor will burn continuously when ignited under specified conditions (Clevelend Open Cup).

ASPERITIES

microscopic projections on metal surfaces resulting from normal surface-finishing processes. Interference between opposing asperities in sliding or rolling applications is a source of friction, and can lead to metal welding and scoring. Ideally, the lubricating film between two moving surfaces should be thicker than the combined height of the opposing asperities.

BARREL

A unit of liquid volume of petroleum oils equal to 42 U.S. gallons or approximately 35 Imperial gallons.

FRICTION

The resisting force encountered at the common boundary between two bodies when, under the action of an external force, one body, moves or tends to move relative to the surface of the other.

FLUID FRICTION

Friction due to the viscosity of fluids.

FLUID

A substance readily assuming the shape of the container in which it is placed; e.g. oil, gas, water or mixtures of these. A general classification including liquids and gases.
