A tricone type of ball mill; the cones become steeper from the feed end toward the discharge end.


Divisions made of incombustible material and capable of preventing the passage of smoke and flame up to the end of the first 12 hour of the standard fire test.


The ratio of the absolute pressure at the discharge from a compressor divided by the absolute pressure at the suction. For internal combustion engines compression ration is absolute pressure at the end of compression stroke divided by absolute pressure at beginning of this stroke


A device used to feed an injection mold, separating molten feed material from partially molten pellets.


The amount of liquid cargo retained in a cargo tank at the end of discharge. It is used to maintain the cargo tanks cooled down during ballast voyages by re-circulating through the sprayers. On LPG ships such cooling down is carried out through the reliquefaction plant and on LNG ships by using the spray pumps.

Shipped under rate that includes cost from end of ship's tackle at load port to end of ship's tackle at discharge port.
