FILTER ELEMENT

The porous device that performs the actual process of filtration. Also known as Cartridge

HYDROFINISHING

A process for treating raw extracted base stocks with hydrogen to saturate them for improved stability.

CUTTING FLUID

Any fluid applied to a cutting tool to assist in the cutting operation by cooling, lubricating or other means.

ACID ATTACK

Caused by an incomplete flushing after an acid cleaning process of boilers or similar equipment.

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.

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.

CRACKING

The process whereby large molecules are broken down by the application of heat and pressure to form smaller molecules.

ADIABATIC PROCESS

A thermo-dynamic process in which no heat is extracted from or added to the system of the process.

DEMULSIBILITY

The ability of a fluid that is insoluble in water to separate from water with which it may be mixed in the form of an emulsion.
