Physical operation in which heat is removed from process fluids or solids; may be by evaporation of liquids, expansion of gases, radiation or heat exchange to a cooler fluid stream, and so on.

ROTARY COMPRESSOR

Mechanism which pumps fluid by using rotating motion.

SKIN CONDENSER

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

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.

FILTER MANIFOLD

A filter assembly containing multiple ports and integral relating components which services more than one fluid circuit.

ANALYTICAL FERROGRAPHY

The magnetic precipitation and subsequent analysis of wear debris from a fluid sample .This approach involves passing a volume of fluid over a chemically treated microscope slide which is supported over a magnetic field. Permanent magnets are arranged in such a way as to create a varying field strength over the length of the substrate. This varying strength causes wear debris to precipitate in a distribution with respect to size and mass over the Ferrogram. Once rinsed and fixed to the substrate, this debris deposit serves as an excellent media for optical analysis of the composite wear particulates.

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.
