Power Boilers.

COMPRESSOR

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into pneumatic flow power.

ALTERNATOR

A device which converts mechanical energy, into alternating current.

HALF-POWER POINTS

Power ratios used to define the angular width of a radar beam. One convention defines beam width as the angular width between points at which the field strength is 71 percent of its maximum value. Expressed in terms of power ratio, this convention defines beam width as the angular width between half-power points. A second convention defines beam width as the angular width between points at which the field strength is 50 percent of its maximum value. Expressed in terms of power ratio, the latter convention defines beam width as the angular width between quarter- power points.

BRINELLING

Permanent deformation of the bearing surfaces where the rollers (or balls) contact the races. Brinelling results from excessive load or impact on stationary bearings. It is a form of mechanical damage in which metal is displaced or upset without attrition.

PUMP

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into hydraulic fluid power.

FILTRATION

The physical or mechanical process of separating insoluble particulate matter from a fluid, such as air or liquid, by passing the fluid through a filter medium that will not allow the particulates to pass through it.

INTENSIFIER

A device which converts low pressure fluid power into higher pressure fluid power.

ANSI-B.31.1
