HEELING MAGNET

A permanent magnet placed vertically in a tube under the center of a marine magnetic compass, to correct for heeling error.

END CAP

A ported or closed cover for the end of a filter element.

FILTER HEAD

An end closure for the filter case or bowl that contains one or more ports.

DISTILLATION METHOD

A method involving distilling the fluid sample in the presence of a solvent that is miscible in the sample but immiscible in water. The water distilled from the fluid is condensed and segregated in a specially-designed receiving tube or tray graduated to directly indicate the volume of water distilled. (ASTM D-95)

CAPILLARITY

A property of a solid-liquid system manifested by the tendency of the liquid in contact with the solid to rise above or fall below the level of the surrounding liquid; this phenomenon is seen in a small bore (capillary) tube.

FILTER HEAD

An end closure for the filter case or bowl which contains one or more ports.

STEALER

A single wide plate that is butt-connected to two narrow plates, usually near the ends of a ship.

ASME PART PFT SECTION I

Requirements for fire tube boilers.

TERMINAL VELOCITY

The highest sustained air stream velocity existing in the mixed air path at the end of the throw.

KINEMATIC VISCOSITY

The time required for a fixed amount of an oil to flow through a capillary tube under the force of gravity. The unit of kinematic viscosity is the stoke or centistoke (1/100 of a stoke). Kinematic viscosity may be defined as the quotient of the absolute viscosity in centipoises divided by the specific gravity of a fluid, both at the same temperature Centipoises / Specific Gravity = Centistokes .
