ROTARY COMPRESSOR

Mechanism which pumps fluid by using rotating motion.

CUTTING FLUID

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

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.

EFFLUENT

The fluid leaving a component.

COLD CRANKING SIMULATOR

An intermediate shear rate viscometer that predicts the ability of an oil to permit a satisfactory cranking speed to be developed in a cold engine. (CCS)

ACCELERATION

The rate of change of velocity, as a function of time. Expressed in m/s2.

COOLANT

ACCELERATION

The time rate of change of velocity; i.e., the derivative of velocity; with respect to time.

ATF
