PACHUCA TANK

Air-agitated, solidliquid mixing vessel in which the air is injected into the bottom of a center draft tube; air and solids rise through the tube, with solids exiting the top of the tube and falling through the bulk of the liquid.

OSCILLATING SCREEN

Solids separator in which the sifting screen oscillates at 300 to 400 revolutions per minute in a plane parallel to the screen.

OSCILLATING GRANULATOR

Solids sizereducer in which particles are broken by a set of oscillating bars arranged in cylindrical form over a screen of suitable mesh.

OIL RECLAIMING

1. A process in which oil is passed through a filter as it comes from equipment and then returned for reuse, in the same manner that crank case oil is cleaned by an engine filter. 2. A method in which solids are removed from oil by treatment in settling tanks.

LOSS-IN-WEIGHT FEEDER

A device to apportion the output of granulated or powdered solids at a constant rate from a feed hopper; weight-measured decrease in hopper content actuates further opening of the discharge chute to compensate for flow loss as the hopper overburden decreases; used in the chemical, fertilizer, and plastics industries.

LIQUID FILTER

A device for the removal of solids or coalesced droplets out of a liquid stream by use of a filter medium, such as a screen, cartridge, or granular bed.

ION IMPLANTATION

A process of introducing impurities into the near-surface regions of solids by directing a beam of ions at the solid.

IMHOFF CONE

A graduated glass vessel for measuring settled solids in testing the composition of sewage.

HYDROSEPARATOR

A separator in which solids in suspension are agitated by hydraulic pressure or stirring devices.

HYDROCYCLONE

A cyclone separator in which granular solids are removed from a stream of water and classified by centrifugal force.
