A valve designed to slowly relief a liquid or gas form system.



Related Terms

NOx

Any combination of nitrogen and oxygen in a compound form. The most common in terms of environmental considerations is NO, which constitutes 90% of combustion NOx emissions, and NO2. All NO is eventually converted to NO2 in the atmosphere. Hence, most regulations are written to assume that the NOx which is emitted is in the form of NO2. Nox emissions are influenced by many factors, including furnace temperature, flame temperature, burner design, combustion air temperature, nitrogen content of liquid fuels, ammonia content of gas fuels, and other factors.

SOLID BULK CARGO

Any material, other than liquid or gas consisting of a combination of particles, granules, or any larger pieces of material, generally uniform in dimension and composition which is loaded into a cargo space directly without any packaging or intermediate form of containment.

GAS-LIQUID-RATIO (GLR)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), all volumes converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature.

SPRAY NOZZLE

A nozzle from which a liquid fuel is discharged in the form of a spray.

CIRCULAR CHANNEL

Continuous-length opening with circular cross section through which liquid or gas can be made to flow.

FLASH SEPARATION

Process for separation of gas (vapor) from liquid components under reduced pressure; the liquid and gas remain in contact as the gas evolves from the liquid.

AERATION TANK

A fluid-holding tank with provisions to aerate its contents by bubbling air or another gas through the liquid or by spraying the liquid into the air.

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE

A valve that reduces pressure like a relief valve but to a different direction to a secondary circuit at a lower setting than the relief valve.

LATENT HEAT

The heat required to changes the state of liquid into a gas or vapor.

THROTTLING

A throttle valve controlling fuel or gas flow to an engine.
