Multi-inlet valve used to mix two or more fluid intakes to give a mixed-phase flow.



Related Terms

DRY TEST METER

Gas-flow rate meter with two compartments separated by a movable diaphragm which is connected to a series of gears that actuate a dial; when one chamber is full, a valve switches to the other, empty chamber; used to measure household gas-flow rates and to calibrate flow-measurement instruments.

DOUBLE-PIPE EXCHANGER

Fluid-fluid heat exchanger made of two concentric pipe sections; one fluid (such as a coolant) flows in the annular space between pipes, and the other fluid (such as hot process stream) flows through the inner pipe.

THREE-WAY VALVE

Multi-orifice (opening) flow control valve with three fluid flow openings.

BYPASS

A pipe or duct, usually controlled by valve or damper, for conveying a fluid around an element of a system.

BACK FLOODING

Occurs when fluid passes in reverse through a pump or valve back into the fluid reservoir or compartment.

DUAL-GRAVITY VALVE

A float-operated valve that operates on the interface between two immiscible liquids of different specific gravities.

COMPRESSOR VALVE

A valve in a compressor, usually automatic, which operates by pressure difference (less than 5 pounds per square inch or 35 kilopascals) on the two sides of a movable, single-loaded member and which has no mechanical linkage with the moving parts of the compressor mechanism.

INLET VALVE

The valve through which a fluid is drawn into the cylinder of a positive-displacement engine, pump, or compressor. Also known as induction valve.

ECCENTRIC VALVE

A rubber-lined slurry or fluid valve with an eccentric rotary cut-off body to reduce corrosion and wear on mechanical moving valve parts.

FLOW VALVE

A valve that closes itself when the flow of a fluid exceeds a particular value.
