Action of changing a gas or vapor to a liquid.



Related Terms

HOLDUP

  1. Volume of material held or contained in a process vessel or line. 2. Liquid held up (suspended) in a vertical process vessel or line by rising gas or vapor streams.

LIQUID SEAL

  1. The depth of liquid above an opening from which gas or vapor issues, as for a riser in a distillation-column tray. 2. Product drawoff in which a depth of liquid prevents the outflow of gas or vapor.

LATENT HEAT

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

GAS SCRUBBING

Removal of gaseous or liquid impurities from a gas by the action of a liquid; the gas is contacted with the liquid which removes the impurities by dissolving or by chemical combination.

LIQUEFIED GAS

A liquid, which has a saturated vapor pressure exceeding 2.8 bar absolute at 37.8°C and certain other substances specified in the Gas Codes.

CHEMICAL ION PUMP

A vacuum pump whose pumping action is based on evaporation of a metal whose vapor then reacts with the chemically active molecules in the gas to be evacuated.

COUPON

Polished metal strip of specified size and weight used to detect the corrosive action of liquid or gas products or to test the efficiency of corrosion-inhibitor additives. Also known as corrosion coupon.

VACUUM SEPARATOR

A separator that utilizes subatmospheric pressure to remove certain gases and liquids from another liquid because of their difference in vapor pressure.

DIFFERENTIAL SEPARATION

Release of gas (vapor) from liquids by a reduction in pressure that allows the vapor to come out of the solution, so that the vapor can be removed from the system; differs from flash separation, in which the vapor and liquid are kept in contact.

HASCHE PROCESS

A thermal reforming process for hydrocarbon fuels; it is a noncatalytic regenerative method in which a mixture of hydrocarbon gas or vapor and air is passed through a regenerative mass that is progressively hotter in the direction of the gas flow; partial combustion occurs, liberating heat to crack the remaining hydrocarbons in a combustion zone.
