Related Terms

HYDROCYCLONE

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

CYCLONE

1. A meteorological phenomena characterized by relatively low atmospheric pressure and winds which blow counterclockwise around the center in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. 2. The name by which a tropical storm having winds of 34 knots or greater is known in the South Indian Ocean.

CYCLONIC WINDS

The winds associated with a low pressure area and constituting part of a cyclone

EYE OF THE STORM

The center of a tropical cyclone marked by relatively light winds, confused seas, rising temperature, lowered relative humidity, and often by clear skies. The general area of lowest atmospheric pressure of a cyclone is called STORM CENTER.

FRONTAL CYCLONE

In general, any cyclone associated with a front; often used synonymously with WAVE CYCLONE or with EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE (as opposed to tropical cyclones, which are non-frontal).

WAVE CYCLONE

A cyclone which forms and moves along a front. The circulation about the cyclone center tends to produce a wavelike deformation of the front. The wave cyclone is the most frequent form of extratropical cyclone (or low). Also called WAVE DEPRESSION.

PATH

The intended route of a ship or cyclone as compared to the route it actually takes, the track.

CYCLIC CATALYTIC REFORMING PROCESS

A method for the production of low-Btu 142 other fluids by centrifugal means; used to remove dust from air or other fluids, steam from water, and water from steam, and in certain applications to separate particles into two or more size classes. Also known as cyclone classifier.

OFFSET LINE

A secondary line established close to and roughly parallel with the primary survey line to which it is referenced by measured offsets.

AUXILIARY CONTACTS

A set of contacts that perform a secondary function, usually in relation to the operation of a set of primary contacts.
