The act or process by which material becomes magnetized when placed in a magnetic field.

COMPASS ADJUSTMENT

The process of neutralizing undesired magnetic effects on a magnetic compass. Permanent magnets and soft iron correctors are arranged about the binnacle so that their effects are about equal and opposite to the magnetic material in the craft, thus reducing the deviations and eliminating the sectors of sluggishness and unsteadiness

NET LOAD CAPACITY

The weight of a material that can be handled, without failure, by a machine or process plus the weight of the container or device.

FLINDERS BAR

A bar of soft unmagnetized iron placed vertically near a magnetic compass to counteract deviation caused by magnetic induction in vertical soft iron of the craft

CLADDING

Process of covering one material with another and bonding them together under high pressure and temperature. Also known as bonding.

DETECTION

  1. The process of extracting information from an electro- magnetic wave. 2. In the use of radar, the recognition of the presence of a target.

FILTER MEDIUM

The porous material that performs the actual process of filtration.

BATCH

  1. The quantity of material required for or produced by one operation. 2. An amount of material subjected to some unit chemical process or physical mixing process to make the final product substantially uniform.

CORELESS-TYPE INDUCTION HEATER

A device in which a charge is heated directly by induction, with no magnetic core material linking the charge. Also known as coreless-type induction furnace.

PERMAFROST DRILLING

Boreholes drilled in 397 permeameter permeate in a test specimen of ferromagnetic material by a given magnetic intensity, to permit computation of the magnetic permeability of the material.

DEWAXING

Removing wax from a material or object; a process used to separate solid hydrocarbons from petroleum.
