RESTRICTOR

A device for producing a deliberate pressure drop or resistance in a line by reducing the cross-sectional flow area.

SKIN CONDENSER

Condenser using the outer surface of the cabinet as the heat radiating medium.

SAFETY CONTROL

Device to stop unit, equipment or system if unsafe pressure and/or temperatures and/or dangerous conditions are reached.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

The ability of a material to resist surface wear.

CUTTING WEAR

Comes about when hard surface asperities or hard particles that have embedded themselves into a soft surface and plough grooves into the opposing harder surface, e.g., a journal.

CONTAMINANT CAPACITY

The weight of a specified artificial contaminant that must be added to the influent to produce a given differential pressure across a filter at specified conditions. Used as an indication of relative service life. Also known as Dirt capacity, Dust capacity

ADHESIVE WEAR

Often referred to as galling, scuffing, scoring, or seizing. It happens when sliding surfaces contact one another, causing fragments to be pulled from one surface and to adhere to the other.

ISO SOLID CONTAMINANT CODE (ISO 4406)

A code assigned on the basis of the number of particles per unit volume greater than 5 and 15 micrometers in size. Range numbers identify each increment in the particle population throughout the spectrum of levels.

REMOTE REFRIGERATING SYSTEM

Refrigerating system in which condensing unit is away from space to be cooled.
