HEELING MAGNET

A permanent magnet placed vertically in a tube under the center of a marine magnetic compass, to correct for heeling error.

DISTILLATION METHOD

A method involving distilling the fluid sample in the presence of a solvent that is miscible in the sample but immiscible in water. The water distilled from the fluid is condensed and segregated in a specially-designed receiving tube or tray graduated to directly indicate the volume of water distilled. (ASTM D-95)

CAPILLARITY

A property of a solid-liquid system manifested by the tendency of the liquid in contact with the solid to rise above or fall below the level of the surrounding liquid; this phenomenon is seen in a small bore (capillary) tube.

ASME PART PFT SECTION I

Requirements for fire tube boilers.

BORE POLISHING

Excessive smoothing of the surface finish of the cylinder bore or cylinder liner in an engine to a mirror-like appearance, resulting in depreciation of ring sealing and oil consumption performance.

SHELL TYPE CONDENSER

Cylinder or receiver which contains condensing water coils or tubes.

KINEMATIC VISCOSITY

The time required for a fixed amount of an oil to flow through a capillary tube under the force of gravity. The unit of kinematic viscosity is the stoke or centistoke (1/100 of a stoke). Kinematic viscosity may be defined as the quotient of the absolute viscosity in centipoises divided by the specific gravity of a fluid, both at the same temperature Centipoises / Specific Gravity = Centistokes .

CONSTRICTOR

Tube or orifice used to restrict flow of a gas or a liquid.

CYLINDER HEAD

Plate or cap which encloses compression end of compressor cylinder or combustion chamber of engine.

CRT

Cathode ray tube terminal.
