Water discharged into a sewer system and service connections from sources other than regular connections. This includes flow from yard drains, foundation drains and around manhole covers. Inflow differs from infiltration in that it is a direct discharge into the sewer rather than a leak in the sewer itself.

RESTRICTOR

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

SAFETY CONTROL

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

AGGLOMERATION

The potential of the system for particle attraction and adhesion.

REMOTE REFRIGERATING SYSTEM

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

COMPRESSOR

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into pneumatic flow power.

REFRIGERATING CAPACITY

The ability of a system to remove heat as compared with the cooling effect produced by melting of ice.

CORROSION INHIBITOR

Additive for protecting lubricated metal surfaces against chemical attack by water or other contaminants. There are several types of corrosion inhibitors. Polar compounds wet the metal surface preferentially, protecting it with a film of oil. Other compounds may absorb water by incorporating it in a water-in-oil emulsion so that only the oil touches the metal surface. Another type of corrosion inhibitor combines chemically with the metal to present a non- reactive surface.

ADIABATIC PROCESS

A thermo-dynamic process in which no heat is extracted from or added to the system of the process.

RUNNING TIME

Amount of time an unit, equipment or system is run per hour or per 24 hours.

DEMULSIBILITY

The ability of a fluid that is insoluble in water to separate from water with which it may be mixed in the form of an emulsion.
