The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is a professional organization for chemical engineers.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) is the largest U.S. trade association for the oil and natural gas industry.
American Water Works Association (AWWA) is an international non-profit, scientific and educational association founded to improve water quality and supply.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a professional association that, in its own words, "promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe" via "continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach." ASME is thus an engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, a provider of training and education, and a nonprofit organization.
A blowoff valve (BOV), dump valve or compressor bypass valve (CBV) is a pressure release system present in most turbocharged engines.
A chemical plant is an industrial process plant that manufactures (or otherwise processes) chemicals, usually on a large scale.
Combustion, or burning, is a high-temperature exothermic redox chemical reaction between a fuel (the reductant) and an oxidant, usually atmospheric oxygen, that produces oxidized, often gaseous products, in a mixture termed as smoke.
A compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume.
In the eurocode series of European standards (EN) related to construction, Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures (abbreviated EN 1993 or, informally, EC 3) describes how to design of steel structures, using the limit state design philosophy.
The eurocodes are the ten European standards (EN; harmonised technical rules) specifying how structural design should be conducted within the European Union (EU).
A fire engine (also known in some territories as a fire truck or fire appliance) is a vehicle designed primarily for firefighting operations.
A fire hose (or firehose) is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it.
Fundamentals of Stack Gas Dispersion is a book devoted to the fundamentals of air pollution dispersion modeling of continuous, buoyant pollution plumes from stationary point sources.
A gas flare, alternatively known as a flare stack, is a gas combustion device used in industrial plants such as petroleum refineries, chemical plants, natural gas processing plants as well as at oil or gas production sites having oil wells, gas wells, offshore oil and gas rigs and landfills.
Implosion is a process in which objects are destroyed by collapsing (or being squeezed in) on themselves.
An inert gas/noble gas is a gas which does not undergo chemical reactions under a set of given conditions.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations.
Natural-gas processing is a complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas.
Oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is transformed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, liquefied petroleum gas, jet fuel and fuel oils.
The path of least resistance is the physical or metaphorical pathway that provides the least resistance to forward motion by a given object or entity, among a set of alternative paths.
Petrochemicals (also known as petroleum distillates) are chemical products derived from petroleum.
070111 hydraulicspneumatics.com no opening until 90% of full pressure --> Like other pressure relief valves (PRV), pilot operated relief valves (PORV) are used for emergency relief during overpressure events (e.g., a tank gets too hot and the expanding fluid increases the pressure to dangerous levels).
Within industry, piping is a system of pipes used to convey fluids (liquids and gases) from one location to another.
A power station, also referred to as a power plant or powerhouse and sometimes generating station or generating plant, is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power.
Pressure (symbol: p or P) is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed.
A pressure vessel is a container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure.
A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action.
A rupture disc, also known as a pressure safety disc, burst disc, bursting disc, or burst diaphragm, is a non-reclosing pressure relief device that, in most uses, protects a pressure vessel, equipment or system from overpressurization or potentially damaging vacuum conditions.
A safety valve is a valve that acts as a fail-safe.
Storage tanks are containers that hold liquids, compressed gases (gas tank; or in U.S.A "pressure vessel", which is not typically labeled or regulated as a storage tank) or mediums used for the short- or long-term storage of heat or cold.
Vacuum is space devoid of matter.
