So that’s what makes an air lift pump work; density difference. Density difference between the lighter air–water mixture in the riser tube and the more dense water in the fish tank. In Fig. 1, the pressure at point A will be greater than the pressure at point B. It’s true that the height of liquid in the riser tube is triple the height of water in the tank. But because of the bubbles of air in the riser tube, the density of the mixed phase fluid in the riser is small compared to the density of water.

Connecting natural gas to plant air killed 17 workers at a Louisiana refinery. MAWP (maximum allowable working pressure) This is the legal maximum pressure that a process vessel is allowed to experience. Above this pressure, a relief valve should open to protect the vessel from catastrophic failure. FLA (full-limit amps) This is the maximum amperage a motor should draw before it automatically trips off—rather like the 20-A circuit breaker at home. ” That means the vessel has been post-weld heat treated to remove stresses in the vessel wall created by welding during fabrication.

Should we add more heat to the big can or less heat? If we add less heat to the big can, the vapor flow to the No. 1 condensing coil will diminish. As the water is less volatile than the alcohol, most of the reduction in vapor flow will be at the expense of water vaporization. indd 9 12/04/14 2:23 PM 10 Chapter One volatile alcohol too. However, the primary effect will be to increase the percentage of alcohol in the vodka. This is good. The secondary effect is to reduce the vodka production. This is bad.
