coffee production is the industrial process of converting the seven trust fruit of the coffee plant into the finished coffee.the coffee cherry has the fruit or pulp removed leaving the seed or bean which is then dried. while all green coffee is processed, the method that is used varies and can have a significant effect on the flavor of roasted and brewed coffee.
the rotor is a moving component of an electromagnetic system in the electric motor, electric generator, or alternator.its rotation is due to the interaction between the windings and magnetic fields which produces a torque around the rotor's axis.
directional boring, also referred to as horizontal directional drilling hdd , is a minimal impact trenchless method of installing underground utilities such as pipe, conduit, or cables in a relatively shallow arc or radius along a prescribed underground path using a surface-launched drilling rig. directional boring/hdd offers significant environmental advantages over traditional cut and cover .
continuous production is a flow production method used to manufacture, produce, or process materials without interruption.continuous production is called a continuous process or a continuous flow process because the materials, either dry bulk or fluids that are being processed are continuously in motion, undergoing chemical reactions or subject to mechanical or heat treatment.
a motor soft starter is a device used with ac electrical motors to temporarily reduce the load and torque in the power train and electric current surge of the motor during start-up. this reduces the mechanical stress on the motor and shaft, as well as the electrodynamic stresses on the attached power cables and electrical distribution network, extending the lifespan of the system.
later, the boards were radially sawn in a type of sawmill called a clapboard mill, producing vertical-grain clapboards. the more commonly used boards in new england are vertical-grain boards. depending on the diameter of the log, cuts are made from 4 1 ⁄ 2 to 6 1 ⁄ 2 inches 110 to 170 mm deep along the full length of the log.
brine treatment is commonly encountered when treating cooling tower blowdown, produced water from steam assisted gravity drainage sagd , produced water from natural gas extraction such as coal seam gas, frac flowback water, acid mine or acid rock drainage, reverse osmosis reject, chlor-alkali wastewater, pulp and paper mill effluent, and waste .
fusion bonded epoxy coating, also known as fusion-bond epoxy powder coating and commonly referred to as fbe coating, is an epoxy-based powder coating that is widely used to protect steel pipe used in pipeline construction, concrete reinforcing bars and on a wide variety of piping connections, valves etc. from corrosion.fbe coatings are thermoset polymer coatings.
glutinous rice oryza sativa var. glutinosa; also called sticky rice, sweet rice or waxy rice is a type of rice grown mainly in southeast and east asia, northeastern india and bhutan which has opaque grains, very low amylose content, and is especially sticky when cooked. it is widely consumed across asia. it is called glutinous latin: glūtinōsus in the sense of being glue-like or sticky .
suzuki gb plc are the manufacturer's agent and distributor of automobiles, motorcycles, atv's and marine engines in the united kingdom with a head office based in milton keynes. a wholly owned subsidiary of the suzuki motor corporation operates as suzuki cars ireland limited in ireland.
fiber cement siding is a class of composite siding that is usually made from a combination of cement, cellulose wood , sand, and water. they are either coated or painted in the factory or installed and then painted after installation. fiber cement is popular for its realistic look, durability, low-maintenance properties, and fire resistance .
a road roller sometimes called a roller-compactor, or just roller is a compactor-type engineering vehicle used to compact soil, gravel, concrete, or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations.similar rollers are used also at landfills or in agriculture. road rollers are frequently referred to as steamrollers, regardless of their method of propulsion.
a limit switch is an electromechanical device that consists of an actuator mechanically linked to a set of contacts. when an object comes into contact with the actuator, the device operates the contacts to make or break an electrical connection.
a transformer is a passive electrical device that transfers electrical energy from one electrical circuit to another, or multiple circuits.a varying current in any one coil of the transformer produces a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core, which induces a varying electromotive force across any other coils wound around the same core. . electrical energy can be transferred between .
shot peening is a cold working process used to produce a compressive residual stress layer and modify the mechanical properties of metals and composites. it entails striking a surface with shot round metallic, glass, or ceramic particles with force sufficient to create plastic deformation.. in machining, shot peening is used to strengthen and relieve stress in components like steel .
an oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially the marine ecosystem, due to human activity, and is a form of pollution.the term is usually given to marine oil spills, where oil is released into the ocean or coastal waters, but spills may also occur on land.oil spills may be due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling .
this is a list of astm international standards. standard designations usually consist of a letter prefix and a sequentially assigned number. this may optionally be followed by a dash and the last two digits of the year in which the standard was adopted.
automation or automatic control is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications and vehicles with minimal or reduced human intervention.
