1refrigerante masculino(effect/gas/liquid) (before noun) refrigerante
- In the last half of the twentieth century, the manufacture of chlorofluorocarbons for use as propellants in aerosol sprays and refrigerants has resulted in a slow mixing of these compounds with the stratosphere.
- The old chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, or CFC's, that were shown to be harmful to the ozone layer have not been installed in new refrigerators since 1993.
- However, he points out that halogen oxidants also form during the sunlight-triggered breakdown of industrial chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants.
- Chlorofluorocarbons were developed and used as refrigerants, blowing agents for polyurethane foam, and propellants in spray cans.
- My example of an immediate man-made global environmental crisis is the one created by the profligate use of chlorinated-fluorocarbon refrigerants - the gas used in refrigerators.
- Today, key commercial uses of liquefied gas include liquefied refrigerants for cryogenic application and liquefied petroleum gases for fuel use.
- For example, chlorofluorocarbons have been used in the second half of the 20th century as nonflammable refrigerants, industrial solvents, foaming agents, and aerosol propellants.
- In addition, conventional air conditioners use refrigerants made of chlorine compounds, suspected contributors to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming.
- These new greener chillers use sound waves for cooling instead of environment-damaging chemical refrigerants linked to global warming.
- Instead of using water, these new machine guns will use modern refrigerants to keep the gun's barrel cooled in a closed system that could be used on armored vehicles and static positions.
- Formic acid is also used in fumigants, refrigerants, solvents for perfumes and lacquers, brewing, and silvering glass.
- We've removed a fair bit of heat from the refrigerant - it's now a high-pressure liquid at roughly ambient temperature.
- An expansion valve would then advance to transform the liquid refrigerant into a cold, gaseous form, so as to once again absorb the warm air inside your automobile.
- In addition to controlling pressure, fluid-control valves regulate the rate the flow of fluid i.e. how brake fluid, transmission oil, refrigerants and other fluids are used in the car.
- Oakhurst became the first major company in the region to use non-chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants in all of its fleet.
- Many products, such as refrigerants and solvents that have been developed over the past 50 years, used substances called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
- The company now promises to switch all of their cooling units to environmentally friendly refrigerants by 2004.
- Some of the green features of this facility are raised floors, insulated glass, gas-fired absorption chillers using water as a refrigerant, a dehumidification system and efficient lighting.
- The warm, gaseous refrigerant is sucked from the evaporator into the compressor, where the pressure is raised to the condensation pressure of the refrigerant in order for the phase change to occur.
- Replacement refrigerants have now been developed which are less harmful to the ozone layer.
