Amer Bin Ahmed, Managing Director of Knauf GCC and India, explained: "From the very beginning, Knauf has been practicing four main values, known as K-Values.
For the purpose of this evaluation, significance was defined as having the absolute value of the effect on the K-value greater than 20% from the control value.
The goal was to establish a primary standard and determine a K-value for NIST chamber "A" so that future calibrations could be linked to the primary standard.
Screw rotational K-value (without K-value (with speed (rpm) breaker plate) (%) breaker plate) (%) 20 0 17.
K-Value Chain Solutions is said to be a complete financial innovation intended to support airline, cargo and catering businesses in their move towards the international market.
In spite of this, sanded surfaces presented the fastest wetting, as indicated by the lowest wetting time (37 s) and highest k-value (0.
Tenders are invited for Set Of Profile Deviation Measuring Gauge P-Value And K-Value With Feeler Gauges For Bull Gear 65 Teeth Mating Pinion 16 Teeth Locos Wag-7 Ref.
To use a historic K-value for an activity determination, the source-holder as it is presently used is now raised by spacers to the h corresponding to the t at which the K-value was originally determined.
For the iPP with lower isotacticity (B), independent on the NA-content, a high k-value of about 0.
TI's 90nm process integrates a low-k dielectric, Organo-Silicate Glass (OSG) that has a k-value (dielectric constant) of 2.
When the metal was subsequently tapped from the stack melter into the launder, oxides were generated and are reflected by the elevated K-value of 0.
But HCFCs 123 and 141b can also have a negative affect on K-value because they have higher vapor-phase thermal conductivities and increased solvent properties, leading to reduced thermal insulation capability and poorer strength and demolding characteristics than are provided by all-CFC systems.
