Heat source orientation and gravity have less effect on sintered powder metal heat pipes due to the fact that the sintered powder metal wick has the strongest capillary action
These practices promote speedy capillary action
causing rising damp in most buildings.
Maximum height of capillary action
in the capillaries can be expressed:
A reaction channel measuring 30 x 2 x 0.1 mm is created in which the individual test steps are performed by capillary action
. A further energy director runs around the outer contour of the upper part to fix the complete film.
In simple terms, rising damp is the upward movement of moisture through walls and sometimes floors by capillary action
from below ground.
Condensed liquid flows along internal structures by means of wicking or capillary action
through narrow pathways and sintered metal guides.
The meeting observed that had WAPDA been consulted prior to construction of the dual carriage way leading to Kotli, it would have recommended special measures in view of the possible capillary action
by Mangla reservoir.
Heat transfer using a loop heat pipe is based on the same sort of capillary action
that absorbs water in fibers, sponges, and plants.
Blood is collected via capillary action
into the collection capillary of the Minivette POCT.
Place a drop of blood, urine or saliva on the strip and the paper's capillary action
wicks it along to react with the proteins, producing color changes that give health care workers quick, unambiguous and reliable information about their patients.
This method involves the uptake of bead suspension by capillary action
into glass micro-capillary up to a certain mark sealing its bottom packing/centrifuging the beads and reading the number of beads from graduated marks on micro-capillary or a reference scale.
The test process is simple: the user pricks his/her finger with the lancet, the capillary action
in the small test tube collects the precise amount of blood required for the test, and then the arm is flipped over to deposit the collection onto the test strip.
