pressure resistance

pressure resistance

[′presh·ər ri‚zis·təns]
(fluid mechanics)
In fluid dynamics, a normal stress caused by acceleration of the fluid, which results in a decrease in pressure from the upstream to the downstream side of an object acting perpendicular to the boundary. Also known as pressure drag.

High permeability quotient, good pressure resistance.
Moreover, improved performance characteristics, such as high chemical resistance, contamination retention capacity, and high burst pressure resistance, are likely to contribute to the increasing demand for return line filters in the coming future.
"Maximising fibre content can raise tensile strength up to 957 MPa, which in turn affects the burst pressure resistance of a pipe or vessel - a key performance indicator," said Joris Wismans, technical director, Sabic FRT.
Establish the minimum nominal part thickness that delivers sufficient high temperature burst pressure resistance.
This is especially the case for high-rise towers, where we have demonstrated our performance time and again, in installations that demand high temperature and pressure resistance. Therefore, in line with our overall expansion plans, and our UAE market penetration, the event presents an opportunity for API to generate awareness regarding the ultimate pipe solutions we have to offer.
They're suitable for applications in which chemical-, scratch-, and high pressure resistance are necessary.
PP-RCT grades can also be evaluated by SABIC's customers for the production of pipes with higher pressure resistance than standard PP-R with the same diameter, or thinner pipes with the same pressure resistance.
During the work on the project, extensive mechanical stress tests were carried out, especially with regard to temperature and pressure resistance and gas permeability.
First issued in 1999, the latest update to DNV-RP F101 includes a new assessment methodology on how to estimate the pressure resistance of a pipeline containing long axial grooving (the methodology is also applicable for pipelines with other patterns of internal corrosion), and assessment of internal corrosion development with time.
"Currently, Iran is among the four countries that possess the knowledge and technology of producing GRP pipes in diameters of 100-4000 mm and the pressure resistance of 1 to 32 bars," Zahir Emami said.
With 1.8 kilograms of MasterSeal 6100 FX powder per square meter and down to a temperature of-10[degrees]C, after hardening, a continuous membrane is formed, capable to withstand positive water pressure resistance up to five bars and to bridge cracks up to two millimeters.
