throughput

[′thrü‚pu̇t]
(chemical engineering)
The volume of feedstock charged to a process equipment unit during a specified time.
(communications)
A measure of the effective rate of transmission of data by a communications system.
(computer science)
The productivity of a data-processing system, as expressed in computing work per minute or hour.
(mining engineering)
The quantity of ore or other material passed through a mill or a section of a mill in a given time or at a given rate.

throughput

(1)
The rate at which a processor can work expressed in instructions per second or jobs per hour or some other unit of performance.

throughput

The amount of work performed by a computer within a given time. It is a combination of internal processing speed (32-bit vs. 64-bit, etc.), peripheral speeds (I/O) and the efficiency of the operating system, other system software and applications all working together. Transactions processed per second (TPS) is one metric commonly used to gauge throughput. See 32-bit computing and 64-bit computing.

Based on the above derived average throughputs for both secondary and primary users per channel, the generalised average throughput for multichannel case can be formulated by inserting (14), (19), and (25) into (5), respectively, for secondary users.
Features include the ability to store, export and import formulations, as well as simultaneously controlling extruder throughput.
Facilitating the adoption of the techniques are software to integrate workflow, search chemical properties and analyze testing results, Although the introduction of faster, more accurate and multiplexed analytical techniques for materials analysis may just be the evolution of technology, it is an evolution characterized by higher throughput, and can be expected to be influenced by the techniques currently employed by the chemical industry's largest firms and by the pharmaceutical industry's experiences and advances.
However, it has little elevation at our typical throughputs because both stages have the same volume displacement, and the volume of gas entering the second stage is reduced by the compression ratio of the first stage.
With the results of this analysis an objective, quantitative basis, leaders can make changes in inputs and throughputs to better align the organization to its environmental and create products and services that more closely accomplish the desired outputs.[3]
The new design increases throughput by accommodating more angled blades per hub (up to 36 instead of 18) or more straight blades (40 instead of 26).
With the help of FET it was possible to raise the throughput by up to 200% and realise a cost effective debottlenecking.
The fact that a smaller extruder/gear pump combination achieves the same throughputs and line speeds of its next size up extruder counterparts is of major commercial significance.
They extend the Luxor throughput range from the previous maximum of 2100 to 2200 lb/hr of ABS or PC up to 4400 lb/hr.
Waterslide pelletizing systems with throughput rates as high as 30,000 lb/hr use an inclined water conveyor to condition strands prior to dry or wet cutting by a strand pelletizer.
Horsepower from 50 to 600 and throughputs to 15,000 lb/hr.
