From this Article:
A pressure relief valve is a mechanical device which allows a gas or liquid to escape from a section of a fluidic system when the pressure exceeds a predetermined limit....
(Fluid Processing Equipment)
From this Article:
Ion propulsion systems offer a more efficient use of fuel and electrical power as compared to other propulsion technologies. Therefore, ion thrusters are the preferred option for a wide range of space...
(Automotive Equipment and Products)
From this Article:
A leading automotive manufacturer struggled to find a cost-effective solution to seal cross-drilled holes in transmissions and engines reliably. The problem resulted in customer leakage complaints,...

From this Article:
The accumulation of ice on an aircraft causes two problems: additional weight and changes in the airplane's aerodynamics. Both issues impact fuel efficiency, resulting in higher costs for the airline...
(Calibration and Testing Services)
From this Article:
ENGINEERS TASKED WITH MANAGING fluid flow talk about both holes and calibrated orifices, but they are two distinct entities. A hole can be any opening, but a calibrated orifice is specially designed...
(Hydraulic Equipment and Components)
From this Article:
Safety screens are precision components designed to protect orifices, relief valves, and other critical hydraulic fluid-control components from rogue contamination. However, safety screens are not...
