7 Position of a heat exchanger in a torque converter system. 1 presents the oil and coolant flow required for the cooling of an automatic gearbox oil system. 91 200 200 Although generally reliable, heat exchangers can break down. Some obvious symptoms can be apparent in diagnosing breakdown, such as the following: The mixing of the two agents, for example, the emulsifj4ng of oils and fluids as water enters oil systems. The pressurizing of normally low or unpressurized systems as the higher-pressure agent corrupts the lower-pressure agent through internal leakage in the heat exchanger.

Earthed junction-An earthed junction also is used for measuring in corrosive media but has higher responsiveness than the insulated type. At the same time, an earthed junction is more protected than the exposed type. 1 gives specifications for thermocouples. Pressure: A Review of Pressure Measuring Devices What Is Pressure? For a thermodynamic system consisting of a large number of molecules in the fluid state, the molecules are free to move within the boundaries of the system. For the case of real or solid boundaries, the moving molecules will strike the walls ofthe container and change direction.

Poor attention to prop shaft selection and installation are potentially dangerous to test cell personnel due to the high speeds and high inertia forces. Suitability of a coupling should include the following considerations: 1. The ability to handle the peak instantaneous cyclical torque due to the engine under consideration. 2. The effect of the torsional stiffness of the coupling proposed, usually as a result of natural torsional frequencies of the installation in which the coupling is fitted.
