Air Products patented EA technology uses activated hydrogen at ambient pressure with a starting temperature as low as 100C to remove metal oxides from electroplated solder bumps on semiconductor wafers and permit reflow of these bumps to obtain the proper shape and size for interconnection onto a package or substrate.
Other standard features include a molded-in hinge, patented "trigger release" TSA-retrofittable latches, comfortable snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handle, automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C), and resistance to UV, solvents, corrosion, and fungus.
2016) to investigate the effects of charging time, gas composition, and ambient pressure on the sparking behavior produced by a conventional ignition coil system.
For accurate altitude reporting, the encoder within the portable device must be connected to the aircraft static system because typically, the pressure within the aircraft is lower than the outside ambient pressure.
Some of the interactives recently created focus on series and parallel circuits, completing a Punnett square in genetics, projectile motion using retrofitted drones in physics, launching satellites into orbits as earth science, boiling point of liquids affected by ambient pressure, and storing electrical energy by charging a capacitor.
Furthermore, the four VLCCs and the Aframax are also equipped with volatile organic compounds (VOC) reduction systems (De-VOC) which work by controlling and maintaining the pressure in the cargo loading drop lines above ambient pressure, minimising the generation of VOCs, especially at the initial stages of cargo loading.

One of the state-of-the-art methods to prepare silica aerogel is solgel combined with ambient pressure drying.
Which makes sense since, as we should know, if ambient pressure is higher than the altimeter's setting, the aircraft will be higher than the altimeter indicates.
By operating below ambient pressure, utilizing a set of tandem ion funnels and incorporating heated carbon dioxide gas as a stabilizer, the SPIN source eliminates the sensitivity-limiting tiny orifice/heated capillary ESI-MS interface required in conventional ESI sources.
