The duration of each fill impacts a number of important cost factors--namely, the amount of evaporative loss, the labor costs associated with barrel topping and the cost associated with the depreciation of space within your facility.
Since the oil composition changes during the evaporative loss of its lighter components, the temperatures of successive cooling-heating cycles were continually raised from 50[degrees]C to 190[degrees]C to keep the vapor pressure in the range of [10.sup.-6] to [10.sup.-3] torr.
Evaporative loss of urine was not statistically different for all folded sets of diapers (Razi et el., 1997).
(Evaporative loss is minimal.) The water also circulates through radiant tubing in the concrete floor (cool water in summer, hot in winter); the cooled floor will absorb heat.
Further reductions in evaporative losses can be achieved using subsurface drip irrigation--as much as 4 to 5 inches less evaporative loss compared to mid-elevation spray irrigation in the windy Panhandle environment.
The mass of the house helps keep the pool room at a stable temperature, prevents evaporative loss to wind and sun, and allows the owners to swim year-round.
An update on Murray River water resources emphasised the drought preparations underway for the Murray system, which included waiving of the end of May storage target for Lake Victoria in order to reduce evaporative losses by storing more water in Dartmouth Dam.
[UKPRwire, Fri Jun 14 2019] Organic mulching materials such as fresh-cut forage, straw and hay are expected to gain significant traction in Mulching Materials Market as they hold the potential for easy use, suppresses weed germination and reduces evaporative losses of the soil moisture.
[ClickPress, Thu Apr 25 2019] Organic mulching materials such as fresh-cut forage, straw and hay are expected to gain significant traction in Mulching Materials Market as they hold the potential for easy use, suppresses weed germination and reduces evaporative losses of the soil moisture.
The causes of lower economic productivity in Sindh include water-logging and drainage, water losses and rice cultivation, which has higher evaporative losses compared to other crops, on a large part of agricultural land.
The CCHP system is a closed loop system which reduces evaporative losses that would be incurred through traditional systems, critical to often drought-ridden California where water rates reflect the scarcity of the resource.
