Solenoid voltmeter

energy

A solenoid voltmeter is a specific type of voltmeter electricians use to test electrical power circuits.

Solid

energy

In a solid, constituent particles are closely packed together.

Solid earth

energy

Solid earth refers to "the earth beneath our feet" or terra firma, the planet's solid surface and its interior.

Solid fuel

energy

Solid fuel refers to various types of solid material that are used as fuel to produce energy and provide heating, usually released through combustion.

Solid oxide fuel cell

energy

An electrochemical conversion device that produces electricity directly from oxidizing a fuel. Fuel cells are characterized by their electrolyte material such as the solid oxide fuel cell which has a solid oxide or ceramic electrolyte.

Solids

marine

The non-volatile matter in a paint composition, i.e. the ingredients. After drying they create the paint film.

Solids control

energy

Solids control is a process used in drilling rigs which use drilling fluid.

Solid-state electronics

energy

Solid-state electronics means semiconductor electronics: electronic equipment using semiconductor devices such as transistors, diodes and integrated circuits. The term is also used for devices in which semiconductor electronics which have no moving parts replace devices with moving parts, such as the solid-state relay.

Solid-state relay

energy

A solid state relay is an electronic switching device that switches on or off when an external voltage (AC or DC) is applied across its control terminals.

Solubility

energy

Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a solid, liquid or gaseous solvent.

Solution

energy

In chemistry, a solution is a special type of homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances.

Solutions

energy

Suggestions to achieve an end goal or alternatives to existing processes.

Solvation

energy

Solvation (or dissolution) describes the interaction of solvent with dissolved molecules.

Solvent

energy

A solvent (from the Latin solvō, "loosen, untie, solve") is a substance that dissolves a solute, resulting in a solution.

Solvent-free coating

marine

It is a 100% solid coating. For practical purposes this may be extended to cover materials containing a small amount of volatile constituent of the binder (solventless).

Solvents

marine

Liquids, usually volatile, used in the manufacture of paint to dissolve or disperse the binder-forming constituents, and which evaporate during drying and therefore, do not become a part of the dried film.

Sonar

marine

Sound Navigation Ranging. Electronic equipment which provides the means to search and detect submerged obstructions such as reefs or sunken ships that endanger sea routes.

Soot blowers

marine

Equipment used to remove the products of combustion from boiler tubs.

Sophisticated paints

marine

Paints based on unconventional binders, such as epoxies, chlorinated rubbers, vinyls etc.

Sound power level

energy

The acoustic energy emitted by a source as a pressure wave
