Baffle

In film, a movable panel that absorbs light and sound in order to minimize unwanted reflections and echoes. A baffle is relevant to marketing because it improves film quality and therefore improves commercials.

You screw the tube, which contains internal baffles, onto the barrel to divert gases and drop noise levels--and, to an extent, recoil.
Once loosened, the screw is captured, allowing you to remove the entire baffle stack up and out of the barrel sleeve.
To simplify numerical simulation while and keep the basic characteristics of the process, following assumptions are made: (1) constant thermal properties are maintained for the shell-side fluid; (2) the heat transfer processes and fluid flow are in steady-state and turbulent; (3) the leak flows between baffle and tube and that between baffle and the shell are neglected; (4) Neglect the natural convection induced by the fluid density variation.
Our search in the literature reveals that no study has been achieved concerning the effect of the baffle curvature.
The grid-work framing suspension system is one of three suspension options possible with pinta acoustic's baffles.
A multilevel factorial design of experiments were employed by varying the reactor variables such as the impeller speed (20, 100, 250, and 350 rpm), baffles (yes or no) and temperature (50 and 60[degrees]C).
Conical baffles may be purchased from SNGPL's regional offices.
However, less attention is paid to effects angle of baffle on the efficiency of sedimentation basin.
Siemon's new SidePOD and Baffle solution has been fully validated via Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling for proven performance under maximum operating conditions.
I was curious about this, and what I found out was a little scary; some end-users are fond of yanking the monocore baffle stack out of a centerfire suppressor, and cleaning it quickly with a blasting machine or aggressive solvents, like you'd find in a machine shop or welding shop.
A comparison is shown between the slotted-weir baffle from the previous study and the labyrinth weir baffle.
The stacks have removable lids and can be equipped with optional concrete baffles to provide more concrete-to-wine contact as well as truly baffle wine movement in the event of an earthquake, according to Sonoma Cast Stone.
