Module C (Quizlet) 5

Technical Escort - Chemical Operations

Distillation The process of purification of compounds based on their volatility
Simple distillation Used for a mixture in which the boiling point of the liquids differ by at least 70 degrees Celsius
Fractional distillation Used for mixtures which the boiling point of the liquids in nearly similar or differs 25 degrees Celsius, cannot be separated by simple distillation
Reflux Used to create custom compounds that do not normally join together, with tight temperature controls and slow additions over an extended period of time
Vacuum distillation Special method of separating compounds at pressure lower than the standard atmospheric pressure, the compounds boil below their normal boiling temperature, and preferred for compounds boiling points are above 200 degrees Celsius, due to decomposing
Separation Used in liquid-liquid extractions to separate components of a mixture into two immiscible solvent phases of different densities
Filtration Used to separate liquids from solids
Extraction Used and required when the desired compound has a limited solubility in a solvent and the impurity is insoluble in that solvent
What kind of technology does the FirstDefender use? RAMAN spectrometry
What is the maximum operating temperature range for the FirstDefender? -4 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit
What is the maximum storage temperature range for the FirstDefender? -22 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit
What is the maximum altitude the FirstDefender can be used in? 6,600 feet or 2,000 meters
What is the maximum immersion depth for the FirstDefender? 1 meter for 30 minutes
What are the three fail results for the FirstDefender? Not enough signal, check test sample or have unit re-serviced
How long can a scan delay take for a FirstDefender? 15 to 120 seconds
What is the ionization potential of a MultiRae? 10.6 eV
What does MSST stand for? Maximum Safe Storage Temperature
What does SATD stand for? Self accelerating temperature decomposition
Self accelerating temperature decomposition (SATD) definition Lowest temperature at which an organic peroxide in a typical vessel or shipping package will undergo a self-accelerating decomposition within one week

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
