  • citation needed
  • Depending on the particular application, wax motors potentially have advantages over magnetic solenoids:[citation needed] They provide a large hydraulic force from the expansion of the wax in the order of 4000N (Tibbitts 1988, p. 13). (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Wax heated in any sort of pot must be stirred vigorously or there can be dangerous temperature variations. (wikipedia.org)
  • cools
  • When the heat source is removed, the wax block contracts as it cools and the wax solidifies. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the greenhouse temperature has cooled sufficiently, the wax cools and solidifies, allowing the vents to close again. (wikipedia.org)
  • soluble
  • In addition, bone wax is not soluble in the bodily fluids and thus remains at the site of implantation for long periods of time if not indefinitely. (wikipedia.org)
  • The FDA has recently approved a new water-soluble bone hemostasis material called Ostene, which is designed to look and feel like bone wax. (wikipedia.org)
  • Kinetic
  • Kinetic data show that EPA and DHA provided as wax esters reaches a maximal concentration at approximately 20 h post-consumption, and may indicate delayed absorption of the fatty acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • That said, wax esters are not typically consumed in appreciable quantities in diets containing many processed foods. (wikipedia.org)
  • During melting, wax typically expands in volume by 5% to 20% (Freund 1982). (wikipedia.org)
  • The biasing force is typically 20% to 30% of the operating force and often provided by a mechanical spring or gravity-fed dead weight applied externally into the wax motor (Duerig 1990, p. 214). (wikipedia.org)
  • emollient
  • In cosmetics, rice bran wax is used as an emollient, and is the basis material for some exfoliation particles. (wikipedia.org)
  • aliphatic
  • The main components of rice bran wax are aliphatic acids (wax acids) and higher alcohol esters. (wikipedia.org)
  • The aliphatic acids consist of palmitic acid (C16), behenic acid (C22), lignoceric acid (C24), other higher wax acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • commercially
  • Modern day bone wax is commercially available in substantially non-absorbable formulations similar to Horsley's original composition, as well as in absorbable/resorbable formats. (wikipedia.org)
  • acids
  • Wax esters of sperm whales contain C12 fatty acids and C14 fatty acid and alcohols. (wikipedia.org)
  • Monounsaturated C18 is the dominant fatty acid of most fish wax esters, with the exception of roe wax esters, which have sizeable amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as 20:5n-3, 22:5n-3 and 22:6n-3. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rice bran wax also contains constituents such as free fatty acids (palmitic acid), squalene and phospholipids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Melting point = 77 - 86 °C Saponification value = 75 - 120 Iodine number = 11.1 - 17.6 Free fatty acids = 2.1 - 7.3% Phosphorus = 0.01 - 0.15% Color: Off-white to moderate orange/brown Odor: typical fatty, crayola-ish Rice bran wax bleaches and deodorizes readily INCI name: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax. (wikipedia.org)
  • waxy
  • Bone wax is a waxy substance used to help mechanically control bleeding from bone surfaces during surgical procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • oils
  • Wax motors are used heavily in the aerospace industry where they are utilized to control fuel, hydraulic, and other oils critical to safe flight today in modern airplanes. (wikipedia.org)
  • stable
  • It has been observed that rice bran wax at concentrations as low as 1 wt% in triglycerides can crystallize to form stable gels. (wikipedia.org)
  • melts
  • In this application, as the ambient temperature within the greenhouse increases, the wax melts, activating the plunger and opening the vents. (wikipedia.org)
