a device for reducing the velocity of air flow from a mechanical duct system supplying air. Its shape is usually circular or square and it is set in the ceiling at predetermined locations to diffuse air within that space.
A grille over an air supply duct with vanes that distribute the discharging air in a specific pattern or direction.
A device used to produce small air bubbles when air is passed through it. Also, part of a pump impeller that directs the flow of water toward the center of the impeller.
a device forming part of an air conditioning unit or duct system to deliver and diffuse air efficiently without causing discomfort or cold draughts
A stationary passage surrounding an impeller, in which velocity pressure imparted to the flow medium by the impeller is converted into static pressure.( 020)
An aromatherapy accessory used to gently disperse essential oils into the air.
This piece of bodywork is underneath the rear of the car and is intended to manage airflow as it exits. A good diffuser design can generate significant down force.
The rear section of the car's floor or undertray where the air flowing under the car exits. The faster its exit, the lower the air pressure beneath the car, and hence the more downforce the car generates. The design of a diffuser is crucial.
A porous plate, tube or other device through which air is forced and divided into minute bubbles for diffusion in the water. A diffuser can also be an overdrain on a sand filter. A diffuser is also used on a closed-face impeller on a pump to concentrate water flow to the center of the impeller.
A stationary casing, like a volute, that houses the moving impeller. Diffusers are compact in design, enabling the pump to create higher pressure heads.
This sits close to the floor below the rear wing. It funnels the air to slow it down, lowers the pressure and accelerates it out of the back of the F1 car.
A device which helps to release the fragrance molecules into the air
The stationary portion of the compressor that increases the static pressure of the air or air/fuel mixture.
A device for distributing air in a forced air heating/cooling system. Often flush-mounted on a ceiling, it has slats to direct the conditioned air evenly into the room or space. Components of the ventilation system that distribute and diffuse air to promote air circulation in the occupied space. A lens in a light fixture to diffuse light
a small dish sits overtop a tea light candle and disperses fragrant oils.
A staionary housing similar to a volute in which the impeller rotates. Compact in design, it enables the pump to produce higher heads/pressures.
A hosing or vaned part that fits around the impeller. The diffuser strips water from the rotating impeller and forces it out the discharge line of the pump, reducing the velocity of water through the pump while increasing the static pressure. In some pump models the diffuser and the volute are designed as a single part.
aft structural member of an engine. It receives high velocity air from the centrifugal impeller and decreases velocity and increases air pressure. In the combustor, a diffuser forms a divergent flow path for the exhaust gases.
A device to reduce the air flow velocity.
The rear section of the car's floor or undertray where the air flowing under the car exits. The design of the diffuser is crucial as it controls the speed at which the air exits. The faster its exit, the lower the air pressure beneath the car, and hence the more downforce the car generates.
1. A device that distributes light evenly. 2. HVAC air outlet, which directs air widely in a fan-shaped pattern.
A diffuser is an aromatherapy device that gently dispenses essential oils into the air.
A diffuser is the mechanical device that is designed to control the characteristics of a fluid at the entrance to a thermodynamic open system. Diffusers are used to slow the fluid's velocity and to enhance its mixing into the surrounding fluid. In contrast, a nozzle is often intended to increase the discharge velocity and to direct the flow in one particular direction.
A diffuser, in an automotive context, is usually a shaped section of the car underbody which improves the car's aerodynamic properties by enhancing the transition between the high-velocity airflow underneath the car and the much slower freestream airflow of the ambient atmosphere. It works by providing a space for the underbody airflow to decelerate and expand so that the boundary between the car's airflow and "external" airflow is less turbulent, and it also provides a degree of "wake infill" (the wake being a turbulent area of low pressure that is caused by the passage of the vehicle through the air; this can cause pressure drag).
An Air Diffuser or Membrane Diffuser is an aeration device typically in the shape of a disc, tube or plate, which is used to transfer oxygen into sewage or industrial wastewater. Oxygen is required by bacteria resident in the water to break down the pollutants. Diffusers use either rubber membranes or ceramic elements typcially and produce either fine or coarse bubbles.
