CARBON MONOXIDE -A poisonous gas that is made while a fuel is burning, especially if there
is not quite enough air. The gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, but it can cause illness or
death. See warning on the Warning page at front of manual.
CONDENSATION - A liquid formed from a vapor. Moisture carried in warm air will condense
when it reaches a cold area, such as the surface of a fuel tank in sub-zero weather.
CONTAMINATED - Made impure by contact or mixture. Exhaust fumes contain a poisonous gas
which will contaminate the air in the nearby area.
CORROSION - A gradual wearing away caused by chemical action. Metals exposed to salt
water are likely to corrode.
DETERIORATE - A worsening of condition usually as a result or age or hostile environment, as
opposed to mechanical damage.
DIAPHRAGM - An elastic material used as a boundary to seal and separate two areas. A pump
diaphragm allows the volume of the pump bowl to be varied thus producing the pumping
DRAW BAR - A single piece handle used for lifting heavy objects.
DRY ROT - Rotting due to lack or air circulating around area.
EXPENDABLE - An item that is not repairable and is discarded if damaged.
EXPOSURE - Being in the presence of something, or in contact with something. Skin is exposed
to cleaning solvent when the solvent contacts the skin during cleaning operations.
FILTER - A device which removes dirt from air or a fluid.
FLASH POINT - The lowest temperature at which the vapors of a solvent will ignite and burn.
FLAPPER - A restriction in a line which limits the flow of fluid, or gases, to a single
direction. Flappers used in conjunction with a diaphragm pump and power source enable the
pump to push/pull fluid in desired direction.
GALLING - A condition in which transfer of metal occurs between two parts made of like
material (usually steel), usually occurring when mated parts have limited relative motion
under high loads.
