|Band Saw Steel (Wood)
||(english) A hardened tempered bright polished high carbon cold rolled spring steel strip produced especially for use in the manufacture of band saws for sawing wood, non ferrous metals, and plastics. Usually carries some nickel and with a Rockwell value of approximately C40/45.
|Bent Axis Pumps
||(english) In this pump, the pistons are at an angle to the drive shaft and Thrust Plate. The piston block shaft is connected to the drive shaft by a universal joint, not shown. The drive shaft, thrust plate, piston block shaft, and piston block all revolve. The connecting rods are attached to the thrust plate and revolve with it, unlike the swash plate pump where the piston rods slide past a stationary swash plate. The outlet ports are semi-circular holes in the Valve Plate, shown on the far right of the animation on edge and in a head-on view below, right. As the pump revolves, half the pistons suck in fluid as they pass over the intake port. The other pistons discharge their fluid through the outlet port. This pump should be compared to the radial piston pump, swash plate pump, and wobble pump.
|Bright Annealed Wire
||(english) Steel wire bright drawn and annealed in controlled non-oxidizing atmosphere so that surface oxidation is reduced to a minimum and the surface remains relatively bright.
||(english) A process carried out usually in a controlled furnace atmosphere, so surface does not oxidize, remaining bright.
|Bright Annealing 2
||(english) The process of annealing in a protective atmosphere so as to prevent discoloration of the bright surface desired.
|Bright Basic Wire
||(english) Bright steel wire, slightly softer than Bright Bessemer Wire. Used for round head wood screws, bolts and rivets, electric welded chain, etc.
|Bright Bessemer Wire
||(english) Stiff bright wire of hard temper. Normally wire is drawn down to size without annealing.
||(english) An acid solution into which pieces are dipped in order to obtain a clean, bright surface.
||(english) Chemical polishing of aluminum, often by treatment with a mixture of nitric acid and phosphoric acid, yielding a mirror-shiny (specular) highly reflective surface. It is almost always followed by anodizing to protect the surface and provide some choice of color.
