English term or phrase: 75%-wt
For the conditioning of the phosphatides, phosphoric acid of 75 %-wt is added to the crude oil by a membrane dosing pump, downstream of which the dosage amount is measured by means of an inductive flow meter.

What does "wt" stand for? Thanks a bunch!

  -> Gracias

agree  M. C. Filgueira: Aunque, en realidad, lo correcto es decir "en masa" (o, tal vez mejor, "m/m"), puesto que por lo general se determinan masas, no pesos. Este uso del término "weight/peso" en vez de "mass/masa" es muy frecuente, tanto en castellano como en inglés.

  -> Gracias. Tienes razón, pero creo que sería entrar en detalle muy fino. La idea es proporcionar un términor en españo, que corresponda al original en inlgés. ¿Estás de acuerdo?
