GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
French term or phrase:
T°C & Q (paramètres du vapeur d'alimentation l'échangeur)
temperature [degree centigrades] & flow rate (parameters of the steam entering the heat exchanger)
French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering
French term or phrase:T°, Q
Maintenance manual for a steel manufacturer:
In a section dealing with exchangers:
Après avoir vérifié que les conditions de la vapeur d'alimentation sont dans les normes (T°, Q), au poste opérateur, vérifier le bon fonctionnement de l'échangeur en s'assurant que la température de consigne en sortie de l'appareil est dans la limite des tolérances. Des chutes sensibles de la température peuvent être dues à des causes diverses: perte de rendement de l'appareil causée par l'entartrage du faisceau, dysfonctionnement de la sonde thermique, de la vanne de température, etc.
Does anyone know what these are. I'm also wondering if the degree symbol in T° is an error.
I am not very comfortable with assigning quantity of heat to Q as we cannot talk about the quantity of
heat, but only changes in the amount of heat... unless we are taking 0 Kelvin as the reference = 0 units of heat from which to measure Q - very unusual
Hi Teresa: Yes, I have never seen T^0 before. As far as I know, it does not represent anything.
T, would be temperature (measured on the Kelvin scale); thus T is a property while the unit is K. (without the degree sign).
To answer the question posed by Dusty, yes, Q is most likely quantity of heat, especially that it appears
after T. Q is an energy term (measured in joules, aclories, etc.) while T is an intesive property.

T° should be temperature in degrees (centigrade) Q = quantity of heat (not sure about this one)

Explanation: If the temperature is measured in Celsius, then convention dictates the us of "t". "T" is
reserved for the Kelvin scale designation of the property of temperature. If the little circle
were a dot on the Q, then that would turn it into heat flow rate (derivative of Q with respect to time. As it stands, I don't thik T^0 has any acceptable connotation.
