  GASKET
  Material inserted between two contact surfaces to ensure aair-tight or fluid-tight seal.
   
  GAUGE
  Thickness of steel used to manufacture filter vessels, tubesheets, retainer wires, etc.
   
  GLASS FIBER
  Proper reference to a fibrous material made from glass that is commonly as a filter and separator medium. May be used in blanket or tube form and, due to the random dispersion of the fibers, makes good filter medium. Also referred to as fiberglass.
   
  GLAZED FINISH
  A finishing process that produces a smooth highly polished surface using extreme temperature. Eliminates filter migration.
   
  GRADIENT DENSITY
  A media of different densities, with one media packed around the center tube and a media of less density around the outside. Both medias are tapered at opposite ends, which allows high flow through the less dense media, and tighter filtration through the dense media.
   
  GRAVITY SETTLING
  Liquid droplets will settle out of a gas phase if the gravitational force acting on the droplets is greater than the drag force of the gas flowing around the droplets.
   
  GPM
  Gallons Per Minute.
   
  GRAIN
  Weight unit of measure where one pound equals 7000 grains.
   
  GRAIN LOADING
  The amount of particulate by weight in a given volume of air. (Grains/Cu. Ft.); 1 lb. = 7,000 grains.
   
  GRAVITY FILTER
  Filter in which the driving force for filtration is provided solely by the head of liquor above the filter medium.
   
  GRAVITY SEPARATION
  Separation of immiscible phases resulting from a difference gravity by coalescing.
   
  GROSS SOLIDS
  Describes what may be considered an abnormal heavy solid load.
   
  GROSS WATER
  Describes what may be considered an abnormal heavy water load.
