  TENSILE STRENGTH
  The force required to pull apart the fabric; this is designated by the measure of resistance to a testing machine (in pounds) that a fabric provides before the material breaks. The test strip width depends on the type of fabric.
   
  TERMINAL PRESSURE
  Pressure drop across the unit at the time system is shut down, or when the maximum allowable pressure drop is reached.
   
  TERMINAL VELOCITY
  Steady velocity achieved by a falling particle when gravitational forces are balanced viscous forces.
   
  THREE PHASE SEPARATOR
  A vessel used to separate gas and two immiscible liquids of different densities (e.g.: gas, water, oil, etc.)
   
  THREE-STAGE FILTER SEPARATORS
  Liquid prefilter coalescer separators containing three kinds or types of replaceable elements. Air/gas filter separators containing two kinds of replaceable elements in addition to a first-stage baffle.
   
  THROUGHPUT
  The amount of solution which will pass through a filter prior to it clogging.
   
  THRU-BOLT
  Type of housing closure using studs and nuts, such as in ASA type flanges.
   
  TORTUOSITY
  The ratio of the average effective flow path length to the minimum theoretical flow path length (thickness) of a filter medium.
   
  TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS
  Is the portion of the total solids in the sample that passes through the filter and is indicated by the increase in weight in the vessel after the filtrate has been dried at 180ºC.
   
  TUBESHEET
  A cartridge or minicyclone mounting plate.
   
  TURN - OVER
  The number of times the contents of the system pass through a filter per unit of time.
