Deutsch: Schmutz / Español: Suciedad
Dirt is unclean matter, especially when in contact with a person's clothes, skin, or possessions, making them dirty. Common types of dirt include:
soil: a mix of clay, sand, and humus which lies over terrestrial bedrock. When mixed with water, soil becomes mud.

In the industrial context, "dirt" typically refers to any unwanted or extraneous material that can contaminate or impede the operation of machinery, systems, or processes. Here are some examples of how the term "dirt" is used in industry:

  1. Industrial dust: Dust and other small particles can accumulate in manufacturing facilities, especially those that involve cutting, grinding, or other machining operations. This dust can contaminate products or cause problems for machinery if not properly controlled.

  2. Contaminants in fluids: Dirt can also refer to any foreign material that enters a fluid system, such as metal shavings or rust. These contaminants can cause damage to pumps, valves, and other components in the system.

  3. Buildup on surfaces: Dirt can also accumulate on surfaces, such as in heat exchangers or boilers, reducing their efficiency and requiring more frequent maintenance.

  4. Debris on construction sites: Dirt on construction sites can include rocks, soil, and other debris that can impede the operation of heavy machinery.

Similar things to "dirt" in the industrial context include any unwanted or extraneous material that can interfere with the proper operation of machinery, systems, or processes. These might include grease, oil, moisture, and other forms of contamination. In general, industrial processes require careful management of materials to ensure that they operate efficiently and safely.
