Deutsch: Dampf / Español: Vapor  / Português: Vapor / Français: Vapeur / Italiano: Vapore

A vapor (U.S spelling) or vapour (British spelling) is a substance in the gas phase at a temperature lower than its critical point.This means that the vapor can be condensed to a liquid or to a solid by increasing its pressure without reducing the temperature.

In the industrial and industry context, "vapor" refers to a substance in a gaseous state, especially when produced from a liquid or a solid through heating or evaporation. Some examples of "vapor" in the industrial context are:

  1. Vapor pressure: The pressure exerted by a vapor in equilibrium with its solid or liquid form.

  2. Vapor deposition: A process used in the manufacturing of electronic devices, such as computer chips, where a thin film of material is deposited onto a substrate in a gaseous form.

  3. Vapor compression refrigeration: A type of air conditioning system that uses a compressor to circulate a refrigerant in a vapor state.

  4. Vapor recovery: The process of capturing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are emitted into the air during industrial processes, such as gasoline dispensing or storage tank ventilation.

  5. Vapor barrier: A material used in construction to prevent moisture vapor from penetrating into a building's insulation or walls.

  6. Vapor phase cleaning: An industrial cleaning process that uses solvents in a vapor form to remove contaminants from surfaces.

These are some examples of the use of "vapor" in the industrial and industry context.
