For this reason a crystal detector is sometimes called a rectifier, which it really is.
This rectifier will do the work of two of the ten battery Tungars.
The disacidification, before entering the rectifier, is effected by the metallic zinc.
Filtration still remains the best and simplest adjunct to the rectifier.
Figure 63 shows the complete rectifier, and Figure 64 shows the rectifier with the side door open to show the internal parts.
The manufacture of liqueurs constitutes the trade of the compounder, rectifier, or liquoriste.
The English rectifier endeavours to imitate this by the addition of a little sugar.
The wash is pumped from the wash charger into the worm-tub, which passes from top to bottom of the rectifier.
The arrangement can also be used as a rectifier, for a current will only pass through it when the mercury pool is the cathode.
The vapour ascends to the reservoir (E), and passes into the rectifier (C) by the tube (F).
An electrical device that converts alternating current to direct current. Rectifiers are most often made of a combination of diodes, which allow current to pass in one direction only. Compare converter, transformer.
