MILLIBAR (2.55) bounced back to form with a comfortable 2l win over Button Moon in a handicap over this track and trip on her penultimate start.
The new post-curing method, at the heart of which is a special vacuum oven was developed in cooperation with Eberl Trocknungsanlagen, a drying systems manufacturer in Bodenkirchen, Bavaria, runs at temperatures between 150[degrees] and 200[degrees]C, but, unlike traditional systems, does so at an operating pressure of only 100 millibar, significantly reducing the flow of air required to ventilate the oven chamber.
However, the Pacific Sailing School entry did not as we were running an hourly barometric pressure record on a deck log and the air pressure did not move--not even half a millibar. Based solely on that, the students rightly concluded that the front was not approaching as forecast, and they continued.
Because it will most likely exhaust into single-digit millibar backing pressures, the nEXT is capable of dealing with much higher backing pressures.
This disturbing force is negligible at normal pressure, but when the pressure within the vacuum chamber is reduced beyond the millibar (for instance to avoid other disturbances due to air convection or to minimize the air friction on the oscillating pendulum) the meatus optical thickness further reduces, so as to attain the above condition about 1 mean free path.
The barometric pressure at this altitude was measured as 805 millibar, well below the sea-level average of 1013 millibar.

The engine is designed to operate on low pressure gas, from 35 to 350 millibar, and can handle a variety of gas with methane numbers down to 70, without derating, Cat said.
One of the reasons is the increased boost pressure offered by the fixed geometry turbo and V-TES combination over the standard model at that engine speed, with the production vehicle producing just 1,050 millibar of boost pressure at 0.5 seconds, compared with the 1,400 millibar offered by the V-TES equipped vehicle.
