Definition of the noun air lock
What does air lock mean as a name of something?
- a chamber that provides access to space where air is under pressure
Air lock: An air lock is a restriction of, or complete stoppage of liquid flow caused by gas trapped in a high point of a liquid-filled pipe system. The gas, being less dense than the liquid, rises to any high points. When pressure is applied, instead of the liquid flowing as it would if the system was full of liquid, the system behaves like a series of manometers.
