Generally the components of a mixture will be vaporized in the order of their boiling-points; consequently if the condensates or "fractions" corresponding to definite ranges of temperature be separately collected, it is obvious that a more or less partial separation of the components will be effected.
compressor condensates, the major cause of the emulsions being due to mechanical generation.
condensates of sodium atoms moving at different velocities relative to one another.
Oil containing compressor condensates, in particular, must be treated before being allowed to enter the drainage system.
such condensates (whose experimental observation has recently been reported) offer the prospect of observing quantum statistical phenomena in a macroscopic object.
