⇒ The large diameter of the recycle pan decreases the velocity and motion of the oil,
making it easier for gas vapors and bubbles to escape entrainment. ⇒ In many flames the entrainment of hot furnace gases is responsible for the jet increasing in temperature and thereby
igniting. ⇒ Entrainment is when a fluid picks up and drags another fluid or a solid.
