The part of the breast that delivers milk to the nipple.
A tube or channel through which air (heated or air-conditioned) is conveyed or moved.
A hollow structure in the breast through which milk passes from the milk gland (lobule) to the nipple. See anatomy of the breast.
Duct is the term for a pipe installed under ground into which fibre optic cable is installed
A cylindrical or rectangular "tube" used to move air either from exhaust or intake, and for distributing warm air from the heating plant to rooms, or air from a conditioning device or as cold air returns. The installation is referred to as "duct work."
pipe or channel for passage of gas or liquid.
A tubular passage through which a fluid is conveyed. The front end of the duct is called the duct lip.
round, square, or rectangular tube used to enclose moving air.
a tube-like structure that carries secretions from one organ to another.
Round or rectangular conduit through which air is carried from a central air conditioning system to various locations in a building.
A rigid metal or flexible insulated tube, designed to deliver air to and from a furnace or other air-handling unit.
Tube or channel which carries the output of a gland.
A pipe, tube, channel or any other unit necessary for conveying gases, liquids or solid units from one point to another. The term is mostly identified with air-conditioning systems where the transfer of air is necessary. This is accomplished through sheet-metal ducts. The term is also applicable to under-floor duct systems for conveyance of telephone lines and other electrical conductors. Return to Top of Glossary
a pipe or tube made from various materials either rectangular, circular, oval, flexible, vapour sealed or and insulated used to convey air.
A central heating and air conditioning system uses many components to heat or cool air This warm or cool air is then transferred to different registers throughout the house via special flexible large-diameter pipes or ducts The system of ducts throughout your house is often referred to as ductwork or ducting
A pipe, tube or channel that conveys a substance (such as air throughout a building). ( 081)
An enclosure in which air is moved that is primarily constructed from sheet metal.
Tubular structures within the body with well-defined walls that usually permit passage of air or liquids.
An underGround or overhead tube for carrying electrical cables.
A vessel for conveying lymph or glandular secretions.
a tube for the passage of fluid, especially secretions of glands. A ductule is a small duct.
A pipe or closed conduit made of sheet metal, fiberglass board, or other suitable material used for conducting air to and from an air handling unit.
the channels through which hot and cold air is blown in a home's heating and cooling system.
(1) Galvanized sheets formed to allow a passage or conduit for air to flow, used as a part of the HVAC system. (2) A wire way in a concrete floor where electrical wires are run.
An often enclosed passage or channel for conveying a substance, especially a liquid or gas. A tube or pipe for enclosing electrical cables or wires.
Tube through which body fluids pass.
A tube or passage for venting indoor air to the outside.
A passage or tube with well-defined walls for the passage of air or liquids.
tube through which fluid passes
Any kind of pipe or channel that carries water, wiring or conditioned air through a house.
In medicine, a tube or vessel of the body through which fluids pass.
An interior metal pipe used to distribute heated air from the furnace or cool air from the air conditioning system to the house.
A passage or canal for fluids.
A passageway made of sheet metal or other suitable material, not necessarily leaktight, used for conveying air or other gas at low pressures.
A small channel in the breast through which milk passes from the lobes to the nipple.
a small pipe through which electrical, telecommunications, and other smaller underground utility lines run; also known as a â€œconduit
a hollow passage for gland secretions. In the breast, a passage through which milk passes from the lobule (which makes the milk) to the nipple.
A passageway or tube used for transport.
A tube or conduit utilized for conveying air. The air passages of self-contained systems are not to be construed as air ducts.
Thin sheet metal, shaped either round, square or rectangular, which is used to convey air at low pressure.
A channel that carries body fluids. Breast ducts transport milk from the breast's lobules out to the nipple.
A passage for air or gas flow.
A tube in the breast through which milk passes from the lobules to the nipple.
The round or rectangular tube(s), generally constructed of sheet metal, fiberglass board, or a flexible plastic-and-wire composite, located within a wall, floor, and ceiling that distributes heated or cooled air in buildings.
Ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and remove air. These needed airflows include, for example, supply air, return air, and exhaust air.The Fundamentals volume of the ASHRAE Handbook, ASHRAE, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA, 2005 Ducts also deliver, most commonly as part of the supply air, ventilation air. As such, air ducts are one method of ensuring acceptable indoor air quality as well as thermal comfort.
In anatomy and physiology, a duct is a circumscribed channel leading from an exocrine gland or organ.
