siphon
{f} convey liquid through a siphon, transfer a liquid from one container to another using a long tube and the force of atmospheric pressure; take money fraudulently from an association or organized body and use it for something for which it was not designated (also syphon)
siphon
A device, consisting of a pipe or tube bent so as to form two branches or legs of unequal length, by which a liquid can be transferred to a lower level, as from one vessel to another, over an intermediate elevation, by the action of the pressure of the atmosphere in forcing the liquid up the shorter branch of the pipe immersed in it, while the continued excess of weight of the liquid in the longer branch (when once filled) causes a continuous flow
siphon
a bent pipe or tube with one end lower than the other, used to move liquid from one reservoir to another
siphon

siphon
If you siphon liquid from a container, you make it come out through a tube and down into a lower container by enabling the pressure of the air on it to push it out. She puts a piece of plastic tubing in her mouth and starts siphoning gas from a huge metal drum Siphon off means the same as siphon. Surgeons siphoned off fluid from his left lung
siphon
A device used to transfer fluids from one container to another, or the process of doing so In winemaking, plastic or rubber tubing is often used in the racking process to transfer the cleared mead into a clean container The siphoning process is often begun by putting one end of a water-filled tube into the fermentation vessel, just above the sediment, and putting the other end into a container set down lower to get the flow started, until the water in the tube has pulled the mead in Once the mead is flowing from the tube, the free end is placed in another container that is lower than the original contain- er, and air pressure and gravity then take care of the rest Siphoning is often called racking in winemaking circles
siphon
to use a siphon for moving a liquid
siphon
a tube running from the liquid in a vessel to a lower level outside the vessel so that atmospheric pressure forces the liquid through the tube move a liquid from one container into another by means of a siphon or a siphoning action; "siphon gas into the tank"
siphon
A tube leading into or out of certain organisms used for transferring water in and out of the body
siphon
The flow takes place only when the discharging extremity of the pipe ia lower than the higher liquid surface, and when no part of the pipe is higher above the surface than the same liquid will rise by atmospheric pressure; that is, about 33 feet for water, and 30 inches for mercury, near the sea level
siphon
If you siphon money or resources from something, you cause them to be used for a purpose for which they were not intended. He had siphoned thousands of pounds a week from the failing business Siphon off means the same as siphon. He had siphoned off a small fortune in aid money from the United Nations
siphon
{i} tube used to transfer fluids from one container to another by means of atmospheric pressure (also syphon)
siphon
The process of transferring liquid from one container to another using suction and gravity (It was a cheap way to gas up the Chevy before the locking gas cap was invented )
siphon
A tubular organ connected both with the esophagus and the intestine of certain sea urchins and annelids
siphon
The siphuncle of a cephalopod shell
siphon
A device used to transfer fluids from one container to another, or the process of doing so In winemaking, plastic or rubber tibing is often used in the racking process to transfer the cleared wine into a clean container The siphoning process is often begun by putting one end of the tube into the fermentation vessel, just above the sediment, and sucking gently on the other end to get the flow started Once the wine is flowing from the tube, the free end is placed in another container that is lower than the original container, and air pressure and gravity then take care of the rest Siphoning is often called racking in winemaking circles
siphon
A sproutlike prolongation in front of the mouth of many gephyreans
siphon
Conveyance structure which is designed to be deeper in the ground than a culvert and is used to permit the crossing of the channel by minimizing the hump effect that is created whenever a culvert is used instead of a siphon
