Everything you need to plan, select, design, specify, and test entire piping systems
Here's a complete design guide and reference for all service and utility piping systems found in laboratory, R&D, chemical, commercial, industrial, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, and health care facilities. This all-in-one handbook covers techniques used for selecting appropriate piping, valves, pumps, tanks, and other equipment involved with piping systems both inside of buildings and on the site.
Systems for proper facility functioning, enhancing building aesthetics, and efficient production and manufacturing are discussed in depth. Using a total systems approach, this Handbook progresses from fundamentals of system and component operation to a design procedure that allows quick and accurate component and pipe sizing.
Detailed chapters explore heat loss, insulation, freeze protection, water treatment and purification, and filtration and separation. You'll also find all necessary system design criteria; specs and selection tips for piping, valves, and jointing methods; examples of system design procedures using actual field conditions; and listings of FDA, EPA, and OSHA requirements.
This new edition has been revised to include metric units throughout; updated codes and standards that reflect all changes since 1996; and new material on flow level measurement, drinking water systems, septic systems, and hot water circulating systems. The plumbing chapter has been updated to reflect changes in plumbing codes, along with additional material on pipe space requirements and fixture mounting heights.
Complete with formulas, charts, and tables that increase your efficiency on the job, this Handbook will prove invaluable at the workplace.About the Author:
