From the Publisher

Since it was first published in 1930, Piping Handbook has provided authoritative information, guidance, and data to generations of engineers and other professionals interested in piping design. Now completely rewritten, reorganized, and reformatted, the new edition of this definitive sourcebook presents the most current and comprehensive coverage of pipe design practice, material applications, and industry standards. The sixth edition of Piping Handbook now features all recent changes to the codes, standards, specifications, and regulations governing various piping applications; detailed treatment of thermoplastics and fiberglass piping systems; expert coverage of toxic and hazardous waste systems piping; an all-new format that is logical, easy-to-use, and time-saving; many practical problems and solutions; and real-life examples of piping applications that illustrate sound engineering practice. The new, quick-access format of the Piping Handbook contains five parts. The first part deals with piping fundamentals, including the definitions of piping elements, piping materials, codes and standards, manufacturing, and the fabrication and installation of piping. In the second part, users will find complete information on such generic design considerations as design documents, design bases, piping layout, stress analysis, supports of piping systems, heat tracing, thermal insulation, and the flow of fluids. The third part of the Handbook addresses specific design, construction, operation, and maintenance requirements for piping systems that handle various fluids in modern industrial and commercial facilities. Thermoplastics and fiberglass piping systems are addressed in the fourth part, with up-to-the-minute information provided on materials, fabrication, installation, benefits, and limitations. Finally, the fifth part contains detailed appendixes with a wealth of technical data and conversion tables. From the basics of piping to the latest materials and applications.

From the Critics

A step-by-step manual instructing students in the basic skills required for industrial drafting and design including advice on the use of AutoCAD and PRO-PIPE, the most commonly used pipe drafting softwares. The guide walks students through the creation of piping symbols for fittings, flanges, valves, and mechanical equipment. Each step provides a structural foundation for the culminating development of a 3-D model, giving the student an opportunity to visualize an entire piping facility. The volume features over 100 illustrations and photographs, and helpful exercises and questions for review and practice. The six appendices detail dimensional data, lettering, math, architect's scale, and computer use. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Piping Guide

Annotation

Designed as a working aid, information to handle most jobs is found in the 'PIPING GUIDE’. The ‘Guide’ is used Worldwide by engineers, designers, contractors, maintenance personnel and others involved with designing and maintaining piping systems, as well as in training programs and courses by trade schools, colleges and industry. Each chapter deals with its subject, point-by-point. In Chapters 2 & 3 components of butt-welded piping, elements of pipe-supports and mechanisms for controlling flow through valves are pictured and their usage described. In Chapters 5 & 6, specially developed drawings incorporate the design points of the text. In addition to design, the text also covers the details, such as: how drawings are issued (the various stages); how revisions are indicated on drawings; where the ‘North’ arrow is placed; what to show on P&lDs; planning the width of a pipeway when sizes of lines are unknown; orientation of valves; where to position vents on steam lines; the minimum size of concrete foundation for a pump, etc. In Chapter 5, a section on dimensioning illustrates basic rules to follow for all piping drawings. In Chapter 6, a simple explanation determines the correct arrangement (sometimes unclear), for an eccentric reducer when used at the suction nozzle of a pump, i.e., whether it should be ‘top flat ‘or ‘bottom flat’ - nothing is left to question. Piping to pumps, for example, can be arranged using the same good practice as the professional, simply by following the arrangement of piping at pumps, (text Figure 6.17 and notes). In the presentation of Steam-Trap Piping (text Figures 43 & 44), also in Chapter 6, the necessary items may be selected, and the piping correctly arranged, for removing condensate from steam lines - just by following the ‘key’ notes. The detail of tabulated information is evident in Table D-3. An example of ease-of-use is Table D-8 which allows direct reading of centerline to end-of-pipe dimensions without calculation. Similar direct reading tables are given for threaded forged-steel fittings, and for flanges. Comparable tables with dimensions in millimeters are also provided in the Metric supplement. Examples mentioned are only a fraction of the practical information in this concise easy-to-follow, compact reference, with over 500 presentations, figures, tables, charts and photographs, an unusually comprehensive Index/Glossary, and separate index to the most frequently referred-to tables.
