- Discussion of environmental and governmental regulatory issues and factors that affect the piping
industry, with emphasis on important codes, standards and related factors
Pre-insulated carbon steel piping
is also commonly used in direct-buried chilled water systems.
A test laboratory was established in Davis, CA where complete full-size piping
systems could be constructed, instrumented, and tested.
IPEX offers the world's most extensive range of thermosplastic piping
For the recovery of the spent scrubber effluent of the bleach plant, BE&K specified Corzan[R] chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) pipe from Noveon Inc., Cleveland, Ohio, rather than stainless steel, carbon steel, or fiberglass piping
Iron pipes will still deliver clean water, but the plumbing industry considers iron piping
to be like last year's computer, a complete dinosaur.
The collection of piping
and equipment in your air system can be intimidating, but armed with a knowledge of the fundamentals, you can better understand your own setup.
For a type of shorebird called the piping
plover, beaches packed with sunbathers, shell seekers, joggers and Frisbee players represent a lethal hazard.
If an appropriate shut-off valve is accessible, the entire piping
system will not have to be shut off.
Petersburg, FL, describes a recent pipe bursting project using fused PVC piping
in a residential area of his city.
This is occurring for a variety of reasons, including 1) having more hot water fixtures located further distances apart; 2) the more prevalent use of under-slab piping
, which is both generally longer than above-slab piping
(Hiller 2005) and represents a high-heat-transfer environment due to moisture presence under the slab; 3) the use of lower-flow fixtures, which exacerbate water waste during the delivery-phase of hot water flow; and 4) a lower level of care in designing HWD piping
systems for energy-efficient operation than in the past.
To date, researchers have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of making a magnetic PE pipe material that would make future piping
systems easy to locate, and just as simple, to install.
Vacuum level is a measurement of resistance to airflow, where the airflow is induced by the vacuum pump(s) and the resistance is produced by the various dewatering processes and system piping
. Changes in resistance to airflow are caused by various process variables, including sheet moisture, basis weight, refining, felt porosity, suction roll condition, machine geometry, and machine speed.
The pipe is immune to nearly all types of corrosion experienced in underground piping
systems whether the corrosion is through contact with chemical solutions or electrolytically induced.
Two years ago, it looked like dozens of vinyl extruders were poised to pounce on a new opportunity for CPVC in residential hot-water piping
that was created by the demise of polybutylene in this application.
