Piping Databook by Mohinder L. Nayyar


Piping Databook by Mohinder L. Nayyar

This book is your quick key to time- and $-saving pipe and fitting data. Throw out that pile of catalogs, journals, manuals, and battered textbooks. Get ready for a clean desk and tons less aggravation because the answers you used to dig for are right here. Whether it's the thermal conductivity of insulation materials or a conversion factor for viscosity, sizes and types of metallic or nonmetallic pipe or fitting dimensions, manufacturers' names or that elusive bit of terminology, the Piping Databook will spare you hours of frustrating fact-hunting.It's packed with material that mechanical, chemical, process, and civil engineers, architects, facility managers, installers and operators, HVAC personnel, and other professionals use in designing, planning, specifying, ordering, and problem-solving every day. Look inside to see how much easier it can be to: specify pipe and components with cost-cutting comparisons of design criteria; design systems for new uses with easy-to-find equations, tabular product data, photos, U.S. and international codes and standards; select and specify domestic or international materials for piping elements to save time and cost; do quick conversions with metric and other fast-lookup tables and charts; use tables presented with both customary and metric units; find all major manufacturers, suppliers, fabricators, installers, and testing companies at a glance for the part or system you need; and, see illustrations of pipes, fittings, parts, and piping speciality items before you order. Look inside to see how much easier it can be to: select and specify insulation material and the insulation thickness without making time-consuming calculations; find types of pipe supports and hangers; select support spans for metallic and nonmetallic piping systems; discover innovations in products, applications, and procedures; find abbreviations, acronyms, terminology, professional organizations, computer programs, and so much more. The name Nayyar practically equals piping. And this new resource from the Editor-in-Chief and an author of the field's best-selling, Piping Handbook proves it. Mohinder Nayyar's Piping Databook can save you hundreds of work hours and your company thousands of dollars. It's the one guide that puts all the practical answers close at hand.
