Industrial and domestic piping is increasingly made from various plastics and composites, and these materials withstand heavy use over long periods. They are, however, affected by environmental and other factors over time and can degrade, causing major problems within piping systems. Farshad's book deals with why plastic pipes and systems fail, and with how to investigate and diagnose such failures. Pipes may buckle, fracture, change in dimensions and colour, blister and delaminate, corrode through stress, be abraded and obstructed: all these cause problems and lead to loss of efficient operation of a system. The author's experience is backed up by a large data-base of results Wide target audience Only book covering the entire subject Unique approach based on long experience
Huge Treasury of Double Containment Piping Data Handbook of Double Containment Piping Systems, by Christopher G. Ziu, arms you with all the data you need for designing and planning virtually every type of double containment system--with complete confidence. Packed with the latest concepts, engineering issues, and rules of design and installation, it takes you step-bystep through construction of both under and aboveground systems--serving up plenty of real-world examples and highly detailed illustrations--so you can ensure optimal performance under even the harshest conditions. You'll have everything you need for: layout, thermal expansion, and structural considerations; fabrication, assembly, and erection; leak detection; inspection, examination, and testing; trenchless reconstruction and alternatives to double containement piping; associated storage tanks and pressure vessels; fluid dynamics and sizing criteria; design of primary metallic, nonmetallic, and secondary containment components; system selection; materials; heat transfer.
Offers coverage of design, engineering, chemical resistance, costs, standards, codes and specifications. The text provides a resistance guide that lists over 800 chemicals and nearly 400 trade names cross-referenced to formal chemical names, covering all known chemical resistance data for the most popular thermoplastic piping systems. The book covers applications, selection, installation and maintenance.
This work presents a step-by-step procedure for determining the most suitable piping material for any given situation. It describes all corrosion-resistant piping systems - including thermoset and thermoplastic, lined and metallic systems and miscellaneous systems such as glass, carbon and clay. A compatibility table for each piping system, compiling the corrosion resistance of over 175 common corrodents, is provided.
Rapid evolution is taking place in the water market world wide - driven by increased consumer demand allied to the rarefraction of clean water. The inherent characteristics of composites materials associated with current materials and production technology is allowing the increased use of previously high cost materials and processes at ever decreasing costs. The Handbook is designed to bring specifiers up to speed with these materials and the new areas of application associated with them, exploring the scope, performance, cost effectiveness and environmental and legislative consequences of their use.
