Marine and Offshore Pumping and Piping System covers the history, application, installation, maintenance, and safety of different pumping and piping systems. The book covers topics such as pumping arrangements, especially in machinery spaces; water ballast, oil fuel, feed, and cooling water systems; and piping systems for oil and chemical tankers. Also covered are topics such as the arrangements in liquefied gas carriers and fuel gas and coal burning; the required arrangements and systems for specialized ships and its related regulations; the automation of control systems; piping designs, and offshore services. The text is recommended for marine engineers who would like to know more about the pumping and piping systems on ships and offshore services, as well as their arrangements.
