Description

Optimization of Process Piping Classes for the Energy Industries featuring Metal Temperature Data Tables gives engineers a sustainable alternative to calculate piping characteristics such as fluid design temperature and wall thickness. Specifically benefiting refineries and related processing plants, the data reference includes tabulations on piping weight reduction in order to create optimal operations, including fewer stress critical lines and less fabrication time. Several case studies and examples are provided to show practical applications. By reducing the amount of steel needed to fabricate piping, CO2 emissions are reduced per project, along with operation costs.Rounding out with a glossary and future references, this book delivers a necessary tool for today’s piping engineers to build and operate efficient and more environmentally friendly piping equipment.

Key Features

  • Helps readers reduce material and labor costs by calculating more accurate piping weight and thickness
  • Covers how to calculate piping surface temperatures used specifically for processing piping, including over 350 data tables, diagrams and charts
  • Discusses how readers can save on emissions by using less steel than necessary

Readership
