For the most current mechanical codes that address the design and installation of the most current mechanical systems, use the 2009 International Mechanical Code?. Designed to provide comprehensive regulations for mechanical systems and equipment, it includes coverage of HVAC, exhaust systems, chimneys and vents, ducts, appliances, boilers, water heaters, refrigerators, hydraulic piping, and solar systems. This valuable reference uses prescriptive- and performance- related provisions to establish minimum regulations for a variety of systems.
Flip through the 2009 I-Codes series and find frequently used sections fast! You'll be surprised how easy it is to find what you are looking for. These tabs were created by industry experts who carefully identified the most referenced sections in the code.
Fully updated for optimal learning, Mathematics for Plumbers and Pipe-fitters, 8E remains a trusted resource for essential math concepts in the plumbing and pipe-fitting trades. With an emphasis on real-world examples that will prepare readers to successfully transfer their knowledge to on-the-job situations, this book utilizes the most currently used fitting materials to demonstrate key concepts. Simplified, clear explanations and a straightforward approach, combined with new units on changes of state, pressure and heat, and mechanical advantage, make this an ideal tool for anyone entering the field.
The ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping consists of a number of individually published Sections, each an American National Standard, under the direction of ASME Committee B31, Code for Pressure Piping. Rules for each Section reflect the kinds of piping installations considered during its development, as follows: B31.1 Power Piping: piping typically found in electric power generating stations, in industrial and institutional plants, geothermal heating systems, and central and district heating and cooling systems B31.3 Process Piping: piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals B31.4 Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquids and Slurries: piping transporting products that are predominately liquid between plants and terminals and within terminals, pumping, regulating, and metering stations B31.5 Refrigeration Piping and Heat Transfer Components: piping for refrigerants and secondary coolants B31.8 Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems: piping transporting products that are predominately gas between sources and terminals, including compressor, regulating, and metering stations; gas gathering pipelines B31.9 Building Services Piping: piping typically found in industrial, institutional, commercial, and public buildings, and in multi-unit residences, which does not require the range of sizes, pressures, and temperatures covered in B31.1 B31.12 Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines: piping in gaseous and liquid hydrogen service and pipelines in gaseous hydrogen service This is the B31.3 Process Piping Code Section. Hereafter, in this Introduction and in the text of this Code Section B31.3, where the word Code is used without specific identification, it means this Code Section.

This Standard is intended to establish a common system to assist in identification of hazardous materials conveyed in piping systems and their hazards when released in the environment. This scheme concerns identification of contents of piping systems in industrial and power plants. It is also recommended for the identification of piping systems used in commercial and institutional installations, and in buildings used for public assembly. It does not apply to pipes buried in the ground nor to electrical conduits.
