This handbook is, to a large extent, the working notebook of the author. It is based on material collected and used by him over a period of thirty-five years of practical experience as a pipefitter. The notes explain and illustrate the basic problems of pipebending and the fabrication of welded fittings together with
the principles applied in solving those problems in the shortest and best way.
The handbook provides immediate answers, without the need for lengthy calculations, to all kinds of problems found in power and industrial pipebending
and the fabrication of welded fittings. It contains sections on soldering and brazing, types K, L and M copper tube, DWV copper drainage tube, plastic pipe,
screwed offset connections, rolling offsets, dimensions of Schedule 40, 80 and 120 steel and wrought iron pipe and other. Thus steamfitters, pipe welders, plumbers, hydraulic fitters, layout men and apprentices will find acceptable solutions to pipe bending and fabrication problems on jobs where quick answers are needed the most.
The author is indebted to Nicholas Martianoff, managing editor, Clifford Strock, formerly editor and William B. Foxhall, formerly associate editor, of Air Conditioning, Heating and Ventilating for arrangement and for data they have contributed, as well as for their deep interest in the production of this handbook.
FORREST R. LINDSEY
Compact and pocket-sized, this handy reference contains thousands of facts and figures relevant to pipefitters, steamfitters-anyone concerned with layout and installation of pipe.
Provides answers to all sorts of problems indigenous to power and industrial pipebending, and the fabrication of welding fittings in both shop and field.
Logically categorizes all material according to job description, supporting each working table with a clear example of how to use it.
Includes a special reference section that gives instant data on the 24 most useful on-the-job subjects, such as spark tests for metals, sheet metal weights, valve types, weights and measures, and many more.
Discusses all types of bends; elbows, tees, and crosses; plastic pipe; soldering and brazing; travel and run; fitting dimensions; threading pipe; relative physical properties; and more.
