The Piping Guide for the Design and Drafting of Industrial Piping Systems
Market price: $64.95, you save $4.00
Talk about a pipe design bible. This book has been used to teach generations of pipe designer and draftsmen. It tells you how to think about pipe layout then takes you through it. It is an odd book in that it goes from the front and from the back to the front. From thew front you learn about The equipment, fittings, valve, their organization and layout and the drafting and design. From the back you get the standards and codes that you need for the design.
