Compact and pocket-sized, the Pipefitters Handbook is a timeless classic that contains thousands of facts and figures relevant to pipefitters, steamfitters, plumbers, hydraulic fitters, layout people and apprentices—anyone concerned with layout and installation of pipe. It 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. With sections on soldering and brazing, types K, L, 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, it’s the perfect resource for having on the job.
This unparalleled package includes both this essential handbook and the Pipe Trades Pro™ calculator. With these superb resources in hand, users will spend less time calculating and looking at charts, and more time cutting, welding, and placing pipe.
Features of the Pipefitters Handbook, 3rd Edition
