Bubble-Wrapped Projects

Bubble-Wrapped Projects

Just like today’s parents all-too-often micro-manage, bubble-wrap, and helicopter parent their children – today’s project leaders too often micro-manage, bubble-wrap, and helicopter parent their teams. We want children – and projects – to have successful outcomes, and...

Fundamentals of Spring Hanger Application

For power and process piping in industrial plants, spring hangers or supports are often required to meet the design criteria of those piping. Spring hangers are not very complicated assembles. However, it is still important for an engineer to understand why they need...

Difference In DIB and DBB Ball Valve

When we use API 6D to design ball valves, the most important part is to design the valve seat. Different valve seat will have valve perform different functions. In API 6D we have two different types of valve seats called as Single Piston Effect (SPE) and Double Piston...

Few words about piping classes (Part 1)

Few words about piping classes (Part 1)

In a nutshell, a piping class is a collection of pipe, fittings, flanges, valves and other auxiliary components and a set of rules required to design and construct a leak-free piping system. The purpose of the piping class is to standardize the components and...
