• What is Piping Construction?

    Posted on September 28, 2017 by North Shore Mechanical Contractors in Life Science Project, News, Safety, School/Hospital Project.

    Piping Construction is the process in which you assemble pipes in a system such as plumbing. Piping itself is a system, in that it utilizes a system of pipes to convey a fluid. This fluid could be liquid or gas, but is typically seen in a home as allowing water to flow. A piping system is the most commonly understood aspect, as we often hear during New England winters, “Don’t let your pipes freeze!”

    Industrial Piping

    Industrial piping is in a completely different league than residential piping because it is extremely complex and there are a lot of different things that could potentially go wrong. We also can see gasses conveyed more often, especially in buildings that do a lot of work with science. Schools, specifically ones with laboratory rooms, also need these gas lines.

    Industrial piping can be made of all kinds of material, including but not limited to wood, fiberglass, glass, steel, aluminum, plastic, copper and concrete. There is also another element to these systems; the pipes have  valves and even sometimes have some other devices, which help to discover , as well as control different aspects of the fluids. The top three things that these valves help to control is the pressure, flow rate, and temperature, as those are the three most important things to consider.

    Piping Design

    When it comes to piping construction, there is also another process, called piping design. Piping design is extremely complex, as everything has to be perfect for it to work correctly. Back in the days before computers, engineers used to draw out the piping, and while they sometimes still do this in early stages, they typically use a computer software to help develop a plan.
