The mediums used in these distribution systems, as defined by the Department of Defense (DoD), include:

a. High temperature hot water (HTHW) (251 deg. F to 450 deg. F)

b. Low temperature hot water (LTHW) (150 deg. F to 250 deg. F)

c. Low pressure steam systems (up to 15 psig)

d. High pressure steam systems (over 15 psig)

e. Condensate return systems (up to 200 deg. F)

f. Chilled water systems.

APPLICABILITY.
