LIQUID PROCESS PIPING
|Publication Date:||16 September 2002|
This manual includes criteria for the design of component parts and assemblies of liquid process piping systems. Compliance with these criteria requires only that fundamental design principles be followed. Materials and practices not prohibited by this manual or its basic references should also be considered. Where special conditions and problems are not specifically addressed in this manual, acceptable industry standards should be followed. Modifications or additions to existing systems solely for the purpose of meeting criteria in this manual are not authorized.
Purpose. This United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineer Manual (EM) 1110-1-4008 provides information for the design of liquid process piping systems.
Applicability. Liquid process piping systems include all pipe and appurtenances which are used to convey liquids to, from and between pumping, storage and treatment units and which are not integral to any unit (i.e., piping that is furnished as a part of the unit). Plumbing is covered by TM 5-810-5, potable water piping is covered by TI 814-03, sewage piping is covered by TI 814-10, storm drainage, and fuel and lubricant supply piping are excluded.
