Materials personnel are usually the first to be assigned to a project and the last to close it. Their responsibilities of collecting tables, catalogs, specifications, and materials accounting system forms and supplies commence even before they depart for the jobsite, which could very well be in Mukluk, AI Mukalla, AI Khobar, Belo Horizonte, or just outside of Houston. To have all the required documentation on hand at the jobsite is a real challenge.

This handbook is designed to bridge the gap for piping data and materials storage procedures until a more formal specification has been issued by your project manager. It is intended to help train new materials personnel on the project by answering questions they may be afraid to ask. The markings on fittings and pipe are explained in a non-technical language. Pipe schedules are provided to show equal schedules in certain sizes, but different call-outs such as standard and schedule 40.
Tables describing the size and length of bolts for flanges and clamps are included, in addition to the size wrench required to fit the nut. An oval ring gasket cross-reference
chart is also included.

The book is quite useful to drafters, purchasing agents, pipefitters, students, and project managers.
The material in the book is believed to be technically correct; neither the author nor Gulf Publishing Company warrant its use. Always consult the applicable specification issued by the project manager at your project.
