Piping is a system of pipes used to convey fluids (liquids and gases) from one location to another in an efficient method. Piping also includes components such as fittings, valves and other devices to monitor or control the pressure, flow rate and temperature of the transmitted fluids.
Bath engineers have provided pipping designs for projects in industrial, commercial, federal, municipal and military environments.
These designs may be as simple as plumbing designs for a building or marina to transport of potable and sewage. Another design has been for the transport of municipal water across 140 miles in 54 inch pipelines, or storm water in holding reservoirs. There are also designs to transport the flow of steam to turn turbines or provide heating, or hot water to provide heating. Bath’s pipeline designs have also been for the transport of air, oil, gas and gases in industrial and port or pier settings.
Bath’s engineers are experienced in the requirements for piping design. Designs are based on the materials being transported through the piping. The designs consider pipe material composition, distance, temperature, and pressures of the liquids or gases being transported. Our engineers use various software to perform load calculations, pipe stress analysis, pump sizes and pressures required to move the material. There are also considerations for pipe cleaning if the client would use the pipeline for other materials based upon the production or shipping requirements. Piping components selected are also based on interfacing with automation and control systems.
