Ask a question, make a comment, respond to a question or comment, let friends and colleagues know where you are, or try to notify someone you've lost touch with. With tens of thousands of viewers each month you can take advantage of this large and diverse community of designers, engineers and constructors. It's like having a huge office of colleagues that can assist you when you get into unfamiliar territory on a project ...and we've all been there. That resource is Piping News and it's available to you ... take advantage of it.
This web site is your personal design and engineering tool.
To all of you Piping and Mechanical Designers and Engineers, to all of you Construction engineers we're just a laptop and a phone jack away. Plug us in while on site or in the field to run your flow calculations, size pumps, size hangers and perform many other design activities. Please read on to see what's taking place with the Piping News Report interactive web site. This is not going to be just another static site where we provide you with news and jobs. We want you to be able to interact with this site.
True to the statement made when first creating this web site and the Newsletter we are about to make some changes. Changes that will make the subscription cost equitable for everyone, allowing us to provide you with more news, more timely news, more job postings and more design & engineering articles in addition to the interactive forms.
Besides posting available jobs and news articles pertaining to the industries (refining, pharmaceutical, chemical, petro-chemical, power, etc.), upcoming articles will discuss:
Mechanical checkout procedures
Pipe line schedule
(and many more)
Listen to the internal sounds of an operating steam trap
Steam tracing design
Pipe insulation selection
And so much more in the way of informing, educating and assisting anyone and everyone interested in the mechanical design and engineering of pipe and HVAC systems. How would you like be able to log on while on site or in the office and size pipe, size duct, size a pump, determine velocity of a gas or liquid, determine the pressure drop of liquid or compressible flow, size constant and variable load spring hangers, size condensate return lines carrying two phase flow and more simply by entering the necessary information and getting the results right then. You can by connecting to the Piping News web site.
We can serve as your main design/engineering resource
while in the field on a retrofit job, or on site during construction attempting to resolve
design questions in an effort to keep construction moving, or in the design office
attempting to size pipe or determine flange ratings. It will all be right here.
Piping News Report is not just about news articles regarding active projects around the world or available jobs around the world, it's also about learning how to do a better job which, in turn, creates more of a demand for your services which translates into higher pay and job security. We want this site to be a daily design and construction tool. We want you to use this as your resource for design, construction, news and jobs.
As this site undergoes its development we want it to ultimately function as a point of reference for those individuals who's career revolves around the various industrial and commercial Design and Engineering fields. Whether you're in Piping, Mechanical, Structural, Electrical/ Instrumentation, Civil, Purchasing, Scheduling or any other related activity, we hope you find this web site a very useful tool of the trade. We hope you enjoy it and support it with your input.
We look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to contact us for anything please do so at the following:
