Steam, high and low pressures. Stainless steel and Heavy Wall Black fittings. Heating and process. Condensate lines attacked by carbonic acid, Chemical Feed lines, automatic surface blowdown via automatic conductivity monitoring. HVAC/R all types of copper K, L, M , heavy wall, medium, thin wall. Hard drawn, and soft drawn, Rigid, Brass fittings and dielectric in galvanic reactions. Hoses, Flex connectors, etc in condenser water lines, Multi thousand water source heat pump loops, Variable Pumping, VFD applications to measure Pressure differential, Annubar measurement, flow, gpm measurement and placement of special fittings and test stations to measure pressure drops, and calibration wet stations designing the multiple valve stations around the transducers and to properly design and set up the Null valves and tap fittings for local calibrations ease etc. I have specified, selected valves in many 2, 3, and 4 way applications, calculated proper CV and submitted into many proposals for proper pressure drop to match coil pressure drops in mixing and diverting applications, also for steam valves in 2 and 3 way applications in research labs.

Every Day Piping design. Primarily schedule 10 sst. For the most part I just specify the Quantity & Type Long radius Ells & a few short radius Ells, Tees & Adapter Fittings. Sometimes we might modify a Fitting to fit Tubing when an Adapter for the specific situation is not available. I've used sizes from 1/4 npt or nps up to 18 & 24 Nps.
