For Piping Corrosive Wastes--Glass, Metal Or Plastic? Laboratory Design Notes.
Sell, J. Clyde
Plant Engineering, Apr 64
Materials (piping and joints) for waste-piping systems are evaluated and a material or materials best qualified for above ground service in health research facilities are recommended. Evaluation is based on cost and performance because the potential value of any material depends on its ability to compete in both areas. In general, the following criteria are considered important to most health research facility applications--(1) corrosive resistance, (2) mechanical strength, (3) useful life, (4) cost, including material, installation, and maintenance, and (5) other considerations. Interpretation of this criteria depends somewhat on applications and individual circumstances; several examples are cited. (RH)
