It is a knowledge base for piping dedicated to bringing the best in current piping knowledge to piping professionals worldwide.
So ... What's on pipingdesigners.com?
A problem shared is a problem halved, and we intend to carry that notion further, through the use of forums where pipers of all levels can ask their piping design questions and find their answers.
piping training modules are provided to help young designers along, and also to refresh the memory of senior designers.
Our piping tool box is an ever-expanding library of information, spread sheets and cut sheets.
You will find piping standards, useful piping tips, blogs and various other topics.
