Cast Iron Pipe Research Association  
Handbook of Cast Iron Pipe for Water, Gas, Steam, Air, Chemicals and Abrasives
 Picture
Publisher: Cast Iron Pipe Research Association, 1927 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "Cast iron pipe needs no introduction to the Engineers of the Water Works and Gas Industries. Because of its dependable quality, resistance to corrosion, ease of installation and reasonable cost, it has become their standard conduit. Next to the air which we breathe, nothing is more essential to us than water, light and fuel. The excellent work of these engineers in design, operation, and the selection of materials, is well shown by these vital elements being the most dependable of the many Public Services that make possible our dense city life. But since the establishment of specifications on Cast Iron Pipe and Fittings, by the various engineering associations, numerous new fittings have been developed on which complete standards have not been written. Required data regarding weights, dimensions and capacities, which available is often scattered through several handbooks. Information regarding many of the problems arising in the field may be quite inaccessible to the engineer. With the hope that a new compilation of tables and chapters on these subjects may be of aid, not only to the water and gas Engineers, but to the many others to whom Cast Iron Pipe recommends itself, this book has been published." In addition, a 30-page booklet, "Corrections: Handbook of Cast Iron Pipe", has been laid in and is included with the original book. 336 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
