Pipes welding work and designs
There is a proper way of installing or even repairing pipe fittings and other plumbing supplies. This is true even in various applications, whether residential, commercial or industrial. Some installers even have special training. There are also special methods of handling, depending on the kind of setting. For example, the ways could be different if it is for hydraulics, heating ventilation, and air conditioning systems, as well as manufacturing and even refineries. If you are into this kind of business, there are few things that you need to look into first. Three of these are the following aspects.
Different Kinds of Pipes
Firstly, there are various kinds of gas pipe fittings available in the market today. There are at least five general types, which are made from steel, copper, aluminum, as well as glass and even plastic. The black iron pipe was once considered as the most popular option for water supply and even flammable gases. The copper pipes could either be a soft or rigid type. The former type has flare connections while the latter has the soldered, compression and crimped or pressed types of connections. Aluminum type is popular for being low-cost and being resistant to solvents and corrosion.
What are the occupational hazards?
Secondly, since there are dangerous and hazardous materials involved in the process of installing or repairing pipe fittings, people who are doing the job are exposed to various occupational hazards. Some of these materials include asbestos, ammonia, lead, flammable gases, steam, as well as resins and even solvents. However, there are already lots of significant efforts to reduce and eliminate exposure of workers to these hazardous materials nowadays. This is also true with liquefied petroleum gas or LPG gas fittings. Most countries also have regulations and laws pertaining to the use of those materials, specifically the usage of asbestos and even refrigerants.
What is their scope of work?
Thirdly and lastly, the scope of the work of fitters who will install or repair LPG fitting or other plumbing supplies varies as well. It depends on the coverage or design of the project that they are undertaking. There are some who are involved in blueprint reading too. As a matter of fact, this is very essential, most especially in big installation or repair projects. The other part of their job also includes detailing, computer-aided design (CAD) drawing coordinators, layout, pipe threading or grinding, as well as welding and even plasma cutting.

What is a structural inspection?
It is a visual inspection carried out by a structural engineer to determine whether the building or structure is suffering from any structural problems and if so what are the causes and remedial options. If the building or structure has a defect that requires further investigation, the structural engineer would advise on the nature of the exploratory work. For example, trial holes to reveal the existing foundation, in order to determine the most effective structural solution.
