Spiral Bound

 IPT's Pipe Trades Training Manual is a user friendly, spiral bound classroom size of 8 1/2" x 5 3/4", with 500 pages, 12 sections, 281 illustrations and 117 tables. The Manual version has identical contents to the Handbook, but varies in that it has comprehensive questions at the end of each section and comes with a separate answer book. This format is excellent for classroom training or self study. This book sets the standard for piping handbooks. It contains all the necessary previously combined in other reference books, plus much more. It includes information on: pipe and tube data; valves; fittings, flanges and gaskets; offsets and calculations; pipe layout (simplified and detailed); piping prints; oxy-acetylene set-up and pipe welding; pipe rigging. The book is excellent for on-the-job reference, and also contains more than enough data for a complete training program.
