As much as we've all heard about carbon footprints, few of us know about water footprints. In addition to the regular water we associate with food and beverages, there is something called "virtual water." That's the water it actually takes to manufacture or grow something to the point where we use it, eat it, wear it or do something else with it. Check out the blog to read more.
Plant Owners and Engineers are becoming much more knowledgeable regarding design concerns and expectations for nonmetallic piping systems. Performance and reliability continues to improve for these systems. It has begun to be recognized that engineering nonmetallic piping systems, is much more involved that just picking the Piping Code and inputting piping material properties in a pipe stress analysis program. Depending on the selected Code or standard, the analysis approach and requirements change.
Depending on the selected materials and method of construction, the design approach and modeling techniques may be adjusted, as well. More and more, Maverick is working with major A/E firms, where nonmetallics are being specified. Some A/E firms use our expertise to maximize system performance and reliability, therein minimizing liabilities. Others engage Maverick as a critical step in resource management, allowing them to focus other critical personnel in priority areas of business. Maverick has a vast wealth of expertise in the pipe stress analysis of nonmetallic piping systems. Our focus is on the success and reliability of nonmetallic systems for heavy industry. We will continue to be a resource and asset to achieve those goals.
