By-PRODUCTS PLANT Part - 11
I added some water piping to the front of the primary coolers. I'm not sure these pipes are discharge or intake lines, but they are prototypically correct according to the photo that I am working off. I suspect they might be the discharge lines with some sort of trap or level arrangement evident. The smaller pipes are 1/8" tubes and the larger, 5/32". I made the tees and flanges on the larger sized piping, but with the 1/8" tubes, I used cast flanges, tees, and elbows, from Bollinger Edgerly Scale Trains, or BEST. Originally I had planned on using some Walther's products - the piping detail kit for the refinery - however, the detail of the flanges wasn't very well done, and the tees were oversized. Unfortunately, I ran out of the BEST flanges so I was unable to complete the piping details. I will have to order some more.
