&e piping calculation spreadseets presented erein as been prepared for te general infor'ation and sould not be used or
relied upon for specific applications witout first securing co'petent tecnical advice2 4or sould it be used as a replace'ent for
current co'plete engineering codes, standards, and good practices2 3n fact, it is igly reco''ended tat current engineering
codes and standards be reviewed in detail prior to any decision1'a!ing2 Wile te piping calculation spreadseets erein were
co'piled wit great effort and are believed to be tecnically correct, #odes and Standards &raining 3nc2 "#AS&3% and its staff do
