The authors gratefully acknowledge the most kind and generous support of J. F. Richardson (JFR), in the production of the second edition, and also the timely assistance provided by R. P. Chhabra (Raj), J. Hearle (Jonathan), and J. R. Condor. The areas of this book dealing with fluid flow in pipes and hazardous pipe work would have been impoverished without their help and guidance.

The balloon escaped because it was lighter than air. It floated up, up, and away because the helium inside the balloon was less dense than air. The yellow balloon was lifted into the sky because of the density difference between the low molecular weight helium inside the balloon, and the higher molecular weight of the surrounding sea of air. So that’s what makes an air lift pump work; density difference. Density difference between the lighter air–water mixture in the riser tube and the more dense water in the fish tank.

1 inch thick. Mesh This is the number of wires in a filter screen.

It’s the flat end of a pipe that is used to bolt up to a flange on another piece of piping. Bolts, with nuts at each end, are used to force the flanges together. A typical flange might have eight bolt holes. Expansion loop Piping thermally expands as it gets hot.
