Now I want to show you the built in pipe
data tables of the Pipe Trades Pro. There’s 7 material types built into
the calculator. Simply press the [Pipe Mat’l] key. You’ll see the first of the 7 – steel.
Continued presses will show you the rest of the materials – stainless steel, brass, aluminum, cast iron, plastic or pvc and copper. Once you’ve selected a material you can
determine the pipe type you want. You determine the pipe type by using a
secondary function. Use the [Conv] key and then [Pipe Size] for pipe types and that over in the left gives you the
different schedules. All the different schedules that are available for any of the
material types, in this case steel, are shown over there. This is schedule 80
we’re using. Once you have selected your pipe
material and pipe type you can enter a pipe size and see the
corresponding data. So let’s just start at the beginning there.
We’ve got a pipe material – steel. Select our pipe type
[Conv] [Pipe Size] schedule 80. It’s going to be 3 inch pipe. We enter [Inch] and then we hit [Pipe Size] and we get the data that is included in the
calculator for that particular type material and size. The outside diameter, the internal diameter, the thickness, the material is steel, the pipe weight in pounds per feet, the fill weight and the area of the inside of the pipe. So that’s a quick overview on the built in
pipe data tables of the Pipe Trades Pro. For more information you can download our
