On Wednesday, April 20, 2022 HPAC Magazine hosted a live on-line discussion with Lance MacNevin, Director of Engineering with the Building and Construction division of the Plastic Pipe Institute, as part of HPAC’s 30 Mechanical Minutes series—the free webinar series featuring virtual content for real world professionals.

In this episode the conversation focused on plastic piping in commercial applications – specifically pressure piping for plumbing and heating in commercial applications.. MacNevin shares interesting history of plastic piping in construction in Canada and walks us through a free online sizing calculator that helps with figuring out pressure loss/head loss and velocity to ensure the piping is being sized correctly.
