Recommendations for Liquefied Gas Carrier Manifolds

Year: 2011
Language: english
Author: Witherby
Format: PDF
Quality: Scanned pages
Pages count: 51
Description: Introduction
This document provides recommendations on the layout, strength and fittings for gas carrier manifolds.
These recommendations are for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.
For the purposes of this document, the term LPG carrier refers to liquefied gas cargoes carried between the temperature range of 0°C to -104°C.
These recommendations do not apply to existing ships, and there is no suggestion that existing ships should be altered.
It is recognised that some new gas carrier designs may not be able to conform to all of the recommendations in this document, however, this document is intended to serve as a starting point with a view to minimising differences as much as possible.

johnny_tsouk, Some recommendations:
1/ Name of your release should be the same as the name of the book, i.e. "Manifold Recommendations for Liquefied Gas Carrier" as per this name search is working.
2/ There should be at least three screenshots with readable size of pages from different parts of the book that users can check the quality of scanned pages. Screenshots should not contain first, last and contents pages and page used for poster.
Please arrange these recommendations in your release.
