There's a varying degree of specifications out there - but I've never really seen it openly discussed or defended.
Some organizations (such as military, many healthcare clients) require schedule 40 for pipe 1 through 2 inches in diameter. Some engineers hardly compile specifications and place no requirements on the pipe thickness. Some projects only allow schedule 40 or even schedule 80.
If you're an engineer, what is your basis for recommending different pipe thicknesses for different clients? Is corrosion the only reason why the thicker pipe diameter is specified for your clients?
Would be really interested in understanding the reasoning (one way or another) for specifying different pipe thicknesses on suppression systems. Thanks in advance.
