Got a question. I have seen pump vendors having a flanged (welded) plan 53 system and tubing running from the flange to and from the the seal. Is this common? Why would they do tubing rather than piping? If system is not to see the process media, why not NPT rather than flanged? I dont see the reasoning. Can anyone shed some light on this?
Thanks in advance.
