I DON´T KNOW THE EXACTLY CODE OR STANDAR , I ONLY NEED TO KNOW FOR EXAMPLE WHEN YOU WILL BUILT A FIRE FIGHTING NETWORK AND YOU CONNECT TWO PIPES FOR SOMETHING, IT´S NECESARY TO PUT AN ACCESORY OR ONLY WELD THE TWO PIPES. THANKS FOR YOUR ANSWERS AND GOD BLESS YOU.

RE: fire fighting network

Your terminology is where we are having a problem. Are you talking underground piping or overhead piping? If underground, you are typically going to use Mechanical Joint fittings to join pipe and nothing will be welded that I have ever seen.

If you are talking overhead, the most common joining methods are grooved connections and threaded connections. If you need an outlet off the pipe, you can do with either a welded outlet or a mechanical outlet - commonly referred to as a mechanical tee. I've rarely seen pipes welded together. The times I have seen it has been in industrial settings.
