Balanced nozzle reinforcement

Balanced nozzle reinforcement

(OP)
Is there a proper definition of what 'balanced' nozzle reinforcement means? I wrote it into my spec, thinking it was understood , but it is not a term used in BPVC and my client seems to think it means a dollar plate. Client does not accept my interpretation.

RE: Balanced nozzle reinforcement

Never heard the term. Perhaps you should define it in your spec. Then readers will know.

What does "dollar plate" mean to you?

Regards,

Mike

The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

SnTMan,
I think I made a big big mistake saying "balanced reinforcement" when it is not really defined. Client now says he wants dollar plates because that is what I "meant". (14 nozzles). Hard to argue the point with them...

RE: Balanced nozzle reinforcement

Client tell you what "dollar plates" are?

RE: Balanced nozzle reinforcement

RonJeremy,
You should know what it means if you put it into your spec!!! Don't use terms that others are not familiar with then you would not end up in this situation. My understanding of balanced reinforcement would mean that around a nozzle you could not "lump" the majority of the required reinforcement on one side of the nozzle - it has to be equally spread around the nozzle.

RE: Balanced nozzle reinforcement

mk3223, thanks, but as you can see from your linked thread it can have several meanings. The OP needs to know what it means to his client, was my point.

Regards,

Mike
