Many steam fitters can also do the installation of boilers, stokers, oil and gas burners, radiators, radiant heating systems, and air conditioning systems. Sheet-metal workers can also assemble and install heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems. Their skills are particularly necessary in assembling sheet-metal ducts and duct systems. Some special occupations, such as those performed by air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics or stationary engineers, are limited to certain functions in the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning fields.
Atmospheric pressure may be defined as the force exerted by the weight of the atmosphere in every point with which it is in contact (Figure 2-8), and is measured in inches of mercury or the corresponding pressure in pounds per square-inch (psi). 7 psi at sea level. 696 psi. “Inches of mercury” refers to the height to which the column of mercury in a barometer will remain suspended to balance the pressure caused by the weight of the atmosphere. Atmospheric pressure varies due to elevation by decreasing approximately 1⁄2 lb for every 1000 ft ascent above sea level.
