A pipefitter is a tradesperson who installs, assembles, fabricates, maintains
and repairs mechanical piping systems. Pipefitters usually begin as helpers or apprentices.
Journeyman pipefitters deal with industrial/commercial/marine piping and heating/cooling
systems. Typical industrial process pipe is under high pressure, which requires metals such as
carbon steel, stainless steel, and many different alloy metals fused together through precise
cutting, threading, grooving (Victaulic), bending and welding. A plumber concentrates on lower
pressure piping systems for sewage and potable water (tap water), in the industrial,
Commercial, institutional, or residential atmosphere. Utility piping typically consists of copper,
PVC, CPVC, polyethylene, and galvanized pipe, which is typically glued, soldered, or threaded.
Other types of piping systems include steam, ventilation, hydraulics, chemicals, fuel, and oil
