New Addition to the Wiley-ASME Press Book Series Published

Feb. 10, 2017


The latest title published under the co-branded Wiley-ASME Press Series in Mechanical Engineering imprint was recently published. The new book, Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment Design, is now available in a print edition and as a digital ebook.

The Wiley-ASME Press Series is a result of an agreement ASME signed with technical publisher John Wiley & Sons two years ago to jointly develop and publish a collection of mechanical engineering books. Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment Design is one of several titles in the series, which also includes Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibrations and Introduction to Dynamics and Control in Mechanical Engineering Systems.

Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment Design, by William (Bill) M. Huitt, is a companion guide to the ASME Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment (BPE) Standard that offers readers a look at the basis of many of the standard’s requirements and recommendations. Employing his extensive experience in the field of industrial piping, design, engineering, construction and management, Huitt explains the vital role that dimensions and tolerances, process instrumentation and material selection perform in components and instrumentation manufacturing.

This straightforward and user-friendly guide, which was designed to help engineers better comprehend the BPE Standard’s content, includes an overview of the standard’s early history, followed by a review of industry-related codes and standards and the general requirements of the BPE Standard. The 544-page book also covers metallic and nonmetallic construction materials; process components; fabrication, assembly and installation of piping systems; examination, inspection and testing; equipment and component quality, including the ASME BPE certification process; and system design.

Bioprocessing Piping and Equipment Design is available to ASME members for $104 – a savings of $26 off the list price. Print copies of the book can be purchased at

The title can also be purchased as an eBook through the ASME Digital Collection.
