The Petroleum Equipment Institute Pneumatic and Hydraulic System Installation Committee publication entitled Recommended Practices for the Design and Installation and Servicing of Centralized Fluid-Distribution Systems at Vehicle Maintenance Facilities, PEI/RP700.

The purpose of the document is to provide a concise summary of the design considerations and general guidelines for the proper installation of safe, reliable, and functional centralized fluid-distribution systems for various types of vehicle-related fluids. The publication will be assembled from published and unpublished sources provided by equipment manufacturers and experienced installers. The intent is to provide recommended practices to facility designers and installers that promotes construction of systems that operate safely and reliably; trouble-free performance of fluid-distribution equipment; and ample flow rates at various flow volumes.     

The recommended practices applies to stationary, centralized fluid-distribution systems for vehicle related fluids such as lubrication oil, gear oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid, grease, antifreeze, and windshield washer fluid. The equipment covered includes supply containers, piping and tubing, pumps, compressors, hoses, reels, nozzles and other equipment typically used to construct these systems. The publication is not intended for mobile fluid-distribution systems for vehicular fluids, nor will they apply to distribution systems used in food service or food preparation operations.
