Engineering 101

Assalamualaikum!

i have been working as an engineer ni for almost two years and i think i hardly ever talk about it.
sedih.
bukan apa, i blame the media.

YO producers/script writers/directors/and those yang kerja in filming industry!

Y U NO MAKE MOVIES OR SERIES PASAL ENGINEERS?!
*exception of Prison Break.

kalau ada pun, tak melekat kat people's minds to know what engineers do. coz we all know what doctors do, what teachers do, what happens in glee clubs and hair salons, but really, apa sangat yang orang tau pasal engineers?

sooooooooooooooooo,
meh saya ajar sikit pasal engineering ya. and this episode, i nak ajar pasal fittings!! yayyyy!! (?)

*ehem*
kalau buat satu project, tak kisah la rumah ke, building ke, toilet ke, train station ke, fittings mesti ada. fittings ni diumpamakan as penyambung. Fit-Tings. It Fits. eh macam potential nama kedai je. ahak!
function fittings ni, well, menyambungkan pipes or besi or whatever.

here are some examples of fittings:


google image, saya curi gambar tanpa permisi. thanks!

"wah, apa natang ni sume?" tanya orang yang curious. i bet kalau those yang tak curious dah stop baca by now =p
ini adalah pipe fittings!

here are two examples of fittings!

google image, i curi your picture dengan sengaja. thanks!

this is elbow 90degrees. bukan 98degrees ya.
kalau you notice, all the pipes yang bengkang bengkok memang ada elbow ni. wajib. kena. mandatory. 


google image, i took this one too. thanks!

this is nipple. stainless steel SS316. 1 inch, 150 lb. this one function dia menyambungkan two separated (and threaded) pipes.

and there are sooo much more!!
i dulu awal-awal kerja selalu gila pergi hardware store to stock up these fittings. so i almost kinda memorised all the fittings that are commonly used. like these two!

oh, by the way, now that we are aware of the existence of fittings, kalau boss you tengok kat purchase orders and ask

"whose nipple is this??? 1 and a half inch??"

jangan la fikir bukan bukan.
dan yang penting, jangan la gelak.

sekian.

adlin said...

engineering mmg bidang yang tough..sy amek mechanical which is 90% controlled by men so it makes me to have work harder since u know guys lbh cpt pick-up and stronger..but hey kami perempuan pon wat keje2 like welding, casting, grinding..so I think we're equally the same hehe :)

Ida Roslan said...

dapat ilmu pasal engineer =). Thank u kak marya.

M@G said...

nak tau kenapa takde movie pasal eng? pasal it's almost a routine job to the eyes of the non-engineers. Eng ni kalau tgk keje dok depan komputer belek drawing pastu buat spec, beli brg. Apa yg best ntah keje tu. huhu...

no offense. I'm an engineer too. Oil & Gas eng. P&ID, wiring diagram tu mmg makanan i. Tp tu la.. dok depan komputer je.

crackhead said...

halo dear, in my opinion, being an engineer or any other profession, you don't have to be 'kasar' for people to take you seriously. just be yourself and have a strong personality. tak payah nak jerit2 for your opinion to be heard. sincerity in doing your task is important. from there, insya allah you can deliver your job well, and people will look up at you. good luck:)
