DistributionNOW's PVF Reference Guide is Now Available!

December 7, 2017 – This past August, DistributionNOW's PVF Reference mobile app was released for Apple and Android devices. It was designed to be an easy-to-use resource for oil and gas industry professionals who need access to hard-to-find industry standard terminology, specifications, practices, and reference tables related to pipe, valves, actuation, fittings, flanges, gaskets, and fasteners.

As a companion to our PVF Reference mobile app, we are proud to announce the release of the PVF Reference Guide flipbook! The Guide presents all the same data found in the mobile app, but in a more traditional book format.


  • PVF Info - types, identification, applications, specs, industry standards, and more
  • Terminology - searchable list of product and industry definitions
  • Formulas - commonly used conversions and PVF-specific measurements
  • Data Tables - pipe charts, pressure ratings, compatibility, and cross-references
  • Diagrams - manufacturing processes, step-by-step
