Engineering Gobbledegook

Read in recent specifications.....

"The screw holes of flanges shall be asynchronous and symmetrically opposed with regard to the equipment orthogonal shafts."

"Butt welds shall not have salience above the internal surface of the tank."

"During valve manipulation be careful that any valve accessory or paint be damage.
All manipulations have to be done carefully and low speed and be sure that any
accident or damage can be to anyone or to the valve."

"The lift is being fixed. During that time we regret that you will be unbearable."
