    Based on this photo, is this installation acceptable for medical vacuum systems and would it pass verification?

    This looks like an acceptable transition from stainless steel to copper. 



    Certain editions did not allow branches to come from the bottom of the main.  This requirement has since been removed, but is still a good idea.

    Sorry, I needed to rotate the picture. But, my question is does NFPA 99 allow bolted connections ?   I understand that the service ball valves will always have a bolted connects for it to be three piece.
