SW in technical Sep 18, 2006

I suppose is a text about piping and pipelines. Depending on the context may mean "sea water" piping/system or "soft water " piping/system.
Others meanings: shipper's weight, short weight, specific weight.This is for small lettres in abbreviation.
If are used capital letters in abbreviation it means : short wave, single weight, switch.
For medical on-line try to find some glossaries.

There's a pretty good chance that SW is an abbreviation for "software".
