English term or phrase: HC Vapor lines
In the case of vapors, two approach may be followed, depending on the magnitude of the compressibility effect. For vapors at low pressure drop and low velocity (Pressure drop less or equal than 10 % of upstream pressure and velocity less or equal than 200 ft/sec). I would like to know the meaning of HC.

Explanation:
Tentatively, HC might stand for hydrocarbon (try "HC vapor" with Eurodicautom for some other, less likely possibilities).

Explanation:
'HC': In this case, seems like 'High Compressibility Vapor lines'; lines carrying vapors with high compressibility factor:
'Líneas transportadoras de Vapor de Alta Compresibilidad'.
