An object's location is always given relative to another reference object. For example, the location of a Heat Exchanger may be described as five blocks from the General Service Building. To be more specific, the Heat Exchanger is four blocks east and three blocks south of the General Service Building. With this illustration, a direction and a distance from the General Service Building has been established. Several things are assumed to be known, the place to begin (General Service Building), and understanding of east and south (reference directions), and the length of a block (unit of displacement). Without consensus on these things, communication of the location of a Process Plant becomes unclear.


Before beginning with making drawings for a new process plant or building, there must be determine where the new building in the area will take his place. A coordination system, which refers to an officially recognized point therefore is necessary. In the Netherlands, for example, are thousands of official reference points, distributed across the country ...search on the Internet on geographic coordinate conversion, triangulation stations, benchmarks, geography or topography. You'll find a lot of information about how reference points are measured and identified.

Defining a starting point of the site related to the North / South direction, is one of the first steps in setting up a coordination system. In principle, with a simple reliable compass the direction of the magnetic north can to be determined. In the image below the true north is at 18°. As a draftsman would work with the true north coordinates, he will immediately find out that each line from west to east and from north to south at an angle of 18° must be drawn. To avoid this, a Plant North will be determined. In the example below, the true north, 18° is reversed, draftsmen and construction contractors will be grateful for it. General there will be tried, to approach the true north-south coordinates as close as possible. A rule is, that the angle between true north and Plant North can not exceed 45°. At 50°, for example, the Plant North would be on the right side, so on the Eastern side of the image.

1 = Official reference point 2 = South West angle of new plant X = East West distance from new plant to reference point Y = North South distance from new plant to reference point

Before starting with any building, the site is leveled (graded), what means that the ground is made as flat as practically possible. After leveling we talking about "finished grade", where the highest graded point is termed "high point of finished grade". This highest point of finished grade refers to an official reference point on which all vertical measurements are related. In the Netherlands, for example, many vertical measurement are in relation to the "Normaal Amsterdams Peil" (NAP). If the field compared to the NAP is 1 meter higher, usually the reference point will not become a zero start of 1000 mm, but in this case a zero start at zero(0). On a isometric view of a pipe line elevations are indicated by EL.109665 or EL.99450 etc.. What is meant by this vertical dimensions ?   The first EL.109665 you can read as: centerline of pipe is 9665 mm above zero point The second EL.99450 you can read as: centerline of pipe is 550 mm below zero point

Well, the vertical zero point in this case is 100 meters (100000 mm), and this has the advantage that no negative (minus) values on drawings need to be applied.

The image here on the left shows the official elevation symbol.

Both help the development of support facilities and are used to determine the most cost-effective construction sequence and methods. THIS DRAWING. THIS DRAWING. Plot plans and equipment arrangements are dynamic documents and evolve further during the construction phase and the lifetime of a process plant. to obtain government permits. Piping Coordination Systems . SUMMARY Plot plans and equipment arrangements are resources to help determine relative and specific positioning of equipment on a process plant. as an example. and sometimes a few details around a specific device. and are essential for obtaining permits and determining environmental and personnel safety. that on the drawings must be shown..Both equipment arrangements shows the equipment in a particular area. They are also used for operational needs.

There are two types of views in hand-drawn piping drawings:   Orthographic - Plans and Elevations Pictorial - Isometric Views

Orthographic drawings are views (front, side, top etc.) of an piping system, and in Piping they are called "Piping Arrangements". An orthographic view shows only one side, and therefore multiple drawings (views) are necessary to show a complete Piping Arrangement. In complex systems, where orthographic views do not illustrate the details of the design, pictorial view in isometric presentation is made for clarity.

Process equipment and piping have priority on the Piping Arrangement. The major primary beams and secondary beams are also shown, even as Utility stations so that the most

efficient route for utilities can be determined. Order of importance of pipe lines in a Piping Arrangement:       Alloy steel and other special materials Large bore piping High temperature/high pressure piping Lined piping Carbon Steel Process Piping Utility piping

Further (if possible) all equipment, instrument connections, with the tag numbers will be shown on a Piping Arrangement. Important details are often in a larger scale in the same drawing shown. Even as a Plot Plan, a whole process plant usually can not be given on a readable drawing. Therefore the Piping Arrangement show parts of a process plant.

Pipelines on a Piping Arrangement are shown by single lines and double lines. In single line representation only the center line of the pipeline is drawn using a solid line. In double line representation the actual size to scale is drawn with center line marked in chain-dotted lines. Single lines representation     Flanges are shown as thick lines drawn to the scaled outsite diameter of the flange. For flanged joints a small gap between dimension lines will be shown to indicate a gasket. Valves are shown with identification number and a handwheel is drawn with stem fully extended. If a valve is lever operated, then the movement of handle position is given. Dimensions for flanged valves are given to the flange faces, while non flanged valves are dimensioned to the center lines of their stems.

On THIS DRAWING, as an example, a imaginary "single line" Piping Arrangement will be shown. The drawing shows 2 pumps, 4 valves (all Handwheel operated and flanged), a pipe line and a column. The line number CD - PL - 101 - 12 - C300 - T2 - I2 tells something about the pipe line. CD PL 101 12 C300 T2 I2 Indicator for plant or system, where the pipeline is located. Indicator for a service designation. Indicator for the serial number of the pipe line. Indicator NPS, in this case the main pipeline is NPS 12. Indicator for Pipe Line Class or "Pipe Spec". C tells that the material is Carbon Steel, and 300 indicates the Pressure Class. Indicator for Tracing type. Indicator for Insulation type.

Above description of the line number is only an example. For line numbers are no standard definitions, and therefore a customer specification can be different from what is here defined. The indication 12-314 (Typ) on the valve told that the valve is 12 inches and 314 indicates the type of valve. The same applies also to the valve near the pump, where DR indicates a Drain valve. Typ stands for Typical and means that there is another ore more valves in that drawing with the same specification. The advantage of this indicator is, that items with the same specification only once need to be defined. Furthermore, the red arrow indicates the flow direction, which perhaps is unnecessary, because the pipe line is connected to the Suction side of the pump.   Dis. = Discharge, pressure side of a pump Suc. = Suction, suction side of a pump

An important item is designation TF (Top Flat) which is shown to the eccentric reducer at the pump. That means that the flat side of the reducer is on the top of de pipe line. If it was vice versa BF Bottom flat, also the elevation to the suction side of the pump must be given. Example for the pump suction side: A eccentric reducer 12 to 8 inch has a center-line difference from 52.4 millimeters. (12" = O.D. 323.9 mm / 8" = O.D. 219.1 mm / Length = 203 mm / Center-line difference =

The two valves are needed to drain the pipeline. which illustrate a directional change.88 mm. but they are all very expensive. The pipeline starts with elevation EL. and generally has this way of drawing many advantages. 100600 at the pump suction site and ends at elevation EL.6 mm x 323. In this case it means. equipment and piping arrangements in a 3D view. By applying eccentric reducers (Top Flat) in the lowest part of the pipeline. The three partly open blue circles in the drawing. For single line representation there are a lot of symbols. that the vertical centerline from nozzle C1 is 15. THIS IMAGE shows a 12 x 8 inch Top Flat and Bottom Flat eccentric reducer. SYMBOLS ON A PIPING ARRAGEMENT DRAWING On the drawing can be seen that the pipe line(s) from the pumps run up to the column. indicate three Elbows which are bending down. 104966 is shown. Another important item is the elevation (given in red) of nozzle C1 from the column.9 mm) has a length of 330 mm and a centerline difference from 15. that the flange that connect to nozzle C1 also must be have a Pressure Class of 600. The two blue half-moons around the pipelines/valves indicate that the valves are at the bottom of the pipeline are located. 104950 at nozzle "C1" from the column. because the pipe line ends with an eccentric reducer Bottom Flat (BF). Better 3D software has made this possible.52. If the reducer bottom flat.4 mm). In this case it means. The elevation EL. There are many programs that can be made 3D views. 100548 must be shown. Note: The connection to the column is 600 Lbs. But without the elevations. A eccentric reducer 14 x 12 (355. the two valves make it possible to fully empty the system.

width and depth are shown in a single view. Vertical lengths of pipe are calculated using elevations. while horizontal lengths are caculated using north-south and east-west coordinates. piping isometrics are drawn on preprinted paper. is oriented on the grid relative to the north arrow found on plan drawings. piping isometrics allow the pipe to be drawn in a manner by which the length. Isometrics are usually drawn from information found on a plan and elevation views. Piping isometrics are generally produced from orthographic drawings and are important pieces of information to engineers. Because iso's are not drawn to scale. Usually. valves and flanges are modified to adapt to the isometric grid. The symbols that represent fittings. with lines of equilateral triangles form of 60°. . In very complex or large piping systems. IMAGE of a isometric grid The Iso. piping isometrics are essential to the design and manufacturing phases of a project.PIPING ISOMETRIC Unlike orthographics. as isometric are commonly referred. dimensions are required to specify exact lengths of piping runs. Pipe lengths are determined through calculations using coordinates and elevations.

Piping isometrics are often used by designers prior to a stress analysis and are also used by draftsmen to produce shop fabrication spool drawings.    The A size is measured from the front to the center line of the elbow / pipe. measured from the front to the center line of the elbow / pipe.

The simplicity with which a pipe isometric can be drawn is one reason to made iso's. is the number of drawings that for orthographic views should be made. the black dots are the butt welds and A. In a orthographic view it is not a problem if the pipe runs in one plane. orthographic views really not an option.

A second reason to made isometrics.The image on the left shows a isometric view of the same pipe as above. The red lines show the pipe. The auxiliary lines in the shape of a cube. For example: for a complex pipeline system. then down and then to the west. Another reason why isos are preferred. ISOMETRIC VIEWS IN MORE THAN ONE PLANE Below are some examples of isometric drawings. this drawing is very simple and quick to implement. if a pipe should be drawn in several planes (north to south.

PIPE SPECIFICATIONS AND PIPING LINE CLASSES The purpose of a pipe specification is to provide standards for pipe. the doc tells you the pressure rating of the flanges. processes and practices are described. 304 & 304L. 316L. and you want to order new material. which gasket must be placed between the flanges and which bolts must be used. Reference Table 1A in ASME B16. methods. Pipe spec's are technical standards and formal documents. suitable in conveying gas. the therm "pipe spec" is the common name. A PLC document tells you exactly which materials for a pipe system must to be used. where uniform engineering or technical criteria.. water. Common ASTM Materials of Construction: Carbon Steel . Usually this also applies to the butt weld fittings. etc. In the doc are also links to other standards. hundreds of pipe spec's are used. 316. There are spec's for the various piping materials (Carbon Steel. which tells you how a branch is to be made. A pipe specification includes many different documents. welding. flanges. etc. such as testing.5 for a list of other acceptable plate material specifications for each different material group.A515 Gr. You will also find a so-called Branch Table. In petro and chemical industries. For example: a line must be partially replaced. Furthermore.48 was used as the basis for calculating the blind thicknesses listed in this table.A240 Gr. A516 Gr. valves. 65 & 60. oil and other liquids and products. 70. painting and so on. 70.
