Process Flow Diagram Symbols - Equipment

Pumps and tanks come in a variety of designs and shapes.

Compressor is a mechanical device that takes in a medium and compresses it to a smaller volume.
A mechanical or electrical drive is typically connected to a pump that is used to compress the
medium.
Pump refers to a mechanical apparatus using suction or pressure to raise or move liquids, compress
gases, or force air into inflatable objects such as tires. The symbols for pumps may closely resemble
those for compressors.
Mixing is a gear that combine some materials or put them together to form one substance or mass.
Mixing vessel is a container that is used to blend several components together.

. Boiler is a closed vessel in which water or other fluid is heated.Heat exchanger is an equipment used to transfer heat energy between two process flows. Cooling towers transfer heat energy to the outside air through the principle of evaporation. Cooler is a device. container or room that cools air through the evaporation of water or keeps cool. Furnace means a tool for heating a continuous current of air by means of a fire contained within the apparatus and without mingling the fresh air with the products of combustion. Tank is used to store process fluids of various types. Heat exchangers transfer heat energy through conductive and convective heat transfer. under different process conditions.

Ball valve is a valve with a spherical disc. Check valve. is to prevent the line of medium back. also known as one-way valve. . the part of the valve which controls the flow through it. Globe valve refers to a mechanism used to control or stop the flow of liquid or gas through a pipe. Angle valve is oriented at a 90 deg angle of gate valve. Butterfly valve is installed between two flanges using a separate set of bolts for each flange.Valves Gate valve is a device used to control the flow of liquids and gases.Process Flow Diagram Symbols .

etc) All lines are fine in relation to process piping lines. .Process Flow Diagram Symbols .Piping Lines Process flow diagrams use special piping lines to represent how signals are transmitted between equipments. Double click process connection to edit description. (electrical. Major Straight line is sued to connect the equipment in the same horizontal or Vertical position. Major pipeline is for connection of the equipment in any position. data. pneumatic. These symbols are used to identify how the instruments in the process connect to each other. And what type of signal is being used. Process connection help to create the process flow between equipments.

Users can easily change types of the instrumentation symbols by clicking the quick action button while designing.Instruments Process Flow Diagram use symbols and circles to represent each instrument and how they are interconnected in the process.Process Flow Diagram Symbols . . drawing couldn't be easier!

flow indicator. odometer. odometer. indicator. temp transmitter. shared indicator. Thermomter is an instrument for measuring and indicating temperature. level indicator. Process Flow Diagram Symbols . usually liquid. flow transmitter. etc. pressure gauge. etc. pressure gauge. .Process Flow Diagram Symbols Pre-drawn process flow diagram symbols represent indicator.Equipment Process Flow Diagram Shapes Indicator is a thing that indicates the state or level of something. temp controller. thermometer. These symbols help create accurate diagrams and documentation. through a series of pipelines or tubing. Flow transmitter is a device used as a means of measuring the flow of a specific substance. flow controller. Edraw process flow diagram templates provide you plenty of instrument shapes. temp recorder. flow recorder. flowmeter. thermometer.

pressure. Pressure recorder. typically of gases or liquids. start and regulate flow. etc. temperature.Pressure transmitter is used to measure pressure. as its name implies. liquid level. Process Flow Diagram Symbols . is used to record the pressure. tapered point at the end of the valve stem that is lowered through the seat to restrict or block flow.Valves Gate valve is a valve with a sliding part that controls the extent of the aperture. Control valve is the valve used to control conditions such as flow. Globe valve is a linear motion valve and are primarily designed to stop. . Needle valve has a slender.

Piping and Connection Shapes Flange is a projecting flat rim. Process Flow Diagram Symbols . serving for strengthening or attachment or (on a wheel) for maintaining position on a rail. collar. fine detail will make spectacular. Relief valve (RV) is a type of valve used to control or limit the pressure in a system or vessel. or rib on an object. And their crisp. . Reducer is the component in a pipeline that reduces the pipe size from a larger to a smaller bore (inner diameter). easy-to-understand diagrams and presentations to your customers. or gas through a valve opening to reduce the built up pressure inside a tank or remove excess air or gas in a system.Angle valve is a fluid regulating device that is used in plumbing and industry. Bleeder valve works by releasing air. Need fresh looking process flow diagram symbols for your design? These process flow diagram symbols are a cinch to pop in.
