Legends

Whenever you start reading a piping drawing or document, you can see many
abbreviations on these drawings/documents. Aerogel
Many abbreviations are common and are regularly used in the drawings but few of the InsulationBlanket
abbreviation are new and unique for a particular drawing.

Sometimes it happens
pe that there are abbreviations mentioned on drawing/documents
but the legend explaining the actual meaning of the abbreviation is missing.

Someone may make mistake by presuming the abbreviation and start working. My
recommendation would be to request for the legend sheet and then start the work as
would eliminate error at a later stage. Because, clarity in understanding is important.

Above mentioned are the reviewing softwares to review models designed already
in PDS, PDMS etc.
Apart from internal reviews by lead and area engineers, there are 3 formal model
reviews at Stages 30%, 60% and 90% of design completion where client will
participate in the reviews.
Below checklists may help for formal reviews-

Hi,
Which section of piping isometric are you referring for SC. Generally SC
can be Sample Cooler or Sampling Connection on the isometric drawing.
