Why There is a Need For Pipe Supporting?

Be The First To Comment
The Piping Profile in general can be considered as a complex and rigid piping network consisting of various piping components, which have different diameters and weights. At the same time the above network is also subjected to temperature change while switching from installed to operating condition (and visa versa) resulting into its thermal growth in various directions in proportion to the length of pipes. The structural integrity of the above network must therefore take into account the overall weight effect of the profile besides its thermal growth. 

A satisfactory design of the Piping System should therefore give a careful consideration to achieve the above requirement. This is generally accomplished by providing external attachments (known as pipe supports) at various locations of the piping profile.

[PPT] General Pipe Routing Criteria

Be The First To Comment

General Pipe Routing Criteria

There are some criteria that optimize piping cost and proper functioning of system.

Ø Piping from source to destination should be as short as possible with minimum change in direction.

Ø Piping should not hinder any normal passage way also should not encroach any equipment maintenance space.

[PPT] Basics of Pump Piping

Be The First To Comment
The Pump Should Be Located As Close As Possible To The Source Of Suction.

The Main Reason For This Is To Minimize Pressure Drop. This Keeps Line Sizes And Equipment Elevations To A Minimum Due To Support Availability.

[Excel File] A Guide of Refinery Process

Be The First To Comment
This excel file (A Guide of Refinery Process) is indeed a great resource for learning basics of the whole refining process from crude oil to processed product like Gasoline or Diesel. I am sharing this to all readers for educational purpose. Please do share the link of this article with you friends and colleagues, so that they may also benefit from it. Download it and then view it as it's an interlinked file and cannot be viewed properly online.

Pressure Relief Valve Piping Design

Block valves are usually provided upstream (and downstream if discharging into a closed system) of pressure relief valves where necessary to permit on stream isolation and maintenance of the PR devices without interrupting process unit operations.

Where block valves are used, the installation should conform to the requirements of Section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code when protecting an unfired pressure vessel. These valves are typically installed so that they are car sealed open (CSO). Mechanical interlocks or key systems are usually required for spared PR valve installations to help ensure continuous safety protection of the system.

Sequence of Distillation Column Piping Study

Be The First To Comment
The designer now starts thinking about the proper orientation of nozzles and provisions for access to the points of operation and maintenance.

Considerations of the pipeline leaving the tower area and the adjacent piping shall be visualised.

The first step is to orient the manholes preferably all in same directions. Normally, manholes shall be oriented towards dropout area within a 30° segment of column as this facilitates the lowering of tower internals to the main access way. The manhole segment of platform should not be occupied by any piperack.
