Piping Design, Part 3 – Design Elements

By W. M. Huitt, W. M. Huitt Co. |

    Piping design is the job of configuring the physical aspects of pipe and components in an effort to conform with piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs), fluid-service requirements, associated material specifications, equipment-data sheets, and current good manufacturing practices (GMP) while meeting owner expectations. All of this must be accomplished within a pre-determined, three-dimensional assigned space, while coordinating the activity with that of the architecture, structural steel, HVAC (heating, ventilation air conditioning), electrical, video, data-and-security conduit and trays, and operational requirements. Pulling together and coordinating these activities to achieve such a compilation of design requires a systematic methodology, planning, technical ability, interdisciplinary coordination, foresight, and above all, experience. This third part in a series on piping design* discusses a number of key elements, including how to prepare specifications and guidelines, and some insights on flanges, surface finish, design temperature and pressure, and charge accumulation. Although computer-aided design (CAD) has become an integral part of piping design, it will not be discussed in this article.   Specs…
