Traditionally there has been little formal training in the area of piping systems and layout of piping systems. For this reason design decisions have to be made based on practical considerations without formulae or code reinforcement. Completing piping arrangements take up the majority of hours in the design of a process plant and the designer is required to apply acceptable layout procedures. For this reason, this course will familiarise engineers, designers and construction personnel with layout, design procedures and practices involved in the location of equipment and layout of and piping systems. This includes pipe sizing, pressure drop calculations, pump and equipment sizing and selection, preparation of equipment specifications and drawings, piping specifications, instrumentation and process control as well as piping component familiarisation including valves and fittings, piping hangers and supports.
This five day course is for engineering in piping projects and includes the engineering, design, detail and layout of process and utility equipment, piping and instrumentation. It will also introduce engineers, designers and construction personnel to the various procedures involved in the development and engineering of Piping and Instrumentation, Diagrams (P&IDs), Equipment Plot Plans, Piping Arrangements and Fabrication Drawings. This course will deliver the background required to design, engineer and complete piping engineering assignments and to complete a typical equipment layout and piping arrangement.
For engineers, designers and construction people in any area that piping is present, which may include a Refinery, Chemical, Power, Pulp and Paper, Utility etc.
At the end of this course participants will be able to:
Bob Wilson is an Engineering Consultant with TWD Technologies in Burlington, Ontario, Canada and a former Engineering Professor at Sheridan College. He is a member of the B31.1 Power Piping Section Sub Group on Design. Mr. Wilson has taught piping design and engineering courses for 30 years. He has been involved with the design, analysis, layout and support of piping systems since 1963, working with petrochemical, power, steel, mining & processing companies in North America and Europe. He is the author of a textbook in Piping Design and is the former chairman of ASME’s Ontario Section.
