What are process & plant pipe drawings
Process and Plant drawings are required for a large range of industries, such as water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, pharma and oil, gas and petrochem.
Part of the challenge when designing the pipework and instrumentation for a plant is avoiding clashes between the pipework, building structure and electrical components whilst ensuring future maintainability and system integrity.
Defining the routes in the design stage is very cost effective. Further, a detailed design including pipe fabrication drawings allows off-site pre-fabrication of the pipes which is considerably cheaper then welding on site.
What Plant & Process drawings does Jensen Consulting offer?
At Jensen Consulting we use the routing module within Solidworks Premium as our plant and process CAD software package. Our CAD Technician have the ability to read and understand P&ID schematics and are fully versed in common practices used in commercial pipework.
We would then usually produce our 3D Model based on P&ID’s supplied to us. We will work closely with the Process Engineer, Project Managers, Structural Engineer and architects to agree pipe routes and maintenance areas. Once the principal routes have been agreed we will produce a general arrangement drawing for approval.
Based on the approval of the GA drawings we will produce pipe drawings to assist material orders and pre-fabrication.
Further, using our steel detailing package we are able to produce a fast and accurate 3D CAD Model of the building from the civil drawings to assist in the coordination. We are also able to produce a CAD Model and fabrication drawings for any skids used.
What is the cost for Process & Plant drawings?
Jensen Consulting are able to provide our clients with a fixed cost and timeframe for
most our projects. We usually provide our quotations based on the P&ID schematicss.
