This professional development course is designed for engineers and technicians who need practical skills and knowledge in process plant engineering and piping design.
Process plants, such as refineries and petrochemical plants, are complex facilities consisting of equipment, piping systems, instruments, electrical systems, electronics, computers, and control systems. The design, engineering, and construction of process plants involve a multidisciplinary team effort.
Plant layout and design of piping systems constitute a significant part of the design and engineering effort. The goal is to design safe and dependable processing facilities cost-effectively.
This course will provide you with practical knowledge and skills that you can immediately implement in your workplace. We will cover the fundamental principles and concepts used in process plant layout and piping design.
The course is composed of 12 modules, covering topics such as plant layout fundamentals and workflow procedures, terminology and symbols used in plant layout, plot plans, elevations and 3D models, principles of chemical process technology, piping and instrumentation diagrams, piping design and engineering principles, piping materials, specifications and piping codes, and the components of piping systems, including fittings, flanges and valves.
