Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams commonly referred to as P&ID’s are encountred nowadays throughout all process industries such as Oil & Gas, chemical, pharmaceutical or food industries.
These engineering drawings are used worldwide in design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of industrial plants.
They provide clear information on processes, equipment, control systems and how the plant should handle emergency situations.
As a potential actor in these industries, it is therefore vital that you have a thorough understanding of P&ID’s components and construction.
Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams don’t have to be a complicated ! It isn’t rocket science ! This course will make you a P&ID expert and you will know how to read, interpret and successfully understand :
- all of those many lines
- process control schemes
- and safety instrumented functions you see in your plant drawings
The knowledge gained in this course will help you to understand ALL P&ID’s so that you can draw the correct information from them.
This will set you apart from your peers, whether you are an operator, engineer, or manager and will give you an edge over your competitors when seeking employment at one of these industrial facilities.
Moreover since Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams are used in the planning and risk assessment of tasks to identify hazards, process flows and isolation points, then by ensuring that these drawings are properly drawn and understood, you contribute to the safety of your facility, your fellow workers and yourself.
This training course starts by initiating you to basic blueprint reading (which is also used in electrical, hydraulic and mechanical fields of expertise), then moves on to familiarize you with simple to complex process flow features, such as :
- instrument loops
- advanced process control systems
- safety instrumented functions
- and alarm systems
Symbols are also discussed thoroughly with all the P&ID's standards, conventions and designation codes that apply to them according to the ISA symbology. These include :
- valves (gate, globe, ball, butterfly...)
- actuators (pneumatic, hydraulic, solenoid, single acting spring return, double acting...)
- process equipment (pumps, compressors, heat exchangers, reactors...)
- instrumentation (flow meters, temperature transmitters, pressure gauges...)
- piping and fittings
- signals (pneumatic, hydraulic, electric...)
Included in the course are access to numerous downloadable resources, real industrial examples of P&ID’s and the keys to interpret them in high quality video lectures. You will be able to practice and become even more proficient with these bonus items that you will find throughout the course.
So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum of the course and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.
Hope to see you there
