Piping Isometrics, commonly referred to as Isos, are encountered nowadays throughout all process industries such as Oil & Gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, or food industries.
These engineering drawings are used worldwide in industrial plant design, construction, commissioning, operation, and maintenance.
They provide clear information on the configuration and routing of piping systems.
As a potential actor in these industries, it is therefore vital that you have a thorough understanding of Piping Isometric components and construction.
Piping Isometrics doesn’t have to be complicated! It isn’t rocket science!
This course will make you a Piping Isometric expert, and you will know how to read, interpret and successfully understand all of those many lines and piping symbols. The knowledge gained in this course will help you to understand ALL Isos 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 give you an edge over your competitors when seeking employment at one of these industrial facilities.
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 isometric features, such as isometric offsets.
Symbols are also discussed thoroughly with all the isometric standards, conventions, and designation codes that apply to them. These include :
- valves (gate, globe, ball, butterfly...)
- process equipment (pumps, compressors, heat exchangers, reactors...)
- instrumentation (flow meters, temperature transmitters, pressure gauges...)
- piping and fittings
The course includes access to numerous downloadable resources, real industrial examples of Piping Isometrics, and the keys to interpreting them in high-quality video lectures. You will be able to practice and become even more proficient with these bonus items you will find throughout the course.
Course Learning Objectives
By the end of this training course, you will be able to :
