Static Equipment and Heat Exchangers

Static Equipment and Heat Exchangers
The term heat exchanger encompasses all devices used to transfer energy from one fluid to another. Some examples of this group are: radiators, water heaters, refrigeration batteries, evaporators, steam generators, etc. Direct contact heat exchangers, also known as mix exchangers, are devices where both fluids undergo a complete physical mixture. On the other hand, devices in which heat transfer takes place through a flat or cylindrical surface are calle

Hook Up Diagrams, FAT and SAT Support

Hook Up Diagrams, FAT and SAT Support
Investing in equipment should never have to be a risk. Testing equipment and reviewing documentation for traceability purposes does a great deal towards lowering the risk of your investment. Accepting the equipment only after completing a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is industry standard, but the process can be overwhelming. A few ways to make an FAT run smoothly include: Commissioning: Going through testing requirements will help you catch issues earl

Piping Material Takeoff, Fabrication Drawings & Bill of Material

Piping Material Takeoff, Fabrication Drawings & Bill of Material
MTO means Material Take-Off. This is the action of counting of the pieces and parts needed to fabricate, purchase and or construct something. BOM means Bill of Material. This is normally a listing of only the material shown on an individual specific drawing such as a piping Isometric. BOQ means Bill of Quantity (also called Material Summary). This is the totaling of all the quantities from all the BOM’s from all the project to send to a piping suppli

As Built Drawings

As Built Drawings
As-built drawings are an essential part of every construction project. The main purpose an as-built drawing serves is to replicate how the contractor built the project and identify what changes were made throughout the course of constructing the project. The final sets of as-built drawings hold important information; such as shop drawing changes, design changes, field changes, approved and disapproved changes during construction, and any minor or major mod

Piping Stress Analysis

Piping Stress Analysis
A pipe stress analysis (thermal flexibility analysis) predicts stresses in piping and loads on equipment resulting from thermal gradients, thermal transients, weights, pressure, and bolt-up strain. This study is typically required for piping that experiences high temperature fluctuations, or for long pipe runs such as hot piping to coolers or headers. Cases where equipment is sensitive to external loads may also require a pipe stress analysis. The study

Piping Modeling Including Pipe Support

Piping Modeling Including Pipe Support
Piping engineers must handle different codes, standards and specifications for Plant Piping and Layout creation. Moreover, error-free layout creation is important for getting accurate BOMs. They also spend a lot of time in doing data consistency checks and creating multiple iterations. Having good understanding of various load cases for piping flexibility analysis and pipe rack design is also critical when they do piping design. Pinnacle Technology Service

Digitizing and CAD Modeling, Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Digitizing and CAD Modeling, Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Computer Aided Design (CAD) Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) are two significantly different disciplines, and hence they require different shape models representations. As a result, models generated by CAD systems are often unsuitable for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) needs. In this paper, a new approach is proposed to reduce the gaps between CAD and CAE software's. It is based on new shape representation called mixed s
