Layout and Design of Process Plant Equipment and Piping Systems

28 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Develop a practical working knowledge of process equipment and piping systems layout
  • Become familiar with design principles, procedures and best practices
  • Determine the impact of layout and pipe routings options
  • Understand design and construction codes and standards for piping and process equipment
  • Enhance your knowledge of stress analysis and better appreciate its role in avoiding failures
  • Learn from catastrophic incidents that resulted from poor layout and design

Designing process plants is a complex and demanding process. The plant layout design is one of the most important tasks before plant construction. A good plant layout can not only reduce capital costs but also help improve the plant’s safety and reduce its environmental impact. Additionally, fast and easy access to the parts of the plant and the equipment is essential for effective operation and maintenance, which means higher plant availability and a longer time between failures. This course will familiarize participants with the technical characteristics of process plant equipment and piping systems.

This course will include several class workshops consisting of case studies and selected practical, real-world examples to solve in teamwork.
