The shapes in this legend are representative of the functional relationship between piping, instrumentation, and system equipment units. This group includes hardware like compressors, conveyors, motors, turbines, vacuums, and other mechanical devices. Piping symbols A pipe is a tube that transports fluid substances. Piping can be made of various materials, including metal and plastic. The piping group is made up of one-to-many pipes, multi-line pipes, separators, and other types of piping devices. Vessel symbols A vessel is a container that is used to store fluid.

Connect pipes and equipment, then review the details with a trusted colleague. Walk through the process several times and search for inefficiencies. Share with collaborators. It should provide a concise and easy-to-understand illustration of all the equipment to be included in the process flow, alert information around hazard, safeguards and potential faults so that errors can be minimized or eliminated. It will help support the development of operating and maintenance procedures.
Here are two examples: This example shows a fluid flow system and defines mechanical and design configurations that are in place. Diagramming is quick and easy with Lucidchart. Start a free trial today to start creating and collaborating. ISA S5. Discrete instruments are signified by circular elements. Computer functions are indicted by a hexagon, and programmable logic controller PLC functions are shown as a triangle inside a square.
A single horizontal bar across any of the four graphical elements means the function resides in the primary location category. A double line indicates an auxiliary location, and no line places the device or function in the field. Devices located behind a panel-board in some other inaccessible location are shown with a dashed horizontal line Letter and number combinations appear inside each graphical element and letter combinations are defined by the ISA standard.
Numbers are user assigned and schemes vary with some companies use of sequential numbering. Some tie the instrument number to the process line number. Others may choose to adopt unique and sometimes unusual numbering systems.
The first letter defines the measured or initiating variables. This group includes hardware like compressors, conveyors, motors, turbines, vacuums, and other mechanical devices. Piping A pipe is a tube that transports fluid substances. Piping can be made of various materials, including metal and plastic.
The piping group is made up of one-to-many pipes, multi-line pipes, separators, and other types of piping devices. Vessels A vessel is a container that is used to store fluid.
It may also alter the characteristics of the fluid during storage. The vessels category includes tanks, cylinders, columns, bags, and other vessels. This category includes boilers, condensers, and other heat exchangers. Pumps A pump is a device that uses suction or pressure to raise, compress, or move fluids in and out of other objects. This section is comprised of both pumps and fans. Instruments An instrument is a device that measures—and sometimes controls—quantities such as flow, temperature, angle, or pressure.
The instruments group houses indicators, transmitters, recordings, controllers, and elements. Valves A valve regulates, directs, or controls the flow of a fluid by opening, closing, or partially obstructing passageways in a piping system.
This category includes rotameters, orifices, and other types of valves. Because of its intuitive user interface and collaborative features, it is the most popular online Visio alternative. Fully integrated: Diagramming can fit seamlessly into your current workflow.
Your diagram can also be embedded on any HTML website. Our cloud-based tool allows collaborators to work together for detailed, accurate work. To save time and energy, Lucidchart allows you to sketch out diagram requirements early on.
Use our real-time collaboration—including group chat and commenting—while working with clients, engineers, and designers. We offer the same shape set, but with a much friendlier price tag. Ship ballast water is terrible for the environment. Its discharge usually includes non-native nuisance species that can cause extensive ecological and economic damage to aquatic ecosystems.
P&ID Symbols and Notation
JoJozragore Remember to click save after changing the columns and reports before clicking apply or ok. Orthographic Folder This folder is the location where you want orthographics that you will issue. This dialog is extremely similar to the Assign Tag Format dialog, and lets you set up the Attribute Definition to display properties of the target entity, properties of the Drawing, or properties of the Project. If the answer to these two questions is yes, do not create a new class. Make sure to note that the first field is the Display Name which may include spaces. Managing these palettes can be done through standard AutoCAD techniques. Next, set all other parameters to not visible.

Valve Symbols Valves are used to control the direction, flow rate, and pressure of fluids. Figure 1 shows the symbols that depict the major valve types. It should be noted that globe and gate valves will often be depicted by the same valve symbol. In such cases, information concerning the valve type may be conveyed by the component identification number or by the notes and legend section of the drawing; however, in many instances even that may not hold true. Figure 1 : Valve Symbols Valve Actuators Some valves are provided with actuators to allow remote operation, to increase mechanical advantage, or both. Figure 2 shows the symbols for the common valve actuators.
