Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams

A Piping and Instrumentation Diagram, known as a P&ID, shows how process equipment is connected and by the use of symbols, represents flow directions, safety and control systems, pressure ratings and other key piping and instrument details of a system.   

An understanding of P&IDs is essential when carrying out plant and process operations, such as tracing faults, isolating equipment and locating items for maintenance.

In this module we will take a detailed look at P&IDs, and show you how to read and understand the major parts. We will explore the actual process equipment and illustrate how specific parts are represented on the diagrams.
