Processes Representation

3 days PGP/PROCREP
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Technical staff using process diagrams.
Purpose
  • This course provides practical keys to read, understand and use process diagrams.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • explain the symbols of a PID legend,
  • read and understand a process described with PFD or PIDs,
  • efficiently participate to a PID review.
Prerequisite
  • Basic knowledge of industrial equipment (rotating, static, thermal, instrumentation).
Ways and means
  • Various examples issued from refining/chemical processes.
  • Use of a set of complex PIDs to understand process flow, instrumentation loops, equipment characteristics, …
  • PID review with checklist/HAZOP initiation.

BLOCK DIAGRAM 0.25 day
  • Splitting a process in blocks. Elaborating a block diagram.
PROCESS FLOW DIAGRAM (PFD) 0.25 day
  • Use of a PFD, added value compared to the Block Diagram. Type of information included in a PFD.
  • Symbols used for each element.
  • Importance of Utility flow diagrams (UFD). Complementarity with Process flow diagrams.
PIPING & INSTRUMENTATION DIAGRAM (P&ID) 1 day
  • Purpose of PIDs: users from engineering phase to operation.
  • Process and utilities P&IDs. Key elements indicated on PIDs.
  • Elaboration, rules, organization of a PID, level of detail. notes, holds, comments.
  • Contents of a P&ID: equipment, piping, instrumentation, links between them. Incorporation of packages and skids. Evolution according to design/operation phases.
  • PID symbols (PID 0 or PID legend): typical symbols (ISA-5-1984).
  • Documents associated with a PID (piping classes, isometrics, …).
P&ID REVIEWS 0.5 day
  • Design reviews: Focus on HSE and Operability with HAZOP review.
  • Organization of the review, selection of attendees. Action plan. Validation. Reporting and follow-up process.
