    INTRODUCTION TO PIPING


    The piping system is important to all plant operations. Because it looks very simple it is sometimes overlooked. However, if the piping system does not operate properly a plant will shutdown.
    It is very important that the trainee understands what a piping system does. An operator must ensure that the equipment is installed, maintained and operated correctly.

    Every plant has large and small piping systems. These systems have many different uses in a plant. All fluids and gases in a plant are moved from place to place in piping systems. The piping system includes pipe, pipe fittings to control the direction of flow and valves to control the amount of flow.

    The size of the pipe, pipe fittings and valves will vary depending on the different processes. The material used to make up the piping system depends on the material being carried by the system.



    The piping systems in a plant carry hot and cold water, crude oil, refined products, chemicals, gases and other fluids at many different temperatures, pressures, and flow rates.

    All parts of a piping system must be properly inspected and maintained. The loss of a single piping system in one part of a plant may cause the shutdown of processes in the plant. It is very important that the trainee operator understands the operation and maintenance of the piping systems.

    The main functions of a piping system are:

    To contain, control, transport and transfer liquids through the plant processes.

    To transport and transfer finished products to the storage facilities and sales.

    you are right classmate

    piping is important and it's not easy

    that's why the companies while construction bring experts to install it

    it's really important issue.
