About Globe Valves

About Global Valves

Overview: A Globe valves is a linear motion valve and are primarily designed to stop, start and regulate flow. The disk of a Globe valve can be totally removed from the flow-path or it can completely close the flow-path. Conventional Globe valves may be used for isolation and throttling services. Although these valves exhibit slightly higher pressure drops than straight=through ... Read More »

Piping Design Engineering – 3D Modelling

Piping Design Engineering-3D Modelling

The 3-D software allows interaction between all disciplines in the 3D design workflow by allowing by comprehensive set of integrated applications covering all engineering disciplines at its core. Through the design, standard and automated deliverable can be generated directly from the model. The inbuilt linkages within the software allows for updating of sequential designs or drawings for any changes in ... Read More »

Pipe Support Types and Application

Pipe Support Types and application

A piping design engineer also needs to have an excellent knowledge on pipe support types and it point of application. Supports are the pillars of piping system. A system without proper support is risky and disastrous. The supports in piping system has vital role in minimizing the unwanted loads caused due to shock, vibration, wind load, seismic load, water hammer ... Read More »

How to Read P&ID

How to Read P&ID

Sound knowledge in P&ID is inevitable. The P&ID is the key input for all the piping activities. It is very important for a piping design engineers to read, understand and interpret the P&ID (Process design) in to mechanical system. Preparation of P&ID is the role of process engineer hence piping design engineer are only expected to understand P&ID. There is ... Read More »

History of Ultrasonics

History of Ultrasonics

Prior to world war II, sonar, the technique of sending sound waves through water and observing the returning echoes to characterize submerged objects, inspired early ultrasound investigators to explore ways to apply the concept to medical diagnosis. In 1929 and 1935, Sokolov studied the use of ultrasonic waves in detecting metal objects. Mulhauser, in 1931, obtained a patent for using ... Read More »

Pipe Fittings and Valves

Pipe Fittings and Valves

The piping components consist of fittings, pipes and valves Pipe Fittings and Valves Piping system is an arrangement of components which facilitates the flow of fluid as per the process requirement. The piping components consist of fittings, pipes and valves. Piping design engineer shall have the in-depth knowledge of types of fittings (such as elbow, tee, reducer, flange etc.), Pipes ...
