After SP3D Training Enter into a Booming Career Path in Plant and Pipe Design Management

Mar 9th 2015 at 3:17 AM

After SP3D training (Smart Plant 3D), the avenues for piping designers to work in are limitless. Be it the petroleum industry where they create effective piping systems to transport natural gas and oil to the public works area where they design tubing systems that transport sewage; pipe designers are needed everywhere. Whatever the domain they work, pipe designers are required to create innovative, cost-effective, efficient and effective designs.

Designing piping and tubing systems

A pipe technician creates pipe routing, and tubing systems that transport gas, water, petroleum, sewage or any other fluid. This professional combines knowledge of systems, industry standards, and performance criteria to create piping systems that are safe and functional. Depending on the roles and responsibilities assigned, this person may have a degree in engineering, mechanics, civil, constructions and so on. They use CAD systems extensively to support detailed drawings and present them to stakeholders.

Piping designers in the construction industry

Piping engineers design, the plumbing and sprinkling equipments that are used in homes and commercial spaces. They create efficient routing mechanisms to route construction debris. Water is an important part of the curing process in the construction industry, and efficient use and reuse of water is required. Piping infrastructure to support these use cases are conceptualized, designed and manufactured.

What knowledge should a piping designer need to learn or know?

Piping technicians can learn all the skills to become job-ready or enhance their knowledge with a piping design course. Pipe designers need to know about piping components such as fitting, valves, and flanges. These and more such components make up the vocabulary of piping design. There are numerous varieties of fittings, piping materials, flange class ratings, valve designs etc.

A project has different engineering and design groups. The involved groups may be process, structural, mechanical, civil, vessels & tanks, equipment, electrical and instruments, etc. A piping engineer needs to understand how these groups contribute to the project and the relationship between them.

Another important knowledge area is piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID). There are a variety of drawings as well namely equipment vendor, instrument vendor diagrams, stress analysis illustrations, etc. Last but not the least this professional should know a good tool such as Smart Plant (SP3D), which can be learnt at an SP3D training.
