"A piping and instrumentation diagram/drawing (P&ID) is a diagram in the process industry which shows the piping of the process flow together with the installed equipment and instrumentation. ...
P&IDs play a significant role in the maintenance and modification of the process that it describes. It is critical to demonstrate the physical sequence of equipment and systems, as well as how these systems connect. During the design stage, the diagram also provides the basis for the development of system control schemes, allowing for further safety and operational investigations, such as a Hazard Analysis and Operability Study...
For processing facilities, it is a pictorial representation of:
Key piping and instrument details,
Control and shutdown schemes,
Safety and regulatory requirements,
Basic start up and operational information." [Piping and instrumentation diagram. Wikipedia]
The piping and instrumentation diagram template for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is included in the Chemical and Process Engineering solution from the Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
