P&ID's shows all piping including physical sequences of branches, reducers, valves, equipment, instrumentation and control interlocks.
The P&ID's are used to operate process systems.
A P&ID should include:
- Instrumentation and designations
- Mechanical equipment with names and numbers
- All valves and their identifications
- Process piping, sizes and identification
- Miscellaneous - vents, drains, special fittings, sampling lines, reducers, increasers and swagers
- Permanent start-up and flush lines
- Flow directions
- Interconnections references
- Control inputs and outputs, interlocks
- Interfaces for class changes
- Seismic category
- Quality level
- Annunciation inputs
- Computer control system input
- Vendor and contractor interfaces
- Identification of components and subsystems delivered by others
- Intended physical sequence of the equipment
The figure below illustrates a very small and simplified P&ID:
A P&ID should not include:
- Equipment rating or capacities
- Instrument root valves
- Control relays
- Manual switches and indicating lights
- Primary instrument tubing and valves
- Pressure temperature and flow data
- Elbows and similar standard fittings
- Extensive explanatory notes
