Pipeline buoyancy must be considered anytime there is a possibility that pipe flotation could occur or be ready for dramatic damages to the pipeline. Although, it’s a simple calculation but an important aspect.
Expansion loops are one of the most effective ways to increase the flexibility in the piping system. The stress is generated in the pipelines due to thermal expansion or contraction and it can be damped by the arms of the loops mounted vertically to the mainline.
A pipeline has to be routed in such a manner as to avoid any potential weak link, due to its potentially large movement. Bends are the most common weak links of the pipelines. If a bend used in a pipeline is not properly designed, the large bulging movement…
The following article will provide a sample case study for Storage Tanks Layout or Tank Farm based on OISD-Standards-118.
In this article, we will learn the tank farm design considerations, storage tanks arrangement, tank farm length, and width calculation, and dyke wall height calculation.
The pump piping design can have an important impact on the operating efficiency and life expectancy of any pump. Hence, the piping design engineer must consider the important points while designing the pump piping layout.
The type of piping joint used for the piping system must be suitable for the pressure-temperature conditions of that line and should be selected by considering the joint tightness and mechanical strength under the service conditions…
Cavitation is a very common problem for pumps. If you hear strange noises coming from your pump, there is a good chance that cavitation is the reason.
A pressure-temperature rating table or PT rating table is prepared to show the maximum allowable …
Miter Elbow or Miter Bend is a Fabricated Fitting used to change the pipeline direction. The Standard Fittings (Wrought Elbows) are not easily available and economical for the larger sizes.
