Today’s talking Points: Schematic Diagrams


Commonly referred to as a “schematic”, this diagram shows paths of flow by single lines, and operations or process equipment are represented by simple figures such as rectangles and circles. notes on the process will often be included. the diagram is not to scale, but relationships between equipment and piping with regard to the process are shown. the desired spatial arrangement of equipment and piping may be broadly indicated. Usually, the schematic is not used after the initial planning stage, but serves to develop the process flow diagram which then becomes the primary reference.
