Today’s talking Points: Flow Diagram


This is an unscale drawing describing the process. it is also referred to as a ‘flow sheet’.
It should state the materials to be conveyed by the piping, conveyors, etc., and specify their rates of flow and other information such as temperature and pressure, where of interest. this information may be ‘flagged’ (on lines) withing the diagram or be tabulated on a separated Panel.
Wheather a flow diagram is to be in in elevation or plan view should depend on how the P&ID is to be presented. To easily relate the two drawings, both should be presented in the same view. Elevations are suitable for simple systems arranged vertically. Installations covering large horizontal areas are best shown in plan view.
