Would anybody at Pipedesigners know of any resources that show the actual P&ID
used to produced the finished equipment. I am very interested in seeing comparisons between
the P&ID and a finished 3d model or photos of the actual process or equipment
made using the P&ID. P&IDs don't show you how to physically arrange the piping,
valves, equipment etc. I would like to compare the P&ID with the reality of
the finished item so I can better understand the reasoning behind the finished
layout.

Gaitano:
Regarding your question. The P&IDs are "schematic" drawings, the physical plant is the real thing. You will never see a P&ID that resembles the physical plant or a physical plant that resembles the P&ID. It is not reasonable to expect this or strive for it.

Jop;

I appreciate your response but I thought it would be interesting to review actual P&IDs along with their
finished systems. I realize the physical appearance of the finished system will not look exact to the P&ID
schematic. I was hoping to find a resource that I could see those comparisons.
My second post on this issue is for the suggestions, ideas and comments section. I think it would
be educational to provide some form of comparison of P&IDs and their finished appearance. Like have the same
P&ID modeled by 5 designers and then compare the results. I think a lot could be learned from this. I find
it interesting to read about how designers resolve issues with P&IDs.

Thanks
Gaitano
