Section 12 - Field Issues


Have you ever been in the field and had a pipe, object, or point that is just out of reach.

I’ve had that problem also.


Locating nozzles on existing tanks and cylindrical vessels

The term "strapping" is the term used to locating nozzles and other item on a tank or cylindrical vessel.


Sometimes, mostly never, things do not get installed in the field as square as they are on our models and drawings. So we either need to locate these things for future additions


To add or modify piping that is in the field, we need to verify what we are working with first.
Before going to the field, gather all existing drawings, photos, and flow sheets of the area you are working on.
This might help out develop sketches in advance to verify in the field.
