The importance of piping engineering and piping engineers

  1. 1. The Importance of Piping Engineering consultantand Piping EngineersSummary: Piping Engineering consultant is an emerging engineering science, although it has beenthere for years. Pipes are crucial for any plants, so are the individuals who help in creating plans anddesigns to make the sufficient piping system for a facility. The article draws light on the importanceof Piping Engineering consultant and piping engineers.A piping system is crucial to any process plant; hence it needs to be designed with precision andcare. The efficiency of a plant highly depends on its ability to transport fluid through the pipes tovarious equipment that function collectively. In order to create a piping system, it requires asystematic analysis of various engineering methods. In the past years, many standard practices forpiping system has emerged, and today piping system is considered to be one of the majorengineering sciences. As a result there is a continuous need for trained piping engineers to designpiping system in every engineering and construction company.As an academic discipline, Piping Engineeringconsultant is rarely taught in universities. However, itis extremely important for the safety of plant, safetyof the personnel, public, and also for maintaining thelevel of consistency in a facility.Pipes on the surface are simple to comprehend; theyare a cylindrical bar with a hole in it to allow the flowof fluid or gaseous substance. Pipes in a plant aresubjected to numerous loading conditions in their lifespan. Piping systems can fail, hence it is important for the engineers to consider possible outcomesand work their way out to prevent the failure of the piping system and other hazards.The Role of a piping engineer in an engineering company:-“Pipes do fail, and sometimes with disastrous outcomes. A piping engineer at the plant understandsthe potential risks, can aid in troubleshooting the issues.”A piping engineer is a mechanical engineer whose expertise lies in disciplines which deal withplanning, design and implementation of various piping systems (including plumbing system) forbroad spectrum of industrial plants. Industries such as: manufacturing, oil and gas, energy,agriculture and food, residential and commercial construction, chemical, etc. are the majorindustries which take the help of Piping Engineering consultants and professionals to implement theapt piping system for better functioning of their plants. The piping engineer’s duties andresponsibilities vary depending on the position in a specific industry. The companies prefer pipingengineers who have a degree in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, or pipe engineering. Pipeengineers are expected to have excellent drafting and analytical skills, in order to ensure that theplanned piping projects are documented and designed well, and built to meet the desired functions.These professionals are expected to have strong management skills for both supervising the teamand executing specific tasks. The main responsibility of a piping engineer is to create fundamentaldrawings that define the functions of a piping system and to decide what materials should be usedto create them. They help in choosing the appropriate materials to be used for pipes. Also, engineersconduct huge amount of research and development activities while creating the piping systems.As we have seen that pipes are an inevitable part of any process plants, hence it is equally importantto have the right piping engineer or Piping Engineering consultant before setting up a facility.
