Spectacle Blind (SB) And Spade Locations

In Pressure Vessel huge transfer lines routing through furnaces must be welded in place of opted flanged joints especially to columns to evade leakage. In such circumstances provision of spectacle blind (SB) or spade is necessary on the furnace side of the transfer lines, mainly on the smaller diameter. The distance maintained between the insulated [...]

Design of Pressure relief devices-2

Inlet piping pressure losses: Piping hydraulics to be carried out for every non-recoverable loss in inlet lines at each appropriate lowest accumulation, almost all relief devices necessitates inlet loss evaluation, other than those directly equipped for pressure vacuum vent and Thermal Expansion relief valve’s (TERV’s) where the heat produced is because of surroundings and not [...]

Design of Pressure Relief Devices-1

Relief Device Location and Installation Relief devices must be mounted upright at all times, for example pilot operated or pneumatically operated relief devices, spring loaded relief valves, and thermal expansion relief valves (TERV’s) TERV’s have a major impact leading to heavy loss of control, when piping is connected to its body-flange; hence these shall be [...]

PIPING TECHNOLOGY

Piping Technology Itinerary

Piping Technology Itinerary

When I first came across the densely populated A1 sized piping GA’s with a multi network of piping and felt it’s not my baby, only thing that kept me consistent was a pride that I was going to learn a cream part of Engineering, well I slowly but surely proceeded further to learn, and things [...]

PETROLEUM

Oil and Gas -Vertical Separator

Oil and Gas -Vertical Separator

The mixture of oil and gas enters inlet (A) where it is given a swirling motion by a spiral inlet baffle in the separator space or chamber (B). At this point there are two forces tending to separate the oil from the gas. The first is the effect of gravity; the second is whirling action, [...]

History of Petroleum

History of Petroleum

Well it’s legendary that petroleum industry is the vast and a major source of money minting business all around the globe. The word Petroleum is derived from Latin, Petra which means “Rock” and Oleum which means “Oil”.  This has been used since ancient epoch but now is of great importance. The gargantuan history is that [...]
