Piping system design is a key element in various fields of plant commissioning. Piping & accessories constitute major part of total capital investment in chemical, petroleum & petrochemical, pharmaceutical, power generation, fertilizer, oil & gas industries and long distance LNG/LPG/CNG piping system & irrigation projects. Piping professional plays an important role from “concept to commissioning” in all sectors of process and related industry. This course is comprehensive and highly practical which covers fundamentals of piping design and plant layout, the equipment used, design principles and procedures.
