Project Synopsis

Walkdown and develop As-Built P&ID drawings of the Process Safety Management (PSM) covered portions of the ethanol production facility.

Project Summary

Process Engineering Associates, LLC (PROCESS) was contracted by the client, an ethanol manufacturer, to develop As-Built P&ID drawings of the Process Safety Management (PSM) covered portions of an ethanol production facility.  The following tasks were performed:

  • A walkdown of the site to create red-lined hand sketches. The PSM chemical processing areas included two (2) Distillation and Evaporation facilities, Tank Farm, and an ethanol production skid.
  • A walkdown of the system controls to validate and update the controls shown on the PSM area P&IDs. Interlocks, which were not previously shown, were also identified and incorporated into all applicable P&IDs.
  • Drafting of the sketches into 23 As-Built P&IDs.
  • A back-check of all drawings prior to the final As-Built P&ID submission.

PROCESS utilized its licensed AutoCad P&ID software to perform this task.

PROCESS supplied the client with the electronic versions of the new drawings that were created along with .pdf files of the drawing package.
