PDMS Piping Design – PDMS pipework Tutorial – Aveva PDMS 12 Training Videos


Pipe routing is probably the activity that consumes most time on any large project and it is also one, which causes the
most problems. Pipe routing in PDMS has always been one of the major strengths of the system, as you will discover in
this module.

At the end of this training, you will be able to:
• Explain the basic concepts of pipes and branches.
• Describe the use of piping specifications in PDMS.
• Have a sound knowledge of branch heads and tails and the importance of component list order and flow
direction within a branch. Continue reading “PDMS Piping Design – PDMS pipework Tutorial – PDMS 12 Training Videos” »

PDMS Piping Tutorial – how to add Equipment connected by menu bar or command line

All branches need to have a start and end point. These can be a position in space (3D co-ordinates), the flange face of a nozzle, a tee or various other points in your design. Heads and tails are set up via a series of attributes that belong to the branch element.

(pdms training): The next step in designing a pipe is to create and position a series of fittings, which define the pipe route you require.
Just as on a drawing board, you need to decide which piping components are needed in order to satisfy the requirements of the process. The components must be arranged so that the pipe meets its design needs. However, unlike on the drawing board, you do not need to know any fitting dimensions, PDMS derives these automatically from the catalogue.
To create piping fittings, you need to select an item from the list of fittings available to you from the associated piping specification. Typical types of fitting available are Elbows, Tees, Reducers, Flanges, Gaskets and Valves etc. There is some intelligence build into the PDMS forms so that by placing for example a valve the associated Gaskets and Flanges will also be created.
For all piping components, you will need to carry out the following steps: – Select the component from the piping specification, position the component and set the orientation.
There tube is not created explicitly it is created automatically or implied by placing fittings.

In the same way that design offices have standard piping specifications, PDMS has a set of specifications from which
you can choose. In fact all the components you will use in PDMS must be defined in the Catalogue and be placed in a
Specification before you can use them. In the Training Project there are three such specifications:
These specifications contain all the fittings you will require for the course exercises.
