TECHNOEDIF’s Piping and Layouts area is made up of technical specialists with extensive national and international experience in the realization of industrial plant projects, mainly developing the following activities:

  • Studies for equipment location and piping arrangement according to international rules, codes and standards and using the PDMS 3D modeling tool;
  • Piping flexibility analysis – static calculation (tensions, displacements and forces) and dynamic (free vibrations – natural frequencies);
  • Preparation of general layout drawings, piping layouts, isometric and piping material listings, thermal insulation and painting (material take-offs and bill of materials);
  • Preparation of layouts for electrical and instrument cable routes and implementation of instruments and junction boxes;
  • Preparation of tie-ins in projects to modify existing units (revamping), including on-site marking and testing follow-up;
  • Coordination and integration in the 3D model of the various disciplines involved in the project, such as instrumentation / electrical, civil / structures, sewer systems, safety and packages of equipment suppliers, in order to eliminate the existence of conflicts or interferences and ensure greater reliability of the projects;
  • Preparation and holding of model review meetings in different phases of the project, aiming to allow the client to be involved in the solutions adopted during the execution phase of the project and to ensure the optimization of constructive aspects and the fulfillment of specific requirements in accessibility and maintenance;
  • Definition of pipe supports, in coordination with the calculation of flexibility, and dimensioning of special supports;
  • Piping flexibility analysis – static calculation (tensions, displacements and forces) and dynamic (free vibrations – natural frequencies);
  • Implementation of as built models of existing installations through the integration of 3D surveys in PDMS environment, including the issuance of the respective project documentation;
  • Support for site supervision using the on-site 3D model, which ensures a better coordination of the assembly and the immediate updating of the model for issuing documentation as built.

Up-to-the-minute three-dimensional high reliability documentation.

The highly qualified technicians and the specialized equipment that we have allows us, in a short period of time, to obtain up-to-date three-dimensional documentation and high reliability of industrial installations and other constructions.

This technology, which is based on the use of high definition laser equipment, allows the subsequent execution of projects to change industrial installations and buildings in 3D model.

Our experience in the use of this technology, reflected in our own procedures developed and proven by more than 50 projects executed with great success, allows us to our clients significant savings in their investments and in the costs with the immobilization of their units of production.

This technology, coupled with the most modern project execution techniques available, allows our clients to benefit from intelligent models of their installations with the consequent advantages in terms of operation and maintenance, as well as future revamp projects.

Technoedif has extensive experience in the development of equipment of calculation activities taking into account design conditions, stability and external loads, specification of design and manufacturing requirements, selection of suitable materials to the service, monitoring and verification of construction drawings, monitoring, inspection and support the construction of static equipment, supported by a group of technicians with extensive experience in these activities, and in various industries.

Among the static equipment we highlight atmospheric tanks, pressure equipment: reactors, columns, spheres, heat exchangers, tanks. Other configuration of equipment and special construction can be the subject of study by Technoedif.

Oil and Gas, Energy and Food industry are the industries to stand out, in addition to individual factories.

The activities in this area include the various stages of an engineering project, namely

I) Study design / feasibility / cost estimate;
II) Basic engineering / FEED / FEL;
III) Detail Engineering, with equipment of calculation taking into account design conditions, stability and external loads, specification, analysis of proposals, analysis of documents from suppliers;
IV) Inspections manufacturing / Reception in the work equipment;
V) Technical Assistance for the Construction / support pre commissioning and commissioning.
These activities are integrated into the set of activities that constitute an integrated project engineering, particularly in coordination with other areas of activity of the Company: 3D Layouts, Construction, Instrumentation, Electricity, Infrastructure, etc, reflecting the final product a 3D model of the facility.

The equipment and the respective calculations can be developed according to building codes and standards commonly used in the areas of activity are reported: PED, ASME, Eurocodes, EN, API, TEMA, EEMUA, etc. specified equipment according to other codes or building codes may be the subject of study by Technoedif Engineering. Special calculations may also be developed using specific software, such as is the case with ANSYS.
