Polymer Plant Carrier Gas System Piping Design

Industry: Polymer

Location: Texas Gulf Coast

Client Benefits: Project benefit was improved product quality. The project was completed before shutdown and on schedule with added scope items.

Project Drivers & Client Challenges:

  • Product Quality Improvement
  • Routing new piping in heavily congested area
  • Installing new instruments into piping with little space
  • Pieces scattered in multiple units
  • Locating j-boxes and routing conduit and wiring within existing infrastructure

Burrow Global Scope of Supply:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Piping Design
  • Civil/Structural Engineering Instrument/Electrical Engineering

Scope Description:
Burrow Global provided mechanical, piping, civil/structural and I&E design and engineering to support carrier gas system changes in a polymer plant along the Texas Gulf Coast. Our team verified spacing of existing piping and structure then notified client of additional work needed for the task. We also modeled existing piping and new piping to verify spacing and accessibility of valves. The result was a design that gave our client improved options for installing new piping to reduce cost and for maintenance accessibility.

Our detailed responsibilities included the preparation of documentation associated with the project as follows:

  • Red-lined P&ID’s, line list, tie-point list, tie-point photos, tie-point location plans, isometrics
  • Civil location plans, section, and details
  • Structure location plans, sections, and details for additional pipe supports
  • Instrument List
  • Loop drawings
  • Location drawings
  • Spec sheets
  • Installation detail drawings
