Engineers pay special attention to safe facilities operating in full compliance. To obtain it, they need to use knowledgeable and cost-saving solutions. That’s why we’ve helped deliver a visual part of a tool allowing users to create networks and diagrams depicting the arrangement of pipes and other objects connected to a flare to burn by-products of construction and chemical side.

|Business need||Optimizing and cost-saving solution for refinery|
|Scope||simulation and pipeline diagrams for digital twin|
The solution supports the user in the process of creating network diagrams. The autocomplete function gives tips on what elements to build the network with and how to route the piping. The snap to grid solution ensures the readability of the diagram. In the case of exchanging objects in the network, the system itself recommends the available options.
The canvas presents the entire system with conditioning elements such as inlets and outlets. The available mini-menu makes it easier for users to create a network by quickly accessing the most frequently used objects. Furthermore, only the possible extension options are shown to ensure the proper functioning of the network, while the rest of the possibilities are greyed out.
The visual system allows you to simulate the network to check for serious errors. For this purpose, the interface is equipped with error signaling with three severity levels: concern, warning, error. Thanks to this, it is possible to test failure scenarios and their potential consequences, e.g., disconnection of the network in the event of an uncontrolled fire.
Flows are an essential element of the simulation. The system presents flows in an animated and static form. It is possible to view the system from a high-level perspective, where vital objects are visible while insignificant ones are grayed out. Nodes with signaling are shown as adornments.
Safe facilities operating in full compliance are a must for oil & gas industry companies. To ensure the best performance, engineers need to use cost-saving solutions. For simulations purposes, the visual tool allows users to create pipe and instrumentation diagrams.
