Engineering Design Guidelines

and Project Engineering Standards

The Operators, Maintenance and Engineers Toolbox

The Engineering Fact Book

 

KLM Technology Group has developed Engineering Design Guidelines and Project Engineering Standards to assist design engineers, operations and maintenance personnel in designing many of the equipment types in refining, off shore production and chemical plant unit operations. 

Engineering Standards are typically a collection of multiple industry references which need to be reviewed by an operations personnel or design engineer when designing or specifying a piece of equipment such as a control valve, relief valve or heat exchanger.  

The references at times can almost seem to contradicted each other.  There is a vast amount of engineering hours spent each year in reviewing these industry references and very often no good recommendation is developed from the reference review. 

To help simplify this process, we have reviewed the industry references and have developed guidelines for engineers to do Preliminary Designs and Process Specification Sheets.  The final design must always be guaranteed for the service selected by the manufacturing vendor, but these guidelines will greatly reduce the amount of up front engineering hours that are required to develop the final design. The guidelines are a training tool for young engineers or a resource for engineers with experience.

There are some very low cost guidelines and programs, sometimes even free, provided by the equipment vendors.  Let the buyer beware, many times these guidelines and programs tend to pick their brand as the best choice - good for the vendor, maybe not so good for the buyer.

Project Engineering Standards and Specification

Each Engineering Standard and Specification has 5 parts

A. Introduction / Scope - an introduction which has an overview of each application - 1 to 3 pages.

B.  Definitions - a list of definitions used in the industry and these guidelines - 1 to 3 pages.

C.  Theory - the engineering fundamentals and principals that are used in this particular standard - 1 to 20 pages.

D. General Considerations - how the engineering fundamentals and principals are applied in this general  field - 1 to 20 pages.

F.  Specific Standards and Specifications - how the engineering fundamentals and principals are applied in this specific field - 1 to 20 pages.
