Proplant, an engineering company in Slovakia, was contracted to redesign and re-construct the valve stand of an existing extruder unit located in a petrochemical facility for local partner Gasinex Projekt Ltd.
The main project goal was to design the steam distribution and cooling water system. The system had to be improved so that the plant operator could quickly identify and control particular valves used to regulate the temperature of the various zones inside the extruder.
The secondary goal was to improve the maintenance and accessibility of the valves and other controls by re-configuring the plant design.
To successfully achieve this, Proplant needed 100 percent accurate materials information for all new components to be included in the design and to be constructed and installed in the facility eventually. Four piping classes containing more than 3,000 components were quickly developed for the project using CADWorx Specification Editor.
