Project Engineering Technical Standards And Specifications 

Engineering Design Guidelines

Typical Operating Manuals

 

KLM Technology Group has developed Engineering Design Guidelines, Project Engineering Technical Standards and Typical Operating Manuals 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 Design Guidelines and Project 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 Project Specifications.  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 and 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.
