ISO 10628-1:2014 Diagrams for the chemical and petrochemical industry —
Part 1: Specification of diagrams
In the process industry, the use of diagrams is widespread. They are an essential tool for the analysis, design, operation and maintenance of process plant. The purpose of this standard is to provide a basis for the consistent application of diagrams in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
What is ISO 10628-1:2014
ISO 10628-1:2014 is the first part of the ISO 10628 series which provides requirements and guidance for the specification of diagrams for the chemical and petrochemical industry.
This part of ISO 10628 specifies the general rules for the content, presentation and update of process flow diagrams (PFDs), piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and utility distribution flow diagrams (UDFDs).
The main purpose of these diagrams is to document process plants and to support their operation, maintenance and modification.
What are the requirements of ISO 10628-1:2014
The standard ISO 10628-1:2014 provides requirements and guidelines for the preparation of flow diagrams for the chemical and petrochemical industry.
The standard applies to all diagrams that show processes, process units and interconnections between them. This includes block flow diagrams (BFDs), process flow diagrams (PFDs), piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and general arrangement drawings (GAs).
ISO 10628-1:2014 does not apply to process control system documentation or circuit diagrams for electrical or electronic equipment.
The standard defines the different types of information that should be included in a flow diagram, as well as the symbols and abbreviations that can be used. It also provides guidance on how to prepare and present the information in a clear and concise way.
What are the benefits of ISO 10628-1:2014
The benefits of ISO 10628-1:2014 are many and varied. This standard provides a framework for the specification of diagrams for use in the chemical and petrochemical industry, and as such, it can be used by organizations of all sizes in this sector.
Some of the key benefits of this standard include:
- It helps to ensure the consistency of diagrams across different organizations.
- It can be used to help create new diagrams or to improve existing ones.
- It can help to reduce the risk of errors in diagrams.
In addition, ISO 10628-1:2014 is easy to use and understand, and it is available in both English and French.
