Sponseller modeled all the mechanical utilities piping and piping supports using our client’s P&ID. Utilizing SolidWorks Premium, our engineers placed the required piping runs in and around their 3D designed structure. The utilities involved included fresh water, process water, centrate and caustic systems. The design in three dimensions enabled our engineers to visually inspect for interferences while still in the design phase enabling a clean installation of the entire structure with no unforeseen problems. Sponseller provided the pipe spool fabrication detail drawings as well.
