How to Use Boiler Symbols

Where to get the symbols?

  1. Start Edraw, choose Industrial Automation category, and double click Utility-Generation P&ID template to start a new drawing page. This boiler symbol library will open automatically on the left of the canvas together with some other libraries.
  2. If your Edraw is already open, you can also click the library button on the top left corner, and navigate Industrial Automation-> PID Boiler.

Drag and Drop Symbols

When you successfully get the symbols, you can drag and drop required shapes onto the canvas.

Shape Scalable

No matter what size you zoom in, the shapes will remain high clarity. No blur image anymore.

Color Changeable

To make the shapes better fit with your own drawing theme, you can change the filling colors.


If you want to change the filling color for a part of a shape, first you need to select this sub shape. Click on the sub shape you want to change color for a few times until it is successfully selected (there will be a blue selection frame), then you can change this sub shape with a new color, and with other parts unchanged.

Or you can ungroup the shape first (go to Home menu, and click Ungroup button), and change the color for any sub shape freely.

Shape Separable

Every shape is an assembly of many sub shapes. You are able to separate the shape and use a component. First you have to ungroup the shape by clicking on the Ungroup button under Home tab.
