Process Flow Diagram

A process flow diagram (PFD) is a diagram commonly used by engineers in natural gas processing plants, petrochemical and chemical plants, and other industrial facilities, in chemical and process engineering to get the general flow of plant processes and equipment. PFDs also can be used for visitor information and new employee training.
PFD provides a visual representation of the steps in a process. A process flow diagram will consist of process piping, connections with other systems, major equipment, control values and other major values. It gives everyone a clear understanding of the process and helps to identify non-value-added operations. Generally, a PFD shows only the major equipment and doesn't show details. Therefore, you had better create your process flow diagram on your own so that it focuses on major plant processes and not show minor details.
