Process Industry Practices (PIP)
PIP creates guidelines for process plants from a collection of company engineering standards.
The Process Industry Practices (PIP) is a self-funded consortium of process industry companies that publishes common industry practices for projects and maintenance work. PIP develops “Practices” that are a compilation of company engineering standards from many engineering disciplines. While PIP is an initiative of the Construction Industry Institute, related industries such as power, pulp & paper, and pharmaceuticals find the PIP harmonization process and published practices to be of value in their industries.
The PIP Collection includes a wide range of common industry practices for the detailed design, procurement, construction, operation, and maintenance of process facilities.
Some of the PIP collections available include:
- Civil/structural/architectural (CSA)
- Piping engineering and complementary practices
- Valve descriptions
- Vessel practices
