  • Drawings which represents installation standards is called hook up drawings. With hook up drawings engineer can understand how an instrument to be installed in the plant. With hook up drawing we can calculate the material requirement. Two types of hook up drawings are there.

    1. Pneumatic hookup.
    It is independent of process connection. Pneumatic hookup is basically Tubing/piping
    2. Process hookup.

    Before we used Auto-Cad for creating hook up now a days we can used SPI/INtool ( Smart plant Instrumentation) Used to create Hook Up as well as all relative documents like Instrument Index, Specification sheet, Process data, Wiring ( Convention, FF, Profibus, Modbus and HART), LOOP diagram(Smart Loop, Enhanced Smart Loop), BOM and many more .. This Blog is really helpfull more .. NICE BLOG I EVER SEEN
