The loss of a single piping system in one part of a plant may cause the shutdown of processes in the plant. It is very important that the trainee operator understands the operation and maintenance of the piping systems. The piping system includes pipes and pipe fittings to control the direction of flow and valves to control the amount of flow. A properly welded joint is as strong as the pipe itself. A welded system does not leak and needs no maintenance. This is important on high pressure systems.
A valve, on the other hand is a device installed in a piping system which controls the flow of a
gas or liquid. Valves have an opening through which gas or fluid can flow. They can close off
(isolate) the piping system to stop the flow and they can control the amount of flow.
