Our team of pipe design engineers and draughtspersons provide a unique combination of skills and decades of experience gathered in all sectors of industry. This extensive knowledge helps us understand the client’s requirements and deliver optimum solutions. Furthermore, we are considered competent piping designers according to the acceptance criteria of SANS 347 – Categorisation and Conformity Assessment Criteria for All Pressure Equipment.
Neda Engineering Group (Pty) Ltd utilizes AutoCAD packages to generate various related drawings including PFD’s & P&ID’s, 3D pipe models, general arrangement, detailed isometric and stress isometric.
We make use of CAESAR II software to conduct a stress analysis of piping in accordance with the various design code requirements. CAESAR II uses a complete solution that allows quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to a variety of loads that take into account weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic conditions.
In order to ensure process requirements, AFT Fathom Software is used for hydraulic analysis of the piping system. This ensures the correct sizing of piping, pumps, etc.
To determine the behavior of a piping system during a surge event Neda makes use of AFT Impulse Software to calculate the pressure surge in a liquid piping system during a transient event. This will ensure that the client operates its system with greater safety and reliability.
In addition, we also perform statutory piping inspections in accordance with API570, ASME B31G, and other recognized inspection standards.
