CommonP&IDSymbolsLegend
Piping and instrumentation diagrams, or P&IDs, are used to create important documentation for process industry facilities. The shapes in
this legend are representativ e of the functional relationship between piping, instrumentation, and sy stem equipment units. We'v e broken
them down into sev en main groups: equipment, piping, v essels, heat exchangers, pumps, instruments, and v alv es.
With Lucidchart, it's easy to access all of the featured P&ID sy mbols. Users can also import .SVGs and other image files to create a custom
P&ID library for any situation.

EQUIPMENT
Equipment is comprised of miscellaneous P&ID units that don't fit into the other categories. This group includes hardware like compressors,
conv ey ors, motors, turbines, v accuums, and other mechanical dev ices.
