Piping Engineering

We are redefining how things are done in industrial plant projects.

Piping Design is a critical component of engineering projects and process plants. The science of piping engineering involves developing efficient piping processes that safely transport fluids and gases across industrial plants. Optimally designed piping system can enhance the use of space, ease its construction, simplify maintenance and accessbility and improve the overall performance of piping systems.

CADE delivers full piping engineering services including:

2D / 3D Design:

Flexibility Analysis

  • Piping Flexibility analysis according to ASME B31.1/B31.3 / EN 13480
  • Supports design (type and position)
  • Buried pipes
  • Check of allowable loads on nozzles (pumps, static equipment, etc.) as per WRC-107
