It is therefore recommended that wherever possible, the basic symbol should be used for a conveyor of any type.

However, if it is felt that some elaboration must be b, the following symbols are shown to demonstrate the development of the basic symbol. Description Symbol Single line convention Double line convention 6.

In order to appreciate the reasoning behind some of the alternatives it is necessary first to state the differences between the requirements of an engineering diagram and the requirements of an engineering drawing.


An engineering diagram is usually prepared in single-plane form for the purpose of showing in the simplest possible manner the principal inter-relationships of elements in a system and how the system operates. It may show in full the functioning of a circuit, a process sequence or an installation, symbolically depicting all the essential units, parts and connections to show the layout in the clearest possible manner but without regard for the physical disposition of such features.

Apart from giving such information as pipe size, linear dimensions are rarely used on engineering diagrams because they are not normally the proper vehicle for conveying information on precise physical or geographical relationships. On an engineering diagram, flow lines crossing but unconnected are represented thus, while flow lines crossing and connected are represented by or. Flow lines connected but without crossing are represented thus.

In past years alternative methods employing loops a and broken lines b have been used but on complex diagrams involving closely spaced, parallel flow lines these methods are not practicable a deprecated b deprecated A. An engineering drawing is used to show how a part is to be made, or how parts are assembled and installed relative to other equipment. The physical relationships of components and equipments and their disposition are important and therefore precise dimensions and locations are fully stated.

The installation of a heating, ventilating or refrigeration plant within a building or other structure, e. Contrary to the single-plane presentation of a diagram, a drawing is of multi-plane form and pipelines may be indicated normal to the plane of the drawing itself.

In an engineering drawing a dot on a line thus, would indicate that a pipeline rises or falls vertically from the plane of the drawing and is connected to another pipe running horizontally. Hence, it is necessary always to realize the distinct purpose of the engineering drawing and the engineering diagram and, by so doing, to avoid confusion between methods of representation which at first sight are similar but which, in their separate contexts, have very different interpretations.

Because this is an accepted drawing discipline, misunderstandings are in reality very rare and their possibility can be further reduced by the use of additional elevations on the drawing.
