Proplant Redesigns Extruder Valve Stand in Record Time with CADWorx and CAESAR II


Proplant is a multi-service engineering company focusing on chemical, pharmaceutical, power, and mechanical industries. Together with a local partner, Gasinex Projekt Ltd., Proplant was contracted to redesign and re-construct the valve stand (heating and distribution system) of an existing extruder unit located in a petrochemical (plastic molding) facility.

The main project goal was to design the steam distribution and cooling water system. The system had to be improved so that the plant operator could quickly identify and control particular valves used to regulate the temperature of the various zones inside the extruder.

Proplant needed 100 percent accurate materials information for all new components to be included in the design and to be constructed and installed in the facility eventually. Four piping classes containing more than 3,000 components were quickly developed for the project using CADWorx Specification Editor.

Once specifications were available, a 3D model was created using CADWorx Plant Professional. Proplant redesigned all the pipelines to include new valves, existing relief valves, and condensate drain points, and in addition, all steel constructions and supports.

“CADWorx Plant Professional and CAESAR II are exactly what a company needs to improve project execution,” said Vladimir Cebo, owner and project manager at Proplant. “The bi-directional links between the software enable easy sharing of data between different disciplines – we’ve improved efficiency by 100 percent since implementing CADWorx and CAESAR II.”
