March 11, 2017 @ 09h00 - 16h00


The ISA Montreal Section will be hosting a technical workshop that will outline and explain how to read and prepare Process Control documentation based on the ISA-5.1 (Instrumentation Symbols and Identification) standard.

The fundamental concepts and type of drawings that are covered by the standard will be outlined, explained, and prepared.

Participants will learn how to read, modify, and prepare accurate P&ID’s based on process and instrument specification.

The ISA-5.1 standard is widely used in industry to establishes a uniform means of depicting and identifying instruments or devices and their inherent functions, instrumentation systems and functions, and application software functions used for measurement, monitoring, and control, by presenting a designation system that includes identification schemes and graphic symbols.
