1.1 This practice establishes piping system drawing symbols for marine use.
1.2 This set of standard symbols is intended for use on piping system diagrammatics and arrangements for ships.
1.3 Where graphical symbols are required for an item or equipment not covered by this practice, the form and character of the symbol will be left to the discretion of the activity concerned, provided that the symbol used does not duplicate any of those contained herein, and is clearly understandable, subject to one interpretation only, or explained by a suitable note on the drawing when necessary.
1.4 Since symbolic representation does not usually involve exact or scale layout or the actual run or leads of piping, the same symbol may be used for all projections of the system (plan, elevations, and sections).
1.5 Symbols for fluid power, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and Navy damage control diagrams are not included in this practice.
