Is this a homework question?

 

 

 

Using a very small amount of logic here, a one line diagram shows only a little detail, whereas plan, profile, section, and/or an actual detail sheet shows, well, more detail.

 

If I were a betting man, I'd say the symbol on the right is more generic, and thus should be used for a one line diagram. In most one line diagrams I've worked with, the diagram doesn't represent the pipe sizes being used, but the individual pipe segment labels often specify the size for you, hence the resultant diagram. :thumbsup:

It may also depend on the type of pump. Examples: centrifugal, air diaphragm, vacuum, gear or screw pump.

This is the real world question, I am creating one line diagram from what i saw on the field. i was going to use the pump on the right side too, but just want to make sure if the one on the left represent the same meaning, on google search it was called: "Centrifugal" not sure what that mean?. I want to show pumps with pipe line size call out and some valves. The pump has outlet and inlet.

If it's schematic then a box would even suffice as long as it's tagged/labeled properly. There's not real right or wrong way as long as some type of symbol is used that can then be referenced to the pump information in a schedule. ReMark's schematic pump is the most common and considered the industry standard.

Use one similar to that which I posted an image of previously. Don't forget to show a motor too.
