No attachment.

 

It usually means direct connect or flange-to-flange or the minimum nipple length or the minimum pipe possible/practical.

Hi,

 

Nothing attached...!

 

Anyway, "min" in PIDs dictates the distance at a specified pipe length/elevation....should be as minimum as possible...

Hi Shantanu,

 

MIN means minimum distance possible.

Thanks all for your replies, I think I have missed to attach the image, please find attachment now.

Could you please explain what may be the reason for such distance to be minimum? which is open ended?

Thanks, 

Shantanu.

Hi Shantanu, 

 

The answer remains the same 'MIN' stands for minimum distance.

 

It is difficult to give a reason, for specifying 'MIN' based on your snapshot P&ID.

 

Maybe you should post the whole P&ID for convenience.
