Spanish to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / pipes
Spanish term or phrase:picaje
La secuencia de los picajes en la isometrica debe de ser la misma que la secuencia de los picajes en el P&ID.
Unfortunately no more context but this is a comment on an piping isometric diagram for an underground fire fighting system, and it shows some pipes with several peaks. Now I wonder whether the word "picaje" rather refers to the pipes or the peaks. Can anybody help?
If this is the case then maybe a word like rise or elevation might make more sense. In a system there could only be ONE highest points, so you could not have more than one peak. I would ask the client what is meant by picajes because it makes no sense.
The diagram shows the system of pipes, which lead up and down and also straight - so when a pipe leads up and change to a straight line that's the point in the system where the pipe has its highest point.
If I had this drawing in front of me I could probably figure it out. The sequence of the _____ on the isometric should be the same as the sequence of the _____ on the P&ID (piping and instrumentation diagram). I can't picture pipes as having peaks.
So far most of the references to picaje that I have found involve either feather plucking or embroidery. Using the word peaks here doesn't seem to make any sense either. Maybe it's a misspelled word?

refers to the peaks
Explanation: I'm native of Spanish and the expression, in that context, looks exactly like that: they're refering to the peaks of the diagram, not to the pipes. I hope this will help you in your work and good luck with the rest!
