Piping Reference Data: An Overview

Piping Reference Data: An Overview


Before working with piping reference data, you must be familiar with how the software handles reference data in general. If you have not already done so, read and understand the following important concepts and procedures described in the SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide: Custom attributes Symbol creation Codelists (also referred to as "select lists") Naming rules Bulkloading For example, before you can define pipe parts, you must understand how part data relates to data on the custom interfaces sheet, and how that information relates to parameters defined when the part symbol is created.

Piping Workbooks The piping reference data is defined in multiple Microsoft Excel workbooks so that you can bulkload only what you need. The software delivers these workbooks to the [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\Datafiles and to the [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\SampleDataFiles folders. The complete list of available piping specifications is in Appendix A: Delivered Pipe Specifications, page 175. The following piping reference data workbooks are delivered in [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\Datafiles folder: Piping Specification.xls, Piping Catalog.xls, Instrument Data.xls, Piping Specialty Data.xls, Piping.xls, Ten_Specs_CatalogData.xls, and Ten_Specs_SpecificationData.xls. The following piping reference data workbooks are delivered in [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\SampleDataFiles folder: 1S6470 Catalog.xls, 1S6470 Specification.xls, Bio Pharm Catalog.xls, Bio Pharm Catalog.xls, Bolt Commodity Code Substitution.xls, Bolt Diameter Equivalence.xls, Non Radial Branches.xls, Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls, and Union Fitting Assembly Data.xls.

Piping Reference Data Guide 11

Piping Reference Data: An Overview Because bulk loading all of these specifications would create a very large catalog, a subset of ten specifications are used to create the CatalogDB.dat file that is delivered with the software. This subset of ten specifications is delivered in the Ten_Specs_SpecificationData.xls and Ten_Specs_CatalogData.xls workbooks and are list below. Specification Name 1C0031 1S3977 1S3984 2C0032 2L1670 2S3985 4C0033 5C0390 6C0391 AC0014 Materials Description CL150 RFFE, CS, Trim 8, CA 0.063, Process, hot (-20 to 800 degF) CL150 RFFE, 304/CS Valves, Trim 8 CL150 RFFE, 304/316 Valves, Trim 12 CL300 RFFE, CS, Trim 8, CA 0.063, Process, hot (-20 to 800 degF) CL300 RFFE, 1.25Cr-0.5Mo, 316 Trim, MJ, other CL300 RFFE, 304/316 Valves, Trim 12 CL600 RFFE, CS, Trim 8, CA 0.063, Process, hot (-20 to 800 degF) CL900 BE/RFFE, CS, Trim 5, (ASME-I) CL1500 BE/RJFE, CS, Trim 5, (ASME-I) CL125 FFFE, CS, Bronze Trim Fluid Service Process Lube and seal oil Process Process Catalyst lift lines Process Process Low pressure CL150 steam Low pressure CL150 steam Cooling water

The Piping.xls workbook contains four example pipe specifications (N0, N1, 1C0100, and 1C0101) that Intergraph uses for testing purposes. These four example pipe specifications are also available in the delivered CatalogDB.dat file. Catalog Task Instead of defining your piping reference data in workbooks and then bulkloading the workbooks to the Catalog, you can define your piping specification data interactively in the Catalog task. For more information on how to define and verify your piping reference data in the Catalog task, refer to the SmartPlant 3D Catalog User's Guide or the Catalog Help.

Understanding the Piping Reference Data Workflow: An Overview

Piping Reference Data Common Tasks


By following these tasks in order, you can create and customize your own piping reference data. Define Piping Specification Rules When defining your piping specification, the first step is to define the rules that apply to the entire project. Most of these rules are independent of the individual piping material classes that you will be defining later. However, there will be a few cases where you will need to come back to the piping specification rules after you have defined your piping material classes. For more information, see Piping Specifications Common Tasks, page 15. Define Piping Materials Classes A piping material class is a classification of components based on design data and service limits and is independent of nominal piping diameters and commodity items. Numerous piping material class rules define the design data and service limits. For more information, see Piping Materials Classes Common Tasks, page 17. Define Welded Connections Rules If your piping materials class uses welded connections, you need to define rules for those welded connections. For more information, see Welded Connections Common Tasks, page 20. Define Bolted Connections Rules If your piping materials class uses bolted connections, you need to define rules for those bolted connections. For more information, see Bolted Connections Common Tasks, page 21. Define Piping Symbols Almost all parts, also known as commodity items, that you will place in the model are represented by a symbol. A symbol is nothing more than a graphical representation of the part. In addition to the symbols that are delivered with the software, you can create your own custom symbols for placement in the model. For more information, see Piping Symbols Common Tasks, page 22. Define Piping Parts Parts, or commodity items, are placed in the model. In addition to the parts that are delivered with the software, you can add your own parts to the catalog for placement. Related Topics Understanding the Piping Reference Data Workflow: An Overview, page 13

Understanding the Piping Reference Data Workflow: An Overview

Piping Specifications Common Tasks


By following these tasks, you can define the general rules, or options, for your piping specification. Define Default Project Options The first step in defining a piping specification is to specify values for the main piping specification options. For more information, see Define Default Project Options, page 120. Define Fluid Densities You must define the fluid densities for all fluids for which you plan to model piping so that the software can calculate the fluid weight in the piping and fittings. For more information, see Define Fluid Densities, page 123. Define End Preparation Compatibility A useful software feature is the ability to specify which pipe and fitting endpreparations are allowed to connect to one another. For more information, see Define Mating Ports, page 127. Define NPD Equivalences Typically, you will need to model using both metric and imperial units. By defining nominal piping diameters (NPD) equivalences you can use one system of units for modeling while the parts catalog is in the other system of units and define transition components that have different units of measure at each end. For more information, see Define NPD Equivalences, page 130. Define Minimum Pipe Lengths You should define the minimum pipe length and the preferred minimum pipe length for the piping specification to prevent the piping designer, or the software, from placing unmanageably short pieces of pipe in the model. For more information, see Define Minimum Pipe Length, page 129. Define Minimum Pipe Lengths for Purchase As with the minimum pipe lengths, you should define the minimum pipe length and the preferred minimum pipe length that can be purchased. For more information, see Define Minimum Pipe Length Purchase, page 128. Define Standard Notes Define the standard notes that you plan to use. For more information, see Define Standard Notes, page 142. Define the Default Change of Direction Define the default change-of-direction boundaries for fittings. For more information, see Define Default Change of Direction, page 114. Piping Reference Data Guide 15

Understanding the Piping Reference Data Workflow: An Overview Define Materials Data Specify the materials data required for the software to calculate piping wall thickness. For more information, see Define Materials Data, page 126. Define Port Alignments Define whether a branch that connects to a sloped header is trimmed by adding more weld material or by trimming the branch end. For more information, see Define Port Alignments, page 134. Define Slip on Flange Setback Distance Specify the values needed to calculate the distance that the end of a pipe is inserted into a slip-on-flange. For more information, see Define Slip on Flange Setback Distance, page 141. Define Thickness Data Rules Specify the thickness values required for the software to calculate piping wall thickness. For more information, see Define Thickness Data Rules, page 101. Define Short Code Hierarchy Define which short codes are exposed to the piping designer under which configurations. For more information, see Define Short Code Hierarchy, page 139. Define Default Commodity Selection Rule Define which short codes should be used during the automatic placement of fittings. For more information, see Define Default Commodity Selection Rule, page 115. Related Topics Piping Reference Data Common Tasks, page 14

Pipe Specifications: An Overview

Pipe Specifications: An Overview


The purpose of a project piping specification is to limit and aid in the selection of piping parts available to a piping designer as they design piping systems. Limiting the selection of parts eliminates decisions by the designer related to applicability, cost, procurement, and safety of particular parts within particular pipeline services. Rules regarding the usage of particular types of parts in particular design situations also limit part selection. Within a particular pipeline service, decisions relating to allowed parts and requirements for the parts that may be used in that service are made in advance by the specification author. The piping specification is represented by piping materials classes, which define the requirements, characteristics, and behavior of the piping commodities for a specific service. Typically, the piping specification is specific to a project. The data required for the piping specification and the piping materials classes can be categorized as follows:

The data that defines the piping specification is the piping specification data. The business rules that apply to the piping specification are the piping specification rules. For more information, see Piping Specification Rules: An Overview, page 107. The data that defines the piping materials class is the piping materials class data. For more information, see Piping Materials Class Data Sheet, page 31. The business rules that manage the behavior of the piping commodities within this service are the piping materials class rules. For more information, see Piping Materials Class Rules: An Overview, page 58. The data that represents the rules for selecting piping commodities within the piping materials class is the piping commodity filter. For more information, see Piping Commodity Filter Sheet, page 26. The standard notes that apply to a specific piping materials class or to an individual piping commodity, piping specialty, instrument, or connection commodity in the piping specification are the piping specification notes. The data that represents the rules for selecting gaskets, bolts, nuts, and washers at bolted joints and the rules for selecting clamps at mechanical joints within the piping materials class is the connection commodity filter. For more information, see one of the following: Bolt Selection Filter Sheet, page 61 Clamp Selection Filter Sheet, page 63 Gasket Selection Filter Sheet, page 71 Nut Selection Filter Sheet, page 79 Washer Selection Filter Sheet, page 102

Pipe Specifications: An Overview

The data that is specific to the engineering office, and is used for the material control of piping commodities, is the piping commodity material control data. This data is a function of the contractor commodity code. The data that determines the Common Industry Material Identification Standards (CIMIS) size-dependent commodity code from the contractor's size-independent commodity code is the size-dependent commodity code data. This data is a function of the contractor commodity code (or the industry commodity code) and the sizes for each piping point. Note

CIMIS is a cross-industry initiative to provide common identifiers and standard descriptions for commodity materials used in maintenance, operations, construction, and OEM activities.

The data that is specific to the engineering office, and is used for the material control of valve operators, actuators, and appurtenances, is the valve operator material control data. This data is a function of the valve operator catalog part number. For more information, see Valve Operator Material Control Data Sheet, page 41 and Multiport Valve Operator Data Sheet, page 43. The piping specification data that is required for reporting loose material and provided by the vendor is the vendor-supplied loose material data. This data is a function of the contractor commodity code and optionally the size. The data that is specific to the engineering office, is specific to a class of piping specialties, and is used for the material control of those piping specialties, is the piping specialty class data. This data is a function of the piping specialty tag number, and a size range for generic piping specialties. For more information, see Piping Specialty Class Data Sheet, page 45. The data that is specific to the engineering office, is specific to a class of instruments, and is used for the material control of those instruments, is the instrument class data. This data is a function of the instrument tag number and a size range for generic instruments. For more information, see Instrument Class Data Sheet, page 51.

Pipe Specifications: An Overview

Commodity Codes: An Overview


The software uses commodity codes to select a unique piping part from the part catalog. The two types of commodity codes are contractor commodity code and industry commodity code.

The contractor commodity code is determined from the piping commodity filter of the Piping Specification on the basis of the piping materials class, the short code, and the size. The contractor commodity code can reflect variations in size or schedule, or the contractor commodity code can be independent of both size and schedule. The industry commodity code is independent of both size and schedule and is derived from the piping commodity material control data on the basis of the contractor commodity code. If the contractor commodity code reflects variations in size or schedule, it is possible to have many contractor commodity codes correlated with one industry commodity code.

The catalog data is determined from the piping commodity class data and the piping commodity part data of the Piping Catalog on the basis of the commodity code and optionally the schedule or the size. The piping specification writer can use either the contractor commodity code or an industry commodity code as the commodity code basis for the Piping Catalog. You can set which commodity code is used on the Default Project Options Sheet, page 116. Use of the contractor commodity code has the advantage of not requiring a correlation with an industry commodity code. However, use of the industry commodity code provides the ability for the client to use different contractors, yet only correlate the commodity code system of the client once.

Piping Reference Data Guide 25

Pipe Specifications: An Overview

Piping Commodity Filter Sheet


The Piping Commodity Filter sheet defines the data required to select the piping commodity and any additional data required for optional uniqueness per piping material class. Spec Name - Specify the Piping Materials Class for which the piping commodity is intended. You must define the Piping Material Class on the Piping Materials Class Data sheet before you can use it on this sheet. For more information, see Piping Materials Class Data Sheet, page 31. Short Code - Type a short code for this row. A short code is used as a grouping or designation for each component so you can select the component. The short code appears in the Type box on the Place Component ribbon. The software also uses the short code to automatically place components. Some examples of short codes that you might use are: Piping, Nipple, Gate Valve, Lift Check Valve, Tee, Weld Neck Flange, and so forth. Option Code - Type an option code. Valid entries are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Commodity Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. The option code gives the software a way of recognizing the default component when more than one component works. This code is also used when selecting a branch fitting. This option is ignored in the automated selection of flanges. First Size From - Defines the lower bound of the largest nominal piping diameter for which this piping commodity applies within the Piping Materials Class. First Size To - Defines the upper bound of the largest nominal piping diameters for which this piping commodity applies within the Piping Materials Class. First Size Units - Specifies the units for the First Size From and First Size To columns. For example, you could enter in for inches or mm for millimeters. Second Size From - Defines the lower bound of the next largest nominal piping diameter for which this piping commodity applies within the Piping Materials Class. Second Size To - Defines the upper bound of the next largest nominal piping diameters for which this piping commodity applies within the Piping Materials Class. Second Size Units - Specifies the units for the Second Size From and Second Size To columns. For example, you could enter in for inches or mm for millimeters. Multisize Option - Type a string to represent an optional piping commodity selection for multi-sized fittings when the first size and second size are inadequate. For example, if two additional sizes (2" and 1") are required in addition to a first size of 6" and a second size of 4", the string that would represent the sizes would be 6"x4"x2"x1". The software interprets the string to determine the second size, the

26 Piping Reference Data Guide

Pipe Specifications: An Overview number of sizes in addition to the first size and second size, and the units of measure for each size. If you do not include a unit of measure in the string, the unit of measure for the first size, defined in the First Size Units column, is used. Note

You can append the keywords Primary (primary size) and Secondary (secondary size) to the column headings for the nominal piping diameters at each end in the workbook for the part data to assign the size to a specific piping point instead of using the Multisize Option property. Fittings that require two sizes will be assumed to have the primary size assigned to the first piping point and the secondary size assigned to the second piping point. Multi-size fittings with three or more sizes must have the sizes assigned to the appropriate piping points by means of the multisize option property. Fittings with exactly two sizes and three or more piping points may have the size assigned to the appropriate piping point by using these keywords.

Comments - Type an optional brief description of the piping commodity item. Selection Basis - Enter the selection basis code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Selection Basis sheet in the Codelist Number column. Jacketed Piping Basis - Type a jacketed piping code to indicate whether the piping commodity is required for the core piping, the jacketed piping, or the jumper tubing. Valid entries are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Jacketed Piping Basis sheet in the Codelist Number column. This option allows the piping designer to select fittings from the same piping materials class on the basis of whether the core, the jacket, or the jumper is being modeled. Maximum Temperature - Enter the maximum temperature for which this piping commodity is intended within this piping materials class. Include the units of measure, F or C for example, when specifying this value. A maximum temperature is required for those piping commodities that are not suitable for the full range of temperature for which the piping materials class is intended. Minimum Temperature - Enter the minimum temperature for which this piping commodity is intended within this piping materials class. Include the units of measure, F or C for example, when specifying this value. A minimum temperature is required for those piping commodities that are not suitable for the full range of temperature for which the piping materials class is intended. Note

Be careful if you decide to define values for Maximum Temperature and Minimum Temperature because the user must enter a temperature for the pipe run before the software will find the commodity. An alternate,

Piping Reference Data Guide 27

Pipe Specifications: An Overview better method is to use the Service Limits sheet. For more information, see Service Limits Sheet, page 95. Engineering Tag - Type the valve tag number. Engineering tags are used for valves on P&IDs instead of longer commodity codes. A one-to-one relationship exists between the valve tag number and the commodity code. Valve tags are useful for automated annotation on orthographic and isometric drawings because the valve tag is shorter than the corresponding commodity code. Piping designers can use engineering tags to select valves in the model. Commodity Code - Type the commodity code. The commodity code is the code with which the part is identified in the market. The commodity code along with the nominal piping diameter and schedule values uniquely define the piping commodity. The commodity code can be size-dependent or size-independent. Fabrication Category Override - Type the fabrication category code. The fabrication code identifies whether the component is shop- or field-fabricated. Valid Fabrication Category codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Fabrication Type sheet in the Codelist Number column. Supply Responsibility Override - Type the supply responsibility code. The supply responsibility code identifies the party responsible for supplying the commodity. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Supply Responsibility sheet in the Codelist Number column. First Size Schedule - Type the schedule or thickness code for the first size end of this piping commodity. This column is required when the commodity code does not include a schedule. If you enter a thickness code, the units of measurement for the wall thickness can be different from the units of measurement for the nominal piping diameter. You can also use the keyword MATCH to have the piping commodity use the same schedule as the pipe for the component. If you use MATCH, the commodity code for the part First Size Schedule and Second Size Schedule columns must be set to a valid size. MATCH works only if the commodity code does not contain the schedule size. Second Size Schedule - Type the schedule or thickness code for the second size end of this piping commodity. This column is required when the commodity code does not include a schedule. If you enter a thickness code, the units of measurement for the wall thickness can be different from the units of measurement for the nominal piping diameter. You can also use the keyword MATCH to have the piping commodity use the same schedule as the pipe for the component. If you use MATCH, the commodity code for the part First Size Schedule and Second Size Schedule columns must be set to a valid size. MATCH works only if the commodity code does not contain the schedule size.

28 Piping Reference Data Guide

Pipe Specifications: An Overview Reportable Commodity Code - Type a commodity code for the object to create when the piping designer places a primary commodity code item. For example, you might want a paddle spacer reported for each instance of a paddle blind placed in the model. In this case, the paddle spacer is reported, but not graphically placed in the model. Quantity of Reportable Parts - Type an integer value that represents the quantity of objects to be reported per instance of the piping commodity. Typically, this value is one, but the value may be greater than one. Associated Commodity Code - Type a commodity code for the object to place when the piping designer places a primary commodity code item. For example, the primary commodity code item is a valve that always requires a spacer, and the spacer is actually supplied with the valve. Hence, the valve must be ordered but the spacer does not. However, the spacer must be modeled because it is a part of the pipeline with the valve. Bend Radius Multiplier - Type an optional NPD multiplier that you want to use to define the bend radius. This value is required only for pipe bends. The bend radius for elbows is defined in the Piping Commodity Class Data. If you define a value in this column, do not define a value in the Bend Radius column. Bend Radius - Type an optional allowable bend radius as an absolute value. If you define a value in this column, do not define a value in the Bend Radius Multiplier column. This value is required only for pipe bends. Number Of Miter Cuts - Type the number of miter cuts required for a mitered elbow. This value must be a positive integer. This value is required only for mitered elbows. This box is optional in that you can specify the number of miters during placement. First Size UOM Basis In Catalog - Enter the units of measure basis code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Catalog Units of Measure Basis sheet in the Codelist Number column. Second Size UOM Basis In Catalog - Enter the units of measure basis code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Catalog Units of Measure Basis sheet in the Codelist Number column. PDS Modifier - Specify an optional decimal value and is required only for the following data, if variation in that data is not reflected in the commodity code. By definition, this property should not be used, unless required.

For nipples, the piping commodity class data typically includes the nipple length. However, if this is not the case, the piping specification writer should use this column to specify the length.

Piping Reference Data Guide 29

Pipe Specifications: An Overview

For plain piping and tubing, the piping commodity class data typically includes the purchase length. However, if this is not the case, the piping specification writer should use this column to specify the length. For orifice flanges, the piping commodity class data typically includes the orientation of the taps, if the orifice flange has two taps. The specification writer has a requirement to specify whether the two taps are oriented 180 degrees apart on the outside diameter of the flange or 90 degrees apart. The more common situation is that the taps are oriented 180 degrees apart, where a tap is located along both the positive and negative local vertical axis. When the two taps are being oriented 90 degrees apart, a tap should be oriented 45 degrees on each side of the local positive vertical axis for the orifice flange. The commodity code is assumed to vary with tap orientation. However, if this is not the case, the piping specification writer should use this column.

Preferred Pipe Length - Specify the preferred pipe length for plain piping. This allows the specification writer to define the company preference for either design or procurement considerations. Piping Note 1 - Specify the standard notes that you want to associate with the commodity. Standard notes are defined on the Standard Notes Data sheet. Alt Reportable Commodity Code - Specify the contractor commodity code for an alternate reportable piping commodity that is to be created with the primary piping commodity on the basis of the piping materials class. In an isometric drawing, only the primary piping commodity is depicted graphically. The materials list includes the short description of both the primary piping commodity and the reportable piping commodity. The data for the reportable piping commodity includes a commodity code and the corresponding short and long material descriptions, plus the typical data that is reported for any other piping commodity. Quantity of Alt Reportable Parts - Enter the number of alternate reportable piping commodities to be reported per instance of the piping commodity. If you have defined a commodity code in the Alt Reportable Commodity Code column but do not define a value in this column, the software uses a default value of one.

There are several workbooks; Piping Specification.xls and Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls for example; that define the piping rules in the software. Rules control how you want the software to behave during certain circumstances. You should review and customize, as needed, all delivered rules based on what makes sense for your company. There are three general categories for rules:

Piping Materials Class Rules - These rules apply to specific material classes. Different rules can be defined for each material class. Piping Specification Rules - These rules apply to all the material classes across the project. Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules - These rules apply to checking pipe bends for manufacturability.

Pipe Specifications: An Overview Nut Creation Option - Specifies whether you want nuts automatically created at bolted joints. Disable this option when nuts are not tracked by material management. You must enable this option if you plan to use the nut height in calculating the bolt length. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Nut Creation Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Note

You can create nuts in the model but not have them reported by setting the Reportable Commodity Code option on the Piping Commodity Matl Control Data sheet for the nut.

Washer Creation Option - Specifies whether you want washers automatically created at bolted joints. Disable this option when washers are not tracked by material management. You must enable this option if you plan to use the washer thickness in calculating the bolt length. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Washer Creation Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Note

You can create washers in the model but not have them reported by setting the Reportable Commodity Code option on the Piping Commodity Matl Control Data sheet for the washer.

Piping Commodity Override Option - Specifies whether piping designers can override the piping specification by selecting a piping commodity directly from the piping catalog. This option is the default setting for all piping material classes that you define. You can override this setting for an individual piping material class by using the Piping Commodity Override Option setting on the Piping Material Class Data sheet for that piping material class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Piping Commodity Override Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Pipe Bend Radius Multiplier Option - Specifies how the absolute bend radius value is obtained. You can specify that it is the product of the nominal piping diameter (or optionally the outside diameter) times the pipe bend radius multiplier, or is a rule based on the nominal piping diameter and the pipe bend radius multiplier as defined on the Pipe Bend Radii Sheet, page 84. For more information, see Piping Commodity Filter Sheet, page 26. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Pipe Bend Radius Multiplier Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Minimum Plate Flange Thickness - Enter the minimum plate flange thickness that requires an extra weld at the face of flange. Density of Water - Enter the density of water.

The ability may be needed to allow the piping designer to route pipe around the circumference of a tank such that the pipe remains a constant distance from the Piping Reference Data Guide 117

Pipe Specifications: An Overview surface of the tank. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Pipe Bend Radius By User Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Bolt Length Calculation Option - Enables or disables the calculation of bolt lengths. If disabled, bolts are procured on the basis of the flange quantity, the nominal piping diameter, and the pressure rating, where the bolt lengths have been defined in a specification. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Bolt Length Calculation Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. Non-Radial Tangent Branch Outside Diameter Multiplier - Type the multiplier for the piping header outside diameter to be used to determine the protrusion of the branch pipe into the header pipe when the non-radial branch is tangential with respect to the header pipe. Typically, the protrusion of the branch into the header is 0.5 x the header outside diameter for a tangential, non-radial branch. Non-Radial Offset Branch Outside Diameter Multiplier - Type the multiplier for the piping header outside diameter to be used to determine the protrusion of the branch pipe into the header pipe when the non-radial branch is offset from the header centerline, but not tangential. Typically, the protrusion of the branch into the header is 0.375 x the header outside diameter for an offset, non-radial branch. Piping Commodity Catalog Part No Basis Option - Enter the code to use. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Piping Cmdty Ctlg Part No Basis Opt sheet in the Codelist Number column. This option allows you to enable the use of the size-dependent commodity code as the piping commodity catalog part number in lieu of concatenating the piping commodity catalog part number from the industry commodity code and the nominal piping diameter for each of the piping points. If you have a size-dependent commodity numbering system such that the size is already appended as a prefix or suffix to the commodity code base, then you may prefer to use the commodity code base and size ranges in the piping specification, but use the size-dependent commodity code in the piping catalog. Note that the sizedependent contractor commodity code from the piping commodity filter must be the same as the size-dependent contractor commodity code from the piping commodity material control data. Piping Commodity Procurement Data Option - Specifies whether the contractor commodity code or the industry commodity code is to be used to query the piping commodity procurement data:

Not applicable (5) Determine procurement data based on contractor commodity code (10) Determine procurement data based on industry commodity code (15)

If you do not specify a value, the not applicable option is used by default. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Piping Cmdty Procurement Data Opt sheet in the Codelist Number column. 118 Piping Reference Data Guide

Pipe Specifications: An Overview Bolt Diameter Equivalence Option - Specifies whether the bolt diameter equivalence rule for reporting the bolt diameter is enabled (10) or disabled (5). If you do not specify a value, the default is to disable the rule. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Bolt Diameter Equivalence Option sheet in the Codelist Number column. For example, enable this option when you are required to use ASME fittings in a metric model, but also use real metric bolts. The actual bolt equivalence values are defined in the Bolt Diameter Equivalence.xls workbook on the Bolt Diameter Equivalence Rule sheet. For more information, see Bolt Diameter Equivalence Rule Sheet, page 108. Gasket Selection for Mismatched Bolted Ends - Specifies how the software selects gaskets for joints formed by different bolted ends (different pressure rating, end preparation, or end standard) but that are based on equivalent drilling templates. Enter a codelist value 5 to select the gasket based on the nominal piping diameter, pressure rating, end preparation, and end standard of both bolted ends. This provides the flexibility to specify the gasket to be used when the default gasket normally used with one of the bolted ends differs from the default gasket normally used for the other bolted end. In this situation, an error is reported if the gasket has only been defined in the gasket selection filter on the basis of one of the two bolted ends. Enter a codelist value 10 to arbitrarily select the gasket based on only one of the two bolted ends when you have not defined the gasket on the basis of both bolted ends. If you choose this option, you assume responsibility that the gasket selected is acceptable. This approach reduces the number of required gasket records for a piping materials class with a number of unique, but compatible, bolted ends, where the piping engineer's intent is to reduce the material handling costs by reducing the number of gaskets maintained in inventory. Note that, if you do specify a gasket based on both of the applicable bolted ends, the correct gasket is selected rather than another gasket based on an arbitrary bolted end. This is the default setting. Undefined Service Limits Rule Option - Specifies if the absence of any temperature-pressure data is to be reported as an error, which must be corrected by the piping designer; or is reported as a warning, which can be ignored by the piping designer. This option only applies to a piping materials class where the optional Service Limits rule has been specified. For more information, see Service Limits Sheet, page 95. This option does not apply to the selection of a piping commodity from the piping commodity filter on the basis of the maximum (or minimum) temperature. Nor does is apply to the use of the piping commodity service limits data.

Enter a codelist value of 5 for the absence of any temperature-pressure data to be reported as an error (the default setting). Enter a codelist value of 10 for the absence of any temperature-pressure data to be reported as a warning.

NPD Equivalence Sheet


The NPD Equivalence sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook defines equivalent nominal piping diameter (NPD) values in two systems of units. The NPD equivalence rules allow piping designers to use multiple systems of units for nominal pipe diameter within a piping materials class. For example, NPD equivalence rules allow piping designers to do the following:

Use a system of units even if the catalog data is defined using other units. Use two system of units in the same model, piping materials class, and even in the same line. Define transition components that have different units of measure at each end.

The software uses these rules to determine equivalent NPDs for querying the piping specification. However, the NPD equivalence rules are not used in the Piping Catalog. NPD in Primary Units of Measure - Type a valid nominal pipe diameter for the piping specification in the primary system of units. Primary Units of Measure - Specify the units for the nominal pipe diameter value that you entered in the NPD in Primary Units of Measure column. For example, type mm or in.

Appendix A: Delivered Pipe Specifications

Appendix A: Delivered Pipe Specifications


The piping reference data is defined in multiple Microsoft Excel workbooks. The software delivers these workbooks to the [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\Datafiles and the [Product Directory]\CatalogData\Bulkload\SampleDataFiles folders. This appendix lists all of the piping specifications defined in these workbooks. A majority of the all specifications are delivered in Piping Specification.xls and the corresponding parts are delivered in Piping Catalog.xls. Because bulk loading all of these specifications would create a very large catalog, a subset of ten specifications are used to create the CatalogDB.dat file that is delivered with the software. This subset of ten specifications are delivered in the Ten_Specs_SpecificationData.xls and Ten_Specs_CatalogData.xls workbooks and are marked in the table with an asterisk (*).
