APPENDIX A

General Conventions

Unless otherwise indicated in this document, values for "specific" and "generic" parameters
will be stored in tables whose names are derived from parameters in the Piping Job
Specification.
Table names often use the character "_".
Any number of comments may be included in a table, using the convention described below:
Blank lines are allowed without limits. No special character is required to define their
presence.
Any number of lines with comments may be included. Each comment line must be
preceded by an "!". Comments are disregarded by the system.
The following comments are specific to the Piping Job Specification Table, to the Piping
Commodities Table and to the Taps Table:
Columns in the table may be separated by either single or double spaces. The following
comments apply:
If single spacing is preferred, a line with the following format is required:
Single_Spacing
Entries in the columns must be made without blank spaces.
If double spacing is preferred, a line with the following format is required:
Double_Spacing
Entries in the columns may have up to one blank space in them.
A sequence line will define the contents of each column in the table. This will be done by
identifying the attribute number from the applicable entity and DDL covered by each column.
Attributes that are not included in the table will be defined by preceding them with an "*". An
example is:
Sequence= 1 2 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 *3 *4
The spacing between the entries in the above order statement must be either single or double
depending upon whether the single or double format applies to the table. This includes the
space between "=" and the first number in the statement.
Units will be defined for each column of a table as the applicable of the codes shown below.
The indicated upper/lower case convention should be respected.

All entries in the tables will be left justified.
Field locations and field lengths defined with XXXXs, WWWWs and ZZZZZs in this document
will be observed.
Fractions will not be used in defining any table value. They will be expressed in their decimal
equivalents.
Adjacent columns in a table will be separated by one or more spaces.
If a value in a table is not known, a "-" must be used in the corresponding field. The system
will interpret this entry to represent a blank value and such will be displayed in reports,
drawings and other such formal data outputs to the User. The dash shall not be enclosed in
quote marks, even if the field is for an alphanumeric value.
Real numbers without decimals may be expressed with or without a decimal point. For
example, a nominal diameter of twenty inches may be expressed as "20", or "20." or "20.0".
For the sake of consistency, all tables will show the value as "20".
All alphanumeric values in a table must be enclosed in single quotes; for example, 'ZZZZZZZ'.

Plant Design System (PDS) Piping Component Data

General Conventions

For tables with only one input column, the generic value ET_AL may be used in the input
column. The system will understand such entry to indicate that values in the line just prior to
that for ET_AL will apply to any input value equal to or greater than the value in that line.
The following conventions will apply to the definition of columns in a table with a table format
other than P8*, P9*, I8* or I9*, where * refers to any applicable alphanumeric character:
A definition must be made using the format described below regarding the number of
input and output columns involved:
No Inputs X No Outputs X
The number of input columns must not exceed 2. The number of output columns must
not exceed 9; it may be 0.
A definition must be made using the format described below regarding the units of
measure used in each column.
Units= NPD IN, SF, LB, INT, DEC, IN, RAT, IN, IN, IN
The following conventions will apply to the definition of data in a table with table format P8*,
P9*, I8* or I9*:
A definition does not need to be made regarding the number of input and output columns
involved. The number of input fields must not exceed 2. The number of output fields is
up to parameter P34 for component data and up to parameter Y27 for actuator data. A
blank line following a component will signify that the definition of the component has been
completed and that a new component will follow. The word "END" following a
component will signify the end to the table.
Each parameter in these tables must have the applicable units of measure defined, using
the format "Pii-Z" or "Yii-Z", where:
-A=AN*20
-D=AN*1
-E=INT
-G=NPD IN
-H=NPD MM
-J=SF
-L=LB
-N=IN
-P=DEG
The following conventions apply to the attribute "rating" with respect to the naming of data
tables:
The Piping Job Specification may express alphanumeric ratings in at least the following
formats: CLXXXX, XXXX# or OTXXXX. The entry in the table and the file names
representing the attribute "rating", however, will exclude characters such as "CL", "#" and
"OT" so that the same table may be used regardless of how rating was defined in the
Piping Job Specification. The above rating formats have been used in accordance with
the following criteria:
CLXXXX to refer to an ANSI or API pressure rating.
XXXX# to refer to a pressure rating defined by an organization other ANSI or API.
OTXXXX to refer to the rating of a connect point that meets the applicable ANSI or
API rating geometrically but not from a pressure carrying standpoint. An example of
the above is a valve supplied with flanged ends meeting the bolting pattern of ANSI
CL150 pressure rating but having pressure carrying characteristics different from
those of that ANSI rating.
Female ends for plastic pipe are usually defined in terms of "schedule/thickness" and not
in terms of "rating" as is common with female ends for most other components. To make

Plant Design System (PDS) Piping Component Data

27

General Conventions

28

female ends for plastic pipe follow the rules for other female ends, the applicable
"schedule/thickness" will be used as the value for "rating" for these components. If such
rating values consist of alphanumeric characters (including dashes), the system will
"strip" all such characters from the rating value in the Piping Job Specification and will
only use the numeric values in accessing the applicable tables. If such rating values
include decimal points, the decimal points will be converted to the character "$" in
accessing the applicable tables.
If the rating in the Piping Job Specification is expressed in terms of alphabetic characters
only, the system will use all such characters in accessing the data tables. The names of
the data tables will include all the alphabetic characters included in the Piping Job
Specification.
Another acceptable value for rating is "GRAVHD". This value may be used in the
Piping Job Specification and in the data tables for components rated to sustain a
nominal fluid head.
Another acceptable value for rating is "OTHER".
One acceptable value for rating is "NONE". This value may be used in the Piping Job
Specification and in the data tables for components whose ends would normally
require the use of the attribute rating as part of the table name but that for some
specific reason, a rating does not apply.
The schedule/thickness of piping components may be determined either by
look-up/calculation from a piping materials class or based on a value provided by the User
independent of the piping materials class. Comments in this paragraph define the latter
approach. The value of the override schedule/thickness attribute of each piping segment
may be either:
Left blank if the User wishes schedule/thickness to be determined from the applicable
piping materials class; or
Defined by the User entering a schedule/thickness value; or
Defined by data transfer from the P&ID Task. A value from the P&ID Task will only be
transferred to this attribute if the piping thickness flag in the P&ID segment has a value "
U"; in such case, the value from the P&ID segment schedule/thickness will be transferred
to the Piping Task override schedule/thickness. Otherwise, the value of the override
schedule/thickness in the Piping Task will be left blank
If the Piping Task software finds a non-blank value for the override schedule/thickness,
such value will be applied to all the components that belong to the segment. Such
definition will be respected during reconstruction of the piping system.
Schedule or thickness values will be shown for all components for which such values make
sense. In order of preference, schedule and thickness will be expressed in terms of:
Generic schedules, such as S-STD, S-XS and S-XXS.
Specific schedules, such as S-40, S-60 and S-80.
Thickness class, such as CL50 and CL51. For this situation, both the alpha and numeric
characters must be included in the "Sc/Th" column of the piping materials class and in the
corresponding table names.
"NREQD": This value is to be used in cases where all of the following conditions apply:
+ The thickness value is not required in purchasing the component.
+ Empty weights are not significantly affected by actual thickness values.
+ Either stress analysis is not applicable or, if applicable, the component is to be
considered infinitely rigid in stress analysis calculations.

Plant Design System (PDS) Piping Component Data

General Conventions

Specific wall thicknesses: To insure compatibility between data tables, the Piping Job
Specification and wall thickness calculations, thickness will be expressed as defined
below.
+ .XXXX if the thickness is less than 1 inch
+ X if the thickness is an even inch
+ X.XXX if the thickness is 1 inch or thicker
Trailing zeroes will not be included. Decimal points will not be included for numbers
without decimals. Examples of these rules follow: + .25 + .5 + 1 + 1.375 + 2.375
Where the schedule name exceeds the field length provided, for example S-SDR13.5, it
will be defined in terms of its wall thickness.
*XYYY: The need to perform a thickness calculation will be triggered by an entry with the
format "*XYYY" being present in the "Sc/Th" column of the Piping Commodities Table.
The letters that make this code have the following meaning:
The character "X" is an alphanumeric code that defines the equation to use in the
calculation. Possible values and their definitions are as follows: If the value for this
character is "C", the schedule/thickness for the applicable end of the component is to
be determined by calculations using the thickness equation defined for the piping
materials class in the "Thck Eqtn" column of the Define Piping Job Specification table.
The characters "YYY" define the casting, joint or structural grade quality factor (E)
times 100. This factor is one of the parameters used in the thickness calculation.
The User should be cautioned that if he is defining a calculation to be performed on a
seamless fitting (E=1) but wishes to match the thickness for the mating welded pipe
(E=0.85), the quality factor for the pipe should be entered here.
MATCH: The need to match the thickness of a component to that of the pipe of the same
diameter and of option 1 will be triggered by an entry with the format "MATCH" being
present in the "Sc/Th" column of the Piping Commodities Table.

General Conventions

To minimize duplication when the same thickness can be expressed for metallic materials in
terms of either a generic or a specific schedule, the convention defined below will be used.
For a given nominal diameter, only the schedules shown in the line for that diameter will be
used in the Piping Job Specification and in the data tables.

The table shown below will be used to correlate English nominal pipe diameters with their
corresponding metric values.

Weight tables have been provided for components required by the piping materials classes for
at least the combinations of thickness shown in the applicable Thicknesses Tables.
Where a "." or a "-" is included in a parameter that is part of a table name, a "$" will be used to
represent them in both the table name and the ASCII file name. The actual character, and

not the "$", will be displayed in all fields representing the actual attribute involved. Examples of
how thicknesses would be represented on the basis of the above rule follow:
.25 .........................................$25
.5 ..........................................$5
1 ...........................................1
1.375 .......................................1$375
2.375 .......................................2$375

Some tables require an "END" statement as their last line; others do not. Refer to specific
table formats in this document for actual requirements.
Revision management of Piping RDB data follows the conventions described below:
The applicable control document is updated.
The "Rev" and "Date" fields of the table that is changed are revised as appropriate.
The line in the table that was either newly created or revised is identified by having the
symbol ">" precede it. If the line was deleted, a ">" is placed above and below the line
deleted.
When a table is revised again, all previous revision marks are deleted.

Bolted

This is the outside diameter of a bolted end of the indicated


termination type, rating and nominal diameter, as defined in the
table named "BLT_Term_Rat_TS".

Male

This is the outside diameter of a male end of the indicated


termination type and nominal diameter, as defined in the table
named "MAL_Term_TS".

Female

The is the outside diameter of the female end of the component of


the indicated termination type, rating and nominal diameter, as
defined in the table named "FEM_Term_Rat_TS". For model
graphic purposes, it is desirable to have the value of this
parameter be larger than the value of the matching male
termination end. Components such as 90 degree elbows and tees
will not place, however, if the value of this parameter is made too
large. For this reason we have defined values for this parameter as
follows:

For PVC and CPVC female ends: same as the value of "P" for
the corresponding male termination type.

For all other female ends: 30% of the fitting OD at the female
end plus 70% of the matching pipe OD.

Bolted

This is the flange thickness, as defined in the table named


"BLT_Term_Rat_TS". This dimension represents the distance
from the outermost face of the flange to the back surface of the
flange on which the nut rests. It includes any projections that the
flange may have; for example, the raised face. For lapflanged
ends, it does not include the thickness of the pipe or stub end since
such is determined by the software at stud length calculation time;
it only includes the thickness of the loose flange used. This
parameter is primarily used for the calculation of stud length. When
dealing with specialty components, such as relief valves, and if the
User wanted to be precise about this parameter, he might have to
develop many generic tables. A practical alternative might be to
create a table in which values for this parameter would be large
enough to insure that short studs would not result.

Values for W_0 and W_1 were developed on the following
basis:

If data was available in the applicable industry standard


defining the desired stud and/or machine bolt lengths, values
for W_0 and W_1 were calculated using the criteria in Annex F
of ANSI-B16.5-1981. If the values so calculated resulted in too
short a length, however, they were increased to result in the
desired length. Such increase was mostly required when
tables with name format "STUD_Rat_TS" applied. For tables
with name format "STUD_Term_Rat_TS", such increase was
not required.

If data was not available in the applicable industry standard


defining the desired stud lengths, values for W_0 were

Basic Information
AABBCC Codes and Model Codes
The AABBCC code is the primary access key to the commodity items in the Piping Job
Specification. An AABBCC code is a generic code about which a more detailed definition is made
in the Piping Job Specification.
These detailed definitions are identified by a model code in the Commodity Item data table of the
PJS. Each model code is classified by:
AABBCC code
option
size ranges
end preparations
ratings
The model code includes the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model. Depending upon the circumstances:
One or more model codes can be assigned to one AABBCC code
The same model code can be assigned to different AABBCC codes.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. The following conventions regarding the sequence of data in the Piping Job
Specification and the naming of the Interactive Data Tables are used to coordinate the two sets of
data:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If a component has ends with different nominal diameters (regardless of other end properties),
the larger nominal diameter end(s) is defined as the green connect point.
If a component has ends with the same nominal diameter but other end properties that differ,
the following rules apply:
If the ends have different termination type, regardless of the values for
schedule/thickness, the end(s) whose end preparations have the lowest codelist number
are designated as the green connect point.

The AABBCC code for piping and tubing consists of the words PIPING and TUBING, respectively.
The Pipe Model Entity will apply to this class of piping components.

The following comments apply to the above definition of piping:
No EDEN parametric code definition is required for its placement.
Both ends of the pipe have the same end preparation. It will be possible to "break" this
type of pipe after placement for insertion of another component.
The pipe length is determined at placement either by keying in the actual length or by
stringing the pipe between two existing components. The system will refuse to place
portions of piping, which are shorter that the "min length" value defined in table
PIPE_LENGTH. The system will return a warning if the User places a section of piping
which is shorter than the "preferred length" value defined in table PIPE_LENGTH.

The following comments apply to the above definition of piping:
No EDEN parametric code definition is required for its placement.
Both ends of the pipe have different end preparation. Pipe placement must always start at
a fitting. The end preparation of the fitting will determine the end preparation of the pipe
which will be placed first. When pipe placement is completed, the end preparation of the
last end of the pipe will be checked for compatibility with that of the corresponding fitting
end, if one applies. If an incompatibility is detected with such fitting end, an error will be
returned by the system.
The pipe length is determined at placement either by key-in of actual length or by stringing
the pipe between two pre-existing components. The system will refuse to place portions
of piping, which are shorter that the "min length" value defined in table PIPE_LENGTH.
The system will return a warning if the user places a section of piping which is shorter than
the "preferred length" value defined in table PIPE_LENGTH.
Placement of taps is neither required nor possible.
Purchased Length Pipe
Purchased length pipe has its length defined in the pds_sort_code attribute of the Piping
Commodity Specification Data Table of the Material Reference Database. Purchased
length pipe, can be placed or extended such that the remainder length of the last pipe does
not exceed the pipe length threshold, as specified in the active Pipe Length Threshold Table.
The following considerations apply to the length of this type of pipe:
During manual component placement, the system will place, starting at the active
placement point, one length of pipe of the default length. If the available length is less than
the default length, a pipe will be placed to fit the available length. By choosing the
starting point for placement, the user will have control as to where the random length of
pipe is placed.
During automatic component placement, the system will start placing pipe of the default
length from whichever end applies and will continue doing so until the available length for
placement is less than the default length. An additional pipe will then be placed to fit the
remaining length. In this method of placement, the user has no control as to where the
random length of pipe is placed.
The system will refuse to place any portion of piping, which are shorter that the "min
length" value defined in table PIPE_LENGTH. The system will return a warning if the

The following comments apply to the above definition of piping:
In the Piping Materials Class, the entry for model code will be preceded by an asterisk (*)
to signify to the software that piping with an EDEN parametric code definition is involved.
This asterisk is not part of the model code name itself and such will be recognized by data
check reports executed by PDS. The ends of the piping will be drawn per the following
convention:
Bolted ends will be represented per standard PDS practice using dimensions from the
applicable generic tables.
Female ends will be represented as a cone of the following dimensions:
The large end with dimensions from the applicable female generic tables.
An included cone of angle of 90 degrees.
A cone length determined by the above criteria in conjunction with the termination
type at the other end of the pipe.
Both ends of the pipe have different end preparation. Pipe placement must always start at
a fitting. The end preparation of the fitting will determine the end preparation of the pipe
which will be placed first. When pipe placement is completed, the end preparation of the
last end of the pipe will be checked for compatibility with that of the corresponding fitting
end, if one applies. If an incompatibility is detected with such fitting end, an error will be
returned by the system. It will not be possible to "break" this type of pipe after placement
for insertion of another component; if such action was required, deletion and replacement
of the pipe will be necessary.
The following considerations apply to the length of this type of pipe:
The model code (MC) for parametric pipe will consist of the letter "P" followed by an
integer that will define its default length. This length will be the "CP to CP" length,
rather than the "face to face" length. It will have as units of measure those that apply
to pipe length in the project.
During manual component placement, the system will place, starting at the active
placement point, one length of pipe of the default length. If the available length is
less than the default length, a pipe will be placed to fit the available length. By
choosing the starting point for placement, the user will have control as to where the
random length of pipe is placed.
During automatic component placement, the system will start placing pipe of the
default length from whichever end applies and will continue doing so until the
available length for placement is less than the default length. An additional pipe will
then be placed to fit the remaining length. In this method of placement, the user has
no control as to where the random length of pipe is placed.

During reconstruction, the system will replace default and non-default pipe lengths in
kind. If the new default length differs from the original default length, however, the
procedure define above for automatic component placement will be used.
The system will refuse to place any portion of piping, which are shorter that the "min
length" value defined in table PIPE_LENGTH. The system will return a warning if the
user places a section of piping which is shorter than the "preferred length" value
defined in table PIPE_LENGTH.
Placement of taps is required.

The following comments apply to the above definition of tubing:
No EDEN parametric code definition is required for its placement.
Both ends of the pipe have the same end preparation. It will be possible to "break" this
type of pipe after placement for insertion of another component.
The pipe length is determined at placement either by key-in of actual length or by stringing

6Q1C76, Vent-drain valve (in-line)


Vent/drain valves are defined as those valves which are
intended for the venting or draining of piping and/or
instruments. They may be, but most often are not used, in
the venting or draining of equipment. They often have end
preparations which differ from those of the regular in-line
valves in the piping materials class. They may be of any of
the types described elsewhere in this section. They are
chosen from a piping materials class.

6Q1C80, Instrument root valve (in-line)


Instrument root valves are defined as those 2-way valves
which are used to isolate off-line instruments (P&ID
definition) from the equipment or piping to which they are
connected. A piping materials class should include
instrument root valves for all instrument detail situations
requiring isolation, including consideration that the
instrument may be connected to a nozzle, to a pipe fitting
or to a plain section of piping. In defining instrument
root valves in a piping materials class, the need for
coordination with instrument root valves that have been
"implied" as part of P&ID instrument components must be
carefully considered.
Any of the model codes for 2-way valves may be used under
this AABBCC code.

The following comments apply to the above items:
o The "rating" for the RCP, if applicable, is the same
as for the flange itself, regardless of the CP preparation
involved. A value is provided in the "rating" field
to minimize the number of weight tables required to define
these components.
o For flanges placed together with stub-ends, the flange
is defined in the piping materials class as the
primary component. The stub-end is defined as its
implied component, using the "*" prefix method.
o Prior to the automatic placement of flanges, all
user-placed components that have flanged ends must be
placed in the model. During automatic placement of
flanges, the system will determine whether the flange
being placed shares the CP preparation, CP rating and
table suffix of its previously placed mate. If it does,
the flange being placed is accepted; if it does not,
the system will search for the next occurrence of the
AABBCC code. The checking process is repeated until
a match is found. If a match is not found, error message
GMXXX is returned.
o During automatic component placement, the piping software
will refuse to attach slip-on or lap-joint flanges without
stub-ends to any kind of fitting. Only attachment of a
slip-on or lap-joint flange to a plain section of pipe
is allowed. For piping materials classes with
slip-on or lap-joint flanges, two flanges are defined:
a first one that will lead to a slip-on or lap-joint
flange; a second one that will lead to an acceptable
flange type for attachment to a fitting. If during
automatic component placement, the system refuses to
attach the first flange selected because of the above
criteria, a new search is made in the piping
materials class for the second flange.

The following comments apply to the above items:
o The tap connect point is placed a distance of one-half
the flange thickness from the face of the flange. This
distance may not be dimensionally correct per the industry
standards. The user must modify the Eden if exact
coordinates are required for tap locations.
o The "rating" for the RCP, if applicable, is the same
as for the flange itself, regardless of the CP preparation
involved. A value is provided in the "rating" field
to minimize the number of weight tables required to define
these components.
o The number of taps for orifice flanges, "1" or "2", will
be defined in the "Mod" column of the Piping Job
Specification. Only these values are acceptable.
o The "rating" for the taps is derived from the entry
in the applicable Taps Table with an option code of "1"
and having the tap size implied in the orifice flange
being placed.

The radius of the pipe bend is defined in the "Mod"
column of the Piping Job Specification in terms of the
nominal diameter.
Dimension tables with TNF=P11A are required for all pipe
bends, regardless of their model code. In these tables, a
"-" is shown for the surface area and water weight
parameters since they are calculated by the software
using the information available for plain piping. For pipe
bends with model code PIPB, values are provided for
table parameters "P1" and "P2" to define the lengths of the
straight sections involved. For pipe bends with model code
PIPB2, dashes are provided for table parameters "P1" and
"P2" since no straight sections are involved. The use of
tables with TNF=51 will not be required for pipe bends since
their empty weights are calculated by the software
using the information available for plain piping.

The following comments apply to all reinforcing pads:
o Reinforcing pads are defined in the piping materials
classes to have an actual value for fabrication category,
which may be changed after placement. In the isometric
drawings, a note will not be placed in the graphic part
of the drawing to show their size. A short description
has been prepared for reinforcing pads and is displayed

o Reinforcing pads may be placed with either single or
double curvature, for example reinforcing a pipe or a head
respectively.
o The angle of intersection between the header and the
branch is part of the table name containing
dimensional parameters for the component. This angle will
be derived by the system from data in the design file.
Four different types of intersection is recognized:
- Intersections at angles equal to or greater than 20 but
less than 45 degrees: the number "2045" is used as
part of the table name.
- Intersections at 45 degrees: the number "45" is
used as part of the table name.
- Intersections at angles greater than 45 but lesser than
90 degrees: the number "4590" is used as part of
the table name.
- Intersections at 90 degrees: the number "90" is
used as part of the table name.
o Two possibilities exist regarding dimensions for a
reinforcing pad:
- If a "0" is entered in the "MOD" column of the Piping
Job Specification, dimensions are to be derived from
either a data table and/or from branch calculations.
For the case where no branch calculation is involved,
both the pad width and pad thickness are included in
the applicable dimension table. If a branch calculation
is involved, a value is provided in the dimension
table for pad width and either a "-" or value for pad
thickness. See section titled "Choosing a Branch

Gaskets are handled as follows:
At a bolted joint, bolted ends may be either thru-bolted or non-thru-bolted. Requirements
defined below apply to both thru-bolted and non-thru-bolted ends unless specifically indicated
otherwise.
A gasket entry is required for every combination of diameter, preparation, rating and table
suffix of nozzles, commodity components and/or specialty components to which the piping
materials class applies. For example, to account for a bolted joint including an orifice flange
and an orifice plate, two gasket entries must be defined: one with TS=29 for the orifice flange
end and the other one with TS-5 for the orifice plate end.
The definition of each gasket entry in the piping materials class will include values for each of
the parameters listed below.
AABBCC code: the value 6Q3C95 will always apply.
Option:: the value "1" will apply unless a different option value is defined as an override as
part of the placement of the commodity or specialty component for which the gasket is
intended.
GCP from-to: these entries will define the ranges of nominal diameters for which the
gasket is intended.
GCP preparation: these entries will define the end preparation for which the gasket is
intended. Gasket definitions should not be made for end preparations implying integral
gaskets. For a piping materials class in which all gaskets are integral, the gasket gap in
the Piping Job Specification table is defined as "0".
GCP rating: these entries will define the pressure rating for which the gasket is intended.
For this definition, the values of rating must omit characters such as "CL", "#" and "OT"

even if these were used in the definition of the component to which the gasket will
correspond.
GCP table suffix: these entries will define the table suffix for which the gasket is intended.
Commodity code
TMx: this represents the maximum temperature for which use of the gasket is allowed. It
will also provide one of the search keys for the value of gasket gap in the Gasket Gaps
Table.
Geometry standard: the entry of a value for this parameter is optional. It has been entered
in the piping materials classes to assist the user in interpreting the definition of the gasket.
Mod: this attribute allows the definition of the compressed gasket thickness or other
gasket parameter that is required to procure the gasket.
Material grade: the entry of a value for this parameter is optional. It has been entered in
the piping materials classes to assist the user in interpreting the definition of the gasket.
Fabrication class: these entries will define the disposition that is made of the gasket for
material reporting and isometric purposes.
The default selection of a gasket is based upon option "1". If the user wishes to use a gasket at a
joint other than the default, he could do so by overriding during placement of a commodity or
specialty component the gasket override option that is to apply for gasket selection. The value of
this override option will apply to all the connect points of all bolted ends placed as part of
thatplacement operation. If one of the bolted ends to be placed is to mate a previously placed end
which has a different gasket override option, placement of the component will fail. The gasket gap
that will apply to the override gasket is determined by the system from a gasket gap table in a
manner analogous to that used for the default gaskets. During automatic component placement,
bolted ends added by the system to mate existing ends will inherit the values of gasket override
option that apply to the previously placed ends. During model reconstruction, the system will
respect the gasket override option defined during previous placements.
Two possibilities exist regarding gasket selection depending upon the value for end
preparation of the components at the bolted joint:
If one or both of the ends at the bolted joint has an end preparation indicating that an
integral gasket applies, no gasket is returned by the system.
If none of the ends at the bolted joint has an end preparation indicating that an integral
gasket applies, the system will proceed as follows:
The system will select for each bolted end in a bolted joint, from the piping materials
class, the gasket to use on the basis of the functional capability described under the
heading "Choosing Gasket at Bolted End".
After all gaskets are so determined at a bolted joint, the system will compare the
commodity codes and modifiers of mating ends. If they are identical, the gasket
selection is deemed to be successful; if not identical a fatal error is reported.
At the a bolted joint, regardless of the number of ends involved at the joint and of the design
volumes in which they might be found, the default ownership for all gaskets and studs required
by the joint is assigned by the system to the first non-thru-bolted end found by the system
during the gasket selection process. This characteristic only affects the ownership of such
gaskets and studs. The gasket selection itself is based on the criteria given in preceding
paragraphs and not on the properties of the first bolted end encountered by the system. If a
user needs to assign the ownership of gaskets and studs for the joint to a particular bolted end,
he may do so by setting the value of the applicable user-data attribute for the applicable
connect point to either "Default Gasket/Bolts/Nuts Ownership" or "Gasket/Bolts/Nuts Owned
by this Component". As was the case for the default ownership, this attribute only controls in
which isometric drawing the gaskets and studs are listed and not their selection basis.

parameters listed below.
A stud entry is required for every combination of nominal diameter, preparation (only if the

GCP and RCP preparation: these entries will define the preparation of the non-thru-bolted

The stud is intended for non-thru-bolted ends with identical preparations and rating,
the value of the preparation will only be included in the GCP preparation column; a "-"
is included for the RCP preparation.
The stud is intended for mating bolted ends with different either preparation or rating:
the properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP
preparation, regardless of the values for rating, is defined under the GCP data.
GCP and RCP rating: these entries will define the pressure rating of the non-thru-bolted
ends of the bolted joint for which the stud is intended. For this definition, the values of
rating must omit characters such as "CL", "#" and "OT" even if these were used in the

The stud is intended for non-thru-bolted ends with identical preparations and ratings:
the value of the rating will only be included in the GCP rating column; a "-" is included

The stud is intended for mating bolted ends with identical preparations but different
ratings: the value of the stronger rating is included in the GCP rating column; the
value of the weaker rating is included in the RCP rating column. This situation is
commonly found, for example, due to equipment nozzle rating differing from that of
the mating piping component flange.

The stud is intended for mating bolted ends with different preparations and ratings:
the properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP
preparation is defined under the GCP data.
Commodity code: a different commodity code is assigned, for example, to:
Studs which are always lubricated.
Studs which are only lubricated when they exceed a given bolt diameter.
Studs which are never lubricated.
TMx: this represents the maximum temperature at which use of the stud is allowed.
Geometry standard: the entry of a value for this parameter is optional. It has been
entered in the piping materials classes to assist the user in interpreting the definition of the
stud.
Mod: the following characteristics apply:
The sign used for this attribute defines whether a stud (+ or no sign) or a machine bolt
(-) is involved.
The value "0" defines studs that will use nuts of standard nut allowance. The value
"1" defines machine bolts that will use nuts of standard nut allowance. Values "2"
through "5" define either studs (+ or no sign) or machine bolts (-) that use special nut
allowances.
Material grade: the entry of a value for this parameter is optional. It has been entered in
the piping materials classes to assist the user in interpreting the definition of the stud.
Fabrication class: these entries will define the disposition that is made of the stud for
material reporting and isometric purposes.
The system will select, from the piping materials class of the end that owns the joint, the stud
to use and its applicable data on the basis of the functional capability described under the
heading "Choosing Stud at Bolted Joint".
The system will access for each non-thru-bolted end in a bolted joint the applicable of the
tables described below.
STUD_Rat_TS, if the RDB option that involves CP termination for bolt length calculations
is not active (in the WS software, the 'almost precise' value applies to the corresponding
toggle switch); or
STUD_Term_Rat_TS, if the RDB option that involves CP termination for bolt length
calculations is active (in the WS software, the 'precise' value applies to the corresponding
toggle switch).
To determine the number and diameter of bolts required and the nut allowance to be used.
The system will use the termination type (only if the RDB option that involves CP termination
for bolt length calculations is active), rating and table suffix of the applicable bolted end to
select the stud table to use. No similar access to a stud table is made for the thru-bolted ends
of the joint. If identical values for number and diameter of bolts are derived from all the stud
tables that were accessed for the bolted joint, regardless of whether the bolted ends are in the
same or in different design volumes, the system will proceed. If different values are derived,
a fatal error is reported.
The value of nut allowance selected for each bolted end will depend upon the value of the
modifier parameter read in the piping materials class for the stud applicable to the joint. The
actual value of nut allowance selected for each non-thru-bolted ends of the bolted joint is used
in the determination of bolt length for the joint.
Both thru-bolted ends and non-thru-bolted ends will have a BLT_Term_Rat_TS tables
associated with them. Tables for non-thru-bolted ends will have actual values for bolt circle
diameter. Tables for thru-bolted ends will have dashes for bolt circle diameter. The system

BLT_Term_Rat_TS table to determine the bolt circle diameter that applies. If identical values
for bolt circle diameter are derived, the system will proceed. If different values are derived, a

Stud and machine bolt lengths are calculated by the system as the sum of the following:
The values for all dimensions "R" derived from the applicable generic tables for all
non-thru-bolted ends involved in the bolted connection, plus
The values for all "face to face" dimensions stored in the TDB for all thru-bolted ends

At the a bolted joint, regardless of the number of ends involved at the joint and of the design
volumes in which they might be found, the default ownership for all gaskets and studs required
by the joint is assigned by the system to the first non-thru-bolted end found by the system
during the stud selection process. This characteristic only affects the ownership of such
gaskets and studs. The stud selection itself is based on the criteria given in preceding
paragraphs and not on the properties of the first bolted end encountered by the system. If the
user has the need of assigning the ownership of gaskets and studs for the joint to a particular

this attribute only controls in which isometric drawing the gaskets and studs are listed and not

Named and Unamed Specialties


Piping specialty components can be either named or unnamed, as follows:
Named components are those components to which a project unique name, called component
number, is assigned by the User in the Piping TDB AND whose dimensional data has been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. The storage of data about piping
specialty components in the Instrument Task is temporary and only until such time as the
Piping Specialties Task is developed.
Unnamed components are those components to which either a component number is not
assigned by the User in the Piping TDB and/or whose dimensional data has not been defined
in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. During the design process, it is possible for a
piping specialty component to first be considered unnamed and then named, and vice versa.
Data about unnamed piping specialty components is stored in the piping specialties part of the
Piping Job Specification. The primary access key to named piping specialty components is
their AABBCC code. An AABBCC code may be considered as a generic code about which a
more detailed definition is made in the Piping Job Specification. Depending upon the
circumstances:
One or more model codes may be assigned to one AABBCC code, or
The same model code may be assigned to different AABBCC codes.
The system will first search for dimensional data about the piping specialty component in the
Instrument TDB. In this search, the system will try to match the component number of the piping
specialty component with the "tag number" assigned to it in the Instrument TDB. If dimensional
data about the component is found, the system will assume the component to be named and will
proceed to retrieve dimensional data about it.
If either the component or dimensional data about it is not found, the system will conclude that the
component is unnamed and will then search for it in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification by its AABBCC code, option and pertinent size range and will proceed to retrieve
applicable data about it.
One of the items retrieved from either the Instrument TDB or the Piping Job Specification is the
model code, which will include the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. So that the various sets of data that may exist about these connect points can
remain coordinated, the following conventions have been followed regarding the sequence of data
in the Instrument TDB and in the Piping Job Specification and regarding the naming of the
Interactive Data Tables:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If the component has ends of two different nominal diameters, regardless of how the other end
properties compare, properties about the larger nominal diameter end(s) have been defined
under the green connect point data.

If the termination type of the ends are the same but the values for rating, schedule or
thickness differ, the properties of the "stronger" ends(s) have been defined under the
green connect point data.
For each piping specialty component, dimensional data is defined in tables, as follows:
Named Specialty - If the component is named, regardless of its other characteristics, the
following applies:
Both generic and specific data about the component is included in the applicable unit of
the Instrument TDB.

o As with other specialty components, selection of a
flexible hose may be made either by:
- Defining its component number, or
- Defining it generically. In this case, the User at the
terminal will first select the "Option" code that
defines the end preparation that he wishes to use at the
ends of the hose. He will then select the AABBCC code
that applies to these components.
o With the above information, the system will establish from
the piping specialties section of the Piping Job
Specification the type of end preparation to be used at
the ends of the hose.
o The system will prompt the User to define the location of
the two connect points that define the ends of the hose.
o The system will prompt the User to define points in space
that define the route of the centerline of the hose.
o With this information, the system will display the
graphics that represent the ends of the flexible hose.
The centerline of these graphics will then be joined by
the system with the points that define the centerline of
the hose. A solid, heavy weight, single line is used
to represent this centerline.
o The system will display to the User the linear length of
the line representing the centerline of the hose and will
prompt the User to define the length of the hose to be
provided. This length is stored in the TDB and will
be available in the procurement of the component.
o There is no table that defines data which is specific
to flexible hoses.

Control valves and regulators may be:
Connected to an equipment nozzle by direct mounting on it.
Connected to a pipeline by either:
Insertion in it
Direct mounting to the PCP of an in-line piping component
Direct mounting to the PCP of another in-line instrument component.
Placed unconnected.
It is possible either to insert these instrument components in the pipeline in which they belong with
the system breaking the line graphics as required (the system will rotate the instrument
component as dictated by the orientation of the line in which it is to be inserted); or to place these
components in free space and then pipe to them.
Control valves and regulators will not be included in the piping materials class of the line in which
placed. They are independent of piping materials class.

Named and Unnamed Instruments


Control valves and regulators can be either named or unnamed, as follows:
Named components are those components to which a project unique name, called component
number, is assigned by the User in the Piping TDB AND whose dimensional data has been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task.
Unnamed components are those components to which either a component number has not
been assigned by the User in the Piping TDB and/or whose dimensional data has not been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. During the design process, it is possible
for a control valve or regulator to first be considered unnamed and then named, and vice
versa. Data about unnamed control valves and regulators is stored in the instrument
specialties part of the Piping Job Specification. The primary access key to named control
valves and regulators is their AABBCC code. An AABBCC code may be considered as a
generic code about which a more detailed definition is made in the Piping Job Specification.
Depending upon the circumstances:
One or more model codes may be assigned to one AABBCC code, or
The same model code may be assigned to different AABBCC codes.
The system will first search for dimensional data about the control valve or regulator in the
Instrument TDB. In this search, the system will try to match the component number of the control
valve or regulator with the tag number assigned to it in the Instrument TDB. If dimensional data
about the component is found, the system will assume the component to be named and will
proceed to retrieve dimensional data about it.
If either the component or dimensional data about it is not found, the system will conclude that the
component is unnamed and will then search for it in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification by its AABBCC code, option and pertinent size range and will proceed to retrieve
applicable data about it.
One of the items retrieved from either the Instrument TDB or the Piping Job Specification is the
model code, which will include the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. So that the various sets of data that may exist about these connect points can
remain coordinated, the following conventions have been followed regarding the sequence of data
in the Instrument TDB and in the Piping Job Specification and regarding the naming of the
Interactive Data Tables:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If the component has ends of two different nominal diameters, regardless of how the other end
properties compare, properties about the larger nominal diameter end(s) have been defined
under the green connect point data.
If the component has ends of the same nominal diameter but differing in some of the other end
properties, the following applies:
If the termination type of the ends differ, regardless of the values for schedule/thickness,
the properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP preparation
have been defined under the green connect point data.
If the termination type of the ends are the same but the values for rating, schedule or
thickness differ, the properties of the stronger ends(s) have been defined under the green
connect point data.
For each control valve or regulator, dimensional data is defined in tables, as follows:

The AABBCC code for relief devices will consist of the applicable AABB code, 7P2C, followed by

Relief devices can be:
Connected to an equipment nozzle by direct mounting on it.
Connected to a pipeline by either:
Insertion in it
Direct mounting to the PCP of an in-line piping component
Direct mounting to the PCP of another in-line instrument component.
Placed unconnected.
It is possible either to insert these instrument components in the pipeline in which they belong with
the system breaking the line graphics as required (the system will rotate the instrument
component as dictated by the orientation of the line in which it is to be inserted); or to place these
components in free space and then pipe to them.
Relief devices will not be included in the piping materials class of the line in which placed. They
are independent of piping materials class.

Named or Unnamed Relief Devices


Relief devices can be either named or unnamed, as follows:
Named components are those components to which a project unique name, called component
number, is assigned by the User in the Piping TDB AND whose dimensional data has been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task.
Unnamed components are those components to which either a component number has not
been assigned by the User in the Piping TDB and/or whose dimensional data has not been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. During the design process, it is possible
for a relief device to first be considered unnamed and then named, and vice versa. Data
about unnamed relief devices will be stored in the instrument specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification. The primary access key to named relief devices will be their AABBCC code.
An AABBCC code may be considered as a generic code about which a more detailed
definition is made in the Piping Job Specification. Depending upon the circumstances:
One or more model codes may be assigned to one AABBCC code, or
The same model code may be assigned to different AABBCC codes.
The system will first search for dimensional data about the relief device in the Instrument TDB. In
this search, the system will try to match the component number of the relief device with the tag
number assigned to it in the Instrument TDB. If dimensional data about the component is found,
the system will assume the component to be named and will proceed to retrieve dimensional data
about it.
If either the component or dimensional data about it is not found, the system will conclude that the
component is unnamed and will then search for it in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification by its AABBCC code, option and pertinent size range and will proceed to retrieve
applicable data about it.
One of the items retrieved from either the Instrument TDB or the Piping Job Specification is the
model code, which will include the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. So that the various sets of data that may exist about these connect points can
remain coordinated, the following conventions have been followed regarding the sequence of data
in the Instrument TDB and in the Piping Job Specification and regarding the naming of the
Interactive Data Tables:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If the component has ends of two different nominal diameters, regardless of how the other end
properties compare, properties about the larger nominal diameter end(s) have been defined
under the green connect point data.
If the component has ends of the same nominal diameter but differing in some of the other end
properties, the following applies:
If the termination type of the ends differ, regardless of the values for schedule/thickness, the
properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP preparation have been
defined under the green connect point data.
If the termination type of the ends are the same but the values for rating, schedule or thickness
differ, the properties of the stronger ends(s) have been defined under the green connect point
data.
For each relief device, dimensional data is defined in tables, as follows:

component as dictated by the orientation of the line in which it is to be inserted); or to place these
components in free space and then pipe to them.
Other in-line instruments will not be included in the piping materials class of the line in which
placed. They are independent of piping materials class.

Named or Unnamed Instruments


Other in-line instruments can be either named or unnamed, as follows:
Named components are those components to which a project unique name, called component
number, is assigned by the User in the Piping TDB AND whose dimensional data has been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task.
Unnamed components are those components to which either a component number has not
been assigned by the User in the Piping TDB and/or whose dimensional data has not been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. During the design process, it is possible
for an other in-line instrument to first be considered unnamed and then named, and vice versa.
Data about unnamed other in-line instruments is stored in the instrument specialties part of the
Piping Job Specification. The primary access key to named other in-line instruments is their

192

AABBCC code. An AABBCC code may be considered as a generic code about which a more
detailed definition is made in the Piping Job Specification. Depending upon the
circumstances:
One or more model codes may be assigned to one AABBCC code, or
The same model code may be assigned to different AABBCC codes.
The system will first search for dimensional data about the other in-line instrument in the
Instrument TDB. In this search, the system will try to match the component number of the other
in-line instrument with the tag number assigned to it in the Instrument TDB. If dimensional data
about the component is found, the system will assume the component to be named and will
proceed to retrieve dimensional data about it.
If either the component or dimensional data about it is not found, the system will conclude that the
component is unnamed and will then search for it in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification by its AABBCC code, option and pertinent size range and will proceed to retrieve
applicable data about it.
One of the items retrieved from either the Instrument TDB or the Piping Job Specification is the
model code, which will include the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. So that the various sets of data that may exist about these connect points can
remain coordinated, the following conventions have been followed regarding the sequence of data
in the Instrument TDB and in the Piping Job Specification and regarding the naming of the
Interactive Data Tables:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If the component has ends of two different nominal diameters, regardless of how the other end
properties compare, properties about the larger nominal diameter end(s) have been defined
under the green connect point data.
If the component has ends of the same nominal diameter but differing in some of the other end
properties, the following applies:
If the termination type of the ends differ, regardless of the values for schedule/thickness,
the properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP preparation
have been defined under the green connect point data.
If the termination type of the ends are the same but the values for rating, schedule or
thickness differ, the properties of the stronger ends(s) have been defined under the green
connect point data.
For each other in-line instrument, dimensional data is defined in tables, as follows:
If the component is named, regardless of its other characteristics, the following applies:
Both generic and specific data about the component is included in the applicable unit of
the Instrument TDB.
Refer to the explanation given under table format I80 for details.
If the component is unnamed, if only green connect point data appears in the definition of the
component in the instrument specialties part of the Piping Job Specification and if the connect
point is a male termination type, the following applies:
Data about the component is included in a table with format I81. The name of this table is
comprised of the following parameters from the instrument specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification:

Named or Unnamed Instruments


Off-line instruments can be either named or unnamed, as follows:
Named components are those components to which a project unique name, called component
number, is assigned by the User in the Piping TDB AND whose dimensional data has been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task.
Unnamed components are those components to which either a component number has not
been assigned by the User in the Piping TDB and/or whose dimensional data has not been
defined in the applicable unit of the Instrument Task. During the design process, it is possible
for an off-line instrument to first be considered unnamed and then named, and vice versa.
Data about unnamed off-line instruments is stored in the instrument specialties part of the
Piping Job Specification. The primary access key to named off-line instruments is their
AABBCC code. An AABBCC code may be considered as a generic code about which a more
detailed definition is made in the Piping Job Specification. Depending upon the
circumstances:
One or more model codes may be assigned to one AABBCC code, or
The same model code may be assigned to different AABBCC codes.
The system will first search for dimensional data about the off-line instrument in the Instrument
TDB. In this search, the system will try to match the component number of the off-line instrument
with the tag number assigned to it in the Instrument TDB. If dimensional data about the
component is found, the system will assume the component to be named and will proceed to
retrieve dimensional data about it.
If either the component or dimensional data about it is not found, the system will conclude that the
component is unnamed and will then search for it in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification by its AABBCC code, option and pertinent size range and will proceed to retrieve
applicable data about it.
One of the items retrieved from either the Instrument TDB or the Piping Job Specification is the
model code, which will include the definition of the graphic representation of the component in the
piping model.

Connect Point Data


Connect point dependent data about each component is organized in terms of green and red
connect points. So that the various sets of data that may exist about these connect points can
remain coordinated, the following conventions have been followed regarding the sequence of data
in the Instrument TDB and in the Piping Job Specification and regarding the naming of the
Interactive Data Tables:
If data is only shown under green connect point data, it applies to all ends of the component.
If the component has ends of two different nominal diameters, regardless of how the other end
properties compare, properties about the larger nominal diameter end(s) have been defined
under the green connect point data.
If the component has ends of the same nominal diameter but differing in some of the other end
properties, the following applies:

Commodity Discussions

If the termination type of the ends differ, regardless of the values for schedule/thickness,
the properties of the end(s) with the lowest codelist number defining its CP preparation
have been defined under the green connect point data.
If the termination type of the ends are the same but the values for rating, schedule or
thickness differ, the properties of the stronger ends(s) have been defined under the green
connect point data.
For each off-line instrument, dimensional data is defined in tables, as follows:
If the component is named, regardless of its other characteristics, the following applies:
Both generic and specific data about the component is included in the applicable unit of
the Instrument TDB.
Refer to the explanation given under table format I80 for details.
If the component is unnamed, if only green connect point data appears in the definition of the
component in the instrument specialties part of the Piping Job Specification and if the connect
point is a male termination type, the following applies:
Data about the component is included in a table with format I81. The name of this table is
comprised of the following parameters from the instrument specialties part of the Piping Job
Specification:
MC GS Term(G) Unnamed_I

The only independent variable in this table is the nominal diameter of the green connect point
of the component. The dependent variables are surface area, empty weight, weight of water
plus all those dimensional parameters required to display the component in the model whose
values are not defined in a generic table.
If the component is unnamed, if only green connect point data appears in the definition of the

Valve Operators and Actuators


All piping commodity valves will have operators unless otherwise specifically indicated in
paragraph C.1.2. Piping specialty components will only have operators if specifically so indicated
in paragraph C.3.1.
Instrument specialty control valves and relief devices will have actuators unless otherwise
specifically indicated in paragraph C.5.2 and C.5.3. The remaining instrument specialty
components will not have actuators.
Data about operators/actuators is stored in the entity that applies to the component to which the
operator/actuator belongs.
The type of operators/actuators is defined, using codelist values from codelist set CL550,
"Operator/Actuator Type", in the "Mod" column of the piping commodities part of the Piping Job
Specification. If the operator/actuator is to be placed in the model, a "+" or no sign entry is made
for this value. If the operator/actuator is not to be placed in the model, the code for the
operator/actuator is defined as a "-" number. It is possible to change from the TDB the decision
made regarding placing or not placing the valve operator/actuator in the model. To change the
type of operator/actuator that applies to a valve, you will have to place a valve with either a
different AABBCC code or with the proper option.
Model codes and symbol names for valve operators will have values as defined below:
For operators with data derived from parameters in the applicable Piping Materials Class 2-24:
For model codes, by appending the characters "OP_" to the entry for operator type in the
"Mod" column of the Piping Materials Class. For example, if the value "3" is found in the
"Mod" column, the model code is OP_3 (and not OP_03 or OP3).
For symbol names, by using the symbol whose value is hardcoded in the definition of the
applicable model code.
For operators with data derived from the commodity codes of the valves to which they apply,
25-40:
For model codes, by appending the characters "OP_" to the operator type entry in the "Mod"
column of the Piping Materials Class. For example, if the value "33" is found in the "Mod"
column, the model code is OP_33 (and not OP33 or OP_331).
For symbol names, by appending the characters "OP_" to the operator code entry in the third
output column of the applicable table P60A. For example, if the value "331" is found in the
subject column, the symbol name is OP_331 (and not OP33 or OP331). Note that each size
for a given commodity code may be given a different operator code, and thus a different
symbol name, if so required.
For actuators, 41-99:
For model codes, by appending the characters "OP_" to the operator code entry in the "Mod"
column of the applicable Specialty Table. For example, if the value "411" is found in the
"Mod" column, the model code is OP_411 (and not OP_41 or OP411).
For symbol names, by appending the characters "OP_" to the operator code entry in
parameter "Y1" of the applicable P8*, P9*, I8* or I9* table. For example, if the value "411" is
found in the subject column, the symbol name will be OP_411 (and not OP41 or OP411).
For valve appurtenances:
For model codes, by changing the characters "OP_" to "A_" of the model code of the valve to
which the appurtenance is applied and by adding the number indicated below to the numeric
part of the valve model code.

For symbol names, by using the symbol whose value is hardcoded in the definition of the
applicable model code.
Data for operators/actuators is defined in tables, as follows:
For piping valves in the piping commodities part of the Piping Job Specification and whose
operator types are less than or equal to 24, dimensional data about the operator, regardless of
whether only GCP or both GCP and RCP data applies to the valve, is included in a table with
format P31A. The name of this table is comprised of the following parameters from the piping
commodities part of the Piping Job Specification:

The independent variable(s) in this table is:
For operator types 1-3 and 5-24: the nominal diameter of the green connect point of the
operator.
For operator type 4: the nominal diameters of the "green and of the red connect points of
the operator.
The dependent variables are those dimensional parameters required to display the valve
operator in the model. For these operators, no definition is made of the location of their
center of gravity.
If columns available in the above table were insufficient to allow definition of all the applicable
dimensional parameters, the remaining parameters are included in a table with format P31B.
The name of the P31B table is comprised of the following parameters from the piping
commodities part of the Piping Job Specification:

In general, data in these tables represent the dimensions applicable to the valve described in
the corresponding short description. You should check these tables to make sure that
dimensions given are suitable to the project for which they are intended.
For piping valves in the piping specialties part of the Piping Job Specification whose operator
types exceed 40 and for all instrument valves, all applicable data about the valve, the operator
weight, the operator code (parameter Y1), the three parameters that define the location of the
center of gravity of the operator and all the dimensional parameters required to define the

The only independent variable in this table is the component number of the component. The
dependent variables is all the applicable data about the valve, the operator weight, the
operator code (parameter Y1), the three parameters that define the location of the center of
gravity of the operator and all the dimensional parameters required to define the geometry of
the valve operator.
If at placement time, data was not found in the applicable of the tables defined above, the system
will prompt you for the values of all the parameters that would otherwise be found in the data table.
At this time, a tutorial defining the applicable parameters is displayed. The values you define
are be stored by the system for use in subsequent model reconstruction. The values so stored
will not be used in future model reconstructions after the applicable data tables are prepared.
Valve operators will not be automatically placed during automatic component placement. They
will always be positioned by you.
In the list that follows, types 2-24 apply to operators for piping commodity valves whose
dimensions are determined from tables whose names are formed from attributes in the Piping Job
Specification. Types 25-40 apply to operators for piping commodity valves whose dimensions
are determined from tables whose names depend on the commodity codes for the valves. Types
41-99 apply to operators/actuators for piping and instrument specialty valves.

Piping Utility Connector (6R9E)


The Piping Connector Entity applies to this class of components.
6R9E02, Drain connector
You can place drain connectors, implying connections to sewer systems. The placing and
labeling of these connectors are part of the same command. A requirement for these
connectors is that it be possible to connect more than one piping group to them.

Off-volume Piping Connectors (6R9G)


The Piping Connector Entity applies to this class of components. You can place off-volume
piping connectors to identify the continuation of piping segments in another design volume of the
same site. These connectors are defined at the same time that the component is placed.

Off-Site Piping Connectors (6R9H)


The Piping Connector Entity applies to this class of components. You can place off-site piping
connectors to identify the continuation of piping segments in another design volume of a different
site. These connectors are defined at the same time that the component is placed. The system
will not coordinate the matching of off-site connectors in any way.

6Q3C83, Non-radial Reinforcing Weld


Non-radial reinforcing weld (MC=RWELD) (SN=F182)
TNF=P29A & None
Beveled ends
For GCP: Rating="-"; Sc/Th="-"
For RCP: Rating="-"; Sc/Th="-"
This model code represents a nonradial branch reinforcing weld; that is one in which the pipe
terminates at the outside surface of the header.
Non-radial reinforcing weld (MC=RWELD2) (SN=F182)
TNF=P29A & None
Beveled ends
For GCP: Rating="-"; Sc/Th="-"
For RCP: Rating="-"; Sc/Th="-"
This model code represents a "stub-in" reinforcing weld; that is one in which the pipe terminates at
the inside surface of the header.
The following comments apply to all reinforcing welds:
Reinforcing welds are defined in the piping materials classes to have a fabrication category of
"-" since for them it is not possible to define this attribute. In the isometric drawings, a note is
placed in the graphic part of the drawing to show their size. A short description has been
prepared for reinforcing welds. The option not to display reinforcing welds in the bill of
materials is chosen, however, in the ISOGEN options file.
Reinforcing welds may be placed with either single or double curvature, for example
reinforcing a pipe or a head respectively.
The angle of intersection between the header and the branch is part of the table name
containing dimensional parameters for the component. This angle will be derived by the
system from data in the design file.
Four different types of intersection are recognized:
Intersections at angles equal to or greater than 20 but less than 45 degrees: the number
"2045" is used as part of the table name.
Intersections at 45 degrees: the number "45" is used as part of the table name.
Intersections at angles greater than 45 but lesser than 90 degrees: the number "4590" is
used as part of the table name.
Intersections at 90 degrees: the number "90" is used as part of the table name.
Two possibilities exist regarding dimensions for a reinforcing weld:
If a "0" is entered in the "MOD" column of the Piping Job Specification, dimensions are to
be derived from either a data table and/or from branch calculations.
For either case, a value is provided for the reinforcing weld size in the applicable
dimension table.

See section titled "Choosing a Branch Connection from a Branches Table" for details.
If a "1" is entered in such column, the system is to prompt for dimensions. If dimensions
are provided by the user, their values are stored in the TDB so that in subsequent
recreations of the piping system, those values and not those that might exist in a data
table are used by the system.
Data defined for these components will allow the system to determine the applicable stress
intensification factors (SIF) to be used in stress analysis of the piping system.
The thickness of the portion of piping from PCP2 of this component to the centerline of the
header is reported as "RIGID" to the Pipe Stress Analysis software, regardless of the value in
the Piping Job Specification so as not to provide a fictitious flexibility.
The empty weight of these components is neglected.

the component is defined as that axis which follows the direction of the thumb of the right hand
when the other fingers of the right hand are curled in the direction following the path from the
positive end of the primary axis of the component to the positive end of the secondary axis of
the component. The output parameters which are specific to this symbol are defined as
follows:
Output D1 - defines the vectorial distance from the origin of the component to PCP1 along the
direction of the primary axis of the component. Its sign will be positive if the vector is in the
direction of the primary axis of the component and negative if it is opposite to the direction of
the primary axis of the component.
Output D2 - defines the vectorial distance from the origin of the component to PCP1 along the
direction of the secondary axis of the component. Its sign will be positive if the vector is in the
direction of the secondary axis of the component and negative if it is opposite to the direction
of the secondary axis of the component.
Output D3 - defines the vectorial distance from the origin of the component to PCP1 along the
direction of the tertiary axis of the component. Its sign will be positive if the vector is in the
direction of the tertiary axis of the component and negative if it is opposite to the direction of
the tertiary axis of the component.
Output D4 - defines the length of the component along the direction of the primary axis of the
component. Its sign will always be positive.
Output D5 - defines the length of the component along the direction of the secondary axis of
the component. Its sign will always be positive.
Output D6 - defines the dimension of the component along the direction of the tertiary axis of
the component. Its sign will always be positive.
The nominal pipe diameter of PCP1 refers to the header size.
The value for angle B and/or for "angle" will be intrinsic to the component being placed, unless
it is stated in Appendix B that it is to be determined by the system from data contained in the
design file.
You will first identify the PCP of the elbow that will determine the centerline direction of the
elbolet, as defined by the primary axis of the orientation tee of the elbow PCP. When
placement of an elbolet is involved, the system will always place PCP2 of the elbolet pointing
away from the elbow, regarless of the direction in which the orientation tee points. The
system will then place a temporary PCP at the intersection of the primary axis of the
orientation tee with the outside of the elbow. This temporary PCP will then be moved inside
the elbow by a fixed amount to ensure that the connection between the elbolet and the elbow
will not "leak". The "moved" PCP will become PCP1 for the elbolet. The system will then
place PCP2 for the elbolet using the "M" dimension from the data table.
Dimension "N" will be equal to the branch (RCP) outside diameter "P" plus "2K".
The value for parameter "M" will be provided in the "Mod" column of the Piping Job
Specification. It will not be stored in any data table.
This dimension will be equal to "1.5P".
The value of "N" may be positive or negative, depending upon the type of end being defined.
If the value of "N" is <=0, the system will not draw a cylinder to represent the female end
socket.
The origin of the section describing this component will be located at the intersection of the
plane containing the axis of flow for the component with the planes at the ends of the
component, as follows:
For bolted ends: the plane passing through the back of the bolted end.
For male and female ends: the plane passing through the corresponding connect point.

For bolted ends: not applicable.
For male or female ends: the plane passing through a point located inward from the
corresponding connect point "end distance" "K" or "L", if applicable.
36. For pipe bends, the radius of the torous for this component will be the nominal pipe diameter
of the component times the value included in the "Mod" column of the Piping Job
Specification.
For all other applicable components, the radius of the torous will be determined from the
equations listed below:

The number of taps will be provided in the "Mod" column of the Piping Job Specification. The
same data table will apply regardless of the number of taps involved.

system.
If half of "P" for PCP3 is greater than "F", locate the end of the component in the vicinity of
PCP2 a distance equal to "0.7P" from the origin of the component and locate PCP2 a distance
"F" from the origin.
Parameter "K" will be no less than 0.25 inch and no more than the lesser of 0.5 inch or 90% of
dimension "O".
Parameter "M" will equal the nominal pipe diameter times the factor indicated below:

47. Model codes and symbols ending in the letter "C", for example S1AC, may be used to
represent piping commodity components. Since the EDEN software does not recognize
"generic" components for piping commodity components, however, the following limitations
apply:
Model codes S1AC, S3AC and S4AC must be defined to have no offset; for example, for
model S1AC, parameters P4 and P5 must be defined to be zero.
For model code S51AC, parameter P7 must be zero.
Model code S64BC does not work at all.
The above limitations do not apply to piping specialty components.
48. This symbol will be used to represent off-line instruments by means of a cylinder. The
following comments will apply:
The applicability of this representation will be defined by you, making the proper menu
selection at placement time. It will be remembered by the system during reconstruction of
the model.
Several identical model codes have been provided (I301iT or I301iS, where i=A-J) to allow
definition of up to 2000 instruments of the same AABBCC code.
No access to a data table will be required when this representation applies. If values are
not entered for P2 and P3, they will be defaulted to "minimum" and "6 inches" respectively.
49. Output P1 defines the total number of connect points applicable to the component. If the
number entered in this field is less than the number of connect points shown pictorially in the
sketch for the applicable symbol, only the number of connect points entered for this parameter
will apply.
50. Output P1 defines the total number of connect points applicable to the component. The
number entered for this parameter must agree with the number of connect points shown
pictorially in the sketch for the applicable symbol.
51. The following note applies to operators with chainwheels:
The diameter of the chainwheel will be assumed to be equal to that of the corresponding
handwheel.
The value for the chainwheel height (CW Height) will be determined by the software as a
function of the corresponding handhweel diameter (HW Diam), as follows:
HW Diam
CW Height
=<6.000
(0.33333)(HW Diam)
>6.000, =<42.000

52. During reconstruction of the model, the system will automatically place the operator with the
dimensions and in the orientation defined by you during initial placement. For piping

components, if you added an appurtenance, this is also remembered by the reconstruction


software.
For components that have operators or actuators, the secondary axis of the orientation tee
used in placing the component will define the direction of the operator. The primary direction
of the operator or actuator will be oriented by the system in the direction of the secondary axis
of the orientation tee used in placing the component. The secondry direction of the operator
or actuator will be oriented by the system in the direction of the primary axis of the orientation
tee used in placing the component. No auxiliary orientation tee will be available to change
the orientation of the operator or actuator. The resulting operator orientation will be defined
on the isometric drawing.
However, the orientation of an operator or actuator depends upon how both the component
and the operator were defined. If either of them was defined to have the operator oriented
with a secondary orientation tee (see note 71), such secondary orientation tee will apply and
will behave as defined in note 71.
Those parameters shown on the sketch with a + sign may be either positive or negative. All
other parameters must always have positive values.
Commodity descriptions for chain operators, floor stands and extension stems will be derived
from commodity codes CHAIN_*, FSTAND_* and XSTEM_*. Refer to documents explaining
the generation of isometric drawings and materials reports for details.
The value of this parameter will equal the nominal pipe diameter of the valve.
For components that have operators or actuators, the orientation tee used in placing the
component involved will be used to orient the operator or actuator. Upon placement of the
component, the system will place an auxiliary orientation tee at the origin of the component to
allow the orientation of the operator or actuator. As a default, the primary axis of the auxiliary
orientation tee will be oriented by the system in the direction of the secondary axis of the
primary orientation tee (even if the operator is at an angle) and will define the direction of the
operator or actuator. As a default, the secondary axis of the auxiliary orientation tee will point
in the direction of the primary axis of the primary orientation tee. You will then be able to
orient the operator or actuator by manipulating the orientation of either the primary or the
secondary axis of the auxiliary orientation tee. The resulting operator orientation will be
defined on the isometric drawing.
However, the orientation of an operator or actuator depends upon how both the component
and the operator were defined. If either of them was defined to have the operator oriented
with a secondary orientation tee, such secondary orientation tee will apply and will behave as
defined in note 71.
The system will record in the TDB DMRS database the value of the angular parameter defined
below. This angle will be used by the Isogen Interface Software to define the primary
orientation of the operator on the iso.

For data tables that are prepared without this parameter, the EDEN symbol will assume that
no stem extension applies.
The dimensions for gear operators shown on data tables were obtained in the following
manner: from the fully open valve stem dimension stated in the catalog we subtracted the
valve nominal pipe diameter to account for the stem free travel. We then added the flange
adaptor height, as advised by the Manufacturer, and the height of the gear operator, from
catalog dimensions.
The angle that the secondary axis of the auxiliary orientation tee makes in its final position
with its default position is required for the purchase of the valve and must be supplied by the
system to the materials control function.
For this operator, the center of gravity of the valve operator will always be located along the
operator stem. The values of "Y2" and "Y3" will always be "-" in the corresponding operator
data table.
The dimensional or orientation parameters listed below will be defined by you from the design

Assembly Notes
1. For a vent/drain connection off a pipe run, the system will place the appropriate branch
reinforcement component on the basis of data in the applicable branch reinforcement table.
For a vent/drain connection off equipment item, a piping component or an instrument
component, you must select the proper component to which the vent drain assembly will be
connected. This may require defining a nozzle in an item of equipment or placing a tap on a
piping component.
2. The characteristics of this branch nipple and of the flange mating the vent/drain valve, if
applicable, will be as follows:
If the CP of the vent/drain valve that is nearest the pipe run has an end preparation type in the
range from 10 through 81, as defined by codelist set CL330, the following will apply:
If the pipe run is not insulated, the following applies:
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is in the range from 10 through 81, as defined by codelist set CL330, no branch nipple
nor vent/drain valve mating flange will be required. The vent/drain valve will be
bolted directly to the flange of the branch.
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is 301, as defined by codelist set CL330, no branch nipple will be required. The
flange that mates the vent/drain valve will be chosen to have a RCP with end
preparation 301 and will be connected directly to the assembly end of the branch
component.
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is 421 or 441, as defined by codelist set CL330, a 4 inch long branch nipple will be
required. If end preparation 421 is involved, applicable AABBCC and option codes
for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88 and 728 respectively. If end preparation 441 is
involved, applicable AABBCC and option codes for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88
and 727 respectively. The flange that mates the vent/drain valve will be chosen to
have a RCP with end preparation to suit that of the assembly end of the branch
component (421 or 441) and will be connected directly to the assembly end of the
branch nipple.
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is other than defined above, an error message will be returned by the system when
use of this assembly is attempted.
If the pipe run is insulated, the following applies:
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is in the range from 10 through 81, as defined by codelist set CL330, no branch nipple
nor vent/drain valve mating flange will be required. The vent/drain valve will be
bolted directly to the flange of the branch.

If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly
is 301, 421 or 441, as defined by codelist set CL330, a branch nipple will be provided
with nominal length defined by the following equation:
L= 1 + P/2 + T + W_i - B - N
where, L - is the nominal length required for the branch nipple
1 - is one inch
P/2 - is half the outside pipe diameter as derived from table MAL_Term_TS for the
pipe run.
T - is the insulation thickness of the pipe run as derived from the TDB

W_i - is the nut allowance as derived from the applicable of the tables described
below
STUD_Rat_TS, if the RDB option that involves CP termination for bolt length calculations
is not active;

OR
STUD_Term_Rat_TS, if the RDB option that involves CP termination for bolt length
calculations is active that applies to the bolts used by the vent/drain valve.
B - is the offset of assembly end of the branch component from the centerline of the pipe
run, derived from the applicable branch component dimension table.
N - is the distance from the back of the flange to CP2 in the flange, as defined in table
MC_GS_Term(G)_Rat(G)_Term(R)_Rat(R)_A that applies to the vent/drain valve.
The nominal length of the branch nipple determined from the above equation will be
rounded to the next full inch length but will be no less than 4 inches long. The end
preparation(s) of the branch nipple will be chosen by the system to suit the end
preparation types of the branch component. If end preparation 301 is involved,
applicable AABBCC and option codes for the branch nipple will be PIPING and 1
respectively. If end preparation 421 is involved, applicable AABBCC and option codes
for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88 and 728 respectively. If end preparation 441 is
involved, applicable AABBCC and option codes for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88 and
727 respectively.
The flange that mates the vent/drain valve will be chosen by the system to have a RCP
with end preparation to suit that of the assembly end of the branch component (301, 421
or 441) and will be connected to the branch nipple.
If the end preparation of the CP of the branch component that applies to the assembly is
other than defined above, an error message will be returned by the system when use of
this assembly is attempted.
If the CP of the vent/drain valve which is nearest the pipe run has end preparation type of
either 421 or 441, as defined by codelist set CL330, a branch nipple will be required. The
branch nipple length will be 1 inch longer than the insulation thickness of the pipe run rounded
to the next full inch length but no less than 4 inches long. The end preparations of the branch
nipple will be chosen by the system to suit the end preparation types of the branch component
and of the vent/drain valve. If end preparation 421 is involved, applicable AABBCC and
option codes for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88 and 728 respectively. If end preparation
441 is involved, applicable AABBCC and option codes for the branch nipple will be 6Q3C88
and 727 respectively.
No flange will be required to mate the vent/drain valve.

If the CP of the vent/drain valve which is nearest the pipe run has end preparation type other
than in the range from 10-81 or of either 421 or 441, as defined by codelist set CL330, an error
message will be returned by the system when use of this assembly is attempted.
3. If the mating CPs of the valves in the vent/drain assembly have an end preparation other than
421, an error message will be returned by the system when use of this assembly is attempted.
4. If any of the CPs of the valve in the vent/drain assembly have an end preparation other than
401 or if the pipe is insulated beyond 4 inches thickness, an error message will be returned by
the system when use of this assembly is attempted.
