Consider the following human spec 1PP0H01 (Class 150, Polypropylene (Copolymer), 0.000" C.A. Process) from the Process Industry Practices organization. 5

You should follow the same process for 1PP0H01 as in the previous human spec examples, 3CS1S02, 1SP1S01, 1CS1S01, and 1LK0F01 with the following exceptions:

  • Per Piping Note 122, plastic pipe should be protected against ultraviolet light penetration, when placed in an outdoor environment. Permissible methods include painting, taping, or insulating. The manufacturer should be consulted for recommendations. You may choose to specify the requirement for Exterior Coating through the use of the Exterior Coating and Surface Treatment Rule on the basis of the piping spec, the environmental zone, and the size range.

  • The human spec specifies a cap for ½" to 12". However, Piping Note 124 indicates that a stub end should be used with a blind flange for sizes 14" and larger. This will require you to create an additional record in the piping spec for the combination of the blind flange and the stub end in the same manner as the preceding example for a lap joint flange and a stub end. Note that this will require you to create a special part for the blind flange, where the geometric data and the weight data for the stub end have been assimilated with that of the blind flange. In other words, this blind flange part will require a different commodity code than the typical blind flange, even though the same fitting is being used. Presently, requires the stub end to be implied by the corresponding blind flange. This is achieved by specifying the Contractor Commodity Code of the stub end as the value of the Reportable Piping Commodity's Contractor Commodity Code for the blind flange record. You should use the same value of the Short Code for both the Cap and the Blind Flange that requires the stub end, so that the piping designer is not required to be aware of the change in material requirements between 12" and 14". We recommend that you use a value equivalent the Closing Component or End Fitting functional short code in the Default Piping Commodity Selection Rule.

  • The human spec specifies that a 90° Mitered Elbow be used for 90° direction changes from 18" through 24". You must specify the value of 'Mitered elbow to be automatically fabricated from pipe stock' for the Selection Basis property, and must specify the appropriate value for the Number of Miter Cuts property in the Piping Commodity Filter. Note that a value for the Contractor Commodity Code is not required because a part is not required for the 90° Mitered Elbow. You should use the same value of the Short Code for both the 90° Elbow and the 90° Mitered Elbow, so that the piping designer is not required to be aware of the change in fittings between 16" and 18". We recommend that you use a value equivalent the 90° Direction Change functional short code in the Default Piping Commodity Selection Rule. The data for the 90° Mitered Elbow is determined on the basis of the pipe stock for the applicable size.

  • The human spec specifies that a 45° mitered elbow be used for 45° direction changes from 14" through 24". You must specify the value of 'Mitered elbow to be automatically fabricated from pipe stock' for the Selection Basis property, and must specify the appropriate value for the Number of Miter Cuts property in the Piping Commodity Filter. Note that a value for the Contractor Commodity Code is not required, since a part is not required for the 45° mitered elbow. You should use the same value of the Short Code for both the 45° elbow and the 45° mitered elbow, so that the piping designer is not required to be aware of the change in fittings between 12" and 14". We recommend that you use a value equivalent the 45° Direction Change functional short code in the Default Piping Commodity Selection Rule. The data for the 45° Mitered Elbow is determined on the basis of the pipe stock for the applicable size.

  • The Branch Intersection Rule of the human spec specifies that a Fabricated Tee be used for full-size branches from 18" through 24". You must specify the value of either 'Stub-on reinforcing weld by system' or 'Stub-in reinforcing weld by system' for the Selection Basis property in the Piping Commodity Filter. Note that a value for the Contractor Commodity Code is not required, since a part is not required for the Fabricated Tee. The data for the Fabricated Tee is determined on the basis of the pipe stock for the applicable size.

  • The Branch Intersection Rule of the human spec specifies that a Fabricated Reducing Tee be used for reducing branches, where the header size varies from 12" through 24". You must specify the value of either 'Stub-on reinforcing weld by system' or 'Stub-in reinforcing weld by system' for the Selection Basis property in the Piping Commodity Filter. Note that a value for the Contractor Commodity Code is not required because a part is not required for the Fabricated Reducing Tee. The data for the Fabricated Reducing Tee is determined on the basis of the pipe stock for the applicable size.
