The Bolted End Data node (the PipingGenericDataBolted sheet in the Piping Catalog.xls workbook) defines generic bolted end data.

Body Outside Diameter (Conditionally Required)

Enter the fitting body outside diameter at the bolted end. You can specify the body outside diameter in the piping commodity part data (or piping specialty part data or instrument part data) for certain fittings rather than specifying the value here. If you do not enter a value here or in the piping commodity part data (or piping specialty part data or instrument part data), the outside diameter must be available in the plain piping generic data for the same value of the end standard property. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Bolt Circle Diameter (Required)

Enter the circle diameter of bolt holes on the face of flange. The bolt circle diameter is a theoretical circle inscribed by the center point of a series of bolt holes, drilled equally spaced, near the mid-circumference of a flange. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Bolt Diameter - (Required)

Enter the bolt diameter. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Bolt Pattern Length (Conditionally Required)

Enter the length of the drilling template pattern. This is shown as dimension A in the pictures.

Bolt Pattern Offset (Conditionally Required)

Enter the offset for the drilling template pattern. This is shown as dimension B in the pictures.

Bolt Pattern Width (Conditionally Required)

Enter the width of the drilling template pattern. This is shown as dimension C in the pictures.

Oval

Rectangle

Counter Bore Depth (Conditionally Required)

Enter the counter bore depth for hexagon socket head cap screws specified by JIS B 1176 and used for square flanges per JIS B 2291. A value must be specified here when the value of the Bolt Type property is set to "Cap screw, socket head, counter bore."

End Practice (Required)

Select the end practice for the bolted end.

End Preparation (Required)

Select the end preparation for the bolted end.

End Standard (Required)

Select the end standard for the bolted end.

Drilling Template Pattern (Conditionally Required)

Select the arrangement of bolt holes at the bolted end. For circular drilling templates, this value also indicates the default bolt hole orientation in the 3D model. Select "Circular, rotatable" for lap joint flanged ends, and either "Circular, two holes up" or "Circular, one hole up" for all other circular flanged ends.

If a value is not specified, the bolt holes will be assumed to be in a circular pattern (two holes up). The Bolt Circle Diameter property will apply when the drilling template pattern is circular (two holes up, one hole up, rotatable).

Flange Face Projection (Conditionally Required)

Enter the width of any projections that the flange may have, such as raised faces. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value. Prior to the 2003 version of ASME B16.5, the flange thickness included the raised face height for Class 300, and lower, flanges; while the Raised Face Height was excluded from the Flange Thickness for Class 400, and higher. However, the minimum flange thickness designation has been changed from C to tf, and it does not include the 2.0 mm (0.06 in.) Raised Face Height for Class 150 and 300 raised face flanges and flanged fittings, as was the case previously.

Flange Groove Width (Conditionally Required)

Enter the groove width of the bolted end, if applicable to groove flanged ends. This value is required to compute the gasket outside diameter. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Flange Outside Diameter (Required)

Enter the flange outside diameter for the bolted end. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Flange Thickness (Required)

Enter the distance from the outermost flange face to the back surface of the flange on which the nut rests. Include any projections that the flange may have, such as a raised face, only if the manufacturer’s data includes any projections or if specified by the standard. The flange thickness should include the thickness of the loose flange used, but not include the wall thickness of the pipe or stub end for lap-flanged ends.

In terms of ASME B16.5 (2003), this value is considered the minimum flange thickness. The tolerance for the minimum flange thickness, if applicable, is defined explicitly in the bolted end generic data. Otherwise, it must be included in the bolt extensions for both stud bolts and machine bolts.

In terms of DIN standards, the flange thickness is determined by a DIN flange standard. However, in some cases the flange thickness is based on the manufacturer or the material. In those cases, you must create a value for the end standard that is unique to the manufacturer and/or the material to determine the correct flange thickness, and hence the correct bolt length.

Flange Thickness Tolerance (Optional)

Enter the plus tolerance for the flange thickness. For example, ASME B16.5 (2003) specifies the flange thickness tolerance as 1/8" for NPD 18" and smaller, and a tolerance of 3/16" for NPD 20" and larger. This value is required for computing bolt lengths, when you prefer to express the flange thickness tolerance explicitly and independent of the stud or machine bolt extension. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Groove Pitch Diameter (Conditionally Required)

Type the diameter of the ring groove in a ring type joint flanged face. This property is only used for ring type joint flanged ends and is used to determine the compatibility of two dissimilar ring type joint flanged ends at a crossover connection.

Lap Thickness (Conditionally Required)

Type the lap thickness for lap flanged ends. Lap flanged ends are determined by the Termination Subclass property being equal to the numeric equivalent of "Lap flanged"; "Lap flanged, Ring Type Joint"; "Lap flanged, male"; "Lap flanged, female"; "Lap flanged, active"; or "Lap flanged, passive".

This property is not applicable when a stub end has been associated with the lap joint flange as a displayable piping commodity and dimensional data has been specified for the stub end to insert both the lap joint flange and the stub end in the model. In that situation, the lap thickness is determined from the piping commodity part data for the stub end.

Nominal Piping Diameter (Required)

Type the nominal piping diameter for the bolted end.

Nominal Diameter Units (Required)

Specify the units for the nominal piping diameter. For example, mm or in. This unit of measure must be consistent with the port's unit of measure in the piping commodity part data for the piping commodity that references this reference data.

Pressure Rating (Required)

Select the pressure rating for the bolted end.

Quantity of Bolts Required (Required)

Enter the number of bolts required for the bolted end.

Raised Face Diameter (Conditionally Required)

Enter the raised-face diameter of the bolted end, if applicable to raised-face flanged ends. This property also applies to the diameter of small male flange faces and large male flange faces. This value is required to compute the gasket outside diameter and the gasket inside diameter. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Rating Practice (Required)

Select the pressure rating practice for the bolted end.

Seating Depth (Conditionally Required)

Enter the distance from the outermost surface of the bolted end to the gasket seating surface. This value applies to small groove flanged, large groove flanged, small female flanged, large female flanged, small groove lap flanged, large groove lap flanged, small female lap flanged, large female lap flanged, ring type joint flanged, and mechanical joints. This value represents the groove depth for ring type joint flanged ends. Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Termination Class (Required)

Select the Bolted termination option.

Termination Sub Class (Required)

Select the termination sub class for the bolted end.
