The Socket Offset Rule node (the SocketOffsetRule sheet in the Socket Offset Rule.xls workbook) defines the socket offset (expansion gap) for female ends on the basis of the pressure rating (or schedule), end preparation, end standard, and nominal piping diameter of the female end.

Values defined in this rule supersedes any value that may be defined in the Female End Data rule unless a value is not defined here, then the Socket Offset value in the Female End Data is used.

End Practice (Required)

Select the end practice for the end.

End Preparation (Required)

Select the end preparation for the end. Valid end preparation codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet.

End Standard (Required)

Select the end standard for the end. Valid end standard codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndStandard sheet.

Nominal Piping Diameter (Required)

Enter the pipe diameter for which the socket offset rule applies.

Nominal Piping Diameter Units (Required)

Enter the unit of measurement, in or mm for example, for the values in the Nominal Piping Diameter column.

Pressure Rating (Conditionally Required)

Define the pressure rating for the socket offset. Valid pressure ratings are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PressureRating sheet.

Rating Practice (Conditionally Required)

Select the pressure rating practice for the socket offset selection.

Schedule (Conditionally Required)

Select the thickness schedule for the female end. This value is used as the basis of the female end generic data, if the Pressure Rating is undefined. In the case of a circular hole end (for example, the non-bolted end of a slip-on flange), the female end generic data should be specified with undefined values for both Pressure Rating and Schedule.

Schedule Thickness Practice (Conditionally Required)

Select the schedule practice for the female end.

Socket Offset (Required)

Enter the offset of the socket for the female end. Typically, this value is 1/16". Include the units of measure, such as mm or in, when specifying this value.

Termination Class (Required)

Select the termination class code. Options are defined in the End Preparation select list.

Termination Sub Class (Required)

Select the termination subclass code. Options are defined in the End Preparation select list.
