The Bolt Length Lookup Rule node (the BoltLengthLookupRule sheet in the Sample Data for BoltLengthLookupRule.xls workbook) is an optional rule that is used to define the bolt lengths used for typical piping part assemblies equivalent to the values defined by corresponding rules in the reference data. The Bolt Length Lookup Rule is used to ensure that the bolts lengths ordered in advance by the material requisitioning system, such as SmartPlant Materials, match the MTO reports or isometric.b file (Isometric Bill of Material).

Spec Name 1 (Required)

Define a unique piping materials class name for the first part of the bolted joint.

Revision Number 1 (Optional)

Define a revision number of the piping material class, as assigned by the specification writer, for the first part of the bolted joint. The combination of the piping material class and the revision number uniquely identify the data for this rule.

This property is under the control of specification writer. It is not modified or validated by the system.

Short Code 1 (Required)

Type a name for specific type of piping commodity, such as a gate valve.

Option Category 1 (Optional)

Define a value for the optional commodity selection enabled by the specification writer. If the piping designer does not explicitly select a piping commodity, then the default commodity option is used.

Option Code 1 (Optional)

Define a value to represent the category of the commodity option. The specification writer can specify additional custom values other than the system defined values.

NPD 1 (Required)

Type a nominal piping diameter for the first part of the bolted joint.

NPD 1 Units (Required)

Define a value that represents the system of units for the nominal piping diameter for the first part of the bolted joint.

Spec Name 2 (Required)

Define a unique class name for the second part of the bolted joint.

Revision Number 2 (Optional)

Type a revision number of the piping material class, as assigned by the specification writer, for the second part of the bolted joint. The combination of the piping material class and the revision number uniquely identify the data for this rule.

This property is under the control of specification writer. It is not modified or validated by the system.

Short Code 2 (Required)

Type a name for specific type of piping commodity, such as a gate valve.

Option Category 2 (Optional)

Define a value for the optional commodity selection enabled by the specification writer. If the piping designer does not explicitly select a piping commodity, then the default commodity option is used.

Option Code 2 (Optional)

Define a value to represent the category of the commodity option. The specification writer can specify additional custom values other than the system defined values.

NPD 2 (Required)

Type a nominal piping diameter for the second part of the bolted joint.

NPD 2 Units (Required)

Type a value that represents the system of units for the nominal piping diameter for the second part of the bolted joint.

Spec Name 3 (Optional)

Define a unique class name for the third part of the bolted joint.

Revision Number 3 (Optional)

Type a revision number of the piping material class, as assigned by the specification writer, for the third part of the bolted joint. The combination of the piping material class and the revision number uniquely identify the data for this rule.

This property is under the control of specification writer. It is not modified or validated by the system.

Short Code 3 (Optional)

Type a name for specific type of piping commodity, such as a gate valve.

Option Category 3 (Optional)

Define a value for the optional commodity selection enabled by the specification writer. If the piping designer does not explicitly select a piping commodity, then the default commodity option is used.

Option Code 3 (Optional)

Define a value to represent the category of the commodity option. The specification writer can specify additional custom values other than the system defined values.

NPD 3 (Optional)

Type a nominal piping diameter for the third part of the bolted joint.

NPD 3 Units (Optional)

Define a value that represents the system of units for the nominal piping diameter for the third part of the bolted joint.

Bolt Length (Required)

Type a value for the bolt length of the bolted joint assembly.

  • At least two parts are required to form a bolted joint assembly. Therefore, defining data for the third part in this rule is optional.

  • If the specified bolted joint assembly is not found in the defined rule or the rule itself does not exist, the bolt length should be computed using system preferred bolt length calculation, see Bolt Length Calculations.
