The Size Reduction Rule node (the SizeReduction sheet in the Sample Data Piping Specification.xls workbook) is an optional rule that defines the permissible size reductions for both concentric and eccentric reducers. For example, you might define rules that a 8"X4" size reduction is to use a single 8"X4" reducer, while a 6"X2" size reduction is to use a 6"X4" reducer and a 4"X2" reducer. You can also specify your preference for a size reduction when more than one solution is available. You can define exceptions for a particular piping materials class in the Size Reduction Per Spec.

First Size (Required)

Enter the first size of the size reduction to define.

First Size Units (Required)

Enter the units, mm or in for example, for the value you entered in the First Size column.

Fitting 2 First Size (Required)

Enter the first size for the second reduction fitting.

Fitting 2 First Size Units (Required)

Enter the units, mm or in for example, for the value you entered in the Fitting 2 First Size column.

Fitting 3 First Size (Optional)

Enter the first size for the third reduction fitting.

Fitting 3 First Size Units (Optional)

Enter the units, mm or in for example, for the value you entered in the Fitting 3 First Size column.

Fitting 4 First Size (Optional)

Enter the first size for the four reduction fitting.

Fitting 4 First Size Units (Optional)

Enter the units, mm or in for example, for the value you entered in the Fitting 4 First Size column.

Size Reduction Type (Required)

Enter a 1 if the size reduction rule you are defining is for concentric reducers. Enter a 2 if the size reduction rule is for eccentric reducers.

Size Reduction Preference (Optional)

Enter a number between 1 and 4 to indicate your solution preference order when more than one size reduction solution is defined. For example, a 24"x6" reduction can be done using a 24"x14" and a 14"x6", using a 24"x12" and a 12"x6", or using a 24"x10" and a 10"x6". Enter 1 as the default preference, enter 2 for your second choice, and so on.

Second Size (Required)

Enter the second size of the size reduction to define.

Second Size Units (Required)

Enter the units, mm or in for example, for the value you entered in the Second Size column.
