The Plate Flange Setback Distance node (the PlateFlangeSetbackDistance sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines the setback values for plate flanges based on the nominal piping diameter range.
This rule is used when the flange part's commodity sub class is set to "Plate flanges" (515) or "Reducing Plate flanges" (620).
Plate flanges with stub ends are not applicable to this rule.
End Preparation (Required)
Type the end preparation code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.
Pressure Rating Plate Flange (Optional)
Select the pressure rating for the plate flange. You must select a Rating Practice before you can make a selection here.
Materials Category (Required)
Define the classification for the materials grade of the plant flange.
Nominal Piping Diameter From (Required)
Specifies the pipe diameter lower bound for which the setback distance applies.
Nominal Piping Diameter To (Required)
Specifies the pipe diameter upper bound for which the setback distance applies.
Nominal Piping Diameter Units (Required)
Specifies the unit of measurement, in or mm for example, for the values in the Nominal Piping Diameter From and Nominal Piping Diameter To columns.
Setback Distance (Required)
Type the setback distance. Include the units of measurement, in or mm for example, when defining this value.
Rating Practice (Optional)
Select the pressure rating practice.
