Lines and line data are defined in the Process Data module since these definitions are usually the responsibility of process engineers. After you define line numbers, it is possible to associate instruments with the lines on which they are located.

  1. Click Tables > Lines.

  2. On the Lines dialog box, beside the Line type list arrow, click to open the Line Types dialog box and do the following:

    1. Click New to add a new data row and under Line Type, type Process.

    2. Click New to add another data row and under Line Type, type Utilities.

      The dialog box should appear as shown:

  3. Click OK to save the data and close the dialog box.

  4. On the Lines dialog box, from Line type list, select Process.

  5. Click New to open the Line Properties (New) dialog box.

  6. Add the following information:

    1. In the Line number box, type 4"-P-1501-11H.

    2. From the Pipe material list, select PLAIN CARBON STEEL (ANSIā€¦).

    3. From the Pipe standard list, select ANSI.

  7. On the Pipe Data Library dialog box, do the following:

    1. In the Find nominal size box, type 4 so that you can easily select 4 inches as the nominal size.

    2. Select the following pipe data:

      • Nominal Size: 4"

      • Pipe Schedule: 80

      • Internal Diameter: 3.826"

      • Wall Thickness: 0.3370"

    3. Click OK to close the Pipe Data Library dialog box and return to the Line Properties dialog box.

      All other pipe details are entered automatically and the Line Properties dialog box should appear as shown:

  8. Click OK to select the line settings and to return to the Lines dialog box.

  9. Add another line 4"-P-1502-11H with the same settings.

You can also create lines in the Process Data module.

The remaining objectives in this task deal with entering additional data in the supporting tables. These include Status, I/O Type, Location, Manufacturer, and Model.
