The Instrument Class Data node (the InstrumentClassData sheet in the Instrument Data.xls workbook) defines the instrument class data. This data is based on size range and does not vary per piping materials class.

Alt Reportable Commodity Code (Optional)

Specify the contractor commodity code for an alternate reportable piping commodity that is created with the primary piping commodity on the basis of the piping materials class. In an isometric drawing, only the primary piping commodity is depicted graphically. The materials list includes the short description of both the primary piping commodity and the reportable piping commodity. The data for the reportable piping commodity includes a commodity code and the corresponding short and long material descriptions, plus the typical data that is reported for any other piping commodity.

Bolting Requirements (Optional)

Select the bolting requirement for the piping commodity. Valid codes are listed in parentheses. The following options are available:

  • Undefined (1) - The bolting requirement is undefined.

  • Bolting required (5) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of bolts determined by the bolted joint, but based on a special bolt extension option. If you select this option, you must define the Bolt Extension Option.

  • Complete substitution with cap screws for threaded holes (10) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the fitting itself instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation and represent a complete substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use this option when the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of threaded holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange.

  • Complete substitution with cap screws for tapped holes (15) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) are used for all bolt holes in this situation and represent a complete substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use this option when the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of tapped holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange.

  • Partial substitution with cap screws for threaded holes (20) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for threaded holes determined by the fitting itself instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted joint. This option represents a partial substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use this option to address the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a partial set of threaded holes with respect to the drilling template applicable to the mating flange, and also the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange, but only some of the holes are threaded.

  • Partial substitution with cap screws for tapped holes (25) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted joint. This option represents a partial substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use this option to address the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a partial set of tapped holes with respect to the drilling template applicable to the mating flange, and also the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange, but only some of the holes are tapped.

  • Bolts supplied with nozzle and not to be reported (30) - The piping commodity is supplied with the necessary bolts included, such that the applicable bolts should not be reported.

  • Reportable bolts not required (35) - A set of bolts is not applicable to any end of this piping commodity because all ends are non-bolted. This option is the default for any piping commodity without any bolted ends.

  • Complete substitution with cap screws for full threaded holes at second size end, where the cap screws only apply at the second size end (40) - The second size end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation. This represents a complete bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a complete set of threaded holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange. This option is not available for nozzles.

  • Complete substitution with cap screws for tapped holes at second size end, where the cap screws only apply at the second size end (45) - The second size end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes determined by the fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation. This represents a complete bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a complete set of tapped holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange. This option is not available for nozzles.

  • Partial substitution with cap screws for full threaded holes at second size end, where the cap screws only apply at the second size end (50) - The second size end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted joint. This option represents a partial bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a partial set of threaded holes with respect to the drilling template applicable to the companion flange, and also the situation where the smaller end of the reducing flange includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange, but only some of the holes are threaded. This option is not available for nozzles.

  • Partial substitution with cap screws for tapped holes at second size end, where the cap screws only apply at the second size end (55) - The second size end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes determined by fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted joint. This represents a partial bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This will address the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a partial set of tapped holes with respect to the drilling template applicable to the companion flange, and also the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange, but only some of the holes are tapped. This option is not available for nozzles.

  • Complete cap screw substitution for full threaded and tapped holes for each bolted end (60) - Each bolted end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes and also tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation. In other words, this represents a complete bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of threaded holes and also tapped holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange. This can be required, as an example, for a larger size asymmetrical lug body butterfly valve where tapped holes are required near the valve stem. This option is not available for nozzles.

  • Any through-bolted joint, where the Termination Subclass for one of the bolted ends indicates through-bolted end with bolt holes, but the Bolting Requirement property for the fitting at that same bolted end indicates a complete substitution of cap screws (or tap end stud bolts), the software considers it to be a bolted joint, not a through-bolted joint.

  • Although two or more through-bolted fittings may be involved in forming a through-bolted connection, the software assumes that only one through-bolted fitting exists for any situation where either complete substitution or partial substitution with cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) applies. Furthermore, whenever two or more through-bolted fittings form a through-bolted connection, the software assumes that the bolts extend through all the through-bolted fittings.

Cap Screw Engagement Gap (Conditionally Required)

Specify the total gap between the cap screw ends inserted into each threaded hole end. The engagement gap is used in the bolt length calculations for cap screws in threaded holes. Use this field when an engagement gap that is unique to a component is needed.

This engagement gap value is used for all cap screw diameters regardless of the cap screw diameter or the nominal piping diameter for the valve, or fitting, requiring the cap screws. If you do not specify a value here, then the default value for the piping specification is used.

Clamp Requirement (Conditionally Required)

Select whether the commodity requires a clamp if one or more mechanical ends apply. This option overrides the clamp query in the clamp selection filter when the value of the Termination Subclass is set to "Mechanical joint with clamp" or "Mechanical joint with clamp and hub or ferrule".

Contractor Commodity Code (Conditionally Required)

Specifies the contractor commodity code, which is the commodity code that is used during the design phase.

The Contractor Commodity Code and the Client Commodity Code properties both must be size- independent or size-dependent. One cannot be size-dependent and the other one be size-independent. In addition, both must include a schedule or neither must include a schedule.

Multisize Option (Conditionally Required)

Type a string to represent an optional instrument selection for multi-sized fittings when the first size and second size are inadequate.

For example, if two additional sizes (2" and 1") are required in addition to a first size of 6" and a second size of 4", the string that would represent the sizes would be 6x4x2x1. The software interprets the string to determine the second size, the number of sizes in addition to the first size and second size. The unit of measure for the first size, defined in the First Size Units column, is used for the string.

You can append the keywords Primary (primary size) and Secondary (secondary size) to the column headings for the nominal piping diameters at each end in the workbook for the part data to assign the size to a specific piping point instead of using the Multisize Option property. Fittings that require two sizes will be assumed to have the primary size assigned to the first piping point and the secondary size assigned to the second piping point. Multi-size fittings with three or more sizes must have the sizes assigned to the appropriate piping points by means of the multi-size option property. Fittings with exactly two sizes and three or more piping points may have the size assigned to the appropriate piping point by using these keywords.

Part Data Basis (Optional)

Specifies the code that represents the basis of the dimensional data defined in the piping instrument part data. Set this value to recognize those components that require special treatment in terms of interpreting the symbol dimensional data. For example, the symbol is designed on the basis of a face-to-face dimension. However, the manufacturer provides the face-to-center dimension. The symbol can be designed to react accordingly on the basis of the value of this property. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PartDataBasis sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Piping Note 1 (Optional)

Specify the standard notes that you want to associated with the specialty. Standard notes are defined in the Piping > Piping Specification > Notes node in the Catalog task and on the StandardNotesData sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook. If needed, you can customize this sheet to add additional piping note properties. For example, Piping Note 2, Piping Note 3, and Piping Note 4.

Quantity of Alt Reportable Parts (Optional)

Specifies the number of alternate reportable piping commodities to be reported per instance of the piping commodity. If you have defined a commodity code in the Alt Reportable Commodity Code column but do not define a value in this column, the software uses a default value of one.

Quantity of Reportable Parts (Optional)

Type the number of objects to be reported per instance of the piping specialty item. This value must be an integer.

Reportable Commodity Code (Optional)

Type the commodity code of the instrument that you want created with the primary commodity code item. For example, you may want safety covers or housings reported for material control but not represented graphically in the model. You would enter the commodity code of the safety cover here.

Reporting Type (Conditionally Required)

Type the reporting requirements code for the instrument. You can specify that the commodity is reported or not reported. An example of an instrument that you may not want reported is a spacer for a valve. You must order the valve, but need not order the spacer as the spacer comes with the valve. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ReportingType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Requisition Type (Required)

Type the requisition type code. If you set this option to "Stock with validation" (6), then the software uses the commodity specific service limits that are define in Piping Commodity Service Limits. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the RequisitionType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Second Size From (Conditionally Required)

Defines the lower bound of the next largest nominal piping diameter for which this instrument applies.

Second Size Schedule (Conditionally Required)

Specifies the short description that represents the schedule (or thickness) for the second size end of this instrument. This data is required only when the commodity code does not include schedule. Valid short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ScheduleThickness sheet in the Schedule Thickness Short Description column.

Second Size To (Conditionally Required)

Defines the upper bound of the next largest nominal piping diameters for which this instrument applies.

Second Size UOM Basis In Catalog (Conditionally Required)

Specifies the units of measure basis code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the CatalogUnitsOfMeasureBasis sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Second Size Units (Conditionally Required)

Specifies the units for the Second Size From and Second Size To columns. For example, you could enter in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Short Material Description (Required)

Type a description for the material. The software uses this description in the bill-of-materials part of isometric drawings, for reporting, and for visual feedback to the piping designer for design, construction, and fabrication.

Spec Name

Specify the piping materials class name.

Subst Cap Screw Contractor Comdty Code (Optional)

Type the contractor commodity code for the replacement cap screws.

Subst Cap Screw Diameter (Optional)

Type the diameter of the cap screw including the units. For example, type 0.5in or 1in.

Subst Cap Screw Quantity (Optional)

Type the number of machine bolts or studs that are being replaced by cap screws at each bolted end of the instrument.

For non-through bolted fittings, the number of cap screws to substitute for machine bolts or studs required by the drilling template is the same as the number of machine bolts or studs being replaced.

For through bolted fittings with threaded holes, the number of cap screws required is twice the number of machine bolts or studs being replaced.

This value is not required when all bolts defined by the drilling template are replaced by cap screws.

Supply Responsibility (Optional)

Specifies the code that represents the person responsible for supplying the object. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the SupplyResponsibility sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Tag Number (Conditionally Required)

Specifies a tag number for the instrument. Tag number is used for specific, one-of-a-kind instruments.
