The Piping Commodity Service Limits Data node (the CommoditySpecificServiceLimits sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines the maximum temperature and pressure for a piping commodity, stock piping specialty, or stock instrument. This specification is especially needed when the maximum pressure or temperature for the object is not suitable for the full range of temperatures and pressures for which the applicable piping material class is intended.

The software considers these limits when the Selection Basis option for the commodity is set to "Fitting requires validation of commodity-specific Service Limits rule" (50) or "Fitting plus reportable piping commodity requiring validation of commodity-specific Service Limits rule" (55) in the Piping Commodity Filter.

For clamps, the software considers these limits when the Clamp Selection Basis option is set to "Clamp requires clamp- specific service Limits validation" (10) or "Clamp and implied gasket require clamp-specific service limits validation" (15) in the Clamp Selection Filter.

For stock instruments, the software considers these limits when the Requisition Type option is set to "Stock with validation" (6) in the Stock Instruments, Generic Tag Number or Stock Instruments, Unique Tag Number (the Instrument Class Data in the workbook).

For stock piping specialties, the software considers these limits when the Requisition Type option is set to "Stock with validation" (6) in Stock Piping Specialties, Generic Tag Number or Stock Piping Specialties, Unique Tag Number (the Piping Specialty Class Data workbook.

First Size (Required)

Specifies the size or thickness of the piping commodity for which you want to define service limits. This box is not required if the commodity code includes a schedule.

First Size Units (Required)

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

First Size Schedule (Optional)

Specifies the schedule practice code for the first size. Valid entries are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ScheduleThickness sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Industry Commodity Code (Required)

Specifies the industry commodity code of the object for which you are defining a service limit.

Industry Commodity Code Gasket (Optional)

Specifies the optional industry commodity code, if different from the contractor's or client's commodity code, for a gasket that is associated with a clamp. This commodity code can be size-independent or size-dependent. Usually, the service limits data for a clamp is dependent on the gasket type and the gasket material, which are defined in the gasket's commodity code.

Maximum Pressure (Required)

Specifies the maximum pressure for which this piping commodity, stock piping specialty, or stock instrument is intended. Include the units for measure, psi for example, when specifying this value.

Maximum Temperature (Required)

Specifies the maximum temperature for which this piping commodity, stock piping specialty, or stock instrument is intended. Include the units of measure, F or C for example, when specifying this value.

Multisize Option (Conditionally Required)

Type a string to represent an optional piping commodity 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 under First Size Units, is used for the string.

Second Size (Conditionally Required)

Specifies the size or thickness of the piping commodity for which you want to define service limits. This box is not required for piping commodities, stock piping specialties, or stock instruments with size-dependent commodity codes.

Second Size Units (Conditionally Required)

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

Second Size Schedule (Optional)

Specifies the schedule practice code for the second size. Valid entries are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ScheduleThickness sheet in the Codelist Number column.
