The Pipe Stock node (the PipeStock sheet in the Piping Catalog.xls workbook) defines the pipe parts that you want in your catalog.

Although Pipe Stock looks like a standard part class, it is in fact a system class. Therefore, any custom attributes that you want to add to the Pipe Stock class need to be made using the Custom Class Interface List sheet. For more information about custom interfaces, see the main Reference Data Guide.

Commodity Type

Type the piping commodity type short description or the corresponding codelist value. Valid codes and short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PipingCommodityType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Density

Specify the material density including the units, for example: 490lbm/ft^3 or 7856kg/m^3.

Dry Weight per Unit Length (Optional)

Enter the dry weight (empty or shipping weight) of the pipe stock or tubing per unit length. This represents the dry weight per unit length for the pipe barrel of flanged or mechanical joint pipe.

Dry Weight for End 1 (Optional)

Specifies the dry weight (empty or shipping weight) of end 1 of the pipe stock, if not plain end piping.

Dry Weight for End 2 (Optional)

Specifies the dry weight (empty or shipping weight) of end 2 of the pipe stock, if not plain end piping.

End Preparation

Enter the end preparation code for the part port. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.

End Standard (Required)

Enter the end standard code for the part port. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Geometric Industry Standard (Required)

Enter the code that represents the source used in the preparation of the catalog data applicable to the pipe stock. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the GeometricIndustryStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Graphical Representation Or Not

Specify whether the part should appear in the model.

Industry Commodity Code

Type a commodity code for the pipe. The software uses this commodity code to find the pipe in the parts catalog. This code must be unique across the catalog.

Lining Material

Type the code that defines the lining material, if any, for the part. Examples of lining material include epoxy, rubber, and plastic. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the LiningMaterial sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Manufacturing Method

Specifies the optional manufacturing method code for the pipe. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ManufacturingMethod sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Material Grade

Enter the material grade code for the part. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialGrade sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Maximum Pipe Length

Specify the maximum pipe length which can be purchased including the units, for example: 20ft. See Purchase Length below for more information.

Minimum Pipe Length

Specify the minimum pipe length which can be purchased including the units, for example: 8.5in. See Purchase Length below for more information.

NPD (Required)

Type the nominal piping diameter for the end. If both ends have the same NPD, you still must enter the same NPD value in both the NPD[1] and NPD[2] columns.

NPD Unit Type (Required)

Specify the units for the NPD column. For example, type mm or in.

Piping note 1

Specify the standard notes that you want to associate with the pipe stock.

Pressure Rating (Optional)

Enter the pressure rating short description for the part port. Valid short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PressureRating sheet in the PressureRating ShortDescription column.

Purchase Length

Specifies the pipe length to use when computing lengths of purchase length pipe (for example, flanged lined pipe or ductile iron mechanical joint pipe.) This pipe is typically purchased in a fixed length, for example, 20 feet. In some cases, the manufacturer provides a minimum length and a maximum length which you can set in the Maximum Pipe Length and Minimum Pipe Length cells. If specified, these lengths are used in the algorithm for computing the quantity and lengths of purchase length pipe for a given spool.

Be sure to include the units, for example 6m or 20ft. If you do not specify a purchase length, the software uses the Maximum Pipe Length value for the purchase length.

Schedule Thickness (Optional)

Type the schedule thickness short description for the part port. Valid codes and short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ScheduleThickness sheet in the Schedule Thickness Short Description column.

Surface Preparation

Specifies the optional surface preparation code for the pipe. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the SurfacePreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Water Weight per Unit Length (Optional)

Specifies the water weight of the pipe stock or tubing per unit length. However, this value is computed automatically in most cases and it is not always necessary for the specification writer to enter a value for the water weight per unit length. By definition, the water weight represents the sum of the dry weight (empty or shipping weight) and the weight of water within the fitting (pipe stock in this case).

The weight of water is computed automatically as the product of the density of water and the volumetric capacity per unit length, where the volumetric capacity per unit length of the pipe stock or tubing is computed as the product of the unit length and the cross-sectional area of the opening in the pipe stock, as represented by the difference between the outside diameter and the wall thickness, or as the product of the unit length and the cross-sectional area represented by the inside diameter.

Weight Per Unit Length

Specifies the weight per unit length of the pipe, for example: 1.68lbm/ft or 28.6lbm/ft. You should specify the weight per unit length if you do not specify a density value.
