The Bolt Selection Filter node (the BoltSelectionFilter sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines selection rules for the studs, machine bolts, and cap screws used for bolted joints in the model. Selected bolts should conform to the design specifications defined in the flange design. You must ensure that the correct material grade is selected to match the recommended bolting temperature and stress ranges.

Typically, a piping materials class requires only one bolt; therefore, it is not necessary to specify the bolt in the bolt selection filter on the basis of the end preparation, end standard, and pressure rating for either bolted end. It is necessary to specify the bolt on the basis of the size range. You can choose to include two or more bolts based on a maximum temperature. A maximum temperature is required for bolts for which the bolt material is not suitable for the full temperature range of the piping materials class.

If the piping materials class includes the possibility of a bolted joint with different pressure ratings on each side, but identical drilling templates, you must also base each bolt within the bolt selection filter on the end preparation, end standard, and pressure rating for both bolted ends.

If the piping materials class includes a bolted fitting, such as a wafer butterfly valve, that requires a complete substitution with cap screws, the commodity code for the cap screw is determined on the basis of the specific fitting from the piping commodity material control data. It is not necessary to specify the cap screw in the bolt selection filter.

If the piping materials class includes thru-bolted fittings, the bolt selection filter must include the applicable combinations of non-thru-bolted ends and the thru-bolted ends as the means to determine the type of bolt.

If you define any records using this rule, the software only uses this spec break rule to check for the connection parts at the spec break condition. You must define all the possible combinations or records that can be encountered in the model for the spec break condition. If at least one entry is defined in the rule, then the software does not check for the connection parts in the selection filters as it would in the default behavior.

Alternate End Preparation (Optional)

Type the end preparation code for the other end when a second end preparation applies to the bolted joint, for example, small-grove-face lap-flanged end. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Alternate End Standard (Optional)

Type the other end standard code when a second end standard applies to the bolted joint. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Alternate Pressure Rating (Optional)

Type the other pressure rating code when a second pressure rating applies to the bolted joint. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PressureRating sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Bolt Extension Option (Optional)

Enter the bolt extension option code. The code is used in determining the length of the exposed threads for the bolt length calculation for both studs and machine bolts from the Generic Bolt Data. The bolt extension also includes any additional length required for stud tensioners. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the BoltExtensionOption sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Bolt Option (Conditionally Required)

Type the bolt option code to use when the piping designer does not select a bolt type. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the BoltOption sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Comments (Optional)

Specify an optional brief description of the commodity.

Contractor Commodity Code (Required)

Type the contractor commodity code, which identifies the bolt that you want to use from the Bolt Part Data Sheet.

End Preparation (Optional)

Type the end preparation code for the bolted joint. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.

End Standard (Optional)

Type the end standard code for the bolted joint. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Fabrication Category Override (Optional)

Type the fabrication code. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the FabricationType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Lubrication Requirements

Select the lubrication requirements code for the bolt. Valid codes are listed in AllCodeLists.xls on the BoltLubricationRequirements sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Maximum Temperature (Optional)

Specify the maximum temperature the bolt is intended for in this piping material class. You must specify the maximum temperature if the bolt is not intended for the full temperature range of the corresponding piping material class.

Nominal Diameter From (Required)

Define the lower bound of the largest nominal piping diameter for which this bolt applies.

Nominal Diameter To (Required)

Define the upper bound of the largest nominal piping diameter for which this bolt applies.

NPD Unit Type (Required)

Specify the units for the Nominal Diameter From and Nominal Diameter To columns. For example, type in for inches or mm for millimeters.

Piping Note 1 (Optional)

Specify the Standard Notes that you want to associate with the filter. Standard notes are defined in the Piping > Piping Specification > Notes node or 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.

Pressure Rating (Optional)

Type the pressure rating code for the bolted joint. This property defines the envelope of pressure to which the bolted joint may be subjected. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PressureRating sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Priority (Optional)

Type the priority value that this bolt should have when the software selects bolts for a bolted joint at a piping specification break, and the bolt requirements are different between the two piping materials classes. The lower the number, the higher the priority is for the bolt.

Spec Name (Required)

Type the name of the piping material class for which the bolt is intended. The piping materials class that you enter must be defined on the Piping Materials Classes.

Supply Responsibility Override (Optional)

Type the supply responsibility code. The supply responsibility code identifies the party responsible for supplying the commodity. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the SupplyResponsibility sheet in the Codelist Number column.
