The Bolt Selection Filter For Nozzles node (the BoltSelectionFilterForNozzles sheet in the BoltSelection Filter for Nozzles Sample data.xls workbook) defines data for any nozzle that requires special bolting, for example, cap screws that are required at a flat face or a raised face flangeless nozzle. The special bolting for nozzles is selected from the Piping Specification by the equipment and nozzle tag numbers. It is only necessary to define this data for those few nozzles that require special bolting. You need not create data for every nozzle in the project.

Bolt Extension Option (Conditionally Optional)

Specifies 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. This field is required when Bolting Requirements is set to Reportable bolts are required. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the BoltExtensionOption sheet in the Codelist Number column.

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 Contractor Commodity Code (Optional)

Specifies the engineering contractor’s commodity code, if different from the client’s commodity code, for any optional substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts). Because the cap screw length (or tap end stud bolt length) is being computed, this commodity code cannot reflect the cap screw length (or tap end stud bolt length). You can choose to include the cap screw length (or tap end stud bolt length) as an embedded label in the material description, or determine the cap screw’s commodity code by the Cap Screw Length, Cap Screw Diameter, and Materials Grade using the Bolt Commodity Code Substitution rule. The remainder of the cap screw data will be determined from the piping commodity material control data and the bolt part data by the cap screw’s commodity code. Note that this commodity code may apply to a machine bolt. If this "cap screw" is determined to be a machine bolt by the value of the Bolt Type property in the bolt part data, an additional nut is reported with the machine bolt.

Cap Screw Diameter (Optional)

Specifies the diameter of any substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts), if applicable. If a value is not specified, the software assumes that the diameter is identical to the Bolt Diameter for the applicable drilling template. This property only represents the diameter of cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) when a partial substitution with cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) applies. A value here is not required for a complete substitution with cap screws (or tap end stud bolts).

Comments (Optional)

Specify an optional brief description of the commodity code.

Contractor Commodity Code (Required)

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

Equipment Tag Number (Required)

Specifies the model-wide unique identification name of the process equipment.

Fabrication Category (Optional)

Type the fabrication code that represents the responsibility for fabrication or erection. In the case of the complete substitution of bolts with cap screws, the Fabrication Category for the cap screws is determined by the Fabrication Category of the flanged fitting at the nozzle. In the case of the partial substitution of bolts with cap screws, the Fabrication Category for the cap screws is determined by the Fabrication Category of the bolts. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the FabricationType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Fabrication Requirement (Optional)

Select the fabrication requirement.

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.

Nozzle Tag Number (Required)

Specifies the unique identification for the nozzle located on the equipment defined in Equipment Tag Number.

Quantity of Cap Screws (Optional)

Specifies the number of machine bolts or stud bolts that are being replaced by cap screws or tap end stud bolts at each bolted end when Bolting Requirements is set to partial substitution. For non-thru bolted fittings, the number of cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) to be substituted for the machine bolts or stud bolts required by the drilling template is the same as the number of machine bolts or stud bolts to be replaced. However, for thru-bolted fittings with threaded holes, the number of cap screws required is twice the number of machine bolts or stud bolts being replaced. This value is not required for the complete substitution, where all bolts defined by the drilling template are replaced by cap screws (or tap end stud bolts). In that case, the software assumes that the quantity of cap screws (or tap end stud bolts) is identical to the number of bolt holes in the drilling template for each bolted end.

Supply Responsibility (Optional)

Specify 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.

Tapped Hole Depth (Optional)

Specify the depth of the tapped hole in the valve or fitting that requires substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts), if applicable. This value is used to compute the length of the cap screw. This value is not required for substitution cap screws at threaded holes or when the value of the Bolt Type property in the bolt part data indicates that the "cap screw" is actually a machine bolt. This property only represents the tapped hole depth of cap screws, when a partial substitution of cap screws applies and is not required for a complete substitution of cap screws.
