You can set Selection Code values for gaskets and bolts. These codes allow you to insert specific gasket components and specific bolt components when placing flanged or clamped components in CADWorx Plant. Selection codes must be set on the bolt and gasket component in the project. Defining the Selection Code in the catalog for the gasket and bolt data tables only sets the defaults for the data tables, which you can then select in the project. You must have a value in the Selection Code box for the gasket and the bolt component for the software to correctly use the selection codes. If you do not have a value in the Selection Code box, but you have a value in the Applicable Gaskets list, or Applicable Bolts list, then the software does not insert a gasket or a bolt set on the component. When you assign a Selection Code to a bolt or gasket in the project, you can then assign that code to clamped or flanged components in the data tables or projects using the Applicable Gaskets, and Applicable Bolts lists. You can use the defaults in the catalog, or you can type a code in the Selection Code box of the New and Edit Component Pane in the project, to set a selection code for a particular gasket or bolt. You can set up selection codes in the following ways:

  • Create a new gasket or bolt data table, and then assign a Selection Code. Then, create a new coupling or flanged data table, and assign those selection codes to the component in the Applicable Bolts, and Applicable Gaskets boxes.

  • Set a Selection Code in an existing Bolt or Gasket data table, and then reselect that data table in any of the bolt or gasket components that contain it in the project. This populates the Selection Code in the New and Edit Component Pane. After that, you can select the selection codes in the Applicable Gaskets and Applicable Bolts options for flanges and clamps in the New and Edit Component Pane.

  • Select or type a Selection Code in a Gasket or Bolt component, and then assign that code to the Applicable Gaskets and Applicable Bolts options for flanges and clamps in the New and Edit Component Pane.

  • Set Applicable Gaskets or Applicable Bolts in a Flanged, Clamp, or Cam and Grove Coupling end type table, and then select that end type table in any component. The software then assigns that Applicable Gaskets code, and Applicable Bolts code to that component overriding any code contained in the data table set for that component. You must have a Selection Code set on the gasket or bolt in the project for this option to work.

You cannot set Applicable Bolts codes for Clamp, or Cam and Grove Coupling end types in the catalog.

To use the selection codes you must turn on the Apply Bolt Insertion Rule, and the Apply Gasket Insertion Rule.
