This section provides recommendations for setting up jacketed pipelines. This is just an example to convey one method. Your specific contract standards and requirements may dictate a different method than what is recommended here.

For jacketed piping, it is recommended that you create a different piping system for each jacketed pipeline. In the below sample graphic, the jacketed piping system is in Area-1-0201 and is named "Process Line-1-0201". Then under the piping system, create two pipelines , one pipeline for the core (named Area-1-02010000-P) and one pipeline for the jacket (named Area-1-02010000-S). The individual pipe runs and pipe parts will then appear under the corresponding pipelines for the core and jacket.

You need to create separate pipelines for the core and jacket for several reasons:

  • The core and jacket pipelines have different fluid requirements. This is a property on the pipeline object so two pipelines are needed for the two fluid requirements.

  • Creates unique pipeline ID's for isometric drawings to prevent confusion between the core and jacket isometric drawings.

Creating the Jacketed Piping System

  1. Switch to the Systems and Specifications task.

  2. Select the parent system for the jacketed piping system. In our example, the parent system is Area-1-201.

  3. Select New Piping System on the ribbon.

  4. Edit the name of the jacketed piping system if needed.

Creating the Core Pipeline

  1. Switch to the Systems and Specifications task if you are not already there.

  2. Select the jacketed piping system in the tree view.

  3. Select New Pipeline System on the ribbon.

  4. In the New Pipeline dialog box, specify the core description, sequence number, fluid requirement, and fluid type.

Creating the Jacket Pipeline

  1. Switch to the Systems and Specifications task if you are not already there.

  2. Select the jacketed piping system in the tree view.

  3. Select New Pipeline System on the ribbon.

  4. In the New Pipeline dialog box, specify the jacket description, sequence number, fluid requirement, and fluid type.

Creating Core Pipe Runs

In addition to selecting the piping specification, nominal diameter, and temperature and pressure settings, follow these steps when creating the core pipe runs using the New Pipe Run dialog box while in the Piping task.

  1. In the Standard category:

    1. Select the core pipeline in the Pipeline box.

  2. In the Category option, select Insulation and Tracing.

    1. In the Heat Tracing Requirement box, select Heat Traced.

    2. In the Heat Tracing Type box, select Jacketed Heat Tracing.

    3. In the Heat Tracing Medium box, select the medium in the jacket. This should match the fluid requirement and fluid type defined for the jacket pipeline.

    4. In the Heat Tracing Medium Temperature box, specify the medium temperature.

    5. Verify that Insulation Specification is set to Not Insulated.

Creating Jacket Pipe Runs

In addition to selecting the piping specification, nominal diameter, and temperature and pressure settings, follow these steps when creating the jacket pipe runs using the New Pipe Run dialog box while in the Piping task.

  1. In the Standard category:

    1. Select the jacket pipeline in the Pipeline box.

  2. In the Category option, select Insulation and Tracing.

    1. Verify that Insulation Specification is set to your insulation of choice, such as Fiberglass.

    2. In the Insulation Thickness and Insulation Temperature boxes, specify appropriate values.

    3. In the Heat Tracing Requirement box, select Not Heat Traced.
