Displays and defines the general properties of the selected elbow or pipe bend.

Turn features inherit some properties from the parent pipe run. If you change the pipe run property, the corresponding turn properties also automatically change.

Pipe turn feature properties are divided into several different categories: Standard, Insulation and Tracing, and Surface Treatment and Coating. Select the category that you want to define values for by using the Category option.

Standard

Pipeline

Displays the name of the parent pipeline. This property is read-only.

Pipe Run

Specifies the pipe run to which the turn belongs.

<Load More Runs> loads all the runs that belong to the parent pipeline system. This option is not available after you load all the runs, or if the parent pipeline system has less than 200 runs.

More displays the Select Pipe Run Dialog Box. Select More to select a pipe run that is associated with a different pipeline. For more information, see Select Pipe Run Dialog Box.

Specification

Specify the active pipe specification for the turn. All the pipe specifications that are allowed for the System parent of the pipe run display for selection. If appears in the box, the pipe specification is inherited from the pipe run to which the turn belongs. If the icon does not appear, and you want to use the pipe specification from the pipe run, select Use Run Specification.

Nominal Diameter

Specify the nominal diameter (NPD) of the turn. If appears in the box, the NPD for the turn is inherited from the pipe run to which the turn belongs. If the icon does not appear, and you want to use the pipe specification from the pipe run, select Use Run NPD. If you have manually selected the part, the NPD of the selected part appears and cannot be changed.

Type

Displays the types of turns allowed by the selected Specification and Nominal Diameter. Turns are listed by short codes. You can change the turn type if needed. If you have manually selected the part, this box displays Part selected manually and cannot be changed.

Option

Displays a list of available turns. The software generates this list based on the pipe specification, the NPD, and the short code you selected in the Type box. For example, if you selected a 90E Default in the Type box and more than one elbow works in this pipe run, the elbows appear here for selection. If you have manually selected the part, this box displays Part selected manually and cannot be changed.

Base Part Name

Displays the part name for the turn. The part number is selected by the software using the pipe specification guidelines. Select the Select Manually option to override the pipe specification, and select the part number from the catalog. If you select a part manually, the Nominal Diameter, Type and Option properties are disabled.

Angle

Displays the angle of the turn feature. The angle is measured from the imaginary extension of the run.

Bend Radius Multiplier

Specifies the bend radius multiplier for the selected bend. This overrides the default bend radius multiplier defined in the piping specification. This field is not available unless the Pipe Bend Radius By User option is set to Pipe Bend Radius By User Is Enabled in Catalog. You can find the option in Catalog under the Piping > Piping Specification > Model Options node in the tree view.

Correlation Status

Specifies whether the object has been correlated to an object in a P&ID. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationStatus select list.

Correlation Basis

Specifies whether the object is correlated to a P&ID object. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationBasis select list.

  • Correlate Object indicates that the object has a correlating object in a P&ID.

No correlation is required indicates that the object does not have a correlating object in a P&ID. Correlation Approval Status

Specifies whether the object is approved with discrepancies in the three-dimensional data compared with design basis data. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationApprovalStatus sheet in the AllCodelist workbook.

  • Topology mismatch approved indicates that the object topology mismatch can be ignored.

  • Data and Topology mismatches approved indicates that the object data and topology mismatches can be ignored.

  • None indicates that you do not approve a mismatch.

Insulation and Tracing

Insulation Specification

Specifies the insulation specification for the object. If Inherited Properties or Spec displays in the box, the insulation specification for the object is inherited from the pipe run to which the object belongs.

Defines which insulation specifications are available for which systems in System and Specifications. Insulation specifications are defined in the reference data.

  • Not Insulated disables the remaining insulation properties.

  • User Defined indicates that you can specify the remaining insulation properties using custom settings.

  • More displays a dialog box so that you can select an insulation specification from the reference data. The software then automatically enters information from that insulation specification.

Insulation Purpose

Specifies the purpose of the insulation. If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Specification box, you cannot change the information in the Insulation Purpose box. However, if Insulation Specification is manually defined, you can select the purpose of the insulation in this box. If Insulation Specification is a selected reference data insulation specification, the software reads the purpose from the insulation specification from the reference data and displays it here.

To change the options on the list, edit the Insulation Purpose select list in Catalog.

Insulation Material

Specifies the material of the insulation.

  • Piping - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Specification box, you cannot change the value in the Insulation Material box. However, if you manually entered the insulation specification, you must provide a corresponding insulation material as per the specification. If you selected an insulation specification from the available list, the software automatically displays the corresponding material as per the specification.

  • HVAC - If you select Not Insulated, you cannot change the information in Insulation Thickness.

Select More to select an insulation material from the Catalog. To change the options on the list, edit the Insulation Material select list in Catalog.

For more information, see Select Insulation Material Dialog Box.

Insulation Thickness

Specifies the thickness of the insulation.

  • Piping - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Specification box, you cannot change the value in the Insulation Thickness box. However, if you manually entered the insulation specification, you must provide a corresponding insulation thickness value as per the specification. If you selected an insulation specification from the available list, the software automatically displays the corresponding thickness value as per the specification.

HVAC - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Material box, this property is unavailable.

Insulation Temperature

Specifies the temperature. Include the temperature unit of measure (K for Kelvin, F for Fahrenheit, or C for Celsius for example) when specifying this value.

Heat Tracing Requirement

Specifies whether the equipment is heat-traced. To change the options on the list, edit the Heat Tracing Medium select list in Catalog.

Heat Tracing Type

Specifies the type of heat-tracing. To change the options on the list, edit the Heat Tracing Medium select list in Catalog.

Heat Tracing Medium

Select the heat-tracing medium to apply to the object. If you want to add, edit, or remove values that are available for selection, edit the Heat Tracing Medium select list in the Catalog task.
