The jacket pipe and components are placed in the jacket pipeline on top of the core pipeline using key locations of core pipe and components as placement aids. The placement of pipe and components in the jacket pipeline can be awkward because you are placing them sometimes at unnatural connect locations. The easiest method for modeling the jacket pipeline is to start at one end of core pipeline and work towards the other end. Be sure to use the Edge on solids and Tools > PinPoint commands to help with the exact placement of the jacket pipe and components.

When routing the jacket pipes and components, be very careful not to select any of the core pipe or components as a route end point. If you do, you will create a branch between the core and the jacket pipe runs. This branch will be sent to the To Do List because the branch run (the jacket) will be larger than the header run (the core).

One way to model the jacket piping system is shown below (using a transparent view style). The jacket pipe is welded to the back of the core flange.

You can place a jacketed pipe to the back of a core flange using Edge on solids.

The Edge on solids SmartSketch3D method works well when routing between mated flanges or between mated flanges and an inline component such as a valve.

  1. Click Tools > Options.

  2. Select the SmartSketch3D tab.

  3. Verify that the Edge on solids option is selected, and then select OK.

  4. Start the Route Pipe command.

  5. Select the starting location of the jacketed pipe. Make sure that only the Projection 3D SmartSketch3D glyph appears when you click otherwise you may accidentally connect to the core piping.

  6. Select the ending location of the jacketed pipe. Again, make sure that only the Projection 3D glyph appears.

You may want to use the Tools > Add to SmartSketch List to restrict the available SmartSketch3D relationships to just Projection 3D.

Another way to model jacket piping is to terminate the jacket prior to the flange or valve with a reducer as shown below. In either case, the details dictated by the jacket system should be followed.

Jump over piping at core pipe flanges is placed in the jacket pipeline as branch points. The heating medium inlet to the jacket and a jump over at a flanged connection are shown below. The jacket and jump over piping are in the jacket pipeline.

Jump over connections at valves can be modeled by terminating the jump over connection in space at the required locations on the valve. As an alternative, you can use the Place Tap command to tap the valve.

As shown in the below graphic, the remarks field of the terminator, cap or 'end' may be used to note the connection. Also, use the remarks field of the internal valve to refer to the jump-over connection, thereby completing the cross reference between the two isometrics.

When you route a new pipe run from a third port of a jacket flange that is inserted on a core pipe run, the software by default considers the new pipe run as a jacket pipe run and creates a relationship between the core and jacket pipe run. This association is reported in isometric drawings to support the references between core and jacket pipe runs.

For the core pipe run, make sure that the Pipe Run Type property is set to Core Pipe Run.

Add/Remove Core Run Association

  1. Select Piping Runs in the Locate Filter.

  2. Select the jacket pipe run in the graphic view.

  3. Click Select a Core Run to Add or Remove on the Edit Pipe Run ribbon.

    If the core and jacket pipe runs are already associated, the associated core run is highlighted in white.

  4. Select the core pipe run to add or remove.

  5. Click Finish.

Add/Remove Jacket Run Association

  1. Select Piping Runs in the Locate Filter.

  2. Select the core pipe run in the workspace.

    If the core and jacket pipe runs are already associated, the associated jacket run(s) is highlighted in white.

  3. Click Select a Jacket Run(s) to Add or Remove on Edit Pipe Run ribbon.

  4. Select the jacket pipe run(s).

  5. Click Finish.
