The Piping Materials Classes Data rule (the PipingMaterialsClassData sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines the piping material classes to use in your piping specifications. Piping material class data is independent of nominal piping diameter and commodity items. A piping materials class defines a classification of components based on design data and service limits.

Approval Date (Optional)

Type the time or date the status of the piping materials class was approved.

Approved By (Optional)

Type the name of the person or group who approved the status of the piping materials class.

Automated Flange Selection Option (Optional)

Select enabled to activate the automated flange selection logic to distinguish between flanges inserted on plain piping versus fitting-to-fitting situations. Typically, you would enable this option for piping material classes that include slip-on flanges or lap-joint flanges. For more information, see Automated Flange Selection.

If disabled (5), the generic short code for the flange that is subject to automated flange selection is used for this piping material class.

If enabled (10), the software selects the generic short code for the flange for plain piping or selects the flange for a fitting based on where the flange is inserted.

Comments (Optional)

Type a brief comment describing the justification for the piping materials class status.

Design Standard (Optional)

Specify the design standard that you want to use in this piping materials class to calculate the piping wall thickness and the branch reinforcements. Valid design standard codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the DesignStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Examination (Optional)

Defines the standard to use for examinations, inspections, and testing. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Examination sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Fluid Service (Optional)

Type the intended fluid service for this piping materials class. You may want to include the physical state of the fluid. Examples are, Potable Water, High Pressure Steam, Underground Water, or Chilled Water. In the case of a jacketed piping specification, this property represents the fluid service for the core.

Gasket Requirement Override (Optional)

Specify the gasket override code for the piping material class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the GasketRequirementOverride sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Hyperlink To Human Spec (Optional)

Specify the location of the electronic version of the piping materials class. You can specify the location using the http:// protocol or by using a Universal Resource Location (URL) address (for example, \\server\share).

Jacket and Jumper Fluid Service (Optional)

Type the intended fluid service for jackets and jumpers in this piping materials class. You may want to include the physical state of the fluid. Examples are, Potable Water, High Pressure Steam, or Chilled Water.

Jacket Material Of Construction Class (Optional)

Select the material of construction class for the jacket. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsOfConstructionClass sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Jacket Materials Description (Optional)

Type a generic description of the material used for jackets in this piping materials class. An example is, CL150, Carbon Steel, RFFE, Trim 8, < 2" SWE, >= 2" BE. Do not include the intended fluid service or applicable corrosion allowance.

Jumper Material of Construction Class (Optional)

Select the material of construction class for the jumper. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsOfConstructionClass sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Last Modified On (Optional)

Type the time or date the status of the piping materials class was set.

Lining Material (Optional)

Select the type of lining material (for example, cement-mortar, concrete, epoxy, rubber, or plastic lining) required for the field lining of plain piping within this piping materials class. If you do not specify a value, the software assigns a default value of "Undefined". If you do specify a value, be sure to define values in Field Lining Thickness. Valid codes for this option are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the LiningMaterial sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Lining Requirements (Optional)

Specify whether field lining is required in this piping material class. If you set this to Lined, you must define information in the Field Lining Thickness rule.

Materials Description (Optional)

Type a generic description of the material used for this piping materials class. An example is, CL150, Carbon Steel, RFFE, Trim 8, < 2" SWE, >= 2" BE. Do not include the intended fluid service or applicable corrosion allowance. This property is used in reporting.

Materials Group (Optional)

Defines the material group for the materials class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Materials Type (Optional)

Defines the material type for the materials class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Materials of Constructions Class (Optional)

Select the material of construction class. This option is used for grouping similar piping material classes for the benefit of the specification writer in managing piping specifications. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsOfConstructionClass sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Piping Commodity Override Option (Optional)

Specify whether you want to disable (5), enable with no justification required (10), or enable with justification required (15) the ability of a piping designer to override the piping materials class to select a piping commodity manually.

This setting overrides the piping commodity override option setting on the Model Options node (DefaultProjectOptions sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) for this piping material class.

Piping Note 1 (Optional)

Specify the standard notes that you want to associate with the piping materials class. Standard notes are defined in the Piping > Piping Specification > Notes node or on the StandardNotesData sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook. If needed, you can customize this sheet to add additional piping note properties. For example, Piping Note 2, Piping Note 3, and Piping Note 4.

Piping Spec Status (Optional)

Defines the status of the piping materials class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PipingSpecStatus sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Purchase Length Basis Option (Optional)

Specify the basis on which the software determines the purchase length in the piping materials class. This setting is applicable to this piping materials class only. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PurchaseBaseLengthOptionSheet in the Codelist Number column.

This setting overrides the Purchase Length Basis Option setting on the DefaultProjectOptions sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook for this piping materials class.

Responsibility (Optional)

Type the name of the person or group responsible for specifying the status of the piping materials class.

Revision Number (Optional)

Type the revision number of the piping materials class. If you have enabled the Piping Spec Version Management Option in the Model Options node (DefaultProjectOptions sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook), the text that you type here is appended to the end of the piping specification name. For example, if the piping specification is originally named 1C0100, the piping specification with the revision is named "1C0100, Rev: <text>". You must change this revision number manually each time you make a change to a piping specification.

Spec Name (Required)

Type a name for the piping material class that you are defining. The software displays this name on the interface. All names must be unique.

Stress Relief (Optional)

Defines the stress relief standard to use for the piping materials class. Stress-relieving heat treatment reduces residual stresses resulting from bending and welding. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StressRelief sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Stress Relief Requirement (Optional)

Defines the stress relief requirement for the material class. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StressReliefRequirement sheet in the Codelist Number column. If you do not define a value, the software assigns 1 (Undefined) by default.

Washer Creation Option (Optional)

Specifies whether the software should create washers at a bolted joint. Type 5 to disable the creation of washers. Type 10 to enable the creation of washers.

Welding Procedure Practice (Optional)

Select the industry practice on which the Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is based.
