This appendix contains the common properties that you will see when looking at Equipment parts under the main Equipment node in the tree view.

Name

Enter the part number for the equipment part. The keyword Name must be respected in the spreadsheet, but it is actually equivalent to the PartNumber. The software uses the part number at placement when the part name is automatically generated. An example is BA106E 42309-1.

All part numbers must be unique across the entire catalog.

PartDescription

Type a description for the equipment part. An example is Centrifugal Pump, 10" suction, 8" discharge.

MirrorBehaviorOption

Type the mirror behavior code for the horizontal vessel.

ReplacementPartNumber

Specify the replacement part number for the equipment part.

ProcessEqTypes(i)

Type the coded process equipment type for the part. For example, 365 is the equipment type code for a Vertical centrifugal pump.

SymbolDefinition

Type a definition of the Visual Basic symbol you are creating for the equipment part. An example is SP3DVesselwithSkirtAsm.CVesselWSSym.

Definition

Type a definition of the Visual Basic class you are creating for the Custom Assembly Definition for an equipment part. An example is SP3DVesselWSkirt.Asm.CVesselWSDef.

UserClassName

Sets the user name for the part class. You can use this field to give more meaningful names to the user classes, if necessary. This name appears in the Catalog browser.

OccClassName

Sets the occurrence name for the part class. This name appears on the filter dialog boxes in the software.

SymbolIcon

Specifies a graphic file for the part class. You can view this graphic in the Catalog task interface or on a Properties dialog box in the software.

Dry COG X

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the x-axis when the part is empty.

DryWeight

Enter the empty weight of the part. Be sure to specify the units when entering this value.

WaterWeight

Enter the water weight of the equipment part. Be sure to specify the units when entering this value.

For Equipment, the Weight and CG property "Wet Weight" is the sum of Dry Weight and Water Weight. The dry weight and water weight values are catalog properties entered on the part sheet for the equipment.

DryCOGY

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the y-axis when the part is empty.

DryCOGZ

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the z-axis when the part is empty.

WaterCOGX

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the x-axis when the part is filled with water.

WaterCOGY

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the y-axis when the part is filled with water.

WaterCOGZ

Type the center-of-gravity location for the equipment part along the z-axis when the part is filled with water.

For the remaining properties, (i) indicates an integer corresponding to a nozzle number assigned to an equipment part. This method avoids a lengthy listing for all possibilities, such as Nozzle(1):EndPrep, Nozzle(2):EndPrep, and Nozzle(3):EndPrep for three possible nozzles. When you type the nozzle properties into the workbook, substitute a number for (i) to assign the nozzle to the appropriate property.

Nozzle(i):NPD

Type the nominal piping diameter for the particular nozzle connection. Unless you specify otherwise, the software defines nozzle 1 as the primary nozzle.

Nozzle(i):NPDUnitType

Specify the units for the nominal piping diameter of the nozzle. For example, type mm for millimeters or in for inches.

Nozzle(i):EndPrep

Type the coded end preparation for the nozzle connection.

Nozzle(i):EndStandard

Type the coded end standard for the nozzle connection.

Nozzle(i):ScheduleThickness

Type the schedule thickness (wall thickness) short description code for the nozzle. If you enter the wall thickness directly, include the units. For example, type 7mm.

Nozzle(i):PressureRating

Type the coded pressure rating for the nozzle connection.

Nozzle(i):FlowDirection

Type the coded flow direction for the nozzle. Specifying the correct flow direction code for each part port is very important, because the software automatically orients the part to the flow direction of the pipe or port to which the part is connected.
