Nozzle Type 5 - Skew - PDS - Help

Plant Design System (PDS) Equipment Modeling (PD_EQP)


This straight nozzle is neither axial, radial nor tangential. It is tilted from both the vessel axis and the radial plane. The nozzle centerline intersects with the vessel axis.

(OR1) - Radial Plane Orientation

The rotation axis for this angle is the vessel primary. The target vector is the projection of the nozzle centerline on the radial plane.

(N2) - Distance from Origin to Flange along Nozzle Center Line

This is an unsigned distance measured along the positive direction of the nozzle centerline. Refer to the Unsigned Distances section, CASE 3.

(N3) - Axial Distance from Origin to Flange

This is a signed distance. A negative input indicates that the nozzle centerline points against the axial direction.
