The SM1PipingTap sheet in the HVAC.xls workbook defines the reference data for one surface-mounted piping tap on an HVAC duct for instrument assembly.
Type the part number for the surface-mounted piping tap. Examples include:
SM1PTapSWhalfin - A surface-mounted piping tap that is socket-welded (represented by SW) and has .5" (represented by halfin) nominal piping diameter
SM1PTapFThalfin - A surface-mounted piping tap that is female-threaded (represented by FT) and has .5" (represented by halfin) nominal piping diameter
Part numbers for surface- mounted piping taps must be unique throughout the entire Catalog.
Type the component type for the piping tap.
Type a description for the piping tap. An example is Rect_Sleeve.
Type the symbol definition for the piping tap.
For the remaining properties, (i) indicates an integer corresponding to a nozzle number assigned to the piping tap. This method avoids a lengthy listing for all possibilities, like Nozzle(1):CrossSection, Nozzle(2):CrossSection, and Nozzle(3):CrossSection for three possible nozzles. When you type the nozzle properties in the workbook, substitute a number for i to assign the nozzle to the appropriate property.
Type the nominal piping diameter for the nozzle port.
Type the unit type for the nozzle port.
Type the coded end preparation for the nozzle. Examples of end preparations include Threaded, Screwed, Plain End, Welded, Bolted, Female, Male, and Ferule. In the reference data, a number represents each type of end preparation (for example, 1 for Threaded, 2 for Screwed and so on).
Type the coded end standard for the nozzle.
Type the schedule thickness for the nozzle.
Type the pressure rating for the nozzle.
Type the flow direction for the nozzle.
Type the piping point basis for the nozzle.
