Example: Inserting a Specification Break
In the following example, the downstream flange is selected as the start fitting. The elbow fitting and the check valve on the branch side of the TEE fitting are selected as the end fittings. The specification displayed in Select Specification in the Specification Break dialog box is A7K.
1. A3A
2. Start fitting
3. End fittings
The pipeline specification after propagation changes as shown in the following figure:
1. A3A
2. A7K
In the previous example, if you do not select the check valve as one of the end fittings, all the fittings and segments in the branch side of the TEE fitting change to the new specification, A7K.
