PB 2013-002 Valves and Fittings not Recorded Correctly in DataLink Fittings Data Table

Bulletin: 2013-002

Date: 03-11-2013

Category: 2

Program affected: PIPE-FLO Professional 12

Approved by: JLS

Build numbers affected: 12.0.19520


In PIPE-FLO Professional 12, if there are duplicate entries on the Installed Valve & Fitting List for a Pipe (same number and type of V&F), only one entry is reported to the DataLink Fittings Data Table. This does not effects the accuracy of any calculations in PIPE-FLO, but does show up as a discrepancy in the list of installed valves and fittings in the Pipeline Report and Bill of Materials Report, as well as the list if extracted using DataLink.


  1. The user adds duplicate entries to the installed valves or fittings list for a pipe.
    (for example “1 x Butterfly” and “1 x Butterfly”)
  2. User generates a Pipeline Report or Bill of Materials Report
  3. The report displays only “1 x Butterfly” in the list of installed valves and fittings.


Add identical valves and fittings as a group rather than adding them to the pipeline individually. (ie: "2 x Butterfly" rather than two single valves).
