Squeeze Off

The purpose of this trace is to determine whether pinching the pipes at selected locations will isolate an area. The result set returned by this trace depends on the type of the requested results defined by the user. If the user wants to see the graphics only, then the results highlight the outage area including the squeeze-off points. If the user wants the results as a selection set, then the results are added to the Selection tab and respect the Selectable Layer settings. See Configure Gas Tracing for set up procedure.
