Equipment: TANK DIA larger than 20000mm

Hallo everybody,

why it is not possible to create a TANK with DIA larger than 20000mm?
I am trying to model a tank DIA 28000 with one DN200mm nozzle but keep on getting an error.
Is there a way to do this using "Create equipment" command on the ribbon?

Kind regards

I think it's a metric issue (I came across it a while ago and lodge a report) so fingers crossed it's fixed for us metric users in the 2011 version.

I believe this is a bug in release 2010. The work around for this will be:
Create the tank with use of ordinary solids and add your nozzle location(include the nozzle).
Then convert your user equipment to equipment and then mark your nozzle location with the nozzle spec you need.
