Validation/Testing

Rigorous internal testing of the software.

Expertise Required

Engineering background or piping or duct design experience required to use software correctly. No special knowledge of computers required.

Users

Estimated 15,000+ current users worldwide.

Audience

Chemical, consulting, energy, mechanical and architectural engineers working for manufacturing. Utilities companies and research universities and research laboratories.

Input

Pipe or duct specifications, and components (pipes, fittings, pumps, valves, etc.) are drawn and entered into the graphical user interface. Fluid specifications available in catalog but user defined fluid option available.

Output

Tabular and graphical output of over 100 calculated variables.

Computer Platform

PC with Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista

Programming Language

C++

Strengths

More than 60 manufacturer's pump catalogs available for integration with the software. Easy to use and familiar graphical interface to design and calculate quickly and accurately. No system size limit. Complete representation of pump behavior with efficiency and NPSHA allowing users to size and select pumps based on their efficiency or preference and explore other possible energy efficient pumping designs with variable speed pump drives.

Weaknesses

Software only models steady-state flows, and should not be used for two-phase flows.
