Wilmslow, England (PRWEB) December 3, 2007
PipeFlow.co.uk today announced the release of PipeFlow™ Expert 2008 software , a major upgrade to the Microsoft Windows desktop application for designing and analyzing piping systems. Pipe Flow Expert 2008 is a premier software application that solves the fluid flows and pressure losses in both open and closed loop pipe networks.
“Piping system design software has never been so easy to use. Pipe Flow Expert 2008 is an ideal solution for anyone who designs, builds, operates or maintains a pipe system. It allows the user to easily visualize their system and calculate the resulting flows and pressures in each pipe,” said David Gardiner of PipeFlow.co.uk.
Pipe Flow Expert’s features include an intuitive user interface that is best-in-class and easy-to-use, a robust calculation engine that uses the Darcy-Weisbach method (with friction factors calculated from the Colebrook-White equation), an integrated fluid database with common liquid and gas properties, a pipe database with common pipe materials and sizes, and a fittings database with common valves and tees.
The latest release includes support for simple network licensing, allowing multiple users to run the software from a shared hard disk drive, without needing to install any other licensing software. The program is also available on USB Flash Drive and can be moved between machines via simple “Plug & Play”.
New functionality includes the ability to view results on the pipe schematic with the pipes and nodes drawn according to a color gradient that is specified against a particular calculation, such as the volume of flow in a pipe, the pressure drop in a pipe, the friction loss in a pipe or other results data. This provides an instant and visual analysis of the flows and pressures in the pipe system.
Other new features include Cut, Copy and Paste of multiple pipes and nodes, including transfer of these items between different piping drawings. Groups of items can also be updated on mass, to set common attributes such as elevations or pipe diameters.
“With each new release we try to add useful features that make it easier for our end users to analyse their pipe system, while keeping our user interface simple. When you combine this with our value-for-money pricing, we provide an unbeatable offer for most users.” Gardiner said.
The Pipe Flow Expert product is used by engineers that need a powerful, straightforward tool, which they can rely on to calculate flow rates, size pumps, check NPSHa, and find pressure losses in a pipe system.
