PipeFlow.co.uk (http://www.pipeflow.co.uk) today announced the release of PipeFlow™ Expert 2008 version 3.11 (http://www.pipeflow.co.uk/public/control.php?_path=/497/738), a major upgrade to the Microsoft Windows software for designing and analyzing piping systems. Pipe Flow Expert 2008 is a premier software application that models both open and closed loop pipe networks, calculates flow rates, pipe pressure drops, friction losses, pump operating points and much more.
Pipe Flow Expert's standard features include an easy-to-use intuitive user interface, a robust calculation engine that uses the accurate Darcy-Weisbach method for calculating pipe friction losses (with the Colebrook-White equation for calculating friction factors), 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.
Pipe Flow Expert 2008 version 3 also supports entry of data in mass flow rate, up to 9 different fluid zones within the pipe system, pressure regulating valves (PRVs), back pressure valves (BPVs), and includes a verification document which compares the results produced by Pipe Flow Expert against the known results for over 40 cases of published data.
"Flow and pressure loss calculations have never been so easy. Our Pipe Flow Expert software has an easy-to-use interface that lets users get up and running immediately. Pipe Flow Expert is simply an ideal software package for anyone who designs, builds, operates or maintains a pipe system. Version 3 provides unbelievable value and gives the user a simple way to analyze and visualize their pipe system, and enables them to easily calculate the fluid flows and pressures in each pipe." said David Gardiner of PipeFlow.co.uk.
Users get the ability to view the calculated results in spreadsheet format and also on a visual pipe drawing 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. The color coding and graphical representation of the system model provides for an instant visual analysis of the flows and pressures in the pipe system(Pipe Flow Expert visual analysis of flows and pressure drops).
"We get many positive comments on our Pipe Flow Expert interface and we place a high importance on keeping the software easy-to-use, even as we continue to add powerful new features. When you combine our best-in-class interface, value-for-money pricing, and powerful calculation engine, we become a compelling choice for most users." Gardiner said.
The Pipe Flow Expert software 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".
Pipe Flow Expert is used by a variety of engineers and companies, from individual design consultants through to large middle east oil companies; anyone that needs 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.
