The PIPE-FLO® product line allows a user to input design and operational data, including equipment performance information. It then simulates the operation of that system by calculating the flows and pressures throughout. Customers use PIPE-FLO® simulations when:
- Designing a System: Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can design a fluid handling system that meets the production requirements of an industrial facility, supports the operational needs of a commercial facility, or delivers the services expected from the utility company.
- Operating a System: As a customer’s business fluctuates or evolves, the operational requirements of their fluid handling systems also change. Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can effectively manage changing production demands, continually identify system improvements that increase yield, and quantify the ROI for system optimization projects.
- Troubleshooting a System: When a fluid system is not operating as expected, either through a reduction of product quality, reduction of system capacity, or because of frequent maintenance events, a PIPE-FLO® simulation can identify the underlying hydraulic issues which are the cause, or a contributing factor to the failures.
