Solves for any number of pipes, nodes and pumps. Uses matrix algebra combined with
the Newton-Raphson method for quick, accurate convergence.
Drag and Drop Network components onto the screen for quick and easy network creation.
Add individual fittings to pipes using the fitting database or enter an estimate
of the total K value.
Calculate Fitting Losses using the standard K value method
or the Kf method which compensates for fluid viscosity and turbulence.
Comprehensive Databases for Pipes, Liquids, Slurries, Gasses
Setup individual Fluids and properties in each pipe - Model real world process flows
with different fluids in the same network.
Model what if scenarios - close off certain pipes and view the effects on the network.
Display the Network Calculation Results such as Pipe Flows, Velocity, Head Loss,
Node Pressure and many others on the Network Diagram.
Network Reports Display and Print the Network Pipe and Node Data and Calculation
Results in compact Tabular Form.
Export the Results to Spreadsheets like MS Excel �
Click on a Pipe to View the System Curve with the Network Duty Point shown.
Perform Complex Orifice Plate Calculations automatically merely by adding
an Orifice to a Pipe.
Add an Orifice plate to any
pipe, or specify a fixed pressure drop.
Include Networks with unknown pressure nodes and unknown flow nodes or any combination
of the two.
Model networks containing any number of pumps, reservoirs and spray nozzles and
Build a Model to simulate almost any Process Flow condition including pipes, fittings,
valves, pumps, orifice plates, vessels, sprinklers, nozzles, columns, flow and pressure
Model any number of pipes, junctions, pumps, vessels, sprinklers, nozzles,
tanks, intakes, and outlets as you like in one network.
Add individual fittings to each pipe or enter a global K value or Kf value for a
quick estimate of fitting losses.
You can have different fluids in the same network. For example, you may have a concentrated
slurry in one pipe flowing into a junction with a water pipe (or pipes) and dilute
slurry flowing through the network from that point onwards.
Pipe capital vs. operating costs are calculated
to assist you to make decisions on the most economical pipe size for an application.
Use any Engineering units you require - it is easy to add your own units,
or select Metric, SI or English units supplied with the program.
The program is supplied with Sample files and on-line Help to get you
started quickly and easily.
