Helix DEM Chute Design

Helix DEM Chute Design is an engineering design tool which combines CAD Drawing and 3D Modeling with a powerful calculation engine to predict the motion of particles in a transfer chute. The program allows the user to quickly build a model of a bulk material transfer chute station and then to perform calculations incorporating the Discrete Element Method of predicting particle motion through the chute. The motion of the particles is displayed in a 3 dimensional model on the computer screen and the design engineer can quickly add, modify or move the chute surfaces to allow the material to flow through the transfer efficiently. The program eliminates the need for the design engineer to guess what the material flow trajectories will be in the transfer.

Helix delta-Q Pipe Networks

Helix delta-Q is a powerful tool for engineers and equipment suppliers to quickly and easily design and optimise pipe networks for compressible and incompressible fluids. You can produce economically and technically sound pipe system designs in a very short time.

You can calculate friction losses and pressure drop in pipes and fittings for Liquids, Slurries and Gases. Model complex process flow pipe networks and solve for unknown flow rates and node pressures at the press of a button. Retrieve data from user accessible databases for Liquids, Slurries, Gasses, Pumps, Pipes and Fittings or add your own data.
