Knowing how to use a tool effectively separates the
skilled craftsman from the worker. PIPE-FLO Professional is easy to
use, but like any comprehensive software tool, there are
tools and tips that the basic tutorial cannot cover.
There are program features that will save you loads of
time while providing a clearer picture of how your
piping system operates. In our FLO-Master Seminars, our
instructors demonstrate a step-by-step approach to use
with PIPE-FLO Professional on your next piping project.
After attending a FLO-Master Seminar, you will be able to
take advantage of the latest program features, build
your system models faster, and tackle the most complex
fluid piping project. We also provide case studies, and
demonstrate how you can use PIPE-FLO Professional to design a more
efficient piping system.
The two-day seminar provides you with
a detailed understanding of how piping systems operate.
By simulating the interaction of pipelines, pumps,
components and controls throughout the system, you will
gain a greater knowledge of piping system devices and
how they operate as a system.

you can see just what you will learn.
FLO-Master Seminars will help you:
- Build a PIPE-FLO Professional model of your piping system in
- Understand fluid flow theory to gain an
understanding of the total piping system.
- Increase your proficiency in the use of PIPE-FLO
and become a valued resource to your company.
- Spend less time learning how to use the software
and more time evaluating piping projects.
- Maximize the use of PIPE-FLO Professional's program features
and increase your productivity.
- Course length is 2 days. First day: 8:30 am to
5:00 pm. Second day: 8:30 am to about 3:30 pm.
- Individual computers provided for hands-on
- Lunch and refreshments are provided.
- This training seminar qualifies for 15
Professional Development Hours (PDH) needed to meet
the continuing education requirements for
Professional Engineers in many states.
objective of FLO-Master seminars is to provide the skills needed
to effectively utilize PIPE-FLO Professional analysis software. Our emphasis is on
demonstrating a step-by-step approach that will enable you to design, analyze,
and troubleshoot fluid piping systems. Each attendee has use of a computer to
gain hands-on experience in using PIPE-FLO Professional (expanded version of Flow
of Fluids software) to model a variety of typical piping system.

Is this training right for me?
FLO-Master Seminars are ideal for those using the
PIPE-FLO Professional program to design, build, operate, and maintain
fluid piping systems. For over eighteen years, professionals involved in piping
projects have benefited from the FLO-Master Seminars. Both new and experienced
PIPE-FLO Professional users will gain from this class because it is as
much about piping system operation as it is about the software.
Attendees from all skill levels are invited to attend, and we guarantee you will
learn something new.
