How The Use Of One Fluid Flow Analysis Tool Can Replace Several Others

In June 2017, Engineered Software, Inc. was contacted by an international gas company intern seeking information on PIPE-FLO® Professional in hopes of highlighting the program’s capabilities in comparison to competitors. The project was to demonstrate PIPE-FLO® in a GSS Plant Design to showcase how the use of one fluid flow analysis tool (PIPE-FLO®) could replace Plant Flo, Cool Drop, Del Liquid and Del Gas. With the help of Engineered Software’s sales and marketing team, the intern was able to demonstrate the pros and cons of PIPE-FLO®.

Flow Rate & System Operations

Knowing the flow rate within a fluid piping system is one of the most useful measurements in understanding system operations. The equipment used to measure flow rates is typically maintained and calibrated by the plant instrumentation and control groups. Facility flow meters typically monitor custody transfer or are used as the primary elements of flow control circuit.

Using Overtime In Ship Deballasting Operation

Ship ballasting and de-ballasting are critical to a ship’s stability, and a major part of ship and port operations. Here, we examine the current procedures and potential issues that can arise when a quick turnaround in port is required. Through time-based modeling of the ship’s systems, new methods were used to analyze the feasibility of each scenario as well as ensure the systems were operating optimally. After rigorous testing, a new approach was developed to decrease time in port, increase system reliability/safety, and improve overall efficiency.

Proper Pump Selection: Avoid Oversizing Your Pumps

Proper pump selection is more important than ever, with drastic consequences on maintenance, reliability, and efficiency. The selection process remains difficult for average users, and even contracting the work out to a reputable engineering firm does not guarantee success. In this article, we will cover centrifugal pump design, common pitfalls in the selection process, and consequences of improper selection.
