Evaluating the performance of piping systems in compressible gas applications is challenging, especially where there are high velocities or significant changes in density. PIPE-FLO® Compressible makes critical analysis much more manageable. The easy-to-use interface allows users to draw piping system models quickly and enter design data for installed and planned equipment. PIPE-FLO® Compressible calculates pressure drops and balanced flow rates using a combination of convergence methods to rapidly close on an accurate solution.
Modeling and evaluating complex piping systems such as compressed air, steam, natural gas distribution, and pressure relief headers are possible with PIPE-FLO® Compressible. Detection of high velocity lines and choked flow is simplified and assists in identification of problem areas in your compressible gas system.
PIPE-FLO® Compressible can be used in all phases of a gas piping system’s lifecycle. It simulates the operation of piping systems transporting compressible fluids under operating conditions and eliminates bottlenecks in compressed gas systems while reducing operating costs.
PIPE-FLO® Compressible Features:
- Easily locate pressure drop on a pipeline
- Calculate sonic choking
- Design high pressure drop systems
- Design multiple scenarios
- Find system choke points
- Customized printed reports
- Manually control valves
