PIPE-FLO® Compressible

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. 

PIPE-FLO® Compressible can be used in all phases of a gas piping system’s lifecycle:

  • Engineering design and equipment sizing and selection
  • Installation and commissioning to normal operation
  • Routine operational changes
  • Evaluating risk
  • Maintenance and system modification

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.


  • Simple to use
  • Applicable to any compressible gas system in a wide variety of industries
  • Allows evaluation of engineering design changes and saves money by providing an understanding of modification requirements before capital investments are made
  • Gives insight into high-pressure safety relief systems and the capacity required to prevent catastrophic events due to over-pressurization in gas systems
  • Simulates the operation of piping systems transporting compressible fluids including steam and gasses under a variety of expected operating conditions
  • Versatile tool to discover and eliminate bottlenecks in compressed gas systems and reduce operating costs
