Pipe-flo® product line

The PIPE-FLO® product line allows a user to input design and operational data, including equipment performance information. It then simulates the operation of that system by calculating the flows and pressures throughout. Customers use PIPE-FLO® simulations when:

  • Designing a System: Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can design a fluid handling system that meets the production requirements of an industrial facility, supports the operational needs of a commercial facility, or delivers the services expected from the utility company.
  • Operating a System: As a customer’s business fluctuates or evolves, the operational requirements of their fluid handling systems also change. Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can effectively manage changing production demands, continually identify system improvements that increase yield, and quantify the ROI for system optimization projects.
  • Troubleshooting a System: When a fluid system is not operating as expected, either through a reduction of product quality, reduction of system capacity, or because of frequent maintenance events, a PIPE-FLO® simulation can identify the underlying hydraulic issues which are the cause, or a contributing factor to the failures.
What’s New in PIPE-FLO® Professional 16.1?
  • Added a Flow Meter Sizing feature to calculate the diameter for balancing orifices and flow meters per ASME standards
  • Added a Pipeline Valve & Fitting K, Cv, Kv Calculator to estimate the performance of fittings from flow and pressure drop measurements
  • Bug fixes and performance optimization for faster editing and quicker solutions
  • Numerous UI improvements, including:
    • Added a Gradient Color Legend to the FLO-Sheet Report
    • Unit selectors to property grid for device design data fields
    • Automatically switch to the newly created Lineup
    • Default text orientation set to horizontal
  • Upgrade to v16.1 here (for current v16 customers only)
