Trusted WorldWide, Reliable Flow & Pressure Drop Calculations Software
Pipe Flow Expert used in over 75 countries worldwide
Our range of Pipe Flow software programs are used by engineers in over 100 countries worldwide. Our premier Pipe Flow Expert application alone is used in over 75 countries.
Engineers ranging from individual consultants through to large middle east oil companies trust Pipe Flow Expert to provide the flow and pressure loss calculation results they need.
I have performed a data match with a small diameter pipe system... the flow rates at two fixed pressure drop values matched perfectly! Thanks again for your excellent support. Your detailed answers to my questions has impressed our engineering department, including our company president.
Verification of Flow & Pressure Calculation Results
Pipe Flow Expert has a robust and reliable calculation engine that "solves" your system according to the governing laws of flow continuity and energy conservation. The final flow and pressure results are verified by a second algorithm that re-calculates the pressure at each node based on the pressure at each connected node minus the pressure loss through the connecting pipe for the given flow result.
This verification process checks that the pressure results at each node calculate to the same value irrespective of which path through the network is used for the calculation, and hence this validation confirms the accurate solution of the pipe network.
Pipe Flow Expert Software Applications and Industries
Pipe Flow Expert is used by clients in a variety of industries including aerospace, chemical processing, education, food and beverage, general engineering, mining, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, power generation, water and wastewater processing.
It will solve both open and closed loop systems with multiple pumps in series or in parallel. It can handle multiple supply tanks and in-flows, multiple discharge points and take-offs, multiple components and fittings, including bespoke items with their own flow versus pressure loss data, and in addition it can cater for up to 9 different fluid zones within a system (but it does not calculate two-phase flow; the user must specify the fluid density and viscosity data for each fluid zone, or select a fluid from the built in fluid database).
Powerful Pipe Network Analysis, See How Your Pipe System Operates
When designing a new pipe system or analyzing an existing piping network, it is critical to understand the interaction of pipelines, controls, pumps and other components.
Our Pipe Flow Expert fluid flow analysis software will allow you to design, troubleshoot and optimize your fluid piping systems by providing a clear view of how your piping system operates. Pipe Flow Expert provides insightful visual results and solutions to even the most complex piping systems.
After using Pipe Flow Expert for a couple days, it seems like a wonderful piece of software! It's very easy to use! We look forward to completing our design and moving forward with the project.
Visual Results on the Piping Schematic with Interactive On-Drawing Solution Data
Detailed Flow and Pressure Results are shown on the Pipe System Drawing
When the piping design is solved the solution values are shown on the pipe schematic and the units to be displayed for any particular calculations, such as flows, pressure, friction losses, etc, can be chosen individually. Whether you are in the USA, Europe, Africa or Australia, you can select your local unit of choice for any item.
Users get to see the calculated results on the actual pipe system drawing where the color coding and graphical representation of the piping model gives them an instant visual analysis of their piping design, the flow rates, the pressure losses, and the operating points of their pumps.
Pipes and nodes can be drawn against a color gradient that is specified for a particular calculation, such as the volume of flow in a pipe, the pressure drop in a pipe, the friction loss in a pipe or other results data, making it easy to highlight and instantly see any problem areas.
Easy Hover and Show for Individual Pipe and Component Results Data
To show more detailed information about a specific item on the Results Drawing, simply move the mouse to hover over the item and a pop-up panel appears that lists all of the associated data and calculation results.
Detailed Spreadsheet Style Results with One-Click Import to Excel
Results in Tabulated Spreadsheet Format
When the user wants to see the calculation results in a tabulated list, the PipeFlow Expert results can be viewed on the Results Grid in spreadsheet format. The Results Grid and the Pipe System Drawing are interactive and clicking on an element in one of these causes the same element to be highlighted on the other. This makes it very easy to analyse individual items and problem areas within a piping design. The software provides an easy 'select and zoom to' capability that allows selection of a row on the Results Grid and instant 'Zoom to' functionality, which displays and shows the selected item in the centre of the pipe system drawing.
Export Results to Excel
All of the data from the Results Grid can be instantly exported to Microsoft Excel with one click of the mouse. This allows client customisation of results data and bespoke report formatting, together with the additional ability to use Excel mathematical functions on a range of values, such as for summing friction losses or energy losses through a group of pipes.
Customized Pipe System Report PDF Document
Pipe Flow Expert can generate a professional customized PDF report that documents your pipe system design. With just a few mouse clicks the user can choose to include your company logo on the report cover sheet, select which types of pipe system data to generate, and select individual pipe results data to display in tables.
You can use the amazing PDF reports for internal pipe system design documentation, system design presentations, or email them to clients as part of a quote.
However you use them, you'll find that being able to instantly generate professional PDF documentation of your piping system design has many benefits for your business.
Verified Piping System Calculation Results
It is almost impossible to accurately solve even a small pipe network using hand or spreadsheet calculations, even if you are a mathematics genius, simply because of the complexity and the number of mathematical iterations that are required to converge to a verifiable solution.
Pipe Flow Expert takes the pressure out of performing fluid flow calculations, using it's advanced modeling and calculation engine it will solve the steady state balanced condition for the flows and pressures throughout your pipe system.
The software comes with a Pipe Flow Expert Results Verification Document that compares the results from over 50 published cases against the results produced by Pipe Flow Expert when modeling the same system. The overall results compare very favourably and Pipe Flow Expert is even able to highlight issues and errors in some of the published data, which have later been proved to be incorrect or acknowledged as printing errors.
