Can Pipe Flow Expert handle both open and closed loop piping systems?
Yes. Pipe Flow Expert can handle both open and closed looped pipe designs. It can model complex pipe networks that contain hundreds of loops with pipe arrangements that return flow back into the system at any point.
If you can draw the piping system then Pipe Flow Expert can model it, calculating the flow rates, pressure losses, pump operating points and more.
The Pipe Flow Expert software comes with example systems that demonstrate pressurized re-circulation systems, HVAC systems, and a variety of looped systems. These example pipe designs can be loaded and solved, to see the calculated flow and pressure values on the results sheet.
