PIPE-FLO - Version Overtime - Fluid Flow Analysis Software
The Piping System Model, created by PIPE-FLO, shows great detail about the steady-state operation of any piping system.
PIPE-FLO Overtime, Engineered Software's newest release and an add-on to PIPE-FLO Professional can quickly simulate how your piping system will operate over a specified period of time. Specifically, Overtime turns the static PIPE-FLO model into a dynamic problem solving simulation tool. Instead of analyzing your system at a moment in time, Overtime analyzes your system over a period of time. It's like the difference between a snapshot and a movie. Not sure how this could be put to use?
Here a few examples of how the PIPE-FLO Overtime program can be utilized:
- Prevent the overflowing of cooling towers by determining the balanced levels in each cooling tower basin
- Determine the number of pump starts per hour for a waste collection system under any expected operating condition
- See how your system will operate by testing the equipment logic prior to programming your Programmable Logic Controller
- Perform a process safety management analysis of the piping system by analyzing the system with various failed components
