New software: Piping design suite models installations
Engineered Software Inc . has released its Pipe-Flo Professional 2007 program, used to design and simulate operation of fluid piping systems. This new version is the first major update since the 2005 release. Key enhancements reportedly include options for creating piping system models as 2-D or isometric drawings with capability to create custom shapes for pumps, tanks, components, and control valves.
"The new Pipe-Flo Professional 2007 is the ideal tool for anyone who designs, builds, operates, or maintains fluid piping systems," says Ray Hardee, VP of engineering at Engineered Software. "Our newest improvements in Pipe-Flo Professional add yet another level of compatibility and integration with our customers' current business processes."
Pipe-Flo can be used by designers and operators to gain a picture of their fluid piping systems. The program allows users to visualize their piping in a familiar format, calculate system operations, easily communicate the design with others, and access supporting documents in electronic formats.
