No matter what kind of piping system you have PIPE FLO can handle it. This can be a simple system with just a few pipes getting pressure and flow parameters, or complex with thousands of pipes, pumps, valves, and other components all interconnected in loops and branches.
Of course, we have built PIPE FLO to be open so that it can handle the rigors of any industry, which is why we operate in so many of them! Some industries need to be extremely accurate (Nuclear, High Tech Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical), while others are more focused on speed and throughput (HVAC, oil & gas, mining, water/wastewater). Regardless of your specific focus, PIPE FLO can handle any custom components and help make business decisions fast.
PIPE-FLO is the most intuitive hydraulic modeling software on the market. Even though PIPE-FLO makes modeling piping systems easy, we recognize that any software has a learning curve. With our FLO-Master Academy users can get up and running quickly, by taking live, instructor led 2-4 hour courses online. This allows users to actively work in the software, and learn from fellow engineers. We also offer live technical support, a user forum and comprehensive Knowledge Base.
Both and more! Of course PIPE-FLO is used when bidding and designing new or modified systems. PIPE-FLO is often brought in for troubleshooting or getting more productivity from systems, but once in operations PIPE-FLO becomes a vital component. A common question before making changes becomes “does PIPE FLO say it will work?”.
As accurate as you need it to be. We calculate out to 17 decimal places, but that doesn’t mean you need to. PIPE-FLO is as accurate as the information you enter in your model. You can enter in just your main components, or everything in between.
PIPE-FLO provides consistency in calculations and communications. With built in standards from ASME, ASTM, HI, IEC, AWWA, ISA, ANSI, TEMA, and more. PIPE-FLO allows you to focus on the design rather than confusing and outdated spreadsheets.
System and component operating costs, choke points, system health, current operation vs design vs future state, pump operation, what-if scenarios, and much more.
