What's New in PIPE-FLO Professional 2009?


PIPE-FLO 2009 has many new features to streamline the program operation and increase the presentation value of the piping system model.

With PIPE-FLO 2009, you can:

 

Operating Cost Calculator
Our biggest new feature in PIPE-FLO 2009 allows you to calculate pumping costs for your piping system model over a user-defined period. You can define different operating conditions using lineups throughout the analysis period, and the costs for each operating condition can be calculated. PIPE-FLO's Cost Calculator will total the cost of operation for that period appropriately. This feature provides another tool to aid engineers in green and energy efficient system design.
