Supported by an exclusive algorithmic tool for engineering analysis, our control valve software performs sizing and selection of any type of linear or rotary valve used in pipelines, which is controlled by electric, hydraulic or pneumatic actuators and positioners.
Primary reference standards:
With an extensive database of liquids, gases and steam, the software allows a huge amount of combinations of operating conditions, such as: Flow Rate, Pressure, Temperature, Density, Viscosity, Vapor Pressure, etc.
For the selection of control valves, the programming logic is developed according to classic concepts of engineering and fluid mechanics combined with manufacturer's specific standards, and the data source is constituted by technical specifications of each valve model and size.
By following the same principle, the software can calculate operating noise levels, and predict flashing and cavitation events inside the valve.
In a highly organized, flexible and friendly environment, the user establishes the design requirements and the software performs all calculations and analysis necessary for accurate sizing of the control valve and actuator:
A properly sized and selected control valve has direct implications on the operating costs of the process being controlled.
Although different types and sizes of control valves can meet the design requirements, they certainly will not provide the same static and dynamic performance.
Therefore, it is essential that the designer has a broad view of the behavior of the valve to be selected.
Our software has the most advanced engineering charts with high resolution details, which show characteristic curves throughout the full operating range of the control valves.
Since control valves are often installed in piping systems, the software has an extensive database containing data of pipes and fittings in a wide variety of sizes, materials and pressure classes.
Once valve and actuator have been selected, the software automatically generates all the engineering reports, datasheets, charts and CAD drawings in several standard paper sizes.
The display and printing of reports use a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface:
All of these documents can be easily customized, printed, emailed or exported to formats like:
As a result of customer demand for more flexible and comprehensive solutions, the software has a host of configuration options that allow the user to customize it to suit his personal wishes and preferences.
