Pipe-Flo Professional software helps users solve complex problems faster.

Pipe-Flo Professional software lets engineers design, optimize, and troubleshoot fluid piping systems.

Pipe-Flo Professional software helps users solve complex problems faster. The software, from Engineered Software Inc., Lacey, Wash., simplifies traditional fluid-flow analysis, piping design, and pump selection practices. It also lets engineers design, analyze, and troubleshoot fluid-piping systems with uniform specification windows, unlimited fluid data properties, and easy to use graphics.

Pipe-Flo Professional V.7 gives engineers a new design environment that includes the award winning Flo-Sheet interface. This interface features greater control and enhanced graphical representations of piping systems. The package includes Flo-Links, which creates external links from Flo-Sheet to any Web site or Windows application. The software can handle unlimited pipe specifications and fluid data properties, which lets users calculate fluid properties using the DIPPR, Polynomial, or Yaws formulae.

Sizing and selection wizards in the software use specified design calculations to step designers through the entire pump and valve sizing and selection process. The program's enhanced 32-bit Windows application gives the program a fast calculation engine. Pipe-Flo Professional now supports and licenses use over Wide Area Networks.
