Piping design

Pipework sizing is one of the most important tasks in plant design.
Incorrect sizing will have a major impact on capital cost,
operating cost and plant reliability.

To prevent sizing errors and design efficient and reliable pipe flow systems, the pipework must be designed together with other fluid equipment items such as pumps, control valves, heat exchangers. Moreover, the fluid phase-state and flow characteristics must be considered.

Would you use the same criteria to size a pipe transporting water as a pipe transporting mineral slurry?

No need to say that spreadsheet based piping calculations, which are error prone, must be avoided. Only specialized software applications enable to size pipework efficiently. Amongst the numerous software applications for pipe sizing, we have chosen to work with FluidFlow, which is the most advanced, comprehensive and easy-to-use pipe flow software for liquid, gas, two-phase, settling slurry or non-Newtonian fluids.
