Transportation & Distribution Systems

The ability to ensure accurate delivery of a product and raw materials, especially over long distances and significant elevation change is vital to the overall operation and success of a Process Plant. However, the transportation and distribution systems, together with the auxiliary systems that usually form part of most process facilities can often be overlooked in the design process, which can lead to system failure and downtime, ultimately effecting the overall performance of a Process Plant.

Flowmaster provides Process Design Engineers the ability to model these systems in both steady state and transient conditions.

This will allow you to examine several aspects of your process plant from understanding pressure drops and flow rates through complicated piping systems, to predicting transportation times and calculating tank fill-up or extraction times. All in an effort to make sure the systems run as efficiently as possible.

Using Flowmaster V7, engineers can also investigate potential effects of operational procedures such as pump start-up and shut-down or rapid valve closure. Determining if these events could cause severe pressure surge or cavitation and help to develop safer standards to carry out these operations to reduce the risk of damage to the system.

Flowmaster V7 allows engineers to investigate:

  • Flow Rate
  • Pressure Drop
  • Pressure Surge
  • System Response Times
