Transportation & Distribution Systems

Flowmaster provides Process Design Engineers with the ability to model the transportation and distribution systems, together with the auxiliary systems that form part of most process facilities in both steady state and transient conditions.

Using Flowmaster V7 General Systems engineers are able to examine several aspects of a 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.

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 can help engineers to develop safer standards to reduce the risk of damage to the system.

Scenarios where you could use Flowmaster to meet a design requirements:

  • Evaluating whether the system meets desired flow rates
  • To investigate the impact of different components on the overall system
  • Correct sizing of components to ensure efficiency and low operating cost
  • To understand the effects of different operating conditions on the overall system
  • Failure scenarios for sudden transient events to ensure they are within the system limits

Key Safety Systems Modelling & Simulation Features:

  • Steady State and Transient flow analysis using a wide range of heat transfer options
  • Examine system pressures, flow rates and system response times
  • Wide range of hydraulic system components
  • Flow balancing module for regulating system flow rates
  • Design out pressure surge and cavitation
