Popular piping fluid flow analysis Hydrosystem software is now integrated with Spaix
Moscow, Russia – Dresden, Germany – 20 April 2015
Piping Systems Research & Engineering Co (NTP Truboprovod) in cooperation with VSX – VOGEL SOFTWARE has released a new version 3.85 of its piping fluid flow analysis program Hydrosystem. This is the first version of Hydrosystem integrated with popular Spaix 4 Quick&Easy pump selection program by VSX – VOGEL SOFTWARE.
Hydrosystem software performs heat losses & pressure drop calculation and nominal size selection for the pipeline networks transporting both compressible or incompressible one phase fluids and two phase gas-liquid mixtures. Steady-state flow and water hammer (surge) analysis can be done for piping networks of any complexity. The program includes powerful thermodynamic libraries which provide automatic phase equilibrium analysis and calculation of all necessary fluid properties on the base of fluid composition or oil distillation data. The accuracy of results is ensured by automatic recount of fluid properties and flows at every pipeline component. Detailed component analysis is performed in accordance with worldwide-accepted correlations by Idelchik, Miller and other experts, as well as modern two phase flow analysis methods. Simple and user-friendly GUI of the software provides different options of graphical representation of calculated piping (PFD and P&ID–like schemes, real exact 3D model, raster map background etc.) and animated results visualization. The software is widely used in power, oil refinery, petrochemical, gas, oil, chemical and other industries in hundreds of companies in Russia and other countries.
The product Spaix 4 Quick&Easy is a compact version of the Spaix 4 Pumps software. While Spaix 4 Pumps includes a complete sales support package with product configurator and quote generation, the Quick&Easy edition is focusing on performance curve management and pump selection. Due to the focus on core functionalities, the software can be characterized by its easy handling and user friendliness. Reliable pump selection is possible with minimal effort. Spaix Quick&Easy contains all functions for the calculation, evaluation and conversion of pump performance curves. Moreover, the software includes drive selection and dimensioning.
The new Hydrosystem version provides bi-directional integration with desktop-based version of Spaix 4 Quick&Easy using Spaix 4 ProjectAdapter XML. Hydrosystem automatically transfers operation points data and necessary fluid properties to Spaix and launches the latter program for pump selection. After an optimal pump is selected (including appropriate duty point adjustment) in Spaix, the data on corrected pump performance and NPSH curves for selected pumps are automatically transferred back to Hydrosystem for final hydraulic analysis.
The compact pump selection program is also delivered to all Hydrosystem users entitled to version 3.85, according to the agreement between NTP Truboprovod and VSX – VOGEL SOFTWARE. Russian version of Hydrosystem is delivered with Russian Spaix 4 Quick&Easy manual (specially prepared for this version by specialists of both companies) and pump database. The database currently contains data on petroleum centrifugal pumps by JSC Volgogradneftemash, the work is under way to add pumps of other popular Russian and world manufactures with next Hydrosystem releases.
The integrated Hydrosystem + Spaix 4 Quick&Easy software bundle provides new opportunities for process and piping engineers to improve quality and energy efficiency of their projects. VSX – VOGEL SOFTWARE and NTP Truboprovod intend to further improve this solution and invite all interested pump manufactures to cooperate in extending it with their data.
