PipeDrop 1.2.6

PipeDrop is an advanced hydraulic pressure drop calculator for liquids, gases, and 2-phase flow in pipes and ducts for Windows (tm) based computer systems. The pressure drop calculations can be in either a laminar or turbulent flow regime.

Included are 3 powerful modules for calculating pressure drops for single lines, a pump network, and orifice plates:

Single Line Pressure Drop Calculations:

* Supports liquid, vapor/gas, and 2-phase flow pressure drop calculations.
* For liquid and vapor/gas flow, the conduit can have a circular, rectangular, or annular cross-section.
* Supported 2-Phase flow calculation methods: Friedel, Chisholm-Baroczy, and Lockhart-Martinelli methods.
* Instant access to pipe tables (both ANSI/ASME and ISO/DIN standards).
* Instant access to pipe fitting K factors.
* Instant access to fluid physical properties (seamless integration with PhysProps).
* Instant data sheet print-out of calculation results.

Pump Network Calculations:

* Indispensable for evaluating pump requirements consistent with control valve pressure drops needed for adequate flow control.
* Ideal tool for quickly determining the hydraulic requirements of single and multi-destination pump arrangements typically found in batch and continuous processes.
* Instant access to pipe tables (both ANSI/ASME and ISO/DIN standards).
* Instant access to pipe fitting K factors.
* Instant access to fluid physical properties (seamless integration with PhysProps).
* Instant data sheet print-out of calculation results.

Orifice Plate Calculations:

* Interactively solve the liquid/gas orifice equations (ISO 5167-1 standard) for either flow rate, differential pressure, or orifice diameter.
* Meter tap arrangements supported include flange, D and D/2, and corner taps.
* Meter element and pipe expansion factors included in the calculations for a wide variety of materials of construction.
* Instant access to pipe tables (both ANSI/ASME and ISO/DIN standards).
* Instant access to fluid physical properties (seamless integration with PhysProps).
* Instant data sheet print-out of calculation results.

Also included in PipeDrop is a collection of 8, indispensable tools which are designed to ease virtually ANY hydraulic calculation. The tools can be instantly used within the context of a PipeDrop calculation or independently for other engineering needs.

The 8 tools consist of:

Liquid/Gas Physical Properties (seamless integration with PhysProps)
Gas Density Calculation Tool (for vapor/gas calculations)
Compressibility Factor Calculation Tool (for vapor/gas calculations)
Flow Rate Conversion Tool (lb/hr, m/s -> ACFM, SCFM, etc.)
Heat Capacity Ratio Calculation Tool (for real vapor/gases)
Pipe Fitting Loss Calculation Tool (based on the superior 2-K Method)
ANSI/ASTM and ISO/DIN Pipe Tables (the same high quality tables as found in EngVert)
Material Roughness Table Tool

PipeDrop is undeniably the most versatile and easy to use pressure drop calculator tool ever produced. Examine the screen shots below to gain a feeling of the intuitive user interface PipeDrop was designed around.
