Unplanned downtime costs on average $260,000 an hour, with an average duration of 4 hours. Something as simple and as solvable as running a pump at too high a pressure, or having a tank at too low a level can run you a bill of more than $1,000,000. In today's world of rising costs of materials and manufacturing, the easiest revenue to recover is your annual maintenance spend and reducing your unplanned downtime.
Engineered Software, Inc.’s PIPE-FLO® Professional is the world’s leading fluid flow analysis and design modeling software tool. This versatile platform provides value across multiple disciplines, industries and during all stages in the lifetime of a fluid piping system. It provides a common basis for operators, process and design engineers and management to understand, communicate and document their fluid piping systems and processes. Equally applicable to process, support and distribution systems in commercial, industrial and public facilities.

This is a great way to experience PIPE-FLO® Professional while earning 16 PDH/CEUs.
"ECPI University has been fortunate to use PIPE-FLO® when teaching classes. The interface is amazingly user-friendly and helps solve complex problems with extraordinary ease.
PIPE-FLO® is highly loved by students who are able to design real world problems and select components straight from supplier catalogs."
- Wael M. Ibrahim, Ph.D. | East Coast Polytechnic Institute
The PIPE-FLO® product line allows a user to input design and operational data, including equipment performance information. It then simulates the operation of that system by calculating the flows and pressures throughout. Customers use PIPE-FLO® simulations when:
- Designing a System: Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can design a fluid handling system that meets the production requirements of an industrial facility, supports the operational needs of a commercial facility, or delivers the services expected from the utility company.
- Operating a System: As a customer's business fluctuates or evolves, the operational requirements of their fluid handling systems also change. Through a PIPE-FLO® simulation, users can effectively manage changing production demands, continually identify system improvements that increase yield, and quantify the ROI for system optimization projects.
- Troubleshooting a System: When a fluid system is not operating as expected, either through a reduction of product quality, reduction of system capacity, or because of frequent maintenance events, a PIPE-FLO® simulation can identify the underlying hydraulic issues which are the cause, or a contributing factor to the failures.
