  1. Could please add steam valve sizing to the control valve app?

  2. I myself would like this also. I have put this on my update list. Thanks for the feedback.

  3. I’d like a bit more dynamic app that takes into more factors, i.e. varying pipe types, diameters, pressures, valve types, etc.

    I build municipal water plants and I want to check the design engineers work before I buy the material and put in the ground. Invariably if their design doesn’t perform as it was supposed to, then they attempt to blame the contractor instead of owning up to a bad design.

    It would be great if I could take Line A, a 72″ steel pipe, insert X number (up to 10) of bends (and their degrees), elevation differential, valve types & number, flow meter type (shape), etc in order to check the hydraulic profile of Line A and then be able to string multiple lines to understand and check thea. Basically, some (very expensive) pumps need a certain amounts suction and/or discharge pressures at certain velocities to work at their most efficient range possible and in a way that does not cause cavitation and long term pump damage. Pumps are/or piping systems are obviously much cheaper to correct prior to installation as rework means endless meetings to toss blame and assign costs and or damages. Good data to backup my arguments for such a change in the design is essential. If you can help, you are the man.

    Something like this, but updated.

  4. Thank you for your feedback. Down the road, hopefully near the later part of this year, I will be able to create an app as you describe above. I know exactly what you are talking about as I have to do them for my day job. It will take some time to put this together but it can be done. Thanks again for your feedback and stay tuned for more apps!
