Orifice plate sizing made easy
FlowCalc32 is a Windows orifice plate sizing program for calculation of various differential pressure flow measurement devices. The program can be used to calculate orifice plates, venturi and nozzle flow meters or to calculate the effects of changes in operating conditions, variation of pipe and primary device bore diameters etc.
Calculate orifice plates fast and accurate
FlowCalc32 comes packed with features and different orifice calculation tools giving our users great flexibility and options not found in other orifice plate calcualtors. Even if the program is comprehensive, much work has been put into making it as easy as possible to use and even non experts should have no problems getting started.
Most orifice plate calculations are performed according to the internationally accepted standard ISO 5167. All orifice calculation data is checked towards the limits of the standard and the calculation reports includes both documented accuracies from ISO 5167 and warnings for data out of range. This means that the orifice calculations are very reliable.
Manage your orifice calculation data
All orifice calculations are stored in a database and this makes it very easy to search for and copy or edit old orifice calculation data. Furthermore the database may be installed on a network to be shared by all connected users. You can perform calculations at the engineering office and give the maintenance staff at the instrument workshop access to the results immediately in order to calibrate the DP-transmitter etc. Or why not let the maintenance staff do the calculations themselves? It is also possible to export orifice calculations to files that can be shared via email.
Calculate flow and compensation formulas
A very unique and powerful feature of FlowCalc professional is the compensation flow formula analyzer. This is a tool that can be used to calculate and evaluate orifice flow formulas used in measurement applications. The theory behind it is that the flow formulas commonly used in flow measurement applications are very simplified compared to the formulas used in FlowCalc. By comparing the output of FlowCalc’s internal calculation engine with the output of the simplified flow formula it is possible to see the accuracy of the flow formula for different operating conditions. Did you for example know that the normal flow formula to take the square root of the differential pressure usually does not give the best accuracy? The compensation analyzer displays the accuracies as easy to read charts and contains wizard tools for finding the most accurate formula.
