The long-established ValveCalc design program from GEA AWP helps with the selection and sizing of valves for refrigeration facilities. Great news from the German experts – the software is now enhanced to meet the latest standards, a move towards the very latest in technology design.
By entering their operating conditions, users of the GEA AWP ValveCalc software follow a step-by-step guide to choose the right size of valve, or have the system calculate a whole network section with several different fittings and design the system themselves. The new Version 6.0, which the company is providing free of charge on request, takes into account the latest standards in industrial refrigeration including the latest standard for the calculation of safety valves EN 13136:2013. With this, the pressure loss calculations of the supply and discharge lines of the safety valves are now based on the actual discharge volume and no longer the required volume. The maximum allowable pressure of the safety valves is now automatically calculated and displayed. The extensive database of refrigerant data was expanded, particularly for the superheated refrigerant range
The included product catalogue provides a detailed selection of various properties for the selected products. GEA AWP ValveCalc 6.0 also comes with detailed documentation on the designed products and network sections to pass on to third parties. The redesigned print-outs are now more visually appealing than before. GEA AWP also optimized its user interface, making it easy to use on Microsoft Windows 10 and display on common laptop screens.
