Can Piping Design Software such as Pipe Flow Expert 2010 help to Save Over 1
million Tonnes of Carbon Emissions?
PipeFlow.co.uk announces the new release of their premier software application, Pipe Flow
Expert 2010, for calculating flows and pressure drops in pipe systems, and asks “Can Pipe Flow
Software help to save over 1 million tonnes of carbon emissions?”.
Wilmslow, England (PRWEB) July 1, 2010 -- PipeFlow.co.uk announces the release of Pipe Flow Expert
Software 2010, and asks “Can Pipe Flow Expert help to save over 1 million tonnes of carbon emissions?”. Pipe
Flow Expert is a premier software application that helps piping engineers to design energy efficient pumping
systems and to correctly size pipe work. The Pipe Flow Expert software runs on Microsoft Windows, analyzing,
solving and calculating the fluid flows, pressure drops, pumping requirements and energy losses for both open
and closed loop pipe networks.
Pumps are the single largest users of electrical energy in industrial and commercial applications in the UK. The
annual power consumption by pumps (currently 47TWh) accounts for 32% of total motive power consumption by
these sectors. However, because pumps, the systems in which they are installed and the conditions under which
they operate, are often not optimized, considerable amounts of energy are wasted. [Source: BPMA, British Pump
There is now more than enough empirical evidence to show that with properly designed pipe systems and
appropriate pumping technologies, correctly operated, actual savings of 7 Twh per annum are achievable by 2020
(equivalent to the output of one large fossil fuel power station).
Not only are there significant savings in operating costs to be had, but just as important is the reduction of
approximate 1 million tonnes per annum in carbon emissions! This would be a valuable contribution to UK
Government’s goal of reducing total carbon emissions by at least 22 million tonnes per year, by 2020.
