QPCalc can be used for quickly calculating the pressure drop in a pipe segment. Valves, fitting and custom pressure drop devices can be included. Use QPCalc to determine pressure drops in plant piping consisting of pipe segments, block valves, control valves, filters, strainers etc. All K-factors and equivalent lengths of valves, fittings and custom devices are included in a built-in database. No more charts, graphs or nomograms to use! Various pressure drop formulas such as Colebrook-White, Moody, Hazen-Williams, MIT, Miller and the T.R. Aude equation are included. QPCalc also tells you how much horsepower is required for a given flow rate.
Technical support is provided for licensed users of the software for a period of one year from the initial purchase date. After that period, Technical Support can be provided only if an annual Software Maintenance and Technical Support (SMTP) plan has been purchased. Minor upgrades and maintenance releases are posted at SYSTEK's Web site for licensed users to download free of charge. You may need to contact SYSTEK to obtain a password for downloading and installing an upgrade from the web site. Major upgrades are issued twice a year at special prices to current licensed users. Call or write for details of Technical Support plans.
We welcome comments and suggestions from users. Please give us your thoughts on how QPCALC can be improved further. Our goal is to make this software the most user-friendly program available for engineers.
