design, rating and automatic selection
Prode valves is an example of custom application created for design, rating and automatic selection of control, safety and relief valves from a list of models.
Prode valves can assist in design, rating and selection of control, safety, relief valves, in addition to procedures for rigorous design and rating Prode valves offers the benefit to automatically identify the most suitable product and fills in all detailing specifications.
Prode valves includes customizable archives with manufacturer models, specifications and commercial codes.
Control valves and Safety valves Modules
Prode valves supports different graph types, plotted results are calculated at conditions (inlet and outlet pressure and temperature) specified by user but in a range of flow rates, as example the control valves module includes :
Prode valves supports three data viewing modes, spreadsheet mode (with capability of full editing), form view and graph view. The user can define templates to represent data in different ways, it's possible to define a layout to show only process calc's, one for process calc's plus mechanical specifications, one for commercial proposals and so on. Once defined the different templates can be easily loaded in control valves and safety valves modules to get different representations of the same data set.
The wizard included in Prode valves greatly simplifies the whole process of design, rating and selecting a valve, it walks the user step by step through the required tasks by presenting the most appropriate interface and requiring to enter only the strictly necessary information, this saves time and reduces the possibility of errors.
Integration with Prode Properties
Prode valves integrates with Prode Properties which adds the benefits of a rigorous thermodynamic framework for calculating equilibria and transport properties of pure fluids and mixtures.
Design codes and standards
Prode valves procedures conforms to international standards (where applicable) :
