Fluid Flow Consultants, Inc.
Pipeline Surge Analysis & Multiphase Flow Consulting
We specialize in fluid transients and steady-state multiphase flow, and we have
some 25 years and 100 completed projects worth of experience.
The advantages of retaining Fluid Flow Consultants
to do the work are:
In order for us to give you a quotation, we need a sketch of the pipeline system
showing how the various pipe sections connect, where any product injection sites
(sources), product sales or strip sites (sinks), loops, pumps, valves, check
valves, DRA injection sites, etc. are
located, and at least approximate data (pipe lengths, ODs, delivery (sink) pressures,
source pressures, flow rates, DRA amounts, product size and sequence (for a
multi-batch system), viscosities, specific
gravities, pump data (curves, control and shut-down pressures, RPMs), valve
types and closure times, etc.). Also, describe briefly the
problem you are trying to solve. (For example, do the surge pressures exceed the
pipe MAOPs if any of the MOVs (Motor Operated Valves) close? Are PRVs needed, and
if so, where and what should their settings be?)
- We are experts in the fields of pipeline hydraulics, surge analysis and
multiphase flow, so our work is highly credible. References can be
supplied upon request.
- We use our own software, authored and thoroughly understood by us, so we
waste no time learning how to use required applications.
- We thoroughly document everything we do. This not only gives you something
for reference, but puts you in conformance with regulatory agencies.
- We are cost-effective. We can probably do the work in half the time (or
less) than it would take your own staff. Also, we do not have to buy the
Cost and time estimates are free and obligate you to nothing.
