AFT Impulse 5

Waterhammer & Surge Analysis Software

AFT Impulse is a powerful fluid dynamic simulation tool used to calculate pressure transients in piping systems caused by waterhammer.

Designed for use in liquid systems containing:

  • water
  • petroleum and refined products
  • chemical products
  • cryogens
  • refrigerants
  • and more

AFT Impulse is particularly useful for:

  • Ensuring that pressure extremes are within design allowables
  • Sizing and locating surge suppression equipment
  • Determining imbalanced pipe forces and sizing structural supports
  • Troubleshooting existing systems to determine the cause of operational problems
  • Evaluating the effect of pressure surges due to vapor cavity collapse

Design and Operate Your System with Greater Safety and Reliability

AFT Impulse will help…

  • Avoid potentially catastrophic effects of waterhammer and other undesirable system transients
  • Alleviate possible financial and environmental issues associated with inadequate system designs or operational procedures
  • Prevent events that have serious consequences to life and property
  • Avoid lost revenue resulting from incidents that cause down time
  • Validate the design of safety features
