AFT Mercury

Intelligent System Sizing for Piping Systems

AFT Mercury is a software tool used to intelligently size piping and ducting systems to minimize cost. It offers a dramatic improvement to the traditional design process. Built on the advanced flow analysis and system modeling capabilities of AFT Fathom, AFT Mercury can simulate your piping system in complete detail.

Designed for fluid systems containing:

  • water
  • petroleum and refined products
  • chemical products
  • cryogens
  • refrigerants
  • low velocity gases
  • and more

AFT Mercury is particularly useful for:

  • Minimizing the initial cost of your system
  • Minimizing the life cycle cost of your system
  • Meeting specific design parameters of your system including minimum pipe weight, volume or surface area

Achieve Significant Cost Savings in Your System Designs

AFT Mercury…

  • Automatically sizes piping, ducting, pumps, valves and other components to achieve your cost goals
  • Provides a comprehensive approach to identify low cost design of real world systems that is rarely practical with traditional methods due to the large number of variables and constraints involved
  • Provides the power of informed decision making when developing a low cost system design


  • Advanced optimization engine with IntelliFlow® technology to automatically determine the best possible pipe and equipment sizes
  • Comprehensive system modeling capabilities
  • Scenario Manager to track all design variants and operational possibilities in a single model file with data linkage
  • Integrated graphing and reporting
  • Conduct thermal analysis including piping heat transfer and heat exchanger modeling
  • Supports Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids
  • Built-in library of fluids and fittings can be extended and customized
  • Optional Chempak add-on utility provides a thermophysical database of almost 700 fluids

World Class Support
