The Two P's: Why You Should Care That AFT is Celebrating Its 20th Year

There are two good reasons you should care that Applied Flow Technology is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year.

First is because 20 years in business means that AFT software is proven.

Second is because of the prizes we are giving away this year. Twenty of them no less!

Come along with me while I elaborate on what AFT has achieved in the last 20 years. And explain more about the two P's.

A Vision for the Visual

The last 20 years has been a long and exciting journey. When AFT Fathom was released in April 1994, it was the world's first graphical software for pipe flow modeling in Microsoft Windows. From the very beginning AFT has been a leader and innovator. Check out our first advertisement for AFT  Fathom 1.0 below.

In October 1995 AFT continued to innovate and released AFT Arrow, the world's first graphical software for compressible pipe flow modeling in Microsoft Windows.

In November 1996 AFT released AFT Impulse, the world's first graphical software for waterhammer and surge modeling in Microsoft Windows.

In 2001 and 2003 AFT released AFT Mercury and AFT Titan, the world's first products for intelligently sizing piping systems using numerical optimization methods.

Today AFT is leading the way in developing products to model slurry flow in pipelines. The AFT Fathom SSL module released in 2009 allows engineers to settling slurry fluid dynamics in addition to the built-in features for non-settling slurry modeling.

Just last month AFT released AFT Impulse 5 and, for the first time, the SSL add-on module to AFT Impulse. The AFT Impulse 5 SSL module is the world's first and only software which can model waterhammer in settling slurry piping systems.

AFT's last 20 years have been filled with one innovation after another.

AFT software is trusted by many of the world's leading engineering organizations. Our customer base in over 70 countries gives us global reach, and our Channel Partners in 32 other countries allows us to serve engineering companies all over the world. In their own time zone and own language. As I said upfront, AFT software is proven.

Celebrate With Us and Win One or More of the 20 Prizes!

To celebrate 20 years we will be giving away 20 prizes this year.  The grand prize will be awarded at the end of the year - with the grand prize being a $2,000 gift card for Amazon. 

You’ve got a nice piping system! But how much wil...
