AFT Can Help You Solve Problems

Mitigate Waterhammer

We help engineers improve safety by predicting waterhammer/surge transient pressures, evaluating potential operational changes to mitigate waterhammer, and enabling engineers to size and locate surge suppression devices.

Bringing your AFT Fathom model into AFT Impulse, or building a new model in AFT Impulse allows potential worst case scenarios to be analyzed efficiently for transient events. Waterhammer caused by events such as sudden pump trips, valve closures, and pump startups can add serious strain to the system due to high pressures, cavitation, and vibrational damage.

Multiple cavitation models are available in AFT Impulse to help engineers calculate pressures in the system from the collapse of vapor cavities. Forces in the system can also be calculated by AFT Impulse and exported to be analyzed using pipe stress software.

AFT Impulse helps engineers create multiple scenarios to model and compare different surge suppression devices for the system such as relief valves, accumulators, vacuum breaker valves, etc, or to test different operational changes to reduce or eliminate the damage caused by these occurrences.

Interested in learning more about your favorite AFT products?
You're in luck! Below are a few options. Contact us for any further questions.

Free Demos

Sometimes you just have to jump in and work with it yourself. AFT provides a limited version of our software so you can get the basic idea of how it works. Note: these demos are not meant to show you all of the bells and whistles.

Introductory Webinars

Watch a recorded webinar and meet our products! AFT engineers will give you insight into how the products work. Additional webinars help you solve project issues so you can model, analyze, and simulate safe and efficient piping and ducting systems. 

Common Interface

AFT models can be imported between AFT products. For example, build your steady-state model in AFT Fathom, then use that same model in AFT Impulse to analyze the surge transients. Contact us for a live walk-thru or an evaluation license.
