Primary Features of AFT Fathom 11

  • Model your centrifugal and positive displacement pumps to account for
      • Shifting performance curves through variable speed control and impeller trimming
      • Viscosity corrections using standards from the Hydraulic Institute
      • Wire-to-water efficiency including pump, motor and variable frequency drive efficiencies, used to size motors and evaluate power usage
      • Acceleration head loss for positive displacement pumps
      • NPSH evaluation
  • Track all your design variants and potential operating conditions in a single file with Scenario Manager
  • Use integrated, customizable graphing and reporting to make analysis visually intuitive
  • Evaluate Pump and System curve interaction including composite head and efficiency curve
  • Calculate the capital costs of pipes and components as well as operating energy expenses
  • Leverage built-in libraries of fluids and fittings to build your own database upon
  • Consider viscosity and frictional effects from non-Newtonian viscosity models or non-settling slurries
  • Size motors and evaluate power usage by considering wire-to-water efficiency (including pump, motor and VFD efficiencies)
  • Import piping layouts from CAESAR II® Neutral files, PCF Files, and GIS shapefiles regardless of source
  • Integrate with Excel to import model data and export output data
  • Ensure a design adheres to industry standards such as API 526, ANSI/HI 9.6.3, API 610, or NFPA Standards
  • Account for heat transfer effects in pipes and heat exchangers
  • Built-in libraries of fluids (including NIST REFPROP and ASME Steam Tables) and fittings which can be extended and customized
  • Optional Chempak add-on utility provides a thermophysical database of almost 700 fluids

How does it work?

AFT Fathom’s hydraulic solution engine uses the Newton-Raphson matrix iteration method plus proprietary methods developed by AFT to solve pipe flow and duct flow applications. AFT Fathom uses the Bernoulli’s Equation and Reynolds Number-based relationships for pipe friction calculation.
