GEA optimizes design program for refrigeration plants

Date: 04.05.2023Source: GEA


GEA AWP expands and optimizes the refrigeration design program ValveCalc with additional content and functions. The new ValveCalc 7.5 can also be used to dimension branched safety and overflow blowoff lines complete with pipes, bends, transitions and other possible components. It provides a design environment for graphically mapping and editing a pipe network. Using drag-and-drop, essential components such as safety valves, vessels and pipes can be inserted to build up the structure of the network. Integrated input masks are used to define additionally required data, such as refrigerant, outlet pressure and the calculation standard to be used. The user can thus compile all sections and valves of his plant himself online with ValveCalc 7.5.

Complex project processing optimized and content revised and updated

The new version ValveCalc 7.5 has been optimized visually with regard to the user interface and the view on printout sheets, and new languages such as Korean, Chinese, Polish and Italian have been added. On the other hand, there are far-reaching content relaunches. The critical velocity is taken into account in the calculation of the branched lines calculations of safety valves as well as the different fire sections in the calculation. For the respective calculation section, new online video tutorials are available with ValveCalc 7.5.
