AFT Fathom

Features

Capabilities

  •  Experiment with operating conditions and scenarios
  • Easily change system input data, including valve positions, pump operation, control set points, pressures, temperatures and more
  • Import piping layouts from:
  • Import and export files in EPANET format
  • Excel integration supporting data import and export
  • Model a wide range of system components for both design and operational cases
  • Vary your system line-up: open / close pipes and valves, turn pumps on or off, set control valves to fail position
  • Specify alerts that automatically highlight output values that are out of range for flow, pressure, velocity, pump efficiency and more
  • Select pumps from online manufacturer catalogs
  • Compile catalogs of your frequently used piping components and select them from a drop-down list
  • Address the viscosity and frictional changes associated with pumping non-settling slurries and a variety of other non- Newtonian fluids
  • Calculate the cost of system pipes and components
  • Clearly import Excel data into multiple scenarios and export with the Excel Export Manager. 

Typical Applications

  • Pipe & pump sizing
  • Pump selection software
  • Control valve sizing and selection
  • Simulating system operation and component interaction
  • Evaluating heat transfer in pipes and heat exchangers
