PV Elite®

PV Elite®


Data Collection

PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets; help on any input item is only a keystroke away.

Cutting-Edge Graphics

PV Elite’s graphical representation of analysis models helps ensure confidence in the input and results. With PV Elite, you can view and manipulate analysis models with complete ease.

Advanced Analysis and Reporting

To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) and also groups results by type (e.g. internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles and flanges). Overall results are summarized where the element or detail controlling the overall vessel MAWP is identified. Quickly send analysis results to output reports or export the file format of your choice (Excel, Word, PDF).

Materials and Codes

PV Elite is a global package with international code rules plus extensive regionspecific content. Vessel material definitions, piping and steel component data, local wind loads, and local seismic loads of many regional markets are all included.

Powerful Integration Capabilities

PV Elite interfaces with other popular software packages for finite element analysis, foundation design and drafting. PV Elite also shares a link to CADWorx® Equipment module and other Intergraph SmartPlant suites.
