PumpSim

Reticulation Design & Optimisation

PumpSim has been developed by the same team that developed VentSim 3D Mine Ventilation Simulation software. It was designed to tackle the common problem of poor water reticulation design which often leads to unreliable water supply systems within the mining, construction and other industrial environments. This may result in insufficient water supply or pressure, pipe breakage, poor pump performance and production delays. These problems can be solved by the software as it ensures pumps and pipes are correctly sized and rated, and that pipe and pump design are optimal for all required activities. It also shares many of the same popular intuitive user interface features as VentSim, such as providing a detailed 3D visual simulation of pipe networks and pumping systems. It allows full 3D modelling with integrated features such as smooth rotation, zoom and pan, as well as real-time animation of liquid/slurry flows through the model. You can always be confident of the safe, continuous supply and removal of water at correct pressures and flows, eliminating costly downtime by ensuring your reticulation systems are correctly designed with Pumpsim.

PumpSim Liquid

01PumpSim Standard: Liquid

PumpSim Standard: Liquid is a low cost, steady-state modelling tool for fluid flow prediction through pipes, pumps and channels.

Features

  • Predict Flows & Pressures – Steady-state modelling shows estimated flows and pressures.
  • Model & Design – Performance and characteristics of different fluids and slurries.
  • Find Shortfalls – In water delivery or extraction through undersized or poorly designed systems.
  • Estimate Pump Size & Performance – Predict performance and suitability of different pumps.
  • Interactive 3D User Interface – High speed 3D display and navigation in real world scale.
  • Animated Flows & Pumps – Visualise flows and movement at real-time speed through models.
  • Graphics Import – Import centrelines and solids from CAD packages for rapid building of PumpSim networks. Overlay complex 3D CAD designs for further visualisation aids.
  • Up to 10,000 Network Pipes – Build large-scale models as part of the design phase or to replicate your existing networks.

02PumpSim Standard: Advanced

PumpSim Advanced: Liquid is a powerful steady-state and dynamic (time-based) modelling tool for incompressible fluid flow through pipes and pumps.

Features

  • All Standard features.
  • Model complete systems at different times with different demands.
  • Predict energy and use profile over days or weeks.
  • Supports non-Newtonian such as thick slurries and paste fill.
  • Graph any activity demand (dam levels, pump activity etc.) over time to view performance.
  • Ensure pumps, storage tanks and dams are correctly sized for peak demands.
  • Simulate events such as flooding or high equipment use to highlight system demand shortfalls at different times.
  • Implement and test simple or complex rules to change the systems in response to events (stop/start machines, open/close valves at different water levels).

PumpSim: Gas

03PumpSim Standard: Gas

PumpSim Standard: Gas is a low cost, steady-state modelling tool for gas and compressed airflow prediction through pipes and compressors.

Features

  • Predict flows and pressures as the steady-state modelling shows estimated air delivery and pressures to machines and devices.
  • Model and design performance and duty cycle time of compressors and receivers.
  • Predict and minimise air leakage and energy losses and costs in large systems.
  • Correctly size pipes for required flow deliveries and pressures.
  • Interactive 3D user interface features a hardware-accelerated 3D display and navigation in real world scale and dimensions.
  • Animated flows and pumps help visualise flows moving at real-time speed through models.
  • Graphics import function imports centrelines and solids from CAD packages for rapid building of PumpSim networks. Overlay complex 3D CAD designs for further visualisation aids.
  • Up to 10,000 network pipes enable you to build large-scale models as part of the design phase or to replicate your existing networks.

04PumpSim Advanced: Gas

PumpSim Advanced: Gas is a powerful steady-state and dynamic (time-based) modelling tool for gas and compressed airflow prediction through pipes and compressors.

Features
