Spirax Sarco, Blythewood, SC, reports its HVAC Solutions software has been rebranded with the new name, "Steam DesignPro," to meet the demand of mechanical engineers, designers, and contractor in the HVAC market.
The software was created as a visual design tool through an easy, drag-and-drop method for designing and modelling HVAC steam systems. Company sources say the intuitive, Windows-based software allows for easy modelling of steam generation, steam distribution, steam utilization and condensate-handling systems. The program automatically performs many of the engineering calculations and design tasks that HVAC professionals currently accomplish manually, including: head loss and static pressure calculations, pipe and duct sizing, data recalculation, component insertion, full psychrometic calculations and equipment type changes on-the-fly.
Steam DesignPro supports compiling of equipment schedules based on the Spirax Sarco catalog. Minimal training is required to use this software and one can reuse designs from job to job.
“With Steam DesignPro the design and layout of steam systems has never been easier. Consulting engineers and designers will now have everything at their fingertips. They'll love this program the demand of mechanical engineers, designers, and contractor in the HVAC market," says Bruce Moninghoff, vice president, Spirax Sarco Sales.
