Hytran Capabilities

  • A simple drag-and-drop technique is used to generate a flowsheet representation of the pipe system
  • Simulate a wide range of equipment items -  pumps, turbines, check valves, control valves, orifice plates, nozzles.
  • Sequential operation (start/stop/fail) of multiple pumps incorporating non-return valve characteristics. 
  • Simulate the performance of water hammer amelioration devices – air chambers, stand pipes, surge tanks, discharge tanks, anti-surge air valves.
  • Column separation and re-join.
  • System performance with control valves.
