AutoPIPE Vessel CONNECT Edition V42 Update 3

With AutoPIPE Vessel (powered by Microprotol), manufacturers can quickly evaluate multiple design options to provide comprehensive, high quality solutions for all loading conditions. The program produces drawings to support manufacturing of vessel components in detail with installation and operating conditions, enabling high-quality designs with reduced manual drawing and rework time. Some of the key features are: fatigue analysis, installation and support-in-place design and analysis, pressure testing, automatic drawing production and cost estimation.

Comprehensive, flexible modeling and an easy-to-use interface enables designers to find solutions quickly, improves the efficiency of modeling, and increases profitability. This allows manufacturers to improve productivity and delivery time and enables easier, more accurate design and analysis.AutoPIPE Vessel (powered by Microprotol) imports thermal design data from a multitude of other programs (i.e., HTRI, Aspen, Prosim, and Honeywell) to automate heat exchanger model creation. It shares data with plant design software such as PDS and automatically produces drawings in all major CAD formats (e.g. MicroStation and AutoCAD). Through its superior interoperability, AutoPIPE Vessel (powered by Microprotol) ensures greater efficiency in supply chain and greater alignment with engineering companies. By enabling engineers to collaborate more efficiently, it reduces iterations and errors, enables better quality designs, unifies workflows across a comprehensive set of tools, and improves data handover to operations and maintenance.

AutoPIPE Vessel - Cost Savings Using Design Optimization and Advanced Loadings

AutoPIPE Vessel produces cost-effective and optimized design of pressure vessel components like shells, nozzles, transition cones, flanges, and stiffeners all under pressure and external loadings, including displacement limits. In this webinar, learn how Advanced Wave Motion and Blast Loading allows users to design the vessel to withstand motions load during ocean or ground transportation as well as design for blast loads from a plant explosion.
