FM 103 - Using the Pump Devices in PIPE-FLO (4 Hours)
FM 103 will give users hands-on experience using PIPE-FLO in a Virtual Instructor Lead Training (VILT) environment to gain an in-depth understanding of the pump devices modeled in PIPE-FLO: the centrifugal pump, pressure gain device, fan, blower, and compressor. Students will learn how to size the device based on different design parameters, the required and optional design data, available operating modes, and calculated results available for analysis. While becoming more proficient in navigating the PIPE-FLO user interface, students will learn the engineering principals and industry standards used to evaluate these common pumping devices. Exercises using PIPE-FLO will reinforce the workflow to create a piping system digital twin, understand how results can be used as virtual instrumentation, and better understand how to evaluate the messages and calculated results of each device.
