Blythewood, SC, United States, 2013/04/15 - Spirax Sarco’s Steam DesignPro 6.0 software was recently chosen as one of the finalists in the Product of the Year contest conducted by Consulting Specifying Engineer Magazine (CSE) and is among three products in the Design, Modeling and Analysis category.
Steam DesignPro 6.0 was created as a visual design tool through an easy, drag-and-drop method for designing and modeling HVAC steam systems.
The intuitive Windows® based software allows for easy modeling 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 psychometric calculations and equipment type changes on-the-fly.
Plus, 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.
In its ninth year, Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s Product of the Year contest is an award competition for new products in the HVAC, fire, electrical, and plumbing engineering industry. The annual readers-choice Product of the Year awards were created to provide Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s readers with information about the top new product in their fields.
