3D Visual Simulation Software for Engineers and Planners
Pumpsim™ is a new 3D simulation software product developed by Chasm Consulting.
Pumpsim™ provides you with the tools to accurately model, simulate and optimise your pump and pipe fluid reticulation systems.
Why Use Pumpsim™?
Poor water reticulation design in a mining, construction or other industrial environment can often result in an unreliable water supply system which may result in insufficient water supply or pressure, pipe breakage, poor pump performance and productions delays.
Pumpsim™ can solve these problems by ensuring that pumps and pipes are correctly sized and rated, and that the pipe and pump design is optimal for all required activities.
By ensuring your reticulation systems are correctly designed, you can be confident of the safe, continuous supply and removal of water at correct pressures and flows, eliminating costly downtime.
Pumpsim™ 3D Technology
Easily construct detailed pipe network models
Full-scale models of planned or existing pipe networks can be easily created in Pumpsim™. Produce a fully-functional pump and pipe system with the following highly-customisable elements:
- Pipes and Channels
- Tanks and Dams
- Manual and Automatic Valves
- “Demand” devices (sprays, machinery, drills etc)
- And much more.
Import DXF/Autocad and many other formats
Accelerate the construction of your Pumpsim™ model by importing existing model files as “centrelines”, which can then be converted to pipes for use in Pumpsim™.
Reference graphics can also be imported to provide perspective and relevance to Pumpsim™ models. Overlay graphics such as terrain, buildings and tunnels over your models.
Data & Analysis
By running simulations in Pumpsim™, you can begin to identify and address issues with your pump and pipe networks.
Pumpsim™ can simulate over 30 different data types, including:
- Pipe/pump pressure and capability
- Flow quantities and velocities
- Tank and dam structure and capacities
- Optional compressed air and compressible fluid options
- Fluids with different viscosity and densities
- Wall Friction effect
- Hoop, Radial and Axial stresses
- Costs and efficiency
- And much more.
Use the new Dynamic Simulation feature (Pumpsim™ Advanced only) to determine at what point in time issues and problems occur within your network. Graphs, pipe colour changes and alerts can help you identify when unusual network behaviour is expected to occur.
