Since 1989, ABZ has analyzed and evaluated the methods, equations and physics necessary to solve problems related to fluid flow. ABZ's work in fluid flow was used to create and support reliable and easy to use software for fluid flow analysis. ABZ continues to search for innovative and efficient methods to improve upon the Design Flow Solutions (DFS) Software and to support ABZ's customer base of more than 22,000 working engineers.
ABZ has applied this experience and knowledge of fluid flow to solving numerous customer problems. This includes solving the design problems associated with complex flow networks in diverse industries such as aerospace, process gases, chemical processing, power generation, and oil and gas production.
ABZ offers consulting services to assist clients in solving complex fluid flow problems. Examples of the types of problems that ABZ can help clients solve are provided. ABZ can provide an independent check of the calculation or provide the full analysis. Services can be provided by fixed price or time and material as needed by the client. For additional information and quotes for ABZ consulting work, call Nick Capik at 703-636-1126.
ABZ continues to provide valuable and cost effective support to clients in applying DFS to solving complex fluid flow problems. The following provide a brief description of representative ABZ DFS projects.
Chemical Plant Perimeter Fire System
ABZ modeled the perimeter fire system for a chemical plant. The fire system, originally designed nearly 40 years ago, had been modified several times. The design needed re-baselining to satisfy state inspectors. ABZ modeled the entire system using DesigNet and provided a model that could be easily manipulated to test the system performance in various configurations.
Gasoline Transfer Station
ABZ provided consulting and modeling services to a major oil company. The company has numerous gasoline transfer stations. The station consist of a transfer pumps, tanks and valving controls to load trucks for delivering gas to local gas stations. Each transfer station has the same basic design but with slightly different characteristics. The company needed a simple method that each transfer station operator could evaluate the station's performance. ABZ provided the generic station using DesigNet.
