Modeling the dynamics of a
variable displacement vane
pump with spool valve
Transient simulation of a cooling system with
pump and dynamic thermostat
A six stage high pressure centrifugal pump
is a 3-D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
tool that provides accurate virtual testing for the analysis and performance prediction of fluid pumps
, and complete fluid systems
with rotating/sliding components. For liquid systems, PumpLinx’s®
proprietary Cavitation Module accurately models vapor, free gas and liquid compressibility to enable the analysis of performance, pressure ripple, and cavitation damage.
Flow, Turbulence, Conjugate Heat Transfer, Aeration, Cavitation, Particles
Excellent correlation with test data over the full operating range
Fast model creation, even faster simulation speed
Less than an hour from CAD to Simulation, < 15 min. for steady-state results
Able to model complex details down to the micro scale
Accurately model leakage gaps, tip clearances, balance holes, etc.
is built on Simerics® MP’s
baseline technology to provide a transient 3-D simulation software uniquely suited for the analysis and design of pumps and other fluid devices with rotating or sliding components.
PumpLinx consistently provides simulation predictions that are within 5% of physical hardware test results over the full operating range. (Testimonial
Superior Cavitation/Aeration Module:
PumpLinx rigorously and independently accounts for the formation, transport, and effects of non-condensable gases (e.g. air) and cavitation vapor, as opposed to using a lumped effective compressibility approach. (Testimonial
Fast Calculation Times:
PumpLinx has repeatedly been shown to be more than 10 times faster than other commercial codes, enabling more complex simulations, including full transient analysis when needed. (Testimonial
PumpLinx is able to converge extremely difficult problems, even those with detailed micro-scale features and/or severe cavitation.
Ease of Use:
Less than 30 minutes is typically required to create a model with the aid of templates, automated mesh generation
and a single GUI for set-up, simulation, and post-processing.
Virtually Unlimited Support:
PumpLinx comes with extensive training and virtually unlimited support in helping set-up cases. (Testimonial
FOR VALVES, PUMPS, COMPRESSORS, TURBINES, AND MOTORS
provides templates/modules for different categories of components and systems. These templates and modules enable the rapid set-up and simulation of a full range of pumps, motors, turbines, and valves.
