FluidFlow

Global R&D as the name of Global R&E is the sole distributor of FluidFlow software in Thailand. We believe in finding the best solution for our customer to tackle their challenge in day-to-day work. Therefore, we chose to represent the software, FluidFlow, which is a TOTAL SYSTEM DESIGN APPROACH with the most comprehensive and EASY TO USE PIPE FLOW SOFTWARE available.

FluidFlow is easy-to-use and EQUIPS YOU WITH ALL THE TOOLS NEEDED to design or analyze safe, reliable and energy efficient pipe flow systems. A highly intuitive user interface combined with a FREE DATABASE OF OVER 1200 FLUIDS AND OVER 800 EQUIPMENT COMPONENTS has helped engineers get to grips with the program quickly. New fluids (including petroleum fractions), fluid mixtures and components can be quickly and easily added to the database. Accelerate your design process with automatic equipment sizing technology to API & ISO standards.

The results generated by FluidFlow are rigorously tested and verified against published data and real-world operating systems on a continuous basis. An extensive library of ‘Quality Assurance’ test models are also installed with the software

Then WHY STILL USING SPREADSHEETS? Spreadsheet based piping calculations are often error prone. FluidFlow eliminates such errors and helps you design efficient and reliable plant using correctly sized equipment. Comprehensive fluid and equipment databases allow you to accurately design, analyze or troubleshoot any pipe flow system.
