Titan does what no human and no other compressible flow software can do: run millions of scenarios to optimize a piping system for cost, energy consumption, weight or size.
With ever increasing complexity, sizing today's compressible flow systems for minimal cost surpasses the best traditional design methods. Human intelligence cannot comprehensively handle the often staggering number of variables involved, resulting in missed opportunities to reduce cost. Now, AFT Titan™ with IntelliFlow® eliminates these boundaries. Providing the systems engineer a new technology to intelligently size the system as a whole, your compressible flow piping system can be optimally sized resulting in substantial cost savings. With comprehensive system modeling capabilities, a flexible graphical interface and an advanced optimization engine, AFT Titan offers a quantum leap improvement to the traditional pipe and duct design process.
What is intelligent system sizing? Traditional engineering methods are limited in their ability to select pipes, ducts and equipment sizes on a system basis. Even simple systems will have billions of potential size combinations to consider for their various components, far too many to evaluate by traditional methods. In contrast, intelligent system sizing selects all components simultaneously as a unit. This is the essence of IntelliFlow® technology. AFT Titan harnesses this technology to automatically identify and select the lowest cost design to meet your requirements.
With AFT Titan, you specify the design requirementsand sizing criteria. Sizing criteria may be to minimize initial or life cycle cost, or parameters such as pipe weight, volume or surface area. AFT Titan then performs a comprehensive analysis of the complex interaction among the various components to intelligently determine the optimal sizes of piping, ducting, compressors and fans, valves and other system components. The savings in materials, installation, energy and other costs associated with your piping or ducting system can be dramatic. Traditional methods of system sizing simply can't compare. No matter how good your design methods are, AFT Titan is guaranteed to reduce your cost.
