Pioneering Developers of Pipe Network Analysis Technology

KYPipe Model

KYPipe has been developing pipe network analysis software for over 40 years. The sophisticated analysis algorithms used to analyze Steady State, Surge, Gas and Steam systems have been perfected by our leading experts in this field. One common user interface (Pipe2006 / Pipe2008 / Pipe2010 / Pipe2012 / Pipe2014 / Pipe2016) links all these calculation models. Our Pipe2000 suite of hydraulic analysis software, water hammer or transient analysis software, and compressible gas analysis software is an international industry standard. Pipe2000 also includes unique capabilities to model facility's piping systems.  Civil Engineering professors Dr. Don J. Wood and Dr. Srini Lingireddy developed the Pipe2016 generation using input from users like you. We make every effort to incorporate user suggestions and requests. We welcome your continued input into the software development process. 

Technical support for our software is free. Drs. Wood and Lingireddy are also part of a team of experts who make up the Pipe2000 Technical Support team. Unlike many of our competitors, technical support for our users is provided at no additional cost. You may contact any one of a number of software developers and engineers with your questions about using the Pipe2000 suite of models. 

For your convenience, in addition to our U.S. based offices, we have representatives and distributors worldwide in India, ChinaKorea, Middle-East, Egypt, South America, Taiwan, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Europe.  Download a fully-functional demo program.

Flow Control Article: Properly Mitigating System Shaking & Water Hammer
Surge analysis software helps protect against hydraulic transient.

Process control engineers and operators face many challenges to keep pumping systems running efficiently and reliably. For users of positive displacement (PD) or PD-style pumps, the issues of addressing damaging pulsations caused by the stroke of the pump are all too common and unavoidable. These pulsations will often violently rattle or shake piping, causing noise, premature wear and potentially a complete break in the pipe itself or damage to valuable components in the flow path downstream of the pump. Traditionally, the solution has been to install a pulsation dampener on the discharge side of the pump.

You may have heard the term, “wastewater flows downhill.” In this article, we will refer to this as gravity flow. In many cases, municipal wastewater systems have to pump the fluid uphill first. This presents many issues with regard to minimum flow velocities and pressure surge issues. This article describes the typical sewage pump station force main problems that can arise after startup.
