Advantages

  • Assessment of the pumping station’s operation, in order to better understand its operation

  • Evaluation of the risk of vortex formation and calculation of the angle of pre-rotation at the intake of the pumps and of the other criteria of the ANSI-HI 9.8-1998 standard.

  • A flexible model, making it possible to simulate scenarios for flow optimisation and for cost optimization by making simple structural modifications that are validated by the company responsible for the work.
