“Over the past 4 years, our office has used FluidFlow to design both simple and complex fluid systems for the mining industry. Compared to spreadsheet based calculations, FluidFlow allows us to more quickly develop complex fluid networks from concept to detailed design. For projects shared between offices, the visual software interface and calculation outputs streamline the peer review process.
The technical support from Flite Software NI Ltd has been excellent. We consistently receive near immediate responses from the FluidFlow team for technical questions ranging from model setup to licensing issues.”
