A short description of above apps is given below. 1. Thermo-physical Properties This app provides important thermo physical property data on fluids that are very commonly used in industrial applications. The data helps in computation of various parameters pertaining to flow system design involving heat and energy transfers. Fluids: Air, Steam, Water, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen, Helium, CO2, Methane, Ethane, Chlorine, Ammonia, Argon, Hydraulic oil , Freon (R12), Mercury. A sample screen shot on steam properties is provided for quick review. 2. Fluid ΔP This app computes energy loss involved in transmission of fluids for industrial applications. Users can pick fluid from a list of fifteen most common fluids shown above, pipe schedules and sizes with different material of construction to determine overall pressure loss. A judicious selection of pipe size is often a tradeoff between initial cost and subsequent energy cost involved in transmission of fluid from one point to another. Therefore, the app can be a helpful tool for practicing engineers and designers in analyzing different matrix. A sample screen shot is provided for quick review. 3. Orifice Flow Measurement of fluid flow in pipes and conduits using orifice plates are very common in industrial applications. This app quickly computes the flow rates for liquid and gases based on standard parameters as per the model shown. Users can pick any fluid from a list of fifteen most common fluids used in industrial applications. Therefore, this app can be a very helpful tool for practicing engineers and designers in measurement of flows in pipes and conduits. 4. CPSpec CPspec guides to determine the three key factors of a centrifugal pump design specification such as ‘System Head’, ‘NPSHA’ and ‘Sizing’ in order to unveil the potential for energy savings. Selecting a right spec for the given application is often iterative process and is very essential for its energy efficiency and long-term satisfactory performance. This app can guide that process by quickly modifying the generic pump data to fit an individual application. Further one can save and reload the spec sheet created for monitoring and review. Hence this app can be very helpful to all practicing engineers and designers to accomplish this goal. A sample screen shot is provided for quick review. 5. BoilerFE BoilerFE can help run a quick preliminary audit on water tube industrial boilers. Users can select to run different types of fuels such as coal, oil and gases with specific compositions and heating values. The combustion model computes the efficiency and displays the heat balance sheet as well as flue gas analysis and stoichiometry of the combustion process. Thus it can be very helpful to all energy engineers and auditors in assessing the potential savings as well as to identify areas for improvement. App uses a generic model of an industrial boiler that can be edited for more specific applications and data can be saved in a file. The screen shots displays an example. 7. HeatX HeatX (Heat Exchanger) App helps mainly to evaluate performance in a shell and tube heat exchanger in terms of its overall heat transfer U-coefficient. It also helps in determining different maintenance requirement based on change in its performance characteristics due to degradation. Manufacturers generally provide design specification data such as heat transfer Area, U-coefficient, effectiveness for a given capacity performance. However, these values tend to vary over a period of time and often it is necessary to evaluate and compare design specification data with actual performance. This app serves as a tool for different maintenance personnel, energy and application engineers in monitoring performance and energy efficiency in a shell and tube heat exchanger. 7. Compressor Capacity CompCap (Compressor Capacity) App evaluates different key performance indices in a single stage Industrial Air Compressors as shown in screen shots. Compressed Air system is one of the energy intensive utility often ignored once it is installed and running. It is also one of the least energy efficient as it works between loading and unloading pressure settings. Hence app uses an average pressure ratio for its general performance analysis. Further, app also helps in running quick tests to estimate both FAD and leakage in a given compressed air systems in order to assess the potential energy savings. 8. Fan Specification Performance FanSpec helps to evaluate different fan specification for a given application based performance characteristics such as flow rate, static pressure, shaft power, and fan efficiency. It also determines the average duct velocity and duct pressure loss, permissible duct leakage rate for a given duct class that are very critical to satisfactory performance and energy efficiency. Most manufacturers provide fan performance data in the form of fan curve (Q vs H). However, the operating point on this curve depends upon the total resistance offered by the duct system. This app helps application engineers to quickly evaluate different options available in selection and application of fans. 9. Engineering Unit Conversion UnitConv app helps in quick unit conversion from SI units to USCS/Imperial and vice versa for most of the units associated in engineering conventions and computations. App covers 18 different category of units that are commonly associated with subjects such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfers and other applied engineering subjects where property data requires frequent conversion. 10. Rankine Cycle A basic rankine cycle comprises of Boiler, Turbine, Condenser and a Feed-pump. App provides a graphical representation of this model that enable user to interact and modify he data to suit individual application. It also uses above BoilerFE and HeatX apps to evaluate respective cycle component. A rankine cycle can be single, two or three stage with reheat and expansion in turbine before discharge it to a surface condenser. Depending upon number of stages the state properties are updated and cycle summary is displayed on the model as shown in the screen shot. 11. HVAC Cooling cycle HVAC cooling cycle comprises of outdoor air, cooling coil, conditioned space and return air fan with bypass line. App provides a graphical representation of this generic model that users can interact and edit data that are specific to their application. State properties are duly updated and presented in a scrollable list view for a quick comprehension as shown in the screen shot. A separate section is provided for the room design of conditioned space for heat gain estimation. This enables the user to estimate heat gain under 10 different categories and the summary is posted covering different parameters of the cycle specification. 12.
