Calculation of pressure loss with TubeCalc

Screenshot SPF TubeCalc

There is considerable potential for cost savings when the circulation pump of a solar system is dimensioned correctly. TubeCalc allows the accurate description of hydraulic loops for the calculation of associated pressure drop. For this a detailed knowledge of heat transfer medium and its flow conditions is applied. This assists in the optimising of technical and financial decisions.

  • Glycol/water or water as heat transfer fluid
  • Data bank with smooth and corrugated pipes
  • Inclusion of 10 pipe components
  • Harp or meander collectors
  • Use your own measurement data
