PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets. Help on any input item is only a keystroke away.
PV Elite's graphical representation of analysis models helps ensure confidence in the input and results. With PV Elite, analysis models can be viewed and manipulated with complete ease.
PV Elite performs calculations in accordance with ASME Section VIII Divisions 1 & 2, PD 5500 and EN 13445. Rules from API579 (Fitness for Service) are also included for evaluating the current state and remaining life of existing vessels.
Outputs and Reports
To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) and also groups results by type (e.g. internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles and flanges). Overall results are summarized where the element or detail controlling the overall vessel MAWP is identified.
