Carmel Software announces that it has released three (3) new HVAC pipe sizer apps for Android-based phones, including "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Steam", "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas Low", and "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas High".

The "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Steam" application allows users to quickly size a simple piping system for steam. In addition, it includes a bonus steam table calculator that allows users to calculate steam properties based upon a variety of input parameters. In the pipe sizing module, the user can specify the total steam flow in lbs/hr (or kgs/hr), the initial steam pressure (psia or psig) and one of either pressure loss (psi/100ft), pipe internal diameter (inches) or steam velocity (ft/s) parameters. The results include both the exact and nominal pipe diameters and the calculated velocity and total pressure loss.

The "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas Low" and the "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas High" applications allow users to quickly size a simple low pressure (< 1.5psi) and high pressure (>= 1.5 psi) gas piping system by inputting a number of piping and gas properties:

The "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas Low" application allows users to size low pressure gas piping systems by inputting the gas flow rate, the gas velocity, the gas pressure drop, and/or the pipe diameter. It also allows users to size existing pipe systems by specifying the pipe diameter and gas velocity. Users can specify additional parameters such as the type of gas, various properties of the gas, the pipe material type, the total length of pipe, quantities for up to 11 different types of pipe fittings, and much more. Results can be displayed in either english or metric units.

The "HVAC Pipe Sizer - Gas High" application allows users to size high pressure piping systems by inputting the gas flow rate, the gas velocity, the upstream gas pressure, the downstream gas pressure, and/or the pipe diameter. It also allows users to size existing pipe systems by specifying the pipe diameter, the upstream gas pressure, and/or the gas velocity. Users can specify additional parameters such as the type of gas, various properties of the gas, the pipe material type, the total length of pipe, quantities for up to 11 different types of pipe fittings, and much more. Results can be displayed in either english or metric units.

"We have recently released a number of apps onto the Android Marketplace, and the response has far exceeded our expectations. We will continue to develop apps for the Android marketplace since so many engineers, technicians, and architects are using Android-based phones," says Stephen Roth, PE, Principal of Carmel Software.
