LACEY, Washington—September 22, 2008—PUMP-FLO™ Solutions (An Engineered Software Business), proves once again that it remains the leading provider of pump selection software solutions to the fluid handling industry. Today Engineered Software and PUMP-FLO Solutions announced its list of downloadable pump eCatalogs now exceeds 100, more than any other software selection tool available. The latest additions including AMPCO Pumps, Blagdon Pump, Cornell Pumps, Forum SPD, Q-Pumps, and Thrush Pumps.
Electronic Catalogs, or eCatalogs, are used in the PUMP-FLO selection module included in the PIPE-FLO® and Flow of Fluids system design software. The creation of an eCatalog is a team effort between Engineered Software and the pump manufacturer. The manufacturer benefits include having their pump information made directly available to people using the piping system design software, and allowing users to search for the best possible pump match for their designed piping system. This in turn saves money for the company designing the piping system because their precise pump selection directly affects operational costs of their system.
“Pump manufacturers know that by working with PUMP-FLO Solutions to make their eCatalogs available, they are reaping huge benefits with hardly any additional overhead. And the engineers that make design and purchasing decisions regarding pumps have come to count on their preferred manufacturers to make their catalogs available through the PIPE-FLO software. It’s a symbiotic relationship our company creates, and everyone wins,” said Carolyn Popp, President, and Chief Technical Officer for Engineered Software, Inc.
The PUMP-FLO software suite, used by pump manufacturers, pump distributors, and pump users/specifiers, is the global leader in the pump selection process. The software is used in the sizing and selection of pumps, showing dynamic pump curves, and aids purchasers and suppliers in the quotation process.
“Pump eCatalogs are the heart and soul of the PIPE-FLO and Flow of Fluids programs. Anyone can have a piping system design program, but to be able to select specific pumps from manufacturers and include them in the system design process makes for a highly specialized tool,” said Michael Blondin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Engineered Software. “We continue to be the leader in pump selection software, and we include the pump selection software with our piping system design software.”
A free online version of the PUMP-FLO selection tool can be found on the PUMP-FLO.com website. The website offers free pump selection through the online portal from any of the more than 80 free manufacturer catalogs including thousands of available pump curves. The PUMP-FLO product line is used by over 100 pump manufacturers, 400 distributors, and over 150,000 pump buyers/specifiers. PUMP-FLO.com’s selection portal is based on the Windows®-based software (CD) and boasts to save time, increase accuracy, and improve productivity during the sizing, selection, and quotation process of centrifugal pumps.
