MECHANICSBURG, Pennsylvania – Software that optimizes pipeline flow chemistry and energy requirements is available from GL Noble Denton.

SynerGEE Liquid Transmission simulates pipeline hydraulics and determines the optimum use of drag-reducing agents and pump energy use, says Shelly Young, VP of Software Solutions Practice.

A steady state analysis engine simulates the hydraulics in the pipeline and determines an optimum, also allowing for model calibration and simulation of what-if scenarios.

The program user interface shows a schematic of the batches and the pipeline to allow users to view past, present, and future results of the simulation. Variables such as pressure, flow rate, power consumption, and drag-reducing agent injection rates are selected by the user for display. Time and distance charts can also be used to view the results.
