Bell & Gossett is pleased to announce the release of an iPad® and iPhone® version of its very popular System Syzer® Calculator tool. The application is free of charge and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
System Syzer is an HVAC tool that helps with system design. The application is based on the original plastic wheel calculator invented by Gil Carlson of Bell & Gossett. It was first introduced in 1963 and has since been distributed to hundreds of thousands of engineers and tradesmen.
The tool is made up several different calculators:
- There is a calculator to determine the friction loss and velocity through various pipe types & sizes based on your fluid conditions.
- Use System Syzer to determine the relationship between fluid temperatures, system flow and heating/cooling load.
- Included is a Cv tool that shows the relationship between Cv, flow and head. Again, this calculator accounts for fluid properties.
- There is a Pipe Length/Pressure Drop tool that is handy with the other calculators to view the relationship between pipe length, friction loss and total head loss.
We have also bundled the Circuit Setter® / Triple Duty Valve calculator that is very useful for balance contractors. Use it during design to help predetermine valve settings and out in the field to determine flow through the valves based on pressure drop readings.
