PPI PLASTIC PRESSURE PIPE DESIGN CALCULATOR
The BCD Plastic Pressure Pipe Design Calculator is a software tool that aids in designing plastic pressure pipe and tubing systems using PEX, PE-RT and CPVC. It is intended to assist designers using these materials for applications such as plumbing, water service, fire protection, hydronic piping (general), radiant heating, radiant cooling, snow and ice melting, geothermal ground loops, district heating and turf conditioning.
The tool includes functions to calculate Pressure/Head Loss, Pipe Weight/Volume, Thermal Expansion/Contraction, Hydraulic Shock and Expansion Arm/Loop design. It utilizes dimensional data from ASTM and CSA Group industry standards for these materials, as well as data generated from various PPI research projects.
The calculator provides for a selection of working units, either IP/US or Metric/SI. Various fluids can be selected such as water, propylene glycol or ethylene glycol, with temperatures and mix ratios chosen by the user. The BCD Calculator allows the results to be viewed, printed or emailed.
