Whether it’s maintaining a required flow rate without the onset of cavitation or balancing flow within a manifold without exceeding pressure limitations, the ability to develop a device that achieves all performance specifications without excess cost is an important factor in maintaining market leadership and brand recognition. Therefore, understanding the flow and thermal characteristics within these devices early in the design cycle is imperative for producing higher quality products that are in compliance with industry standards.

Our team of simulation specialists has years of experience in extracting the design insight from these types of applications to empower more innovative design solutions and address even the most challenging performance goals.

“IDP’s, now Rand SIM, collaborative consulting was a valuable part of a recent cost-savings development program at Hoshizaki America. Their simulation specialists were a true extension of our design team and not just an outside consultant. From the beginning they had a clear understanding of our objectives and were very effective in communicating the rationale behind the required design strategy, which ultimately was confirmed by testing and resulted in substantial labor/material cost savings.”
