PV Elite®

 
 

PV Elite® is a complete solution for vessel and heat exchanger design, analysis and evaluation. The program is easy to learn and use so it is perfect for users requiring fast start-up and confidence in their safety code calculations.

PV Elite considers the whole vessel, addressing all of the wall thickness rules and stress analysis requirements for vertical towers, horizontal vessels and heat exchangers.

Easy data collection

PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets; help on any input item is only a keystroke away.

Cutting-edge graphics

PV Elite’s graphical representation of analysis models helps ensure confidence in the input and results. With PV Elite, you can view and manipulate analysis models with complete ease.

Advanced analysis and reporting

To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) and also groups results by type (e.g. internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles and flanges).

Overall results are summarized where the element or detail controlling the overall vessel MAWP is identified. Quickly send analysis results to output reports or export results to the file format of your choice (Word or PDF).

International materials and codes

PV Elite is a global package with international code rules plus extensive region specific content. Vessel material definitions, piping and steel component data, local wind loads, and local seismic loads of many regional markets are all included.

Powerful integration capabilities

PV Elite shares a bi-directional link to CADWorx® Equipment module allowing the flow of data and model from design to analysis and back. PV Elite also shares links to other Intergraph SmartPlant suite products.

For the generation of fabrication drawings, the free PV Elite plugins provide a path to import a PV Elite model into 3D Solid Modelers, including all analysis data to easily generate 2D drawings, including annotations with data directly from the analysis model. Plugins are available for Dassault SOLIDWORKS® and Autodesk Inventor®.

PV Elite also interfaces with other popular software packages for finite element analysis, Heat Transfer thermal design, foundation design and drafting.

Interactive user interface

The interactive user interface in PV Elite presents only what is needed at each point of information gathering.

Therefore, the user is not burdened with “out of sequence” requirements of information needed for the analysis.
