Easy pressure vessel data collection

The PV Elite software solution streamlines data entry and simplifies the process of defining boundary conditions for pressure vessels and heat exchangers.

For the most complex load sets that require significant data input, PV Elite makes data collection easy by breaking the input down into sensible subsets. The easy-to-use tools and quick set functionalities mean that help on any input item is just a click away.

Cutting-edge graphics for pressure vessel models

Designers and engineers can have full confidence in their input and results when it comes to modelling pressure vessels, with PV Elite’s world-class graphical representations. Viewing and manipulating analysis models has never been easier.

Advanced analysis and reporting

To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite’s pressure vessel design software 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).

Quick access to international materials and codes

No matter where you are in the world, PV Elite includes all major international code rules plus extensive region-specific information. Pressure 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 streamlines the pressure vessel design process, as the software 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

See only the data you need at each point of information gathering, with PV Elite’s interactive interface. Save time with your pressure vessel design and limit the burden of “out of sequence” requirements by being presented only with the information needed for the analysis.
