Computational Fluid Dynamics

VALVES, PUMPS, TURBINES, PIPING, EQUIPMENT

CFD is synonymous of smart design and engineering! A cost effective practise to project new technologies without big investments.

LOCLAIN’s engineering tools (like ANSYS CFX and FLUENT) and expertise in control valves design, process and equipment are the key prerequisites for a successful project.

Pressure drop, cavitation, and noise can be also verified by our hydraulic flow-test facility.

Stress Analysis

STATIC AND LINEAR, FATIGUE ANALYSIS, THERMAL STRESS ANALYSIS AND MORE

We perform stress analysis with the most advanced tools such ANSYS Mechanical and NASTRAN IN-CAD on valves, structures, piping equipment and more.

Simulation of linear analysis, fatigue and stress thermal calculations are only few examples.

Custom Control Valves

VALVES, TURBOMACHINERY, EQUIPMENT

On-Off valves such as ball valves, bautterly and globe valves can be converted into high performance control valves! Noise, cavitation and flashing can be handled by the integration of special trim designed for the specific application.

Liquid, gas and steam are the main process fluids for control valves and LOCLAIN Engineering Division is able to design brand new trim supported by CFD analysis and flow-test activities together with Sizing Software, cavitation devices and technical training.

Hydraulic Flow Test

Loclain_Research&Development_FlowTest_Facility_Data_Collection

Hydraulic Flow-Test is used to verify Cv/Kv, pressure drop, cavitation, hydrodynamic noise, vibration, power efficiency of several items such as valves, pumps, turbines, flow meters, etc.

3D CAD design (with Inventor and Solidworks) are firstly evaluated and optimised with ANSYS CFX/FLUENT and than verified on the field: our Flow-Test bench!

Try this unique way of smart approach to new solutions in valve business and process equipment.
