SST INTRODUCES HOTclash FOR AVEVA’s PDMS PLANT DESIGN SOFTWARE - Industry’s First “Real World” Conditions Simulation Software Finds Pipe Clashes; Uses “Go Live” Analysis To Avoid Costly Shutdowns and Modifications
San Jose, CA – SST Systems, specializing in software solutions and services for piping design and analysis since 1983, has introduced HOTclash, the industry’s first “real world” conditions simulation software for PDMS (AVEVA’s 3D Plant Design software).
HOTclash helps plant owners/operators avoid costly post-commissioning repairs and shutdowns by simulating “real-world” conditions so PDMS can pinpoint pipe clash issues with adjacent equipment, cable and duct trays, structural and concrete support structures, and other piping systems.
“While the standard clash check feature amounts to just a ‘paper test,’ our HOTclash simulation is actually ‘hot,’ ” stated C. D. Vijay, SST’s Product Manager. “It transfers ‘deformed shapes’ for the piping system under three different loading conditions — Shut-down, Hydrotest and Operating — to PDMS, which in turn can check for interference under the above three loading conditions as well as under the traditional “as-designed” model condition. A company can avoid future lost revenue and productivity due to expensive repair costs arising from problems that could have been detected beforehand. Projects are safer. Startups are more confident.”
