HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 9, 2015 – Intergraph® has released PV Elite® 2015, the most advanced version of the complete solution for vessel and heat exchanger design, analysis and evaluation that includes a new 3D PDF modeler, plus Intergraph CodeCalc™ improvements and pressure vessel code and calculation updates. The latest release of PV Elite also adds configuration options, improved analysis capabilities and many other productivity enhancements.
Favored by owner operators and engineering firms worldwide, PV Elite is compliant with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Section VIII Divisions 1 and 2, PD 5500, EN 13445 and API 579, providing an inclusive set of international code rules and region-specific content combined with robust data collection tools. This allows engineers and designers to create vessel and heat exchanger designs quickly and accurately for projects of varying scopes and sites.
PV Elite has important equations built in to help users meet inspection requirements and graphical inputs make it easy to create, update and manipulate analysis models. It also includes bi-directional links to CADWorx® Plant Professional and PV Fabricator® for information-sharing throughout the project.
Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine’s executive vice president of global business development and marketing, said, “Intergraph continues to add new functionality to meet the requests of our customers. PV Elite users are designing equipment for the most extreme uses and are able to do so more quickly, accurately and profitably by using Intergraph solutions.”
Rick Allen, president of Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, said, “Users have a lot to look forward to with this latest release of PV Elite, especially the addition of a 3D PDF modeler, which allows for easily-shareable and dynamic visual representation of vessels, as well as enhanced output presentation. This visibility allows others to easily see the results and make comments and changes earlier, which enables higher-quality deliverables.”
