Among others the CONVAL Service Release 10.3.21 includes the following improvements:
- Multilingual version (English, French, German)
- Automatic log out from network licenses when inactive.
- Problems with printing headers, footers, and calculation messages are fixed.
- Issues with export to Excel templates are fixed.
- Addition of design data for pressure and temperature for testing materials of body and pipelines.
- An issue in the calculation of the outlet velocity of valves with additional stages in the valve has been addressed.
- Revised reliability analysis of large valves and when using abrasive media
Differential Pressure Flow Element
- The uncertainties in the flow rate table are always calculated with the absolute uncertainty of the differential pressure.
- Extension of the range for the diameter ratio β of orifice plates according to ISO/TR 15377 to 0.23 < β < 0.7.
Restriction Orifice Plate
- Revised calculation of compressible media at critical flow conditions according to Richard W. Miller "Flow Measurement Engineering Handbook".
Pressure Relief Valve
- The alternative calculation of steam according to ISO 4126 and AD 2000-A2 using the steam pressure coefficient is supported.
- Addition of design data for pressure and temperature testing for materials of body and pipelines.
- Revised calculation of discharge conditions for compressible media.
Shell And Tube Heat Exchangers
- The calculation of the mass flow in the tubes of the heat exchanger when entering the mass or volume flow in the jacket was incorrect under certain circumstances.
- In most cases, the simulation in the tank depressurization module terminated before a result could be calculated.
- New parameter for the COM server to check the standard conformity of thermowells
- Problems with the processing of gas and liquid mixtures have been solved.
