Continuing its role as the industry leader in providing the most comprehensive and innovative technical support, Protectoseal is proud to introduce PRO-FLOW III, the proprietary Vapor Control Equipment Sizing and Selection Software. For decades, PRO-FLOW has been recognized as the premier software package for specifying conservation vents, emergency vents, flame and detonation arresters and other related products. PRO-FLOW calculates the venting requirements for low pressure tanks in accordance with API 2000, NFPA 30 and OSHA 1910.106 and ISO 28300. Based on user supplied data for a specific tank system, the software determines the most suitably sized vent, flame arrester, detonation arrester, or combination of devices to maintain the tank system within safe operating parameters. Output data includes a written summary of design inputs, the required venting calculations, pressure drops, recommended Protectoseal model number and other user defined system information. Flow curves illustrating the pressure/vacuum flow characteristics of the recommended venting device are generated. The PRO-FLOW III release expands these significant software capabilities to include a broader range of Protectoseal products, enhanced graphics, user friendly project management capabilities and more comprehensive calculation and sizing tools.
