What is Visual Water Designer?
Water Designer is an all purpose water software tool providing
users with many of the calculations encountered in water and
wastewater design and analysis.
Visual Water Designer offers a hydraulic analysis section
that focuses on hydraulics and pumping system analysis, a section
that covers process calculations for almost all of the various
treatment processes encountered in water/wastewater treatment
design, and even calculations for some of the advanced treatment
processes that have emerged recently and have seen increased
popularity in design.
What can Visual Water Designer model?
portion of the software allows users to perform calculations on
pumping systems, pipes, open channels, orifices/gates, weirs,
flumes, flow measurement devices, sewers/manholes, and culverts.
The standard process units
section covers almost all of the treatment units encountered in
treatment plant design, including clarifiers, activated sludge
systems, trickling filters, disinfection, screening devices, grit
removal, digesters, sludge thickeners, flocculation, filtration,
rotating biological contactors, belt filter presses, centrifuges,
dissolved air flotation, and vacuum filtration.
Finally, the advanced treatment process
section covers ultraviolet (UV) disinfection, membrane-filtration,
reverse osmosis, phosphorus removal, and nitrogen removal.
Visual Water Designer Features
Visual Water Designer also
provides the user with various other tools that make the
calculation and design process even simpler.
discharge calculator (Rational and SCS Discharge methods)
properties calculator for varying water temperatures
database for all assumptions used in any calculation
and K value database for pipe/pump systems
- Flexibility of changing easily between flow units at any time
