Tom Glover of Xylem discusses the company’s branding and new announcements at the AHR Expo press conference.

CHICAGO — At an AHR Expo press conference, Xylem Inc. announced that its Bell & Gossett ESP System Syzer is now available for mobile handheld devices. The ESP-System Syzer is calculates flow rates and pressure drops in piping systems.

The new mobile app version of this industry-standard tool now allows HVAC professionals to easily download it on an iPhone or iPad and enjoy the same functionality while working in the field.

The ESP-System Syzer performs several critical calculations and offers a variety of unique features, including: calculating the friction loss and velocity through various pipe types and sizes based on existing fluid conditions; calculating the relationship between fluid temperatures, system flow and heating/cooling load; a unique Cv tool that shows the relationship between Cv, flow and head and accounts for fluid properties; a pipe length/pressure drop tool that interfaces with the other calculators to view the relationship between pipe length, friction loss and total head loss; and a bundled circuit setter/triple duty valve calculator that is very useful during the design phase to help predetermine valve settings and out in the field to determine flow through the valves based on pressure drop readings.
