TAMPA, Fla. — Heat Pipe Technology (HPT), a division of MiTek® Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway company, announced that it has released a new cloud-based design software program called SelectPlus™. The company said SelectPlus addresses the needs of its representatives who market and help specify HPT solutions; design engineers who design and specify HPT solutions; and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who manufacture air-handling equipment with HPT energy recovery and dehumidification solutions.

Serving as an integrated cloud-based platform, SelectPlus directly assists with heat pipe design and heat pipe pricing, including the ability to create engineering drawings and enable the required document submittals. Whether the user is a rep, design engineer, or OEM, they will be able to access workflow processes that are central to their roles in the design, specification, and installation of HPT products. These capabilities include the selection of dehumidification heat pipes (DHPs) and recovery heat pipes (HRMs) and the ability to calculate the recovery efficiency ratio (RER) to determine true net savings.

A special feature of SelectPlus allows users to input “hours of operation,” for highly accurate savings analysis. SelectPlus also enables communication with engineers affiliated with specific projects.

“SelectPlus is a huge leap forward for HPT, and it will enable collaboration and ease-of-use for our affiliated professionals, whether they are engineers, OEMs, or members of our global rep network,” said HPT’s Maz Awad. “What’s more, SelectPlus is cloud-based, so our affiliated professionals can access extraordinary engineering and design capabilities through any Internet connection.”
