News Blue Ridge Numerics, the world’s fastest growing CFD software company, has been named as a finalist in the Technical Innovator of the Year category of the Pump Industry Awards 2006. Blue Ridge Numerics has been nominated for its pump design optimization software, CFdesign®.

“The Pump Industry Awards were established to promote best practice in key areas of pump manufacturing and acknowledge the companies and innovations that are driving this dynamic industry forward,” comments Andrew Castle, chairman of the judging panel.

Developed specifically for engineers working with Autodesk Inventor, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks and other leading CAD systems, CFdesign is a powerful upfront CFD application that turns a standard CAD workstation into a fully interactive flow bench.

The benefit of using CFdesign is that companies gain critical insight into pump performance early in the design process, cutting development time and dramatically reducing the amount of physical prototyping and testing required. The engineering information made available includes transient details of a whole machine’s response to fluid flow on any time scale, full performance curves, impeller radial loading, analysis of single blade passage and of intermeshing gear parts: all things that are almost impossible to determine from a lab test.

Commenting on this latest achievement Blue Ridge Numerics president Ed Williams says: “Quite simply CFdesign is accelerating the rate of innovation within the pump industry. CFdesign makes it possible for engineers to see the total pump performance picture before building any physical prototypes. By enabling them to see what they have been missing on the flow bench they are making more innovative pumps based on more complete engineering data.”

CFdesign can help optimize and economize any of the following pump types: axial flow, bladder, booster, cantilever, centrifugal, condensate, diaphragm, gear, grinder, hydraulic, injection, jet, lobe, peristaltic, piston, positive displacement, rotary and sliding vane, screw, single and double volute, turbine and vacuum.

Companies using CFdesign to aide pump design include: Argal, Askoll, Borg-Warner, Bristol Compressors, Compare, Copeland, DeVilbis Air Power, Ebara, Factair, Fairbanks Morse, Finish Thompson, Floway, Gardner Denver, Goodrich Pumps, IMO, Ingersoll Rand, ITT Goulds, ITT Flygt, IronPump, Lau Industries, Layne Bowler, Liberty, National Oilwell, Pentair, Pioneer, Tempo, Wabco, Waterous, Weir Floway and York.
