Featuring 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) output, live flow evaluation, and integrated flow data, the updated Swagelok MPC configurator makes it easy to develop complete process analyser and sample-handing systems. The program provides engineers with an interactive tool to build and assemble ANSI/ISA 76.00.02 compliant miniature modular designs prior to the purchase process. With the MPC configurator, engineers can have a ‘try before you buy’ experience for their system design as the tool lets one pick the component, platform layout, and even fluid type to produce a live flow model so one can see graphical representation of flow through a system. From the configurator, engineers can create several types of reports to support their design. The software generates 2-D design schematics (P&ID view exportable through AutoCAD 2010), a 3-D real view (exportable to SolidWorks), and/or a bill of materials (BOM) for purchasing. A project report feature also provides a BOM and assembly diagrams package. All outputs can be saved to the user’s local machine.
