Xylem Inc.’s Bell & Gossett System Syzer software program is available as a mobile application for the Android operating system. The System Syzer Android app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.

The System Syzer calculates the friction loss and velocity through various pipe types and sizes based on existing fluid conditions. It also calculates the relationship between fluid temperatures, system flow and heating/cooling load.

In addition, the system includes 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. Also, a bundled Circuit Setter/Triple Duty Valve calculator helps predetermine valve settings.

The System Syzer application is based on the plastic wheel calculator designed by Bell & Gossett’s Gil Carlson. It was released as an app for Apple iPhone and iPad devices last year. It is also available for free download on all iPad and iPhone devices from the iTunes App Store.
