As a part of its product sizing and selection software library, Spirax Sarco, Blythewood, S.C., has released Phase 1 of its pressure-reducing valve.

The addition to the sizing software allows direct-acting products to be selected, which are DRV, DLV, BRV2, BRV7, SRV2 and LRV2. Based on end-user suggestions and feedback, the module was enhanced with additional features and benefits.

Sizing charts no longer are necessary because the visual product-range selection option allows viewing of full product descriptions and code numbers. Additional features include velocity and noise prediction, automatic pipe sizing and more.
