PB 2013-011 Standard Flow Rate Units for Component Curves Become Invalid When Importing a Version 2009 File

Program affected: PIPE-FLO Professional 12

Build numbers affected: 12.0.19520

When PIPE-FLO Professional 2009 files are imported into version 12.0, Components are translated into Curve dP Devices. If the Component flow rate data is specified in standard flow rate units, version 12.0 does not recognize the unit and it is displayed as "invalid." This will create a corrupted file when saved into version 12.0.


Both of the following conditions must be met:

-Importing a PIPE-FLO Professional 2009 file into version 12.0.
-The file contains a Component with curve data specified using standard flow rate units (e.g., scfm).


After importing the file, open the curve data dialog for any Curve dP Devices and select the appropriate standard flow rate unit for the curve data. Make sure this is done for all Curve dP Devices that have curve data specificed in standard flow rate units.
