Velocity, the rate of change of an object's position with respect to time, is a fundamental factor influencing the behaviour of fluids in motion.
With a deep understanding of how velocity impacts systems, we analyse and harness this knowledge to optimise designs.
Use h2x for Pipe Velocity Calculations:
- Calculates the pipe velocity drop through every pipe (CIBSE-verified)
- Design to different velocities for various water systems (CIBSE-verified)
- Automates all of the calculations based on your design layout
h2x is CIBSE-verified design software built to improve the efficiency and quality of your design process.

Domestic Heat Pump
"After learning how to use the software, we are able to have a domestic project sized in no more than an hour or two.
We get a presentable PDF drawing set to share with our client and h2x automatically generates the Bill of Quantities at the same time, which is great for estimating and material orders.
Most importantly, we have accurate pipe-sizing calculations for our heat-pump installations which ultimately leads to well-performing systems and happy clients."
