Heat Pipe Technology (HPT) a division of MiTek® Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway company (NYSE: BRK-A, NYSE: BRK-B), today announced that the new-user adoption rate of its new SelectPlus design software has vastly exceeded the Company’s expectations.
In the first month of its release, more than 400 enterprise users have registered to use SelectPlus, a cloud-based software product that directly assists with heat pipe design, including the ability to create engineering drawings and enable required document submittals.
“There is clearly a real hunger in the market for heat pipe design software, which is exactly what our new integrated software program offers,” said HPT’s Maz Awad. “We are pleasantly surprised by the rate of registrations for SelectPlus, but it corresponds with our market research that shows an increasingly broad market acceptance for heat pipe technology, a sector where we are a global leader.”
Designed with the latest cloud-based technology, HPT’s SelectPlus addresses the needs of three HPT constituencies: HPT Representatives who market and help specify HPT solutions; Design Engineers who design and specify HPT solutions; and Original Equipment Manufacturers who manufacture air-handling equipment with the latest HPT energy recovery and dehumidification solutions.
Whether the SelectPlus user is an HPT Representative, a Design Engineer, or an OEM, they will be able to access workflow processes that are central to their roles in the design, specification, and installation of HPT solutions. These capabilities include the selection of Dehumidification Heat Pipes (DHPs) and Energy Recovery Heat Pipes (HRMs) and the ability to calculate the Recovery Efficiency Ratio (RER) to determine true net savings.
A special feature of SelectPlus allows users to input "hours of operation," for super-accurate savings analysis. SelectPlus also enables communication with engineers affiliated with specific projects. Design engineers will also enjoy SelectPlus’ ability to generate dimensional drawings and help select HPT systems for direct-expansion and chilled-water systems.
