Applied Flow Technology Mercury

Applied Flow Technology (AFT) Mercury is powerful analysis software used to intelligently size piping and ducting systems to minimize cost. It offers a dramatic improvement to the traditional design process. Built on the advanced flow analysis and system modeling capabilities of AFT Fathom™, AFT Mercury can simulate your piping system in complete detail. Designed for fluid systems containing water, petroleum and refined products, chemical products, cryogens, refrigerants, low velocity gases and more, AFT Mercury provides the power of informed decision making to help you achieve your cost goals.

AFT Mercury is particularly useful for:

  • Intelligently sizes your entire system
  • Identifies critical cost saving opportunities
  • Evaluates the most cost effective piping and other system component sizes
  • Automatically determines the best possible sizes for pipes, ducts, pumps, valves and other components
  • Provides a comprehensive approach rarely practical with traditional methods due to the large number of variables and constraints involved
  • Compatible with your existing AFT Fathom models


  • Advanced optimization engine to automatically determine the best possible pipe and equipment sizes
  • Comprehensive system modeling capabilities
  • Scenario Manager tracks all design variants and operational possibilities in a single model file with data linkage
  • Integrated graphing and reporting
  • Conducts thermal analysis including piping heat transfer and heat exchanger modeling
  • Supports Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids
  • Built-in library of fluids and fittings can be extended and customized
  • Optional ChempakTM add-on utility provides a thermophysical database of almost 700 fluids


  • Capital cost savings
  • Operating cost savings
  • Achieve inherent system flow balance
  • Insure performance requirements are met over multiple design cases
  • Understand what really drives your design
