Plant simulation -Fluid pipes reset

Is it possible to reset the fluid pipes during a simulation?

I have a model with several tanks and one common pipe between the production and the production tanks. When changing the production from one product to another the material from the previous task will remain in the pipe and an error will occur since the pipe cannot take the new material from the other tank. This is also a concern with resetting a model, the pipe will contain a material, which is perhaps not the first one to start with in the next simulation.

 

So the question is: can the material in a pipe be set to void? in reset and during running?

 

I have version 12. Is there any fix to this in a later version or in any patch?

Hi StefanK,

 

The material in the pipe automatically will be cleared when the transfer through this pipe will be stopped. So you should stop the transfer from the providing tank, e.g. by closing the exit of this tank.

 

Kind regards
