hi everybody i have a probelm with my tank "the inflow rate is less than the outflowrate"
or the outflowrate of the source that come just before tank is 6.7 l/s and the outflowrate of the tank is 5.82 l/s when i open the dialog window of the tank i read 3.630 l/s as current inflowrate !!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes there is a pipe between the source and the tank whose the outflowrate is the same as the source but the source and the pipe belong to a sub-frame (separator) and the tank belon to the Top-frame
It seems that PlantSim is clever enough to divide the outflow of a pipe evenly amongst all successors if the pipe is split in two. So while your source might pump out 6.8 l/s, each pipe connected to the first one only has a flow of half that ones, I.e. 3.4 l/s.
This is not, however, a problem when two pipes are connected directly to a source, because then they both have the same outflow as the source.
The easiest fix in your case would then be to have two pipes from FluidSource with one interface each.
