RiteFloTM App – On-the-Fly Pump Calculations From Rain for Rent

Rain for Rent, a leading provider of temporary liquid handling solutions and rental pumps, tanks, pipe, filtration and spill containment, has launched RiteFlo, a free app that offers a comprehensive suite of hydraulic estimation tools designed for water and wastewater professionals.

Ideal for use on the jobsite, RiteFlo includes a Gravity Flow Logger to measure the flow in gravity-driven sewer lines. The tool provides immediate calculations based on observed pipe conditions, and makes it possible to attach photos to each measurement. Another key feature is a robust database that facilitates flow monitoring in multiple lines over time.

The RiteFlo suite also includes a TDH calculator, a pipe friction loss calculator and a pump selector. The calculators work together to help determine the flow and the pump capabilities. The pump selector takes user data from TDH calculations and allows the user to plot the duty point dynamically on pump curves to yield a pump recommendation.

“RiteFlo is a new tool that makes field calculations faster and easier, and it’s one of the many ways we’re sharing Rain for Rent’s Liquid Ingenuity© with the world,” said John P. Lake, Vice-president, Rain for Rent. “The industries we serve are becoming more mobile, and wastewater professionals are taking on more responsibility. That’s why we invested in RiteFlo and are offering it for free, so anyone can make flow calculations onsite and on-the-fly.”

Based on early App Store reviews, users appreciate RiteFlo’s user-friendly interface design as well as having a new tool that’s more intuitive than a spreadsheet. Users also like the convenience of being able track multiple projects and email images and data to anyone directly from their device.

Live demos will be presented at WEFTEC in Chicago at Rain for Rent booth #2271 October 7-9.  RiteFlo™ can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store. An Android version is coming soon.
