Control Valve Sizing and Selection Software

August 1, 2011

Fisher® Specification Manager software has been enhanced to include ease of use and added flexibility. Designed for engineers who select and specify control valves, the Fisher Specification Manager software package features a clear, sequential process to such tasks as building ISA specification sheets, predicting valve operating noise levels, and exporting dimensional data for Fisher and Baumann™ control valves. Enhancements include the addition of a port diameter attribute to the trim details grid as well as updated product data and literature. The newly revised Fisher IEC valve sizing engine now includes inlet temperature for liquid sizing, while faster download and installation of software changes are now possible thanks to a new quick update feature within the Help menu. A “What’s New” menu option allows one-click access to the latest software changes. The latest version of the Fisher Valve Specification Manager software can be downloaded from
