CPFD Software, LLC is recognized as a global technology pioneer having successfully commercialized its unique engineering software across international chemical, petrochemical and power generation industries. Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the company develops and distributes computer-aided-engineering (CAE) software exclusively for industrial applications that require a heavily laden particle flow field using its breakthrough technology, computational-particle-fluid-dynamics, or CPFD®. An array of industrial processes employ such particle flows to achieve chemical reactions, or to transfer heat in order to manufacture gasoline, hydrogen, nylon, and white pigment (TiO2), to convert biomass and coal into fuels, and even to enable high-volume runs of ultra-pure Silicon for photovoltaic solar power.
New technologies striving to create renewable energy and cleaner fuels can benefit greatly from this software, both in the research and maintenance of developing or untested methods. Currently, CPFD software is employed by major automotive and transportation manufacturers, as well as by major chemical and petrochemical companies worldwide.
Barracuda Virtual Reactor™ is the ONLY engineering software developed exclusively for industrial fluidization systems, including particulate chemical reactions. Its fundamental fluid-solids physics models are validated and proved to solve complex design and operational problems.
Barracuda VR™ is used today by government research laboratories and international FORTUNE 500 companies to make critical decisions on plant design and process optimization. Using Barracuda VR, CPFD's clients now have a solid engineering and scientific basis for making confident decisions on fluidized process design and operation that have profound financial impacts.
