Compressor and Pipeline Simulation Software,
Consulting and Services
For the past 20 years, Hayes Technical Systems, Inc. has provided pipeline and reciprocating compressor simulation software that allows anyone interested in compressor performance to quickly and easily get answers to their operational and business questions. HTS combines over 30 years of pipeline and compressor experience with a very intuitive user interface to provide engineers, operators, gas controllers and managers with software that immediately provides answers and improves the bottom line (and all lines in-between).
Hayes Technical Systems, Inc. was founded by Larry Hayes in 1992 to offer simulation software and consulting services in the areas of compressor and pipeline design, operation and optimization. Larry graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and joined Northern Natural Gas Company in 1975. Larry worked in the Facility Planning and Systems Support environments within the natural gas industry for 17 years, holding various senior engineering and managerial positions before starting HTS in 1992. Satisfied customers have steered the HTSCompress software to become a tool that is used throughout the natural gas industry to model compressors, enhance compressor testing, draw performance curves, and provide real-time compressor analysis using SCADA input.
Larry began developing compressor and pipeline simulation software in 1978 to enable facility planning studies to be completed in less time and with greater accuracy. Early successes included saving $1,000,000 at a gathering station by cancelling modifications that were thought to be necessary, until modeling showed otherwise. In the early 1980's, Larry developed one of the first pipeline models (HTSPipe) to use a graphical interface to allow the user to draw the pipeline schematic on the computer screen. All data was displayed on the graphical interface, resulting in a very intuitive, easy to use program. This intuitive, easy to use interface has become the trademark of HTS software. HTS software is designed from the users point of view and allows even novice users to do serious pipeline and compressor analysis.
Hayes Technical Systems, Inc. also provides consulting services in the areas of pipeline and compressor design, planning, optimization, compressor performance curves, compressor quote evaluations, and performance troubleshooting.
Hayes Technical Systems, Inc. has, on several occasions, identified cost savings and revenue enhancement opportunities during demos of HTS software. Very likely, we can pay for the software license fee during the demo by showing potential customers how to increase performance of existing compressor units. One customer realized a savings of $350,000 on the first station they modeled with the HTSCompress program by cancelling a planned compressor modification after the model identified a way to achieve the required pressure reduction with existing compressor units.
If you're ready to realize the full potential of your compressor investment, give HTS a call for a "working" demo of the HTSCompress software.
You'll be pleased with what we'll find.
(We'll probably pay for the software during the demo)
