17 May 2016
IMI Bopp & Reuther, a business of IMI Critical Engineering, a leading global provider of critical flow control solutions, has launched the latest version of its free-to-use software tool, Si-Tech. Si-Tech 4.0 is a state-of-the-art application that helps users to size and select safety valves, and is available for download to all customers and partners of the company.

Once installed, Si-Tech 4.0 allows users to size and select safety valves according to individual rules and global regulations, and offers a selection of valve types, designs and options that can be combined according to need. The interface is very user-friendly and most of its features can be reached with just one or two clicks.
Other key advantages of Si-Tech 4.0 include:
• All main safety valve sizing and standards catered for in a single software package
• Safe and simple valve selection
• Multiple user options
• Seven user interface languages and 18 output languages, covering all units
• Advanced valve manager permits flexible and efficient project management
• Various data output options
