Included Databases:
+ Estimate the Physical properties of pure components for more than 1450 components; the database has the ability to estimate Thermal Conductivity, Density, Heat Capacity and Viscosity. The database also included critical properties, boiling and melting points and come as a standalone interface but easily integrated with the software.
+ Ability to add your own properties in the additional user databases.
+ Fouling factors, Overall heat transfer coefficients and film heat transfer coefficients included.

There is also the option of purchasing a second physical properties database (PhysPro Fluid Properties)  at discounted priced when you purchase this software.
