FabTech© is a Microsoft Windows® based utility matrix software package designed by AGI. This information is typically used in the design of the facility, including process piping sizing and requirements, utilities demands, and more!

PROBLEMS? Utilities demands? HVAC design / engineering? Tool fit-up? Process piping sizing? Overall fab design? Facility system size?

ANSWER! AGI's FabTech Utility Matrix Program.

HOW? FabTech uses a database for each project and aggregates and diversifies all utilities, in groups specified by the user. The user generates a tool library to draw from.

2014 Additions >>>
> Provides diversification factors for each utility going to each tool.
> Customizable exhaust types
> DI water report showing makeup rate and AWN size based upon demand.
> Nitrogen report showing nitrogen tank sizes and refill frequencies based upon demand.
> Electrical – A new panel analysis tool has been added.
