What is an .PSV file?

.PSV is Pipe System Viewer File

CAD file created by PIPE-FLO, an application used for designing liquid and gas piping systems; contains a working model of a piping system that can be viewed with the free PIPE-FLO Viewer program; uses a read-only format that cannot be edited with any PIPE-FLO software.

PSV files can be used for sending design drafts between team members as well as to clients for review. The design itself includes equipment, pipelines, and notes and can be simulated under different sets of conditions to examine the performance of the piping system.

NOTE: PSV files can only be created with the Professional version of PIPE-FLO.

It provides users with a wide array of educational videos that can be viewed online. However, if a user needs to view the videos offline, they can download the videos stored in PSV files and view them with the Pluralsight Offline Player.

Pipe Separated Values File

Category: Data Files Format: Text

File used by various applications for data storage and transfer; separates data fields by the pipe "|" character similarly to how .CSV files use the comma "," character; useful when data fields contain embedded commas or tabs, such as with a text description field.

PSV files can be imported into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet if you define the data delimiter as the pipe character. Microsoft Access can also import PSV files into data tables. Additionally, programmers sometimes use the sed Unix command line utility to parse PSV files for input data or for scripted data exchange applications.
