Dehydration with Aspen HYSYS: Validation of the CPA Property Package
Dehydration units are often overdesigned, resulting in high capital or operating costs. In order to ensure design options meet the necessary requirements of saving capital, solvent or energy costs, thermodynamic modeling and a holistic view of operations is needed. This paper discusses the dehydration modeling technology available with Aspen HYSYS in V10 and above. Aspen HYSYS has historically employed the glycol property package for TEG. With the addition of the Cubic-Plus-Association (CPA) package in V10, Aspen HYSYS can be used to model dehydration with TEG, MEG and DEG.
Addressing Complex Challenges with Rundown Blending in Aspen Refinery Multi-Blend Optimizer
The refining market is ever evolving due to market trends continuously changing. Typically, refiners use spreadsheets to develop a schedule, but are often limited to time-based scheduling due to spreadsheet limitations. In Aspen Refinery Multi-Blend Optimizer, schedulers use rundown components continuously, while respecting tank inventories and constraints, to generate a refinery-wide blend schedule on a single database.
