7 Secrets to a Well-Run Plant (for Plant Managers)
In this white paper, plant managers, engineers and supervisors can learn the different ways simulations models can be used throughout the lifecycle of their plant. It focuses on seven areas you can use process simulation software (like Aspen Plus or Aspen HYSYS) for troubleshooting, process monitoring, and real time performance monitoring or real time optimization (RTO).
Streamlining Projects with a Modular Approach
This article published in Business Standard [India], by Sunil Patel and Ron Beck, describes how E&Cs can gain a competitive advantage, achieving lower design costs (CAPEX) for clients through modular design; and using aspenONE engineering for design templates.

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.
