Aspen Column Analytics

Combine column design and operational data with data science to operate closer to the true flooding limit of distillation columns — adding production capacity worth millions of dollars per year.

With Aspen Column Analytics, you can maximize throughput, increase feed rate and predict column flooding well before it happens by:

  • Tracking column performance in real time
  • Detecting the early indications of flooding
  • Receiving prescriptive guidance to avoid process upsets

Get the complete view of asset performance

Get real-time “X-Ray” insights to safely and confidently run distillation columns near the edge by monitoring:

  • Critical flooding factors
  • Stage vapor and liquid flows
  • Column pressure drop (DP)
  • Column section temperature drop (DT)
  • Column DP and DT rate of change
