Screen new processes more quickly and efficiently.
process alternatives in the laboratory, evaluate “make versus buy” decisions
and select synthetic routes for new molecules. Develop the synthetic route
coming from the laboratory and map conceptual processes to recipes. Aspen Batch
Process Developer quickly evaluates process alternatives, generates material
balances, performs cycle-time calculations and develops cost estimates during
the early stages of process definition.
Reduce time-to-market for process scale-up.
Develop kilo-scale processes from bench-scale recipes.
Perform process-fit analysis, whereby a process is matched with the best
possible site. Automatically generate plant operating instructions and process
flow diagrams, as well as perform advanced emission calculations from a single
recipe. These applications reduce time-to-market for process scale-up and
maximize return on assets for existing pilot plant facilities.
Improve asset utilization and reduce overdesign.
Scale up the pilot process to
full-scale. Perform an economic analysis of the process. Design the needed
waste treatment and utility systems by calculating the peak-load requirements
on shared resources (e.g., utilities, waste treatment, raw materials, and
labor). Enable better planning of capacity expansions.
Increase yield, purity, product, and solvent recovery.
Eliminate bottlenecks by identifying time- and
size-limiting equipment at existing plants and investigate capacity expansions.
Simulate single- or multi-product campaigns, evaluate equipment utilization,
and calculate in-plant emission profiles.
More efficiently create documentation.
Provide consistency and clarity in assumptions, data,
documentation, and results. Use standard or customized templates and input
information one, reuse data, and automate documentation. Bring people
up-to-spend more quickly with an easy-to-use interface.
Track plant emissions.
Calculate in-plant emission and effluent profiles, including
temperature, flowrates, and composition, and meet environmental regulations. Consider
the effects of control efficiencies on emissions.
Utilize the world’s largest database for physical properties.
Aspen Batch Process Developer uses
Aspen Properties, the world’s most comprehensive physical property database.
Employ state-of-the-art activity coefficient models and equations of state
including extensive databases of a wide range of components.
Get started with sample models.
Aspen Batch Process Developer includes 9 examples.
Each example comes with brief instructions and can serve as training or a
starting point for your process design.
