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).

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.

Four Keys to Agility and Resilience for EPCs

Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) firms with a large presence in the process industries are preparing for a major disruption to their business. The now inevitable scaling back, delaying or cancelling of projects will have a tremendous effect on these companies. A top priority for EPCs, which typically operate on very thin margins and own few assets, will be preserving cash.

The Digital Twin and the Smart Enterprise

Across the globe, leading organizations are embracing and implementing advanced digital technologies. The digital transformation journey will change the nature of asset intensive industries, particularly the energy and chemicals businesses. In that context, digital twins — virtualized copies of physical assets and their operating behaviors — will play key roles. For the digital twins we create today, a key concept is the power of AI in providing insight and advice against the virtual data. Download this white paper to learn about these essential keys to your digital twin strategy:

Solving Three Common Problems Through SRU Simulation

Small operational issues in the sulphur recovery unit (SRU) can lead to higher emisisons — or worse, a frustrating and costly shutdown. Simulation of the SRU can enable more reliable operations and fewer shutdowns through the prevention of issues and quick and effective troubleshooting. In this paper, we present three common operational issues and show how simulation was used to prevent or quickly resolve the situation.
