Ramp up Reliability With Low-Touch Machine Learning for Hyper Compressor Monitoring

When hyper compressors fail, the cost of production losses can range from tens of thousands to millions of dollars per occurrence. In this white paper, learn how companies are using Aspen Mtell to recognize the early indications of hyper compressor failure, reducing unplanned downtime and catching problems earlier—allowing more lead time to take appropriate action.

Use Advanced Simulation to Improve Processes Involving Solids

Whether particles are being formed, reduced in size, enlarged, participating in reactions, or just being separated from a fluid stream, ignoring or poorly modeling the solids processing steps may lead to lost opportunities, including cost reductions and quality improvements. The main challenges that arise when optimizing or troubleshooting a solids process include inefficient designs due to separate modeling of fluids and solids sections, overdesign of equipment, high-energy demands, reduced yields and quality variability. Modeling the solids section of a process is important for many common processes including specialty chemicals, agrochemicals, metals and mining, pharmaceuticals, biofuels and more. This paper describes the approach for incorporating granular solids and the corresponding solids processing steps when modeling processes.

Five Keys to a Successful APC Program

The success of an APC program is measured in many ways, but the overall success is integral to achieving operational excellence. For example, an APC program should safely capture benefits during testing, capture all the potential benefits with aggressive full scope controllers, and create an APC culture and organization. Download this white paper to learn more about these concepts, as well as several others, which are key to a successful APC program.

Three Essential Operations in a Plant: Simulation Models Turn Innovative Ideas Into Reality

Whether it’s a pilot plant or a complex petrochemical plant, these facilities rarely run like a well-oiled machine. There are always unknown variable dependencies that are difficult to understand, and there’s substantial room for improvement. In many situations, optimization is not the focus for plants because there are issues with reliability and safety that take precedence. Does this sound familiar? The ability to simplify job tasks and boost efficiency will greatly enhance plant performance but also, make your job easier

Multiphase Pipe Flow Modeling in Aspen HYSYS

Multiphase flow through pipes is characterized by the flow regime, liquid hold-up and pressure gradient. Accurate prediction of these flow attributes is necessary for designing and maintaining pipelines and flowlines in the oil and gas industry. Aspen HYSYS provides a number of flow correlations for modeling multiphase pipe flow. To aid the user and provide a basis for comparison, the performance of correlations for different pipeline geometries, fluids, and flow regimes was analyzed. This paper discusses these analyses.
