Simplify Creation of Distillation Schemes

Aspen Distillation Synthesis enables rapid conceptual design of distillation schemes for the separation of chemical mixtures with non-ideal, vapor-liquid equilibrium. Use Aspen Distillation Synthesis to reveal the limits of feasible separations for individual columns and to design advanced distillation schemes for the separation of such mixtures.

Build Distillation Models Directly in Aspen Plus

Build conceptual design models with Aspen Plus, which contains six standard distillation column models.

  • Rigorous two-three phase fractionation (most popular)
  • Shortcut distillation rating and design
  • Rigorous counter-current extraction
  • And more!

You also have the ability to import schemas directly from Aspen Distillation Synthesis.

Get a More Detailed View of Your Distillation Columns

Column Analysis in Aspen Plus allows you to immediately identify hydraulic issues (i.e. flooding and weeping) and understand the operating envelope for the entire column. Evaluate how modifications in packing and trays change the hydraulic operability of your columns. Downcomer choke flooding is now included in V10 to provide an indication of ineffective vapor disengagement at higher liquid flows.
