Software offers engineers greater range in plant processes
UniSim Design simulation software provides engineers a greater range of tools to build and test plant processes. The simulation and modeling software will include a flare analyzer that enables process engineers to design, improve, and optimize industrial flare systems. Additionally, UniSim Design will support XML-based case portability to allow users to share process design information with ASPEN HYSYS, HTFS, and HTFS+ offered by AspenTech. Both features should be available in early 2010.
UniSim Design’s interactive software allows engineers to create and analyze both steady-state and dynamic models for plant design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, business planning, and asset management. The addition of the flare analyzer will allow users to create more-complete models of their processes and further improve overall plant efficiency. Flare systems are integral parts of many industrial processes where proper design and analysis is required to promote safe and efficient operations. Additionally, the new case-portability feature delivers greater flexibility by enabling Honeywell and AspenTech simulation users to access each other’s process models.
“These UniSim Design enhancements provide users with a more comprehensive simulation solution and provide for collaboration both in and outside their organizations,” said Ashish Gaikwad, advanced solutions director for Honeywell Process Solutions. “These enhancements fall in line with our approach of improving overall plant safety, reliability and efficiency by giving personnel greater access to the most relevant information.”
