Software: Improve chemical processes, predictive modeling, viscosity simulation

Invensys Process Systems unveils PRO/II 8.2 simulation software to improve chemical processes with predictive modeling and better understanding of viscosity and electrolytes. See screen shot.

07/21/2008


Plano, TX – Invensys Process Systems (IPS) has released the newest version of SimSci-Esscor's PRO/II software, a steady-state process simulator used to design, analyze, and improve chemical processes. The software can be used on Microsoft Vista Enterprise and Business operating systems; IPS has provided anupdated install procedure and support for Microsoft Office 2007 .

PRO/II 8.2 simulation software includes improvements for modeling heavy oils and electrolytic systems and for generating pure component properties. The simulator improves heavy-oils modeling with a new liquid viscosity prediction method that prevents viscosity from being skewed by the heaviest petroleum component.
The software has integrated the Mixed Solvent Electrolyte model, the latest electrolyte model from OLI Systems, capable of reproducing speciation, chemical, and phase equilibria, applicable to water-organic-salt systems and aqueous solutions from dilute to fused-salt limit. It is also integrated with ProPred, a property prediction tool from the Computer Aided Process-Product Engineering Center of the Technical University of Denmark that allows pure component properties to be predicted from structure based on a multi-level group contribution method.
According to Joseph McMullen, PES product manager for IPS, " PRO/II 8.2 software shows our dedication to both the hydrocarbon and chemical processing industries. We have developed features for each industry, as well as introduced features and infrastructure upgrades that will enhance the user experience of all of our customers. Our technological advancements in the area of modeling heavy oils truly set PRO/II simulation software apart from the competition, which continues to have issues accurately modeling heavy oils."
