Equipment design is one of our main areas activity. With the support of the process simulation software CHEMCAD, we size columns, heat exchangers, pressure relief systems. The design is based heuristic methods
How it works
The rigorous heat exchanger design is carried out for predefined product and utility flow properties (temperature, pressure, composition). With the consideration of different heat transfer properties (geometry, material), a detailed TEMA sheet with the calculation results is generated. The k-value and the heat transfer area are also available as results.
Valves and Safety Relief Devices
Safety valves and rupture discs
Pipelines and Pipeline Networks
- Pipe diameter
- Pressure drop
After the sizing of individual pipes, a hydraulic flow calculation of the entire pipeline network can also be carried out, in which pumps and compressors are taken into account with their characteristic pump curves.
Rectification and Absorption Columns
The sizing of the columns are performed by taking into account the geometry and mass transport characteristics. The properties of the packing material or the column trays, the flooding point and the number of theoretical separation stages are considered in the calculations.
Thus the interdependent column parameters can be calculated:
The calculation results are then validated by using a non-equilibrium model.
Tanks and Reflux Drums
The design results are checked through dynamic simulations.
