ProSim, the process simulation software house, release a new version of Simulis Thermodynamics, its software component dedicated to thermo-physical properties calculation and available as an MS-Excel add-in, a MATLAB toolbox or as a module pluggable in any other software that requires quality thermo-physical properties.
This new version integrates additional calculation capabilities for properties (fugacity, internal energy…), news flashes (temperature-volume, enthalpy-internal energy, internal energy-volume…), as well as derivatives of available properties, with respect to temperature, pressure, or mole number.
Additionally, Simulis Thermodynamics now offers the ability to automatically generate PSF (Process Simulation File) files, directly usable by the Aspen TASC (HTFS) software, for heat exchanger calculations. These files contain properties for liquid and vapour phases such as specific heat, molecular weight, viscosity, thermal conductivity or surface tension, tabled with respect to temperature and pressure. For diphasic mixtures, Simulis Thermodynamics provides enthalpy data such as temperature, pressure, enthalpy and vapour ratio.
Particularly relevant for exchanger manufacturers and their customers, this new feature allows TASC users with a limited thermodynamic database to access one of the richest thermodynamic packages available and enhance the quality of their exchangers design calculations at reasonable price.
ProSim is an independent company, founded in 1989, with its headquarter in Labège (Toulouse - France). The company provides state of the art simulation and optimization software that allows process industries to increase their efficiency and their return on investment. ProSim solutions are designed for applications in the chemical, the refining, the gas treatment and the specialties chemical industries as well as in the pharmaceutical, the food processing and the energy industries. Its activities also comprise engineering process consulting and custom software development.
ProSim solutions are used to improve process design, increase plant efficiency and reduce their impact on environment. Thanks to long term partnerships with major research centres and to substantial investment in R&D, ProSim continuously develops innovative software and has become a recognised player on the international market. The success of the company comes from the efficiency and the robustness of the solutions and of the calculation packages it proposes, but also from the quality of the services it provides. The expertise and the know-how of ProSim personnel covers vast domains, including thermodynamics, physico-chemical phenomenon modelling, process simulation, energy integration, optimization techniques, numerical methods, software architecture, and GUI development.
ProSim is active 43 countries around the world, with over 500 customers among which major actors like Air Liquide, Akzo Nobel, Alfa Laval, Arkema, Braskem, Ciba, Cognis, EDF, Linde, Pharmacia, Praxair, Schering, Sintef, Sanofi-Synthelabo, Technip, Total or Wacker.
