ChemSim's modeling and engineering services optimize processes, generating
increased efficiency and cost savings. Whatever your project, we can help
you map out a simulation plan, including:
- Select the appropriate tools. As an independent company, ChemSim is
not constrained by any specific vendor. We can offer independent advice
in selecting the appropriate package.
- Identify the necessary data to collect.
- Determine the approach to take to establish a good base case - the
fundamental basis of any successful simulation project!
- Develop the model.
- Validate the model's reliability with plant data
- Answer the initial process questions.
- Train your staff.
Probably the most popular process simulator is the Excel® spreadsheet.
We can help you when it is time to take that spreadsheet model to the
ChemSim provides process simulation and improvement services to companies
that no longer have internal capabilities in this area or that wish to
supplement their internal capability. As ChemSim is an external resource,
contracts may be short or long-term, depending on your company's needs.
Potential Project Areas
Using real plant data to determine process parameters by fitting to the
data. The are several tools and many techniques involved here.
Interfacing to different databanks and extracting data
Developing custom data packages for specific industries that always deal
with the same limited set of components.
Typical software versioning problem with incompatible files due to software
upgrades, or using a different simulator.
Upgrading Old Models
Old simulation projects completed by engineers who have moved on. We can
help translate and update these old models to profit from the original
investment made in those models
Development of custom USER models
Adding a customized unit operation into a flowsheet is a powerful feature,
but it is a non-trivial task.
VB interface development
Modern simulators have an open architecture that allows a great deal of
flexibility and potential customization. We can work with you to achieve
this without devoting excessive resources.
Where best to leverage XML, use it for batch simulation, BatchML, or use
it to more easily allow the transport of metadata across multiple interfaces.
ChemSim is an independent company. When dealing with
commercial flowsheet simulation packages we are not constrained by any
specific vendor. We can offer independent advice in selecting the appropriate
In addition to our core team of experts we can also utilize
other independent consultants who work with us as needed. This provides
us the flexibility of offering a comprehensive suite of services that
cover a wide range of expertise.
Where possible we incorporate your process data along
with fundamental physical property information to provide the most comprehensive
model that answers your specific needs. In addition to any process optimization,
it is always important to optimize any modeling effort so that precious
resources are not squandered.
Our team of engineers has many years of experience solving
complex problems. We are used to dealing with complex and difficult applications,
processes involving highly non-ideal mixtures, complex reactions, or highly
integrated flowsheets with multiple recycle streams. We don't pretend
to know all the specifics of our client's processes, but we work together
to produce modeling solutions that can provide substantial economic
Today the simulation companies are ever expanding their
product offerings. Do you know the best ways to leverage the various process
We work with you on the scope and objectives of the project
to produce a Simulation Plan. Then we work with you to develop the model,
validate its reliability with actual plant data, use the model to answer
the initial process questions, and train your staff in its use.
