Be sure to attend one or both of the following sponsored technology workshops:

Minimize Costs without Compromising Safety – Ensure Process Safety with Rigorous PSV Sizing

Tuesday, April 24, 1:30-2:45 pm - Marriott, Atlanta

Reduce CAPEX and engineering time by accurately sizing pressure relief devices while still meeting all process safety requirements. In this workshop, you’ll learn to use the expert-trusted calculations and guided workflows within Aspen HYSYS® and Aspen Plus® to maximize your confidence in design decisions. This is how Technip reduced its PSV sizing time by 90 percent for a supercritical fire case — without the loss of safety considerations.

Debottleneck and Troubleshoot Distillation - Perform Column Rating Studies to Determine Column Capacity

Wednesday, April 25, 8:00-9:15 am - Marriott, Los Angeles

Distillation columns are both capital and energy intensive therefore columns need to run at optimal conditions to ensure high separation efficiency and product quality.  Rigorous modeling of columns with hydraulics can greatly improve energy utilization and reduce capital costs. In this workshop, you’ll learn to leverage hydraulic plots and guided workflows to interactively design, rate and troubleshoot distillation columns in Aspen Plus®. This is how Braskem achieved a 12% aromatic yield improvement leveraging distillation column modeling.
