Normally undergraduate student projects will involve Aspen Plus or Aspen Properties. To start either of these packages, be sure to look for the corresponding. in 24 Hours. Integrating Aspen Plus into the Chemical Engineering Classroom . Not Recommended: Using lecture time to prepare students for the tutorial. This manual is intended as a guide to using AspenTech’s software. Beginning with Aspen Plus , there is also an XML Results file available from Aspen.

The separation we are making is mostly between ethane and propane.

With a couple general steps, it will be easy to design a heat exchanger network. Because of this, the Operating Specifications at the bottom of the screen should have both condenser and reboiler duty set at 0, which is what we want.

We set the condenser pressure to psia, which is the vapor pressure of iso-Butane at oF. Next, you need to create a Base Directory.

Find your flowsheet and press OK. Click Next when you are done. The “Help” manuals are not easy although they are llus and step-by-step tutorials are non-existent.

I would recommend varying the flowrate from , incrementing by Now assume that you are running a similar experiment, however you now have a mixture of Methanol, and n-Butane mixtureand you wish to obtain an xy, Txy, and KVL diagram of your system.

Aspen Plus User Guide. Think of the flowsheet variable as that which is watched as Aspen performs its calculations, so it would likely be either mole fraction of Ethane in the liquid or vapor streams. Add all component s to the system. Some choices of drums come up; select the top right by clicking on it. The Applied Rheology Process Manual contains 6 volumes covering aspects of industrial rheology, including rheology fundamentals, typical data, and estimations of viscosity data, shear rate and shear stress, as well as flow curve models and more.

This also means that, if you have 10 segments, the Ending Segment is now 9. All electric motors in facility. Even more recently, we have introduced AspenPlus simulation to the Separations Course and we hope this “downward” integration will continue.


We have managed to optimize this column tutorila by varying the pressure of the column and the flowrate of the absorber oil. Wednesday, January 30, It works in a similar fashion as FACT method, by pro-rating each item and area, but does so in a more detailed manner. The temperature difference between hot and cold streams at any enthalpy must always have this DTmin to ensure minimal capital cost.

Click OK to map. This should select all data below it. Since this is an absorber, the feed and outlet streams all leave either the top Segment 1 of the column or the bottom Segment 11 of it, with the gas entering from the bottom tutoeial the liquid from the top. The methane-rich Residue Gas can then be resold at a higher price than purchased.

You will need to open a file located under C: The more variables or points you have significantly increases the amount of time it takes to run the simulation so choose wisely. In that specific case, select the precipitating salt from the list, then hit OK. Solid Liquid Separation The Solid-Liquid Separation Process Manual contains 11 volumes and covers topics that include equipment selection, cake filtration, clarification filters, thin layer filters, sedimentation processes, aspn centrifugation, sedimenting centrifugation, less common separation processes, filter media, and ancillary processes.

We cannot stress this point enough. Select Map to turn it into an Icarus component.

This includes the stream pressure and temperature conditions. Ethane 30 o A table of your results should now appear. Now you can consider where you can design your heat exchangers, and this is where the Pinch Method comes into consideration. If you were 1.11 with a whole system, there would obviously be more components but these are the only ones pertinent to our little example.

Aspen Process Manual

For having pls composition in terms of mole fractions, you must select Mole-Frac from the menu on the right. We hope that it has been helpful in modeling any absorber or stripper that you have in your design process, or, say, if you are furiously writing up your Stripping column report for UO Lab one qspen two days before it is due because you were unable to figure out how to get this part to run. Click 111.


the Databanks tab, and highlight all of the fields on the right. However, it is always recommended that hand-calculations of these are done before aspe, since there is no real basis for comparison. Applied Rheology The Applied Rheology Process Manual contains 6 volumes covering aspects of axpen rheology, including rheology fundamentals, typical data, and estimations of viscosity data, shear rate and shear stress, as well as flow curve models and more. Note that the hot and cold Pinch temperatures are indicated on the top and bottom of the diagram.

This should include your group partners and you. But it’s a terrible idea if you connect to the Internet through your LAN, using a software or hardware router, since it will block File and Printer Sharing. Some OSBL facilities to consider: To extract these, we first cool our feed to oF by heat exchanging with our cold residue gas, and then with propane refrigerant, thereby causing condensation of the heavier hydrocarbons.

Solvent Extraction The Solvent Extraction Process Manual contains 8 volumes covering topics that include general principles, liquid-liquid separation fundamentals, solvents, thtorial processes, phase separation, equipment, recommended procedures, and related process technology. Just start from the first branching polar vs.

The feed is then introduced to the bottom of an absorber, where chilled lean oil nonane is introduced at the top. First we need to set up our example simulation.

Modeling Coal Combustion

We have only worked on a simple case here, but, much like all chemical engineering courses, it is our wish that you are able to adapt what you have learned here to your personal situation. Our system has a number of nonpolar components, so start from there, and continue on. But this method has some issues with compatibility that need to be taken into account first.

Click Next, then choose the plot type there is probably only 1 or 2 options tuhorial go to the next screen. This is done by clicking the button that looks like.
