Engineering Software Includes Expanded Activation Capability

Dec. 18, 2013
Enhancements include a new crude assay data system and new reactor models for heavy crudes and expanded solids models.

Aspen Technology announced the availability of aspenONE version 8.4 software, featuring new activated exchanger design and rating (EDR) and updates to activated energy and activated economics in Aspen HYSYS and Aspen Plus.  In addition, the new software adds crude assay data and new reactor models for refinery modeling with Aspen HYSYS and expands solids models for chemicals in Aspen Plus.

First introduced in aspenONE V8 software, AspenTech’s activation capability in Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS enables process engineers to do instant analysis of heat exchangers, energy, and economics without specialist knowledge of these engineering disciplines.  This unified engineering environment was designed to enable engineers to work more efficiently and achieve better results within tight project timelines. 

The new release introduces Activated EDR, an activation capability to optimize heat exchanger design and operation.  From within the new Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS engineering environment, users can do rigorous heat exchanger design and view heat exchanger status to quickly perform revamp studies and debottlenecking.

The latest Activated Energy automates pinch analysis for non-experts, adds the ability to group process units in a flow diagram and optimize energy across the grouping.  Activated Energy also identifies optimum design modifications for energy savings and automatically recommends lower cost utilities that are available.

Activated Economics adds cost overlays to process flow diagrams, annual updates for cost estimation, and enhanced features for upstream safety standards.
