Process Simulator Includes PIONA-Based Thermal Cracking Reactors

PIONA-based thermal cracking reactors, plate-fin heat exchanger rating tool, flexible configurations and an oil property regression utility.

The oil property regression utility (OilProp) estimates the interaction parameters of dynamic viscosity and liquid density models to match them to experimental data of oils and their mixtures.

Virtual Materials Group has also added the Expanded Fluid Model to the list of available viscosity models in VMGSim. This model was developed and tested for light hydrocarbons, conventional crude oil, heavy oils and their mixtures as a function of temperature and pressure and can be extended to natural gas processing applications

In addition, the company has included a special mode for the OPC client to link to the OLGA pipeline software from the SPT group.
