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.

Reactions are introduced to Aspen in a similar manner as they are in Reactors Chapter 7. Think of the flowsheet variable as that which is watched as Aspen performs tutkrial calculations, so it would likely be either mole fraction of Ethane in the liquid or vapor streams.

Click when you are done. You would need to account for the area above and below the equipment. You can either drag the entire area to your project in the left-hand window, or expand the area and drag certain components.

Aspen Plus information

You will, at the very least, see warnings everywhere. However, it is always recommended that hand-calculations of these are done before modeling, since there is no real basis for comparison. You have found out through your various reference sources or your employer that, at atmospheric pressure, methanol boils at 65oC oFso you will be required to heat your stream of methanol obviously without exposure to air. If you are in a Tuesday group, you will need to find this number or more plis information yourself Solution Methodology: Feed, Tops and Bottoms or some variant of them usually works.


This lists ten different configurations use the arrows to scroll up and down — it only looks like it has two options to choose from. The bottoms are then sent to a debutanizer, where saleable butane is removed.

Most of the time you will be dealing with absolute pressure, so if you tell the column that it is operating at 10 inches of water it will treat the system as a vacuum. Click where indicated to either run the Wizard or to share files without running the wizard.

Modeling Coal Combustion

Plastic Pall Rings Packing: If you’re sharing an entire disk, Windows XP gives a warning. Therefore, the first rule of Pinch Technology is: This concludes our discussion on RateFrac columns.

Follow the same procedure for the red arrow on the bottom of the drum. The simplest way of representing a reactor is by using RStoic type reactor.

For our example, we will use 20oF. So, simply click on New, and select the reaction type that fits your reaction.

Our system has a number of nonpolar components, so start from there, and continue on. You typically want tutprial choose a condenser pressure to be the vapor pressure of the component you want to remove at around 20o greater than your cooling temperature.


Aspen Process Manual

The letters FD or PR might be added to the end, depending on whether the stream is a feed or a product. Using the new chosen flowrate, our results are as follows: Pressing the arrow next to the RateFrac block 11.1 give you a list of icons you can use to represent the column.

This ends the first chapter on using Aspen. We have managed to optimize this column just by varying the pressure of the column and the flowrate of the absorber oil. Our wish here is to vary the packing height in the column in order to obtain the desired mole fraction of acetone in the gas outlet stream. Tulsa OK, Recommended Websites: All the selections in a given directory are exactly the same program and only LOOK different so that your flow diagram can look the way you want it. Convention dictates that red lines on top represent hot streams, and blue lines on pkus represent cold streams.

Remember me on this computer.

This way, you and your partners can telecommute and can exchange ideas and work without being physically present.
