Binary distillation app upgrades

user/ March 31, 2019/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

This app now allows the user to alter the thermal state of the feed stream (i.e. the q value of the column) by adjusting the steam flow to a pre-feed heat exchanger. Additional improvements: new steam flow valve improved valve behavior improved stability of column simulation Click here to check it out. 

Interactive binary distillation app released

user/ March 3, 2019/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

The first version of our interactive binary distillation application is now available. This app lets the user manipulate valves and observe the effects of varying column reflux and feed rates. A response McCabe-Thiele diagram lets the user see how the system changes from a graphical perspective. More features to come! Click here to check it out

Simple batch reactor module added

We’ve put together a simple batch reactor module for testing purposes. This module lets the user see the effects of varying reaction temperature and initial component concentrations on a simple second-order liquid reaction with the form a + b => c. This will serve as the basis of more complex reactive system modules in the future, so watch this space.

Multi-component flash module added

user/ February 3, 2018/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

We’ve put together a new, interactive separator module that puts you in control of a real, multi-component flash tank. The user can modify the operating pressure, temperature and feed flowrate and immediately see the effects in both the simulation canvas and system diagnostic plots. At the time of writing, the module only supports a single tertiary hydrocarbon system (pentane, hexane,

A number of interactive molecular simulation modules have recently been added. These are very basic at the moment but are under active development. The first two modules in the series focus on event-driven molecular dynamics and kinetic Monte-Carlo simulation of simple particle/chemical systems.
