SimSci-Esscor latest version of PRO/II software

Posted: 15 December 2005

Latest version of PRO/II simulation software from SimSci-Esscor delivers enhanced flowsheet design and process optimization capabilities

The SimSci-Esscor unit of Invensys Process Systems has released Version 7.1 of its PRO/II steady-state flowsheeting and optimization simulation tool. A widely used standard throughout the Oil, Gas, and Hydrocarbon Processing Industries, the PRO/II program is designed to address and solve the complex challenges faced by today’s process and design engineers.

The new version of PRO/II system provides significant new benefits for users through enhanced lifecycle modeling, improved productivity and support for open standards and third-party modeling integration. Under the SIM4ME common modeling framework, PRO/II Version 7.1 enables the seamless transfer of data from the PRO/II environment to the ROMeo environment for Online Optimization and Performance Monitoring. The SIM4ME framework also allows users to easily migrate flowsheets created in competitive products to the more advanced PRO/II environment.

Another significant PRO/II Version 7.1 feature is the integration of SimSci-Esscor’s PIPEPHASE steady-state multiphase flow simulation package into PRO/II for embedded upstream hydraulic network calculation along with downstream process flowsheets. The interface supports recycle streams and integrated optimization, allowing rigorous modeling of the interactions between piping/production networks and associated processing facilities.

As previously announced, PRO/II now also provides integrated Rate-Based distillation technology via the RATEFRAC module as well integration with KG-TOWER design software from Koch-Glitsch.

Version 7.1 also includes new thermodynamics functionality for handling complex chemical systems plus several additional enhancements that can significantly improve engineering productivity by reducing model development and convergence time.
