List of software used by chemical engineering professionals

Recommended Posts



Aspen

HYSYS

Promax

gproms

chemcad

prosim

pdms

autocad

microsoft visio ( to draw pfd/pid)

If you decide to purse education to Master and PhD, you'd better learn matlab, comsul, ansys and labview, but above list is a good ( not complete) one.

Recently, I got familiar with below software:

mysep to design separator

iprsm to design safety valves

prv2size to design safety valves ( free software)

Iomosaic for process dafety

you need both process simulators and equipment designer

Various software useful to chem enggs and there applications :
 chemcad n aspen hyses
aspen hysys is used for petrochemical and oil and gas industry, where as aspen plus and chemcad are used for speciality chemical and pharma. These are simulation softwares as u know all these and are basically used for predicting the results for ur system. Please note these are not design s/w. For example u can simulate a exchager in aspen hysys but for designing u need to use HTRI.Similarly there are softwares like korf which are used for pump hydraulics.For doing network hydraulics  pipenet is used. For example cooling water network or steam network. For doing cross country pipeline olga can ve used. For sizing flare flarenet is used. For hazop studies one can use pha pro. For flare analysis wrt to burner flaresim is used. Apart from these are other software available like flowmaster this is used for surge analysis. So these are the major software used for designing in oil and gas sector.

You can download aspen 9/hysys 9/promax/pdms/gproms/chemcad/comsol/matlab/olga/pipenet/flaresim/pro treat/petrosim and many many software from downloadly.ir for free with their keygen. please note that all of them were tested on windows 7 and may not work on windows 10. and you can download prv2size from below link for free:

http://valvesizing.pentair.com/home/Software/PRV2SIZEoverview.aspx

downloadly.ir is an iranian/persian website. Please let me know if you can't fine the download links. please turn off your antivirus software while installing the software.

Lets make the list of software used by chemical engineers. Also suggest which software should learn during college days.

please add software name and its application by replying to this post.

Pipephase from schneider (before SimSci) is used for hydraulic calculations in pipe networks.

Pro-II ifrom schneider (before SimSci) is used for HMB in refinery, exploration and oil and gas facilities, among others.

Aspen Hysis from AspenOne Suite is used for HMB in refinery, exploration and oil and gas facilities, among others with more accuracy depending of the case.

AspenPlus from AspenOne is used specifically for petrochemical facilities, ethanol and pharma facilities.

Aspen EDR from AspenOne Suite and HTRI is used for thermal design of heat transfer equipments as Shell & Tube, Plate and Frame, Spiral Heat Exchanger, Furnace, Double Tube Heat Exchanger. etc.

Korf is used for pump hydraulics system.

Pipenet is used for fire fighting pump hydraulics systems as well as AFT Fathom and AFT Sprinkler.

Visual flow is used for hydraulic calculation in pipe networks based on isometrics.

DinSim, Olga, WinSim are used for cross country pipeline as dynamic calculations.

Flarenet, Implant, Flaresim are used for flare analysis including all network.

Pha Pro is used for Risk Studies as Hazop, Hazid, SIL as LOPA method).

Quest from Canary, PHAST from DNVGL, Breeze from Trinity Consultants, Superchems from iomosaic principally for Quantitative Risk Assessment.

Caesar-II is used for pipe flexibility calculations.

PVELITE and Compress are used for mechanical design of pressure vessels.

TANK and E-Tank are used for mechanical design of API 650 Tanks and API 653.

Visio is used for PFD and P&ID drawings as well as AutoCAD, AutoPlant, SPPID.

CadWorx and SP3D used for 3D sketch drawings to generate layouts, isometrics, BOM.

Others for instruments calculation.
