KBC Advanced Technologies plc (KBC) announces the release of Petro-SIM Express™.
The latest addition to KBC’s software solutions, Petro-SIM Express, is an affordable alternative for process simulation. Petro-SIM Express can be used for improving unit throughput, monitoring, debottlenecking, capital expenditure evaluation, and process design for refining and petrochemical facilities. Petro-SIM Express includes a proven set of tools for process simulation: over 25 thermodynamic property packages, over 1000 components and a comprehensive suite of standard unit operations, logic models, and calculation tools. For easy setup, fast calculations, and quick data access, Petro-SIM Express features a graphical interface, built-in plots, and an interactive calculation engine. Petro-SIM Express is compatible with KBC’s groundbreaking Petro-SIM™ flowsheet, and it can read files created in other process simulators, maximizing your investment in simulation.
One feature available only in Petro-SIM and Petro-SIM Express is KBC’s best-in-class refinery oil characterization package, proven in modelling over 120 refineries world-wide. The package has the capability to manage in-house assay information, as well as access the world-renowned BP assay data through KBC’s crude assay database (CADB). Over 100 refinery-based properties are available, many of which are only obtainable from KBC.
KBC’s Hydrodesulfurization reactor model is included within this new version of the program. Petro-SIM Express can also be easily upgraded to include any of the world-leading KBC Profimatics SIM Suite of reactor models for catalytic reforming, fluid cat cracking, alkylation, coking, visbreaking, hydrocracking, and hydrotreating, or upgraded to Petro-SIM for multi-unit modelling or refinery-wide optimisation.
