ProMax blocks – saturator
This video illustrates the capabilities of the Saturator block within ProMax.
This video illustrates the EZ Setup Tool feature within a ProMax simulation. This tool works as a shortcut for the Scenario Tool. The EZ Setup Tool allows the user to specify which variables to change and what range of values to use for each variable. ProMax will then generate the desired ...
This video illustrates the process of back blending in ProMax. Back blending is a method used to estimate the inlet conditions by adding up the measured gas, hydrocarbon liquid, and water outlets. This is often used for estimating emissions off hydrocarbon tanks and water tanks.
This video illustrates the Line Sizing analysis available in ProMax. This analysis will calculate the necessary pipe size to keep the pressure drop and/or velocity below a user-defined limit. Erosional Velocity may also be calculated.
This video illustrates how to use the Import/Export features between Excel and ProMax. Information can be imported from Excel into ProMax, and ProMax calculations can be exported into Excel for reporting.
This video illustrates the use of the Cross Flowsheet Connector shape, which allows for stream information to be passed from one flowsheet to another.
This video illustrates how to calculate recoveries within ProMax. Column recoveries and flowsheet recoveries are created automatically within ProMax. User-defined recoveries can also be created. Ethane recovery and sulfur recovery are both demonstrated.
This video demonstrates tips for getting difficult columns to converge within a ProMax simulation. The Convergence tab within a column is discussed as well as what column specifications are easiest to solve. A pumparound estimate is also demonstrated.
This video illustrates the Relief Valve Sizing analysis in ProMax. This analysis calculates the required orifice area for a given flow at relief conditions, following API 520 or other international standards.
This video illustrates the Distillation Curves analysis within ProMax streams. This analysis can generate the following boiling curve types: TBP, ASTM D86, ASTM D1160, ASTM D2887/SD, and EFV.
This video illustrates the Control Valve analysis that can be performed within any stream in ProMax. This analysis calculates valve opening, valve Cv, and pressure drop according to the selected valve type. The video also shows how these calculations can be applied inside of a valve block in a simulation.
