Curve oils

This video illustrates the Curve Oil feature within ProMax.  Curve Oils can be used to define any oil cut by using its boiling point curve. A crude oil example is demonstrated in this video.

Multistage refrigerant tips

This video illustrates useful tips for solving multi-stage chillers in ProMax®. The video demonstrates a simple method for estimating the amount of refrigerant required. A solver to find the actual refrigerant flow required is then created followed by a discussion on solver algorithms and solver ...

Depressurization tool

This video illustrates how to use the Depressurization Example stencil within ProMax. The video describes the different types of cases and calculations performed by this stencil and demonstrates its use for two different cases. A short demonstration of how to calculate the relief temperature at the relief ...

ProMax blocks - callouts

This video illustrates the callout shape within ProMax, which allows the user to display information about a stream on the flowsheet.

ProMax Blocks - property tables

This video illustrates the property table shape within ProMax, which allows the user to display information about multiple streams or blocks side-by-side on the flowsheet.

Scripting in ProMax solvers/specifiers

This video illustrates how to use JScript within ProMax Solvers & Specifiers.  This scripting includes if/else statements and Math functions for more complex calculations.

ProMax reports

This video illustrates the different methods for generating a report within ProMax.  ProMax reporting allows for complete customization of reported data and formatting to report what you want, how you want it.

ProMax column sizing

This video illustrates the column sizing features available within ProMax.  Towers can be sized using trays or random/structured packing.  Existing tower internals may be input, or the required diameter may be calculated for design cases.

ProMax blocks - pipeline

This video illustrates the pipeline block available within ProMax. Multiple segments can be created within the same block to account for fittings, elevation changes, reducers, etc.  Insulation can also be included. Attaching a Q-stream to the block allows for heat transfer to the surroundings to ...

Scenario tool – EZ setup tool

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 ...
