Conceptual Design Studies

mass transfer technology concept design

With our extensive knowhow and unique range of separation technologies, We can provide you with conceptual designs to support you in the development of new or improved processes to help you find the best solution

In the beginning of any project, not all the process conditions are clearly defined. It is necessary to get a clear understanding of the conditions before choosing the best separation technology for the particular application.

In Case of new plants it may be totally new products and processes, whereas in case of existing columns it may be changed process conditions, different throughput requirements etc. we can support you in the decision making process by conducting conceptual studies including

  • Process development study
  • Feasibility study
  • Engineering study
  • Trouble shooting study

Along with theoretical investigations, we can also help you verify the results with the help of tests performed at our test centres

Broad range of separation technologies

Owing to our broad experience in the field of separation technology, we can help you find the best process technologies for your separation tasks including

  • Distillation
  • Absorption
  • Stripping
  • Reactive distillation
  • Liquid -liquid extraction

Simulation tools

Using the latest simulation tools the separation process is calculated. The basic process data is provided by the customer or taken from literature or data banks. Sometimes pilot trials are performed to gain access to additional data. We use the following simulation tools for process design

  • Aspen Plus
  • Aspen custom modeler (ASPENTECH)

Simulation tools

The results of the study which are summarised in a project report, contain the following

  • Process description
  • Process flow diagram
  • Process data
  • Equipment list
  • Recommendations
