ProMax - Process Focus

ProMax is a powerful and versatile process simulation resource. Its level of flexibility is difficult to describe in one simple document. To enable better understanding of ProMax, particular abilities of ProMax are detailed within what we call a Process Focus.

Amine Sweetening

For over two decades, TSWEET was known as the industry standard for simulating amine sweetening facilities.  In an effort to better serve our clients, BR&E has now incorporated TSWEET into ProMax.  This union has significantly enhanced the capabilities of our software, especially in the area of amine sweetening. Benefits include more complete thermodynamic models, calculation of more thermo-physical properties and better integration with hydrocarbon packages and unit operations. These benefits allow you to model many more processes such as complex absorber / stripper configurations, three-phase flashes and oils in amine units. The following amines are available either individually or as blends: MEA, DEA, DGA, MDEA, DIPA, TEA, and AMP. ProMax also introduces BR&E’s new Electrolytic-ELR model. This new model is far superior to the NRTL acid gas model in TSWEET. The sweetening package also continues TSWEET’s unprecedented ability to model selective absorption using CO2 kinetics. More...

Glycol Dehydration

BR&E is the leader in predicting the performance of both glycol dehydration and hydrate suppression systems. Benefits include rigorous predictions for water content, hydrate formation temperature, water dew point and CO2 freeze out. The best in industry BTEX solubility predictions from PROSIM have been carried forward into ProMax. More...

Equipment Rating/Sizing

ProMax contains many capabilities for sizing equipment. The Heat Exchanger Rating package included in ProMax can help engineers improve existing plants or design new processes. Simulation results and user-supplied information are incorporated into design calculations for analyzing a variety of Heat Exchangers. Preliminary design estimates are currently available for four basic types of Heat Exchangers: Double Pipe, Shell and Tube, Fin Fan, and Compact. ProMax also sizes and rates columns with either trays, random packing or structured packing. Two and three phase vertical or horizontal separators may be sized. Also included is the ability to model both plant piping and long distance transmission pipelines. More...

Crude Oil Refining

Characterize both single and multi-component oils for use in common gas processing and refining applications. A blending utility is also included to blend any number of predefined oils in the system. All common assay data types are available. Model both atmospheric and vacuum crude towers along with all product distillation columns. More...

LPG Recovery

Model separation processes such as cryogenic, refrigeration, J-T, lean oil and other common gas processing applications. Heat exchanger rating calculations may be integrated directly to the process for predicting actual exchanger performance based on the provided geometry. Product treating may also be included in the same project. More...

Caustic Treating

With the improved electrolytic property packages available in ProMax, caustic treating may be modeled to predict the absorption of acid gas compounds and sulfur species such as H2S, CO2, and mercaptans from liquid or vapor streams. More...
