SuperChems helps process safety and risk engineers overcome the shortcomings of simple relief design techniques which can often lead to over-design, and more importantly, sometimes leading to under-design.
We've added a new unit system, improved the PRV object and the compressor performance, enhanced the two-phase/universal vessel model, as well as reactions handling, enabling you to achieve even more proficiency.
We've reduced the number of steps and time it takes to accomplish tasks, so you can now complete work 2-3 times faster.
We've migrated 20 consequence models with brand new facelift for explosions, fire and dispersion calculations, so the interface elements are easier to access, understand, and use.
We've optimized the user experience, resulting in better usability and shorter calculation times.

SuperChems™ helps process safety and risk engineers overcome the shortcomings of simple relief design techniques which can often lead to over-design, and more importantly, under-design. It offers a variety of well-validated models for single- and/or multi-phase reacting flow, dispersion analysis, droplet dynamics, and fire and explosion dynamics. All models in SuperChems™ are true multi-component models with support for petroleum fractions and mixture toxicity, and they are optimized for user experience, resulting in excellent usability and short calculation times.
A large oil refinery with a very complex flare network had become so complex that the tools the refinery was using to evaluate the flows through the flare network could not adequately model the system. The facility had six separate flares, three main headers, and hundreds of relief devices that discharged into the system. As the flare system was modified over the years, multiple cross-connection points were added between the headers in an effort to balance the flow rates through the headers with minimal piping changes.
The client was storing reactive materials in vessels that could be subject to fire exposure. They wanted to be sure that the relief protection on the vessels was correctly sized, or if not, what changes were necessary for an effective relief system.
Master techniques for addressing relief sizing for various scenarios, relief piping system design, flare header modeling and consequence modeling.
