Watch this demonstration of how to build a chemical mixture in SuperChems X (v10.0), a valuable tool for investigating the composition, occurrence, distribution, and potential toxicity of chemical mixtures.
X marks the spot! Process Safety Office® SuperChems™ v10.0 is filled with compelling advancements:
Optimized the user experience, resulting in better usability and shorter calculation times.
Streamlined the graphical interface so it is both interactive and responsive, leveraging the latest technology.
Reduced the number of steps and time it takes to accomplish tasks.
All flow and network models completed. Cyclone separator control model added.
New properties features added: Vapor liquid equilibrium and bash queue.
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.
Complete pressure relief and flare system (PRFS) and consequence analysis capabilities, fully integrating with the backend engine.
More dispersion (indoor) and explosion models (deflagration) added.
Upgraded help structure, incorporating the National Board Pressure Relief Device Certification NB-18 and common vendor PRV data.
Enhanced and optimized the software engine, improving its speed and accuracy.
Consequence models and explosions, fire and dispersion calculations interface elements are now easier to access, understand, and use.
Integrated reporting functionality, delivering streamlined reports and enhanced readability.
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. It is the only platform that integrates consequence and risk analysis, chemical reactivity management, and relief and flare systems evaluation and design.
Can rapid identification, screening, and ranking of STHE shell failure risks be performed? This paper demonstrates a systematic work process and methodology to evaluate the risks of potential STHE shell failure when subjected to pressures and loads from a sudden tube rupture.
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.
